    Well, the good news is the only gym I can find here is open until 1am. This is good because I am a night owl and tend to go to gyms late at night. The bad news is... It sucks. Very little equipment, half broken, and it smells like B.O. and has poor ventilation.

    It seems the only other option here is a "Curves" though, and I heard they have a weird system that involves group workouts with music playing and some kind of switching machines when the music beeps like its a game of musical chairs.

    Liking your gym is very important. It can be hard enough to motivate yourself to go at all, but if you have to also put up with that mess? Doesn't sound like a recipe for success. (Unless they have a major perk, like being very close to home.)

    That Curves thing sounds weird. It sounds circuit-based, with a bit of music and social atmosphere to try and take some of the monotony out of it. Is that a type of workout you'd enjoy?

    Not at all. The reason I like to go at like 3am is because its empty.

    I've been walking to all my classes, but I'm not sure if this is enough.

    Well, I can't tell easily how it compares to what I was doing before.

    Can you find a map of your campus with a scale on it? I also understand that the downloadable version of Google Earth lets you pick two points and returns the distance. Both can be used get an estimate of how much you are walking.

    If it's in your bugdet, you can also get a pedometer.

    I don't know if it's in my budget, especially if I'll be getting a skateboard/scooter/rollerskates/whatever.

    Could Google Earth recognize walking paths?

    The problem is that if I do gain 15 lbs in the next year or so, people will assume it's the freshman fifteen instead of, well, I lost at least 15 lbs due to illness in the past year and I'm just gaining it back.

    I don't think Google recognizes specific walking paths, but you can still use it to get an estimate.

    How's the school's food selection? Have you had the chance to see if the school offers any dietary services to help you create a healthy meal plan?

    I don't know.

    The dorm I'm in has a great salad bar. The food is pretty good overall.
