Between spending the start of the week looking after cats while my sister did some moving, how long my current exercise routines take, and just general depression over current events, I didn't do much exercise this week.  I resorted to doing something like one of my old...

It's been on the quiet side around here lately.  I've been depressed for the past few days, so it's been hard to find motivation to do much of anything.  It ought to pass with some time, but that's always troublesome while it's going on, and I'm sure it contributed to m...

My leg felt good again after a break and a couple days of slightly lighter load, so I'm ready to ramp it back up again.  I would've preferred to have avoided the injury entirely, of course, but at least it's good that I caught and addressed it before it became something...

Anyone who’s paid attention to my rantings about traps in TTRPGs should know that I think having some understanding of how a trap’s trigger(s) and effect(s) actually work is critical.  Without that information, the players’ potential to interact with the trap is undercu...

I jumped into this new approach, and it seems I jumped a bit too hard, because I hurt something in my right leg.  It doesn't feel serious, and talking over with my trainer friend didn't raise any major concerns on his part either, so I hopeful that some rest and persona...

As mentioned in my last workout recap, I saw a personal trainer to evaluate where I'm at with my fitness level and talk about how to get where I want to be.  On the plus side, I have developed a good amount of raw strength.  On the down side, despite efforts and intenti...

After six straight weeks of five workouts, I dialed back to just four for this week.  Considering how the results went, I'm comfortable with admitting that I needed that extra day to recharge myself.

In related news, I might be shaking up my general regimen soon.  By hap...

In my series of posts on DM+1 play, I spent a fair number of electrons on talking about empowering the player by supporting their choices and intents.  As I'd said then, this is something that I think is a good practice in general, but it's especially important in DM+1...

I'd guess that most people who've swore off eating grains (or at least wheat) have wondered if there's a product that can substitute better for spaghetti than the usual spaghetti squash.  As it turns out, Asian glass noodles (as used in Korean japchae) do a good job of...

As ever, the best laid plans of mice and men....  I had an atypically hectic schedule this week, which prompted me to shuffle around a few workout plans in such a way that I didn't do double weekend challenges after all.  Alas, but I'll just have to try getting back on...
