When depressed, I occasionally do impulsive things.  Not usually interesting things, but occasionally I’ll go out and buy something frivolous when usually I’m pretty careful about buying gadgetry or frivolity, other than of course DVD’s.  But what started as a vague idea with no real plan for execution has this week come to fruition.  I’ve bought an elliptical trainer.

Yes, I’ve bought a Life Fitness X7 Elliptical trainer.  It was one of the few that was in a price range I was willing to afford, while being able to stand up to my advanced mass.  After deciding that I would get such a device at all, I made the trek up to my local Fitness Depot.  I had checked their website and found one that had the virtues I wanted while not being too expensive.  However, once I got to the place I was told that the model was not to be found in North America.  As their website only served North America, I found this rather perplexing, especially how other models were listed as sold out, while the one I inquired about was not.  I came back home and wondered where else I could get such a thing, not ever having entertained buying such a device before.  I found a Fitness Source which, as it turned out, was located a stones-throw away from the Fitness Depot, but still a bit of a jaunt to get back in that area from my apartment, having already walked there and back in my futile Fitness Depot attempt.  But I went out again into the cold and found a model that, normally I wouldn’t have been able to afford, but suspiciously was 50% off.  I’m wary of deals since I usually chalk them up to underhandedness.  And that may still be the case, but I decided to go with it and purchased it then and there.

I asked for it to be delivered the following week, and during the intervening weekend had parents up to help me throw out an old desk, sofa-chair and a matching 3-seater sofa which all took up a large amount of space in my apartment.  All I have left in the way of seating is a two-seater sofa, a stool and my computer chair, but as no one comes to my apartment anyway, I thought it was something I could live with.  The delivery men came on the appointed day and assembled the unit in something like 20 minutes.  It takes up rather a bit more space than I thought, but I might be able to reposition some things.


It takes up an inordinate amount of space, we have something in common

I haven’t used it much yet as I have been quite busy over the past couple of days, but hopefully I settle into a routine and eventually am able to rejoin the human race.


2010: The Year I Lost Contact

Filed under: General — 19day @ 00:01:53

Another christmas come and gone.  Went home, exchanged gifts, the usual thing.  Got my mother a Wii (and Wii Fit) since that’s the first thing she’s actually requested specifically as a gift for quite a long time.

Another year has come and gone.  Reading my previous New Year’s entries over the years, it’s quite a depressing stream.  And I’m sorry to say that not much has changed.. or rather, things have changed, but have only gotten worse.  In fact, the whole decade has been a bit of a write-off for me in a few ways, and I’ve lost quite a lot, more than I realized I had.  Not weight though, heh, far from it.  In fact, records I have from the start of the decade show that I gained almost a whole other person.  And so, my resolutions are the same as they have always been.  As I fear they will always be.

The noughties are over, hopefully I can find a way to move on.  Maybe the tens will be better, but I’m cognizant of the fact that I don’t have many more decades to play around with.
