Back to the gym

So...I'm taking the plunge back into the world of exercise. I actually had to wait until a month after my nose surgery before I could get clearance to go in. I was all, "But I'm going to be using the elliptical runner and doing weights...not boxing..." But they held firm.

This week is all about cardio to get my baseline down before I start back to full weights and carefully crafted exercise routines so my ass will look even better in a kilt. Yesterday was Day 3 at the gym and I switched it up a bit and did the bike and the stair climber so I could work different parts of my legs.

In comparison with David Barton which I tried in late January, the two NYSCs I have gone to near my office have not been very cruisy (a huge part of what David Barton Gym is, is cruising) and has been VERY attitude free (which DBG definitely IS NOT). As I've said before, going to the gym is sacred me time. While it not be as high tech as DBG, or have DJs come in to spin on Saturday nights, or have a locker room that's supposed to resemble a wooden outdoor sauna, or have Bumble and Bumble products in the showers, I got the same feeling post cardio at NYSC as I did at DBG.

And I'm paying $30 less a month.

Next week I am going to try to go back to my former routine of morning cardio and afternoon weights. If I can pull that together then in eight weeks time when our big gay rugby tournament rolls around I'm going to look pretty damn good...
