  1. Get Fit Guy

    Friday, May 24, 2013

    One of the unfortunate laws of life is that man cannot exist on Totino's Party Pizzas alone.  I tried diet supplements, but a trip to the emergency room and a blood panel taught me that just because Mt. Dew is green doesn't mean it contains any vegetables.  
    Turns out if you want to pour food-like items into your gaping maw as often as I do you need to sprinkle in a little exercise here and there.  You can get as ripped as you like, or you can be like me and just try to keep your heart from getting too enlarged.  
    But where to start?  Most people would tell you to just go get a pair of sneakers and start running, but have you been in a shoe store lately?  It's a labyrinth of choices!  I walked into a sporting goods store and had to sit down with my head between my knees.  That was mostly due to my uncontrolled blood pressure, but also because I didn't know which way to go.

    Now there's help.  Now there's the Get Fit Guy podcast.
