I have been lazy again when it comes to my blog, We have been doing quite a bit of finishing things at the lake and a few projects in town. We did bring home the "for sale" sign from the lake for the Missoula relator. I need to get back on my editing of my book, I have done little in the last 2-3 weeks with that.
I joined the Y today and worked out. I was going to join the Peak a real nice club on the way to Lolo, the facility is beautiful, after some thought however I decided to look at the Y and decided that would do just fine. $15 less to join, $19 a month less and a lot closer to home.
Here was my first workout: 8 minutes on the bike (Campus ride on the new bikes - 2 miles), 12 minutes on the machine that works your arms and legs as you sort of run and 1 1/2 minute cool down, 5 laps on the track, 15 minutes in the hot tub and 7 minutes in the sauna. I felt good until about 1 hour later and now I feel it in my upper back, not used to pulling on the handles. I intend to keep this up I feel I have to do this or die. I have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and am grossly overweight - so now is the time. I am reading a book - that is pretty good except all the parts about evolution etc, the other science is good and I know I have to do this. The book is called "Younger Next Year" by Chris Crowley and Henry S.Lodge, M.D. . I still plan to get back to walking in the mountains when I can, but the Y will help and will encourage moire daily activity. Also as the weather worsens it will make this easier.
