    I'm not gonna lie...

    It's been a rough and tumble sort of summer.  Between travel, and fixing the house, and a dozen other things, it's been kinda hard to just sit and gather my thoughts for a lucid blog post.  In all of that madness, we've lost track of our training schedule to where we dropped to training only 3 times a week instead of 6.  Not a total failure in that regard, but it is a slide in the wrong direction on the fitness scale.

    With the summer coming to an end, we can get back on a regular schedule.  We're dropping our current gym membership and going to another locally owned gym with 24-hour operation.  Part of our problem now is that our gym has flaky hours that don't coincide with our availability.  We're also going to be doing the P90X program at home, though Alice and I won't be able to train together due to time conflicts.  The P90X workouts are as long as 90 minutes, and doing them at 4:00 after work and then running to a karate class at 6:00 just won't work for us.

    I've realized the necessity of having a schedule worked out in advance.  When left to my own devices, I'll end up putting off things like working out until late in the day when it's a lot more tempting to just say, "forget it," and move on with other stuff.  A consistent yet flexible plan will limit the potential for missing workouts due to time constraints.  Saying, "I'm going to train from 4:00 -5:00," is a lot better than saying, "I'll train later this afternoon."

    We look forward to getting fully back into the swing of things.

    Be well!
