I have this weird thing where I hate going to the gym when it’s warm out. There’s nothing I loathe more than having a good workout and then walking outside to some hot and sticky weather and making things worse. Yeah I can take a shower in the gym, but do you know the type of germs floating around in those places? The only buddy I hit the gym with took showers there from the moment he joined and got a real nasty case of foot fungus EVEN though he used his own towels, liquid soap, poof and thick flip flops. Let me tell you, some people who go to the gyms are the nastiest germ producing schmucks out there so I refuse to shower or use the saunas at any of them. A little germophobic of me, sure… But heck, at least I clean my own bathtub so I know that shit is spic and span. 🙂
Anyway, now that the weather is turning pleasantly colder now, I am dead set on hitting the gym hard core. Another good benefit to going to the gym in the colder weather is that it is significantly less crowded, so I have more of the place to myself. The last time I went to the gym was sometime in early September I think and way too much time has passed since I have been there. I weighed myself at the ex’s place a few days ago and was very pleased that I dropped another 9 pounds so I am down to about 231 which is way cool being that at my heaviest, I was 253. Either way, my goal is to be as close as healthily (is that even a word) possible to my goal weight of 185 pounds. Sure, it might seem a little on the heavy side, but I tend to generate some muscle quickly (nah, not Ahh-nold type) so I tend to be a lot heavier than I physically appear. Though I think dropping that much weight before my gym membership expires in April might not be too keen.
Eh well, either way tonight it begins!!!
