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 agree about not going home first. It's the only way I can get there at all. Today I'm going to go straight home (since K. is out of town) and do a DVD instead. If I slack I'm forcing myself to go to the gym the rest of the week though.

Also, I find that paying for the gym is motivation...I'm way too cheap to pay for something I'm not using.

I'm not quite up to an hour a day, more like 40 minutes, Monday through Friday. If you want to do Gold's with me maybe we can work something out (although my schedule isn't super-flexible).

I'd love to go with you. I wonder if a couple times a week, the boss would let me leave a little early. You get there around 4:30 or so, right?

I try to get there a little earlier than that...technically I'm here until 4:15 though.
