Thats true too. We have a full gym in our basement and ample time to use it throughout the day. However a large chunk of people think the flight and a half of stairs to the cafeteria on the way to the pizza buffet is exercise.

I dont understand how the flight examiner can grant a 350+ pound dude a class 2 medical.

ah the whole medical thing is a sham anyway.
ZSE I'm guessing?
I see the older guys stumbling around with "the body" that seems to come with the job.. overweight with skinny legs, bad posture, like an upside down eggplant and I see myself going that direction, time to put on the brakes LOL

Yup, ZSE.

That describes it perfectly. ZDV? The medical is a joke. We have guys that have actually memorized the eye exam, and the one AME actually does the hearing test right in front of you so you can see when she's pushing the button.

When I brought in my bulletproof coffee for the first time the whole building went wild. I'm now known as the butter guy.

I think we are constantly telling ourselves negative things. A positive affirmation can help replace a negative thought with a more positive one. If you want to try it, start by repeating over and over a positive statement that includes within it some kind of belief or intention. Or, say your affirmation while staring at yourself in the mirror, and continue to look at yourself for a time. After a while you will start to believe it for real and that changes the way you behave.

My affirmation:

I love and accept myself unconditionally, right now.

Initially it was hard to stare at myself and say this, but it got easier, and I think it's been very helpful.
