After a week away and a few days off due to laziness, I returned to the gym today.
I spent thirty minutes on the treadmill and did some core work.
Then I did an arms and legs workout with NK Body Philosophy. At some point during the evening ahead, I will stretch to March Madness.
Hopefully this marks the beginning of a routine.
Now if I could just do something to restrain my eating …
The workout schedule has been spotty. But today brought stretching and core work with NK Body Philosophy late this afternoon.
Additional stretching followed this evening. The effort continues.

Gym at the Shire. Strength Work.
NK Body Philosophy
The Gym at the Shire has been a recurring venue during the Until We Meet Again Tour. I have been one of the house bands. Nicole Kung, of NK Body Philosophy, was a featured artist during these gigs. Desi Aldarando, Grace Ji-Sun Kim, and Elisabeth Lee made guest appearances.
The final show at this favored venue took place this morning. And after the show, the entry fob was turned in. Self care will continue in other locations, but not at the Gym at the Shire, until we meet again.
An era came to a close. The Until We Meet Again Tour moved out of the Shire today. Tricia packed the final car load to take to Cleveland Heights via Richmond. I gathered up the items I will need for the next ten days or so and moved in with my friends Nicole and Desi and Boxster.
The Until We Meet Again Tour on August 21 had brunch with Boxster, Nicole, and Desi. They gave me a Fitbit as a parting gift. Nicole is my trainer and this device measures a whole lot more than steps, which is what my previous device did.
It got some good use yesterday. I promise not to make a habit of posting such photos, but this seemed an pretty good start.
The Until We Meet Again Tour spent a good portion of the day cleaning the Shire. A good workout involving the treadmill and a workout designed by NK Body Philosophy took place.
But the highlight of the day involved brunch at Community Food and Juice with my dear friends Nicole Kung and Desi Aldorando. Among the many people I will miss when I leave New York, I suspect that Nikki and Desi are among the friends I will miss the most. And they are among the friends I will figure out how to meet again.
