Healthy Choice

Now that I'm more fit than I've been in a long time -- perhaps since my year in Germany -- I'm starting to see how people get fixated on fitness. I had a great time at benlinus and fermi_daza's this evening, but also indulged myself more freely than I have in recent months. And my body is protesting vigorously. Even though I'm exhausted, I'm struggling to suppress the urge to go on my second jog of the day. It seems wrong to fall asleep feeling polluted. But that perception worries me. The next thing you know, I'll be restricting my intake to a single light beer. I'm starting to wonder whether being healthy might be bad for my mental health.
