Fitness question

Several servers are down here today, so I can't do much work. And that makes it harder to resist eating things that are way off the diet. I think Mondays are the hardest for that, maybe.

Which reminds me... how many of you folks have a regular exercise plan? I know I need to set up a structure for that sort of thing, but with work and home ownership and a dozen other priorities, it feels almost impossible to do much more than a few stretches when I happen to think of it. To hear the experts tell it, anything less than 30 minutes of aerobic exercise, at least 3 or 4 times a week is tantamount to slow suicide. An hour every single day is much better, they say. Ack.

Who really does that? Do all of you actually do that, and I just don't know about it? I mean, I sometimes think I must be in the top 10% of the sedintary.

I was doing pretty well there at Curves for about 6 months (and losing weight really fast) but then I found out that Curves is owned by an extreme anti-choice homophobe, so I had no choice but to quit or seriously comprimise my values.

Now what? I really hate traditional gyms. But it looks like I'm headed for Gold's anyway, because I can't think of any other good solutions. Any advice regarding better gym environmets or exercise programs would be greatly appreciated.

I certainly don't do that. Or much of anything, in fact. Which is bound to become a problem for me at some point but I currently lack sufficient motivation to do anything about it. The ideal solution (move somewhere with a better climate so that I can do things I like doing) is a staggeringly difficult one and I am insufficiently motivated to do that either.

I know I should go to the gym with colinmac. But that involves a schedule alteration in the form of getting up early. And I am extremely unlikely to change my schedule in a direction I don't like for something I don't even really want to do. Indeed, I am dying a slow death.

Ah. I'm right there with you. "Get out of bed early to do a hard, painful thing." Um, no.

I think I'll eventually get back into the habit of rushing to the gym to avoid the very worst of the crowds right after work. But I won't like it.
