Finished up my week of antibiotics, and am feeling much better. Now I have no excuse not to get back to the gym! ...tomorrow.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I've been getting a lot of jogging done these days. Now that its warmer in the evenings, I go on long bouts around the neighborhood. I feel great afterward, I just haven't gotten in to the habit of doing it on a regular basis. Oh well.

RAMA, your gym looks kind of awesome. Mine is definitely lacking some equipment.

Unfortunately, I chose convenience (open 24-hours) for my gym over overall quality. It's all right, but I wish it was bigger. I have to improvise a lot of workouts.

Re: Fitness Checkin

After about 2 weeks of mediocre to crappy workouts and rainy weather on my days off, I finally had a day with lots of sunshine and no job! I went for a 10-mile bike ride along the Mississippi. My plan to bike according to the wind completely failed because halfway through my ride, the wind randomly started blowing in the opposite direction!

It was tiring.

Then I took a nap, played The Sims 3 for 5 hours longer than I had intended (whoops), and went to the gym to lift.

I typed up a spreadsheet with a new routine on it that I am going to start taking with me. I made so much progress when I did that about 2 years ago, but then I just kinda stopped. It helps to see what you lifted the week before so you can set a real, material goal instead of just guessing.

Also, my personal trainer exam is 6 days away!

Well, I got roped into managing our department's slow-pitch softball team and we had our first game today. It was a bit rough, but I'm sure we'll be better next time. I went 1-4 and ended a probably-too-late rally with a boneheaded base-running mistake. Ugh.

Well, we lost again today, but our lineup is doing a better job stringing together hits and I'm feeling more comfortable managing. Some of our better players will be back in about a week, so things should pick up them. I only batted once before taking myself out so that I could focus on managing, going 1-1 and pushing my average to .400.

Re: Fitness Checkin

Good job, Tim. I miss playing softball. I haven't played on a team since we lived in New Mexico, 12 years ago. I haven't found any compatible adult leagues around here.

Well, the first round of antibiotics didn't do it ... I had a follow-on infection that required two different medications to get rid of. I'm almost through with the second round of antibiotics and I'm finally feeling OK enough that I made it back to the gym today. I didn't do too badly for having all that time off, actually. I feel good about getting back into some serious shape, now!

Re: Fitness Checkin

Just had a physical - nothing wrong with me! W00t!

Everybody should have one. Heck, it should be a requirement by law. I don't care how healthy you think you are. I don't care if you've never shown symptoms of anything at all since the day you were born. If any of you haven't had a physical in awhile, GET ONE. Do it right now.

I just had one, and I passed. So I'm healthy. I thank God for that. And so should y'all (or whichever higher power you choose to believe in). If your insurance covers this, and it should, then get it. If there's anything even remotely out of the ordinary, then you can get it taken care of quick.

And once you do, be thankful for your health.

(My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer a few years ago, but this happened during a routine physical anyway. So they got it all out before it had the chance to harm him. If you all have physicals, you can have this kind of peace of mind as well.)

Re: Fitness Checkin

I need to find a doctor before I can get a physical. I finally got insurance a couple months ago, but before that I was uninsured for 2 years.

Re: Fitness Checkin

^ How do you get your insurance? Through work, or some other way? In any case they should have a list of providers for you.

Re: Fitness Checkin

I just went through Blue Cross Blue Shield and bought an insurance plan. I know I can find a doctor. It's just a matter of doing it.

However, Illinois laws have changed recently, so I will going back on my mom's insurance next month. Since so many college graduates can't afford insurance, Illinois decided that they can now remain on their parent's insurance until they are 26, whether or not they are still in school. As I just turned 24 a couple months ago, going back on my mom's makes more sense than paying for my own.

Good job, Tim.
Unfortunately my fielding needs some work, but my hitting is improved over last year. Went 1-2 today, so I'm up to .429, which is still pretty low for slow-pitch softball.
