Whoever said that recent mobile app sensation PokÃ©mon GO would motivate people to be more active obviously didn’t consider lazy bumsÂ like me. Case in point: I tried to catch pokÃ©mon 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 mockedÂ me a few days ago when he alerted me ofÂ a new pokÃ©mon I had yet to catch down the hall, but IÂ didn’t want to go through all that trouble of getting up from my seat. “You’re defeating the purpose – it’s called PokÃ©mon 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’. TakingÂ 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.Â Am not going to be happy when that time comes.
ButÂ yea, I’m taking my pokÃ©mon 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 fitÂ 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!
