Back to My Roots
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Two years ago, I asked my SparkFriends for advice. I'd been working out at home for a long time and Awesome Husband asked if I wanted to join the gym. I didn't want to. It freaked me out. But I wanted to share my exercise experience with him. So we joined the gym.
It's been an excellent two years. I got my deadlift over 200lbs. I got my squat up to 180lbs. I took up running and have become........proficient. Not good. But functional.
But lately, the gym just does not hold any joy for me. Getting up and getting there is hard. And it's hard for Awesome Husband. Our gym is doing renovations and it's a wreck. And honestly, when the renovations are done, it does not seem at all likely that things will be any better. If anything they'll be more cramped. And more expensive.
So right now, we're in the process of looking into expanding our home gym. Mostly we just want an olympic weight set.
And, I have started P90X2. Tonight is plyocide.
We might get a cheap gym membership at Planet Fitness (ugh) to have access to the cardio equipment while we lift big at home. But right now, it's all about starting a new chapter of fitness. And that chapter brings me full circle to where I started.
