Thought I'd revive this old standard. Last week I got a gym membership for myself as a belated Christmas present -- when I sat down behind the computer to do the re-launch in July and didn't really get up for six months, not even to garden, I could feel the slow destruction of my body, even when I was walking a lot in Bangkok, and I ended up gaining twenty eight pounds, having mysterious pains, besides feeling weak. So! This week I went and had a nice young Phys. Ed. student do my assessment, from which they will develop an exercise plan.
Now, the dreaded "lifestyle change," where I go to the gym every day and cut back on rich food!
Actually, the going-to-the-gym every day part will be easy; I can go in the morning when it isn't infested with students, and then work at the university where there is WiFi (and also fruit in the cafeteria, unlike the stores "downtown," which sell things I like, like milk, and cookies, and nuts, and soft cheeses, and sausage and so forth.
Anyhow, I did this once before -- before I sat down at the computer. So I know I can do it again! And another advantage: A general improvement in mood and a decrease in stress, both of which I sorely need.
