Sweating with the Oldies

Kat, angel that she is, gave me a membership to Bally's for Hanukkah. I went there today (by myself; Kat was taking it easy with a 4 hour bath). This is the first time I've belonged to a proper gym. In the past, most of my workouts have been either in my Mom's basement, at the gymnasium at college, or at the fitness center at work. Needless to say, working out in front of dozens of strangers when I've got the body of the Pillsbury dough boy is a humbling experience.

For the unofficial record, I weighed in at 224 pounds, and have about a 40 inch waist. Most of the walls and pillars have mirrors, so I got to see myself from all angles. It's not a pretty sight. I haven't exercised in a month, and haven't done a serious exercise regimin in nearly 10 years. I spent about 70% of my time walking on the track, on the treadmill, or on the elliptical machine. 20% was on the exercise bikes. I tried to do some dumbbell work, but my biceps and trapesius muscles just aren't responding right now.
