New city, new gym. It'll probably still have the seasonal influx of those who made a resolution about fitness/weight loss over the new year. More power to them.

On the way back I'll pick-up a sirloin steak for this evening. And there's a jacket I had altered that can be collect today. Speaking of jackets, is there an opinion on owning two of the same piece, differing only in colour? I already have this one -

- but learned that it's now available in grey.
“Perhaps,” I thought, “this is exactly why you loved me: joys are forgotten, but sadness, never . . .”

When I've done that I've more often than not regretted not taking the opportunity for a bit more diversity.

Yeah, that's it, that's one of the reasons I'm hesitating. Also, I'm basically a cheapskate who doesn't like spending money on stuff.

Gym tomorrow. Over the past two years I've gone from my three times a week workouts - a bro split - lasting about 90 minutes or so each (during my last relationship ending) to now taking just over 30 minutes each. The reason? - age. It's been taking longer and longer to recover. Oh my off days it's still gymnastics stuff (and return to the trapeze) along with an easy run.
The other change is in diet, which should eventually see an increase in bodyweight from about 160 lbs (72.5 kg) to 165ish lbs (about 75 kg) which means I won't appear as cut/ripped as before, but I don't mind that.
