How-do, Sparkies? Hope everyone is doing great.
I am champing at the bit - my vacation/family reunion starts at noon on Friday, so I'm just trying to keep it together a few more days at work. WOOHOO! I feel like a little kid!
Anyway, I feel less and less like going to the gym the past several months. I've been going in for gym workouts once, maybe twice a week lately. When I was in statistics class and then finance right after that for school, I stopped going to the gym as often because it was quicker to crank-out an at-home bodyweight workout and then hit the books for more study time. Travel time to and from the gym ate into study time and I couldn't deal with that.
Since statistics and finance class ended, though, I find that I don't particularly want to go back to the gym. I still enjoy working out and I kind of miss my heavy weight workouts, but I find that increasingly my preference is to go home and do kettlebells or bodyweight cardio or something like that.
On the weekends, I used to go to the gym on Saturday or Sunday and get a good heavy weight lifting session. I no longer want to do that - at all. On the weekends, the last place I want to be is in the gym. I'd rather go out shopping, or see friends, or spend time with family, or even - HEAVEN HELP ME - watch TV on the couch.
I'm not really sure what to make of it, maybe it's just a phase. I've never had a fitness phase last this long though. I always seem to find my way back to the gym and heavy weight lifting before long. I wonder how long this phase will last?
