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.

Oh, and one more thing
My rule for skipping the gym if I didn't feel well was this: I still had to change into my gym clothes, get in the car, drive to the gym, find parking, and get out of the car. If at that point I still didn't feel up to working out I could go home. I almost never went home.

Re: Oh, and one more thing
Ah, that is good. I have a similar thing with home practice: at least get changed and get on the yoga mat for 5 minutes of light stretching. Usually if I get that far, I will go ahead and do my routine.
