well, after cleaning up the house for my brother's visit, i was able to carry the exercise bike (a vision fitness recumbant bike) upstairs and get it set up in a back bedroom. i was going to start, but the darn thing weighs 115 pounds, so i was tired after that .

this week i'm going to my storage unit and getting out my weights and bench, and i hope to begin a regimen to get back my girlish figure...

That kind of reminds me of what a NASCAR driver's fitness regimen was: channel up, channel down. volume up, volume down. (I won't name names.)
Then he said he's going to get in shape: he bought $17'000 of exercise equipment, and promised to stay away from McDonalds for a while.

Meanwhile, I'm about to go running..

(Added next day) When I got ready, there was a nice, cold rain drizzling outside.

Sounds like my schedule for the week!

Run to the store to pick up things to cook
Run to the store for more wrapping paper
Run to the bank to get more money to pay for all the things I'm running to get
Run to the fish monger to get salmon
Run to the hardware store to get propane
Run to the home despot to get things for the next home improvement
and finally
Run to the airport to pick up the relatives that are coming into town and staying with us...

me too, John. But I would add:

kicking a$$ at work (and taking names)
raising repeated objections to daughter's repeated requests to open "just one" present now
and.....
tossing opinions hither and yon on this beloved board.

Does jumping on a trampoline count? I'm a bit under the weather with a possible strep infection so I'm taking some time off working out. I promise to go religiously to the gym (which I'm paying every month) once January 1st comes around.

Had an exercising brain dead moment. I was walking on the treadmill at a pretty good incline and was feeling like I needed to up the ante so tried running for a bit. Um...I sort of forgot I had the incline up and nearly killed myself. When I turned the speed back down to a walk I was huffing and puffing, and thinking what crappy shape I'm in that I can't run for very long. It wasn't until I was getting off the stupid machine that I realized I was making things harder for myself than I needed to. LOL. What a goofball.
