Well here we go! Transition time is coming like a freight train down the track. I was in a store yesterday and saw all the pretty yellow, red and orange decorations for fall. On top of that the leaves are already turning on a couple of the trees in our neighborhood. I have my youngest son’s back-to-school supplies purchased and in plastic bags for the meet and greet at the school on Friday. Oh my!
Summer flew by, as do all the seasons these days. My workout routine was necessarily un-routine-like since the boys were out of school and had little interest in spending lots of their time at the gym waiting for mom to hurry up and finish. Instead, we hiked, biked and went swimming. I did lots of home workouts and got the gym when I could. I didn’t miss my gym time too much since the lack of air conditioning made it intolerable most of the time.
Incidentally, because of the awful conditions in my gym, I called the manager to drop my membership. I was offered two months for free so I took it with the idea that I’d workout elsewhere for a couple of months until the cooler weather arrived. So far I’m still a member of The Inferno but I’ll have to make a final determination of whether to quit or stay over the next couple of months.
I’m looking forward to a return to my regular routine. It was nice to be off of the strict schedule for a while but it’s also nice to be on one. I’m thinking forward to all the food and extra calories around the holidays and how I’ll adjust my training to accommodate it. My physique tends to look nice and muscular around that time. I’ll lift intensely and eat big. The result is more muscle mass which I love to see. In the meantime, I’m appreciative of these hot, bright days that we still have on the menu…for a while.
