to gym or to shake.

Knew that I'd been bloating up over the years, when my trousers went from a 30 to a 32, to a 34 waist size. My waist is still a waist, but I need 34 to lug the damn thing over my hips. Its the one place where I can claim to look like Sreedevi!

Have been meaning to exercise, but.
Morning walks are out, cos I'm too lazy to get up. 6.30 is early enough for me, thank you.
Evening walks are out, cos I'd still be stuck to my desk/client's desk in the evenings.
Nightly walks are out, cos the mad dog wants to pause here and there and everywhere to sniff. So its a nice (for her more than for me) stroll rather than an energetic swinging walk.
If I were that focussed a person as to drop her back and then come down again for my exercisewalk, I would never have gotten into the shape I am now in.

But then, my husband offered me an alternate career option.
A belly dancer.
He said I'd give all of 'em a run for their money.

Hmmm....
I can either divorce him.
Or join a gym.

He's been at me to join one for ages now.
But knowing me, I'm afraid it'll be good money gone down the drain.
Pliss to advise, bloggy friends.

Oh the story of my life! After various attempts-at-fitness disasters I've finally given up on all my new fangled ideas and am going back to the gym. Give it a shot, you might like it.

Just Gym Gym Just Gym !!!!!! Exactly where does the question of a choice come in here ???

Lets do a deal, JLT- you and I spend half an hour at the gym at the time you choose... early morning or late evening. It helps to exercise with a partner and God Knows the partner needs a lot of exercise too :-) it helps if the gym is a hop, skip and jump away from our respective buildings.
