Thanks for that. I just train, to not train would be ... I don't know...I don't think I could really give up training altogether. It has become too much a part of my identity.
That's pretty cool. Integrating it into your identity is a great way to look at it.

Here's what I'm thinking my plan can go:
Enjoy my week's vacation for snowboarding (snowboarding is totally exercise It counts!!)
December: Do PT-specific exercises. Lots of push ups, sit ups, and running on my own time. Do my workout DVD 3 times a week.
January: Take the PT test again and hopefully bump up my score (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to take it again yet, but I hope I am.) Join a class or gym, and hit it 2 or 3 times a week. Take dancing lessons of some sort for fun activities that boost confidence, and every day somehow fit in my one my PT standards. Commando Krav Maga class shound begin sometime around then. Do that as well.
Still tweaking said new goals, but this looks about solid.
Yup, that seems pretty solid. What kind of dance will you look into? I've also been very intrigued in the idea of taking a martial art class as well as a dance class for exercise. Both have their own artistry, fluidity, and beauty about them. /INFP sappiness. Just be sure you don't accidentally confuse the two in the middle of a lesson!

You managed to stop at 2 Krispy Kremes? Wow. Are you some sort of deity???
I have a new girlfriend (and this was only our second week together), so my schedule was completely screwy this week (no pun intended), as we basically spent the entire time together at her place. From here on out, I'll be back on my regular schedule of yoga MWF and running/push-ups/pull-ups on T,Th. Forgive me for using the, uh, "alternative" work-outs this week, but fuck, I gotta get to five a week, so I'm gunna use em.
Tuesday: 8x sex
Wednesday: 2-3x sex and a 45-minute hike
Thursday: 2x sex
Friday: nothing, unless one sex session and/or copious amounts of drinking count as a liver workout
Saturday: push-ups and pull-ups (pretty weak though, only 1 set of each: 40 and 12, respectively)
The sex on Tuesday counts as a legitimate workout for sheer repetitions and length; Wednesday should legitimately count as well, due to the hike; and, if I remember correctly, the Thursday sex was pretty aggressive and cardiovascularly taxing, so it could count as well.
I'd give myself 4-5 workouts out of 5 needed for the week. I guess that's a cheat, but I really did try to make things work, considering the extenuating circumstances.
Hey Zarathustra, while I have no problem with counting sex as a workout, please don't report it as such. That's a little bit too much information. In general, people will simply say, "I worked out Tuesday and Thursday", and that's good for me!!
This isn't the sexuality forum, and I really don't want this thread to become about how many times a week everyone has sex. I can see that getting, ahem, out of hand rather quickly!
However, I do thank you for the update. You have the right idea, with perhaps just a bit more information that is really necessary.
