Well, it's been one day, and I have yet to fap. I did eat quite a bit yesterday, though, but I was able to counter it with a decent workout despite myself.

You see, it wasn't 'till 9:00 pm that I was finally able to convince myself to get up and get on the treadmill. I knew my girlfriend would be getting back from work in less than twenty minutes. This was my mental excuse to quit once I got to the fifteen minute mark. I was ready to jump off the treadmill, call it a nice "warmup" of what will be coming in later days, and let the exhaustion I was beginning to feel cease. I was like that for about ten minutes. I kept on saying I was about to quit, but I kept on going. I started thinking about some remarkable idiocy I'd seen on K5, and then I just kept on going. Suddenly, I found myself near the end of the workout, and the exhaustion was gone. Instead, it was replaced with an energy. I suddenly felt like I wasn't going fast enough, and cranked the machine to six miles per hour on an 7% incline. This was a full jog, and it was the first time I'd jogged in some time. I could feel the impact of my weight on each of my legs as they came down on the ground, only to push me farther forward. I only did this for a short time, since I began so late in the workout, but by the time I finished I was out of breath, and feeling great. The final readout said I had burned 575 calories. Not even half of the calories I consumed during lunch, but still satisfying.

I punctuated the treadmill workout with fifteen curls using the 30 pound dumbbells. I'm not as interested in weight workouts right now, because I'm already very strong (not to mention I get a good weight workout carrying around heavy objects barbacking). Right now my greatest problem is speed and endurance. Now, speed is something I can put on the shelf for now. I was never very good at running, and frankly, even when I'm very fit, my frame isn't exactly the type you expect so see winning the fifty-meter. Endurance, on the other hand, is important. Being able to work for long periods of time, that's what really counts.

On to the next point, I've decided to get myself my own site. Right now the setup is still underway, and it will take a while before it's ready to be unveiled to the public. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with it right now. The biggest benifit I'm getting right now, though, is plenty of e-mail addresses, and total control over all of them. That's going to have to keep me satisfied 'till I get some content up there. (Like, after I learn flash...)

Finally, as I mentioned in my K5 diary yesterday, I've recently been taken with the idea of commisioning an artist to do a painting for my living room. All I'll be able to scrape together for it is about $800, so I'm afraid I'll have to sift through the student artists here on campus until I find someone who could really produce something great. (Of course, I'm still in the planning stages, and this is only one of several plans. Somehow I just find this one most captivating, even though it may not be the best choice.)

So, to the wise and insightful crowd here at Adequacy, I ask, do you think commisioning someone would be a good idea?

She's an artist, right?
Are you adequate?

painted by an artist in El Salvador (or perhaps Mexico), anyhow, it is bright and vivid with a typical Latin American flair. Perhaps you could commission an artist of this type for a painting, you would have an advantage of getting art that fits in with your region of America, and helping a Hispanic artist who probably has many mouths to feed.

The disadvantage would be that most Hispanics are staunch members of the Church and would be very reluctant to risk eternal damnation by painting Pagan themed images like a coven copulating around a demon, the sacrifice of a baby, or even naked "sky-clad" cavorting. You may have to settle for the stoning of St. Stephen, or a last supper maybe.

I'll dust off my paints, pencils and inks and make a masterpiece for you. What would you like me to draw/paint? (I don't do sculpture and don't own a camera)

BTW, I'd like $400 up front - Payment of a small advance is customary when commisioning artists. - love it or leave it.
