Since starting my downtown job, I have yet to join a gym like I promised myself I would during the first week. I intended to go yesterday afternoon, but phone calls happen and I didn't actually make it. However, 2 points to me for working out at home. I tried a new workout, and apparently I can now look like Nick Lachey, according to the website. I am also super sore this morning.
I checked out a gym after work today - major sales vultures everywhere. I get a pretty decent corporate membership, so I'll probably cave in and do it. It's good for me, right? I'm still weighing other options, but I'd better move fast before motivation wanes.
I made it to Screen on the Green last night with BH and a couple other friends. The movie seemingly went on forever.... I love the concept of SOTG, but in all reality it usually goes like this: Get there 20 minutes before start time, and scramble for a seat. Tolerate mosquitoes. Make it through the opening Looney Tunes, and 20 minutes of the movie. Fall alseep for 30 minutes. Wake up, confused and cold, find an escape route and get outta there.
I had lunch with an old friend from home today. One weird thing about working downtown - your spheres of reality change during the day. I don't really know how to explain what I mean by that, but when I worked out in the burbs, there was nothing around. Everything revolved around work and coworkers. However, downtown I can step outside at lunch, eat with people that aren't my coworkers and have more than 3 lunch options. Then I go back and step into the work role. It's kinda weird to shift during the day. I like it though. I'm much, much happier downtown.
Looks like the rest of the week is going to be packed with activities. I need that right now.
