lazy again last night. just can't seem to get rested enough.
brought my gym stuff and I'm planning to go at lunch although I'm still feeling really tired.
must...get....sleep......

my gym membership is coming up for renewal in early September
not sure what to do.... I like my gym but there are a few issues
It is a pure circuit training facility
sometimes I just want to do cardio
sometimes I just want to do weights
many times I can't do several of the posted exercises because they hurt my wonky ankle

I love the level of fitness the workouts give me but on the other hand... my competitive athletic days are over and I'm questioning whether I really need this now... :?
got some thinking to do....

wow! my strength is taking a long time to come back
another dismal workout

10 minutes on bike
30 second intervals on
reverse flyes
incline bench
bicep curls
squats
pushups
shoulder press
rows
15 minutes on bike

cardio isn't too bad but the weights are just hell

nothing too exciting at the moment.... I actually started reading a book series I bought for my daughter
the Mortal Instruments series
It's sort of in the Twilight/Harry Potter vein

a very quick, entertaining read. I need that right now. I've been reading an awful lot of mathematics/statistics related books lately. The brain needs a rest :wink:

I'm a bit af a math wannabe..... I think my abilities are definitely better than average but I have top work on it... I so admire those mathematical geniuses ....

I'm going on vacation in a couple weeks to Boston,Cape Cod, Nantucket , New York. Planning on visiting MIT!!!!! :D

RANT TIME !!!


just in one of those FRUSTRATED modes right now....

went to the dentist this morning and I have an enamel defect on one of my front teeth. Getting that fixed on Thursday.

Off to a urologist tomorrow to consult about recurring urinary tract infections

Making an appointment today re: my continuing breathing problems... not getting any better. thought it might have been related to the flu.

Still have to followup re: my appointment with a surgeon re: the finger injury.

I'm just falling apart!!!!!


on to the other rantings....

I am getting sooooo sick and tired of seeing all those self absorbed, me me me people out there....
And couple that with a teenage son who is firmly intrenched in the "it's all about me" stage of development.... and I'm ready to SNAP!!!!!

I think that this is arising due to a couple reasons.... being out at the cottage (it's a fairly upscale cottage area) and knowing that the kids take it for granted when there are thousands of kids who can't even imagine being able to go to a place like that. Everytime I see a new monstrosity cottage being erected, it makes me a little upset. Why do they need that??? They are like city homes (VERY nice city homes)

I was also reading up on New York City for our upcoming vacation and I was appalled at the incredible disparity in classes.
All the insanely high priced shops, hotels, restaurants and entertainment.. What % of the NYC population could afford to do any of these "tourist attractions" in their own city??? $20 per person to go to the museum??? Doesn't seem right to me... that should be available to all

aaarrrghhhh!!!!!! (and to think I used to be an ultra conservative, pro-business, screw everybody else person when I was in University) talk about a 360 :wink:

I'm gonna stop now because I could just keep going on this for a loooonnnggg time

took it easy at the gym today
20 minutes on the airdyne and 10 minutes on bike

just not feeling right. this is gonna sound scary but having trouble catching my breath coupled with tightness in the chest doesn't sound too good.
going to the doc on Thursday but I'm pretty sure there is some sort of allergies at work making the breathing more difficult. this really sucks!

JW - Good Luck with all of the dr's and health issues. Keep us posted on what happens. I live in NYC for years so if you have any questions let me know. I also had some clients in boston so I know some stuff there too. Both are great cities.

Thanks Mary Stella

I'm really looking forward to NYC
I was in Boston a couple years ago and did the Cape Cod/Martha's Vinyard thing. Great times! :D

we're only in NYC for a couple days so it's going to be a whirlwind tour! We just want to hit the major points of interest
(of course the more we read the more points of interest we find) :lol:

lots of vegan options.

I love Candle Cafe and Candle 79.

There is also Blossom.

Depends on what part of the city your going to be in. There is a book published every year with all of the vegan restaurants in it organized by section of the city. It is only a few $'s. I get it every year. I can send you some links etc. later.
