Most Horrific Excuse To Skip Gym on...

Thursday, September 05, 2013

So there was a murder-suicide at my gym. A 15 year resident allegedly stabbed a 20+ year night security guard to death and then the resident set himself on fire in his room. Firefighters who responded in the middle of the night found the guard's body near the front door and the resident dead in his room. This is the basic version I got from the news bit I've seen. This is so terrible. I can't imagine what went so wrong between these men after so many years, such a tragedy. (PS: the excuse is due to these events the gym is closed until further notice, according to the comments that bit was unclear, sorry)

If you reach your goals by using a different plan than you planned does it still mean as much to you?
This is a question I'm wrestling with right now. I keep thinking of what I didn't do and then I don't get to enjoy the realization of the pounds and inches I have lost. I didn't hike the trails I said I would, I didn't reach 1000 miles again, heck I haven't reached 200 miles. But whatever I did, I'm 165 pounds now and I've lost inches. Two inches are gone from my waist, and I like that. Okay so my plan wavered, but I made progress.

Maybe I'll do a better job sticking to the plan in the Fall. Maybe I'll get better at appreciating my progress more. It doesn't always have to be about the journey, but I do need a plan! I have the next 2 days off and I plan to use it wisely. I need to get ready for really going back to work. I have to plan my meals, figure out my work outs, go food shopping. Finish cleaning up the aftermath of summer vacation. Almost everything is squared away now and ready for Fall. Time to get the day moving. Have a wonderful weekend.

    Another reason I have my own Olympic weight set. I really got tired of bad manners at the gym & seeing too many just going to socialize. The fun part though; it was a hoot to see the many ways a person could mess up a good workout. Have a fabulous workout, Earl emoticon
