I'm trying out a new schedule in an effort to get myself to the gym ever, and it's this: nighttime gym. The last couple of nights we've gone at about 9:30, stayed to 10:30, and I think I like it. The things is that going during the day is way too massive a disruption to my writing schedule, and I really need to be a revising maniac right now. (I love the word "maniac" by the way. It's funny, last Thanksgiving my brother commented on it, being told as a kid that there are "maniacs" in the world and how mysterious it seemed; then in the book Atonement the word "maniac" makes an extremely strong impression on Briony, and is surely partly responsible for the terrible thing that she does.) Anyway, I think I like this new schedule. For one, the gym is practically empty then, and there's more chance of there being something interesting on the many TVs in the cardio area.
Might I ask though, what is up with Food Network always being on those TVs? I mean, really. Like I want to watch someone braise meat or build a wedding cake while I'm on the treadmill! Oh, and you know what was on recently? Painting with Bob Ross! How funny is that, for treadmill viewing?
And then the best part about working out late is that you know you don't have to do anything after you get home. Just take a shower and get in bed with your book. It's nice. It's advisable to eat a light, early dinner though.
I think this just might work out.
