    Trying desperately to stop drinking. I was going good for about 6 months then boom the holidays. Gained some weight, stopped riding my bike. Its been a struggle for a while for me.

      If i knew it was going to be like this i would have made other friends and not started drinking when i was a teen. Fitting in was overrated and now i'm paying the price.

    I'm currently testing a few gyms in my area. Since I started working mostly remotely (and the local office doesn't have a gym), I've been severely lacking in gym access and haven't really lifted weights (my preferred gym exercise) beyond a few kettlebells at home for about a year. I went to a gym called FitnessSF in my neighborhood that has plenty of free weights and some nice perks like towels and showers if needed, but it's a bit pricey at $90/mo. Will be checking out 24 Hour Fitness as another option tomorrow, which would run about $37-$45/mo depending on whether I commit to 12 months. It's probably not as nice, nor does it have the extra perks, but is that work another $540 annually to me? The FitnessSF is about 5 minutes away by bike with the 24 Hour Fitness about 15 minutes away by bike, so I have some calculating to do...

    I finally hung some rings from a joist in my ceiling; it wasn't as difficult as I expected, and it feels more secure than I expected.

    I've been doing push-ups 3 times a week for a while now, and I think it will be easy to add some pull-ups to the routine.
