So I may be joining a gym downtown. Here's the thing: in an effort to make the original deadline on this project, the firm has upped our possible hours to 105 per week. For those of you wondering, that's 15 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Yeah, we won't be doing that. And when I say "we" I mean "I".
However, I would like to try to make 72 hours - 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. If the job does end on June 1 like they're shooting for, I need to save save save for my move back to Boston and to pay off debt and to live and such. The problem with working, say, 7 AM to 7 PM is that I'll be famished and tired when I get home and may want to punch Denise Austin's perky self, even as I feel dissatisfied with the workout she's giving me.
So this guy I work with went to check out a nearby gym this afternoon. He came back raving about the sign-up deal they have going on right now. I called the rep and set up an appointment to meet with him tomorrow.
If I join the gym my plan would be to be at work from 7 AM to 8 PM and to take an hour off at around 3 PM to go work out. Then the endorphins will keep me going until 8 PM when I will go home and collapse on my bed for a good night's sleep. Good plan, yes?
Another plus is that the gym corporation owns several clubs in Boston too so I could probably just transfer up there when I move (which is something I'll find out tomorrow). I'm excited about the possibility of getting in a regular afternoon workout and being able to mix it up and keep myself continually challenged. Plus it will get me out of this basement office for an hour a day.
