One of the boys I am teaching was REALLY not liking doing his writing assignments. As a result I talked to him about it and said that sometimes we have to do things that we don't like because it is really for own good. I went on to tell him how much I hate to workout but know it is something I need to do. So we made a deal that on the days I make him do writing, I have to workout. Well let me say, he is holding me to it. Not a day goes by, while he is doing his writing assignment, that he doesn't mention about how I get to workout later.
I don't really enjoy the gym because I get bored easily. I really prefer to ride my bike, or go for a walk, or something that gets me outside. Since I don't have a bike here, and sometimes it is not the best idea to venture out on my own, I have to resort to the gym. All of the hotels we have stayed in have really nice gyms, and it is only a matter of getting on the elevator to go, but I dread it.
I have tried to download some good music on my iPod to help me stay energized and pass the time faster. My favorite at the moment is White Shadows by Coldplay. I could just put it on repeat and listen through my entire cardio routine. Today I had the pleasure of a freshly downloaded 24 episode. Now I could get some serious working out if I had a new 24 episode to watch while I work out. Talk about rivoting! Don't worry, Angie, no spoilers here!
I wonder sometimes if Jack Bauer were a real person, what his psychological profile would look like. It seems there are no lengths to which he is not willing to go to save the day. A person like that must be really messed up in the head. Nonetheless, he is my hero and what a different world we would have if our government could unleash the likes of Jack Bauer on the axis of evil!
So thanks to Jack Bauer, I got a really good workout today!
