11:40 am: Time to get in shape
Well, I have finally joined a gym. I have been threatening to do so for the last couple of months and have finally made it official. So far, I am off to a pretty good start. I went to the gym on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. The plan is to go every night, with the expectation that some nights work will prevent me from going. Always seems to be some kind of crap going on at work to keep me from my real life. I am really happy about the time change as well. Therefore, even if it's late when I leave work, it won't seem so late not being dark outside. Then, I will be more likely to keep up the exercise.  joe_christ  has been a real inspiration to me in getting this going and I suspect he will keep me motivated as he is so diligent in going himself. I joined the gym he attends, although it is extremely expensive, in hopes to have a motivated workout partner. One thing I have noticed is that there doesn't seem to be any riff raff in this club.  The members seem to have money and probably not much tolerance for any BS going on.  They also supply just about every toiletry item you could think of that you may need.  I am just tickled........hopefully over the next few months there will be less of me.

don't neglect the weights. even though lifting doesn't burn calories, the more muscle mass you have, the more you can eat without gaining weight. personally i try to lift weights twice a week and run 30-45 min on the treadmill three times a week.

Well, I plan on getting to the free weights soon....right now I am focused on the elliptical machine for my cardio. Then I use the weight machines for my stomach, arms and legs. I'm gonna have to work back into a routine. I need to work with my trainer for a session or two and get a real plan of action. As far as me ever running on a treadmill............hahaha! That's not likely....I am not that graceful. I would seriously hurt myself....I know that without a doubt. I can barely walk sometimes.

Now that you mention it, at this athletic club, WE ARE the riff raff!
