There are hardly any good shows on television anymore. That is why I am so happy I joined the YMCA. I have been going 3-4 times per week for the past 7 weeks.
For me, sitting and watching crappy Reality T.V is no longer an option. The only things to watch on t.v these days are the Leafs and Simpsons.
Exercising has become almost addictive. I hate not going, because I will miss the great feeling I have after running around the track, playing volleyball and even blasting my quads. It is easier especially when you have friends to go with, it makes it that much more enjoyable.
I know those of you, who have 9-5 jobs, kids and other responsibilities have trouble finding time to exercise, but there are only benefits to exercising. There is an epidemic happening in Canada. Many children are considered obese, and it is our responsibility to provide a healthy lifestyle for our children.
First things first. You're absolutely right about the state of television in 2004. It's horrible. Other than sports and "The Simpsons", there's simply nothing I can stomach on network tv. Reality tv sucks, sitcoms suck and everything else produced by CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX and the like sucks. The only shows I look forward to, in addition to the aforementioned sports and Simpsons, are shows produced for HBO. Specifically, I'm referring to Six Feet Under, The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
I'm glad you're enjoying yourself at the YMCA. I wish I had the time and commitment to get myself back into excellent shape. I haven't done much of anything since the accident, but I'm at a point now where I should start back on the road to wellness. Once the weather improves I plan to chase James around the park as often as possible and I'll be playing slo-pitch a couple of times a week. Participaction, get in the action!
