Do's & Don't's For A Healthy Lifestyle (As Learned From Last Night's Decision-Making)

DO: Take advantage of good weather in Columbus, Ohio by walking, biking or some other outdoor activity. These mild July days don't come around that often.
DON'T: Sit at your desk with the AC cranked taking random quizzes on (Did you know that the adjective to describe "bear-like qualities" is "ursine?")

DO: Enjoy a social drink now and again with friends.
DON'T: Start slamming White Russians at 5:01pm at home, alone, in your underwear.

DO: Prepare a sensible meal of teriyaki grilled salmon, white rice, and steamed broccoli.
DON'T: Stumble down the street to the dirty Chinese place and order a bowl of hot & sour soup, crab rangoons, and a large portion of General Tso's chicken.

DO: Store your leftovers and eat them for lunch the next day.
DON'T: Ignore the fact that you're breathing heavily while you shove the last crab rangoon into your mouth.

DO: Make plans with friends to watch a baseball game, take in a movie, or play cards.
DON'T: Rent the first season of Lost to watch alone on your couch and struggle to follow the plot while you're nodding out.

DO: Make up for your behavioral excess by working out, eating healthy foods, and giving your liver a break from alcohol.
DON'T: "Irish up" your coffee first thing in the morning and drunk-text your girlfriend while she's away all weekend.

Sage-like wisdom. I don't know though, rangoon is really tempting.

Many thanks for an evening chuckle while browsing.
