You know what I mean, right? It. The big “IT” The, I know I should be doing it, it but I hate it, it. The, right now I avoid it like the plague, it. You know, IT!
Where is your mind going? Somewhere it shouldn’t be? Ohhh shame on you ;~)
I’m talking about EXERCISE. Man I just can’t bring myself to do it! Yeah I go for walks and I’ve had some workouts along the way but I really feel like I’m slacking in the big “E” department. Now I’m not talking working outs to lose weight loss here I’m just talking overall fitness. I actually reached (surpassed) my goals without working out vigorously. I stayed active, went for walks, yada yada. But as I get older I can’t help but think I should be at least getting some weight training in and a little aerobic activity wouldn’t hurt, would it? I think I would feel a bit better about myself as well.
So I went for the big tour today. A new local YMCA open up just a few miles away. They have free childcare, aerobic classes and a HUGE workout area with tons of equipment. The coolest part, and the thing that will probably keep this geek motivated, is the fact they have FitLinxx. As I understand it, FitLinxx will keep track of my workouts for me, reps, weight, time, etc. All I have to do is punch in my code and use the machine. I will even be able to pull progress reports online! You know this is right up my alley. I mean for god’s sake I’ve been keeping a weight chart for over 2 years now. I’m a bit into tracking progress, aren’t I? :~)
So like I said, I’m *thinking* about it. I’m worried that my work schedule will prevent me from going or at the very least give me just the excuse I need not to go. We’ll see, I’ll keep you posted.
Any gym rats out there? Advice, words of wisdom, words of WARNING? Anything?
