We don't need no... oh, never mind.

Aww. This is kinda sweet. It almost makes me feel a little nostalgic. Except that when my friends were young and couldn't afford to go to cons, we'd pool our money to buy one badge, and then we'd scan it and... well, no point in dwelling on the past. Especially when I'm not sure what the statute of limitations is like for this kind of thing.

So, yeah. Winter depression. I'd been doing really very well so far this year, but the last few days have been rough. And, before you ask, no I haven't been doing all those good things I'm supposed to do. No light-box, not a lot of vitamins, no exercise since the daytime high have been hovering around freezing. I'm not sleeping very well either. I'm considering trying Gold's Gym again, since E goes there. I made the decision to cancel Curves after the election, because I just couldn't stand to have any of my money going to that jackass Heavin. I just... I really hate gyms, you know?

Yes, those are great options, and I have thought a lot about them. I'm just a little trepidatious about making a commitment to a martial art, and a lot of other indoor activities (such as skating) just don't appeal to me that much. I keep meaning to go back to belly dance, but that would probably only be one day a week. The other activities I like most are fitness walking (which I usually can only do when it's above 35 and below 90 degrees) and weight training, for which I need a bunch of weights.

I'm gonna bite the bullet and try a gym again. I think my self-esteem has improved enough in the last couple year that it won't be so unpleasant.

I didn't realize that they were so right wing. I had just seen the machines and it seemed like it was more of a social club then a place where you could actually get a good workout. One of the things that always bugs me is when trainers talk to women about "toning and sculpting" and Curves gave me the impression that they that type of place.

Curves emphasizes building muscle and doing cardio in manageable bursts to raise metabolism and improve overall fitness -- basically, workouts that anyone can do. I did get a little freaked out by their policy of measuring and weighing you in the middle of a public room every month (that nearly made me walk out the door on my first day), but the people were nice, and no one said anything icky, so I stayed for a while. My energy improved and my body got less soggy.
