I've been taking advantage of the location that I'm in just outside of Shreveport/Bossier City to get back into working out. It's not that I really wanted to stop but I'm at the mercy of where I'm at and whether there's a gym near me. Luckily there's several nearby and one of them is only 7 miles from the rig. Since it had been quite a while since I had worked out regularly I've been taking it easy with the workouts to get my body back into the groove of being pushed but I'm making gains each workout. Even better is that I can already notice a difference in the way I feel with just the 4 workouts I've done so far. I need to do a better job working out whenever I'm not near the gym but the big thing is starting a new habit, even if it's an old one you used to have. Maintaining good health is so crucial to achieving financial independence. I mean who wants to retire at 40 or 50 but be so out of shape that you can't enjoy all of the time that you've freed up.
In case you missed them, here's the posts from the last two weeks.
