a wee bit of the old inertia

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

wanna move, do some semblance of exercise, but crashed in the ole hotel room and unlikely to move. wondring where my resistance band's at, pretty sure i brung one with, but ain't seen it since I got here. of course, I'm realizing that I overpacked, and so it might still be under the t shirts and stuff I didn't bother taking out. Problem is, need too much stuff for carry on size bag (what with necessary work clotches, and wanting to have gym shoes available). Hate paying the 25 bucks for a bad i mean bag (tonight's affectation: not using the backspace key at all, totally seeing how horribly i type.), but it lets me take a couple of neeeded items with me.

It doesn't hep the inertia that the tv in this hotel (which i didn't ever turn on on Sudnay night or any time Monday) has VH1 classic, and it was showig Beyond the Lighted Stage (Rush documentary) when I got here after dinner (5 cheese grilled cheese with bacon) and now i see a evolution of metal spisode on glam metal, hair metal, that stuff that was on the radio when I was starting to listen to music. I like the stuff, no gult or shame whatsoever. Interesting to see the doc maker follow up with some of the glam members and ask how their lives were in the 90s, after their star faded.

Now that I think of it, I'm almost at that point of Dave Mustaine's autobiography where Megadeth in entering the 90s, a relatively fallow time after Countdown to Extinction amd the Youthanasia album. Curious what he had to say about that. Maybe I'll take that book downstairs and mindlessly pedal on the exercise bike. I think I just convinced myself to freaking move.

A couple of faves from that era (even if Saigon Kick gets unfairly lumped in with the hair metal thing, if you ask me),

Skid Row: "Youth Gone Wild"

Saigon Kick: "All I want"

    I think the vote is in grilled cheese and bacon rules.

    Grilled cheese with bacon... the level of awesomeness in a sandwich like that would, for me, be completely predicated on the amount of bacon in said sandwich. If there was enough bacon in there to force me to use the hand press technique to make the sandwich thin enough to fit into my mouth, that would be at the top of the awesome scale.

    Also, you should go pedal that bike for a while.Take the book with you to keep your mind off of the fact that you're riding a stationary bike to nowhere!

    Grilled cheese with bacon? WHY have I not thought of this before? Darn you! emoticon

    Keep in mind this is your first official week. I think as long as you manage to work out some this week, it's a great start. You're going to be learning what works and what doesn't (like with overpacking) and you'll be able to tweak your schedule in the next few weeks to come up with a routine that works well for you. For me, I have to get a workout in and get all my stuff done before my butt hits that couch, because then it has me in its clutches and refuses to let me go until past my bedtime.

    It's hard for me to get into work out mode when traveling. What doesn't help is the hotel I have to stay at when I go for training has a workout room that borders the pool which means horrible humidity!! I usually end up dragging myself there anyway...even if for just 20 minutes!

    That grilled cheese sounds absolutely delicious!! emoticon

    PS: LOVE Skid Row!!! I am totally an 80s hair band junkie!!
