After a few weeks of lackadaisical, sporadic home workouts while leaving behind the settled routine I had established at my apartment, I ventured back into the Bally Total Fitness near my new place this morning to see if my gym card was ready. As it turns out, it was not, but the staff let me check in with my driver’s license anyhow.
I was hoping to get in an upper body workout and some cardio, but I only had time for one or the other. Knowing that I’d probably need extra time to get through my resistance workout with new (to me) equipment, I opted for some time on the elliptical machine. I confess that I did miss the big Wall O’ Media at my old gym a little bit, but it isn’t worth an extra $16 a month to get it back.
As you may have guessed from the title of this post, I’m going back on SGX for the next few weeks. This whole month is going to be uber busy and expensive, and two of the primary benefits of SGX as long as one is not doing all of the extra supplements are simplicity and economy. I’ll have nearly two weeks of vacation coming up right after Christmas as well. That should give me a chance to try out some new workout routines before work starts up again. This is a good thing, as I am feeling distinctly fluffy this week.
