Whoever said that recent mobile app sensation Pokémon GO would motivate people to be more active obviously didn’t consider lazy bums like me. Case in point: I tried to catch pokémon from my bed the entire first night the game made itself available in Singapore, even though there were lures galore just a block outside my apartment going on past midnight. A colleague even mocked me a few days ago when he alerted me of a new pokémon I had yet to catch down the hall, but I didn’t want to go through all that trouble of getting up from my seat. “You’re defeating the purpose – it’s called Pokémon GO,” he exclaimed.
I still haven’t caught it. Oh well.
Anyway, I mentioned in a previous post how I generally stay active through ‘circumstantial exercise’. Taking public transport because I’m too anxious to learn how to drive means having to walk all over just to get from point A to point B. So far it’s been working well enough for me – on workdays, I clock at an average of 90 minutes of activity and at least 6000 steps daily according to my mobile app – but I just know that this will have to change when my metabolism shifts. Am not going to be happy when that time comes.
But yea, I’m taking my pokémon hunting journey on a leisurely pace as I move from one lure to another in transit. As it is, it seems that all I’m doing is training to be the very best pest-controller, what with all the Pidgeys, Rattatas, and Zubats I’ve been catching. 😂
My new favourite pair of shoes! I’m so glad that my foot size is large enough to fit the men’s sizes – would never have been able to fit into these beautiful dusty blue babies otherwise. I even wore my dusty pink jogger pants to match them!
