The Long Road (Faceless project)

Faceless, originally uploaded by ABMann.

I switched gyms yesterday. My contract was up at my previous gym which was further away from me than I prefer. The gym closer to me has the same amenities, is open the same hours, and intends on adding a few things I wanted at the previous gym that the previous gym didn’t want to add. Also, the rate was cheaper, including the sign up fee.

So. Same stuff, better price, closer location? Ok.
The only down side is that it isn’t locally-based. it’s a franchise, which is better than, say, a larger corporate conglomerate, because it can act independently to meet the needs of its population rather than be limited by policies enacted by a central office in God Knows Where, USA.

That does mean I’m more likely to have good gym facilities when on site, though, which is an odd and semi-useful bonus since I can go to any location.

Which is to say, I’m getting back on the horse today. Sickness put me down and out these last few days and the Superbowl offered great excuse to eat like a jerk.

Which I did.

And now I’m done.

Now it is back on the long road to a healthier me. Being sick and eating poorly compounds all of this that I feel rather gross right now.

The question becomes:
Do I start again with the kettlebells and various strength-training exercises.
Or get back to running.

Maybe I need to limit KB swinging so I can do both.
But are those two processes at odds hat I’ll continue to be stagnant?

Does it really matter, fatty?

Based on your explanation, it seems you'll be working out at the same place as the more pro-healthy roommates. They love it.

I sympathize. The December holidays put me out of my running cycle and then just before Christmas I twisted my ankle at the gym. About a month later my foot was feeling up to getting back to work and I came down with a cold or flu or something and spent half a week on the couch. That same week I hurt my back. So now I feel out of shape and achy but I'm jonesing to get back to work. I started doing aerobics and yoga in the mornings in an effort to sweat but limit the impact on my healing broken bits.

BTW, I still hate yoga and hippies.

I keep thinking of trying yoga to see what it does to my temperament but I hate spirituality pushers. And yoga classes seem to be just that.
