Day 589: Post-Experiment

It’s good to be back!

I did not enjoy that as much as I thought I would.

First, let’s not kid ourselves. I’m a bit of a mess. Not much of a mess, but a bit of one. So I’ve become… dependent isn’t the word, but over the course of a year and a half this has become an important part of my life. Pre-producing and releasing episodes is… fine, but doesn’t sit right.

Second, I’m not sure I’d listen to this podcast. The personal connection is a super strong one. A litany of tips from strangers is… meh. Not terrible, but if I’m producing something I myself wouldn’t listen to, that seems like kind of a weird move.

Third, it would take a hell of a lot of effort to get up to steam. That’s not a reason not to do something. I’m not afraid of work. But I am aware of my limitations and my constraints, and it would be really hard to make this happen.

But there was a lot I liked! I liked the surprising things I learned. I liked picking up new tips.

It’s been an overall bad week for exercise and diet — the Whole30 thing didn’t even last a week, we bailed on it super fast. I think the podcast helps keep me on track, so now that I’m back to daily this, hopefully everything else will kind of slide into place.
