Back to the gym
I am back to the gym this week; I really couldn't think of anymore excuses not to go. The "Anytime Fitness Club" (as they call it) is less than a mile from my house. I could walk there or bike there like I used to when I first joined but there is so much road construction now at the entry roads to my neighborhood that walking or biking is almost impossible. Matt is going with me as he is trying to get in shape for boot camp. The club is open 24 hours. I really like that because we go late at night when no one else is around. They have great treadmills, the kind with the attached television. I like that - I can watch TV and take my mind off what I am doing. The also have free weights & machines (all kinds of torture machines). I hope to get back to walking and exercising regularly. My cardiac treadmill test is in November and I want to do good on it so I am "in training" for that! If the weather EVER cools off I can get back to biking. I hate exercise but I feel so much better when I do it.
