Getting Exercise

I guess I'm one of those people who wants it, tries, and just gives up over and over. It's pretty annoying, but I'm going to keep trying.

I've been going through the Mac Athletics & Recreation booklet that I got in the mail a long time ago. They have a section for Fitness, and it includes cardio and weight training type things. All three sound interesting to me. I'd really like to join the gym. I keep hearing that regular exercise is key to not killing yourself with stress in university, but I'd also like to feel better and look better. There's fitness appraisal, which is a meeting thing where they give you goals and plans and stuff. There's also personal training, and group training. Personal training might be good, but I hear that it's better just to have a trainer once every few weeks to make sure that you're doing everything properly and such. Group training might be fun, because you bring one or two friends to learn exersizes that the group can help each other with. But, it's probably not good to rely on someone to get your routine done.

Hmm. I think I'll definately join either way. There's other fun activites, too. There's ballroom dancing, and Steve's already agreed to go with me. :D

Hey, I was definitly thinking of getting a pass for Pulse. It's $54 or something for four months, and around $90 for 8 months. I was thinking it'd be a good idea to get the four months initially, see how much I use it, then ask for the remaining four months for Christmas. Just an idea I had. I'd definitly sign up for some stuff with you. I *heart* Mac.
