So, after hem hawing around for a couple of weeks, or more like a month, given the date on this post, I finally bit the bullet and [re]joined the Y yesterday. This involved some serious bundling before the 3/4 mile trek from my apartment. The conditions were about as blizzard-like as things can get with only an inch of snow — the wind was doing its best given the paltry amount of precipitation available.
Properly dressed, the walk wasn’t bad at all, and I probably spent less time outside than some people spent scraping their cars.
I made immediate use of my new membership with about an hour of weights, upper and lower body. My goal is to hit the gym three days a week — Fridays, Sundays, and one weekday evening.
I returned home to lunch #2 (I ate a small snack, AKA lunch #1, before the gym), leftovers of a fabulous soup that I made on Friday night. After a bit of a cooking hiatus, I’m back in the swing in the kitchen — more details to come, including a recipe or two.
