Routine

Amidst all my fun, I've become quite the hermit. Since leaving my job to pursue mah dreams, human contact has been somewhat limited, and I've noticed my brain losing track of the day-to-day. A casualty is some fat appearing around the midsection, but the scale curiously hasn't budged. Uh-oh.

So the gym is getting obvious. It would be a nice break in my schedule, help me touch the real world, get some of that muscle I'm losing back and prevent fat. But now that my mind is made up, I'm having a difficult time actually motivating action. I found a nice gym with a pool, toured it, bought some goggles, and only have to get a pass and swim, but that last step is confounding me. Arg.

  1. Think of all the time you will have to THINK! while swimming. That alone is enough motivation. :D

  2. Need a partner? I just got a gym membership myself to start running again.

  3. Oh? Maybe so. But running? I like the thinking idea, too.

  4. Ooo that last step is always the hardest part. My motivation has always been having something to look forward to (currently it is The Wire). The rest of the motivation doesn't come until the magic 6 week point when you start seeing results - I've lost 10 pounds in 3 months!

  5. Doesn't have to be running. Actually, swimming would be good for me, I've been taking a break because my knee started hurting. Just saying that it helps to have someone to nudge you along when you're not feeling motivated.

  9. Sadly, this post describes my life for the past two years rather succinctly :(

    I approve of you getting a membership to the health club, but as a senior member of the hermit club, I think I might vote against your induction for your own good.
