Note: I wrote this post when I was very sick last Wednesday and apparently never hit post. It is not very well-written, which I will blame on being very sick, but I'm not editing now because I'm tired. Deal with it.
I had no New Year's Resolutions having to do with my health this year, but my ride to work did, so I ended up getting a gym pass with her and have been going to the gym for an hour before work three or four days a week for the last month. I would never have done it if it weren't for the friend I'm going with, but it does feel pretty good (except the getting up early part). We do a lot of different stuff at the gym, which I guess is good so we're not getting bored and we're constantly challenging our bodies with different routines. Some days are straight cardio on the treadmill or stair machine or elliptical or cycle; some days are straight weight machines focusing on arms or legs or abs or whatever on any given day; some days are a mix of cardio and strength stuff. I've discovered I have really weak arms. Arm days are always the sorest for me later. The rest of me's in pretty decent shape, but there's always more strength and endurance and flexibility to work on.
Having a small apartment and a big dog means I spend a lot more time outdoors than I would usually during the winter. I take him outside for walks and fetch for at least an hour every day. It's great bonding time for me and Winston and even with the cold it's great to be outside so much. And of course, it's even more exercise for me.
I've spent so little time online lately. I never know what's on the frontpage of reddit anymore. I only check facebook maybe once a day. I only check the blogs I follow about once a week. I'm still a nerd more than a jock, though, I promise.
I have a hard time spelling exercise. There are tons of ways to spell it that make sense to me. Exersize, Excersise, Excersize, Exercize, etc.
