Crunching it.

I joined the local Crunch for a few reasons:

  1. Lift weights and get stronger.
  2. Slim down while doing so.
  3. Get around an environment of healthy people doing healthy things.
  4. One more way to get out of my house / have something to do.

Don’t get me wrong, my house is perfectly fine… but I have TOO MUCH spare time, along with a 30 pound SPARE TIRE around my waist.

Sexy, eh?

The last few years I’ve spent too much time staring at YouTube,, Facebook and Netflix.

Good for entertainment value, bad for my overall physical health.

If you read my previous post about monks y’all know I’m on a “dating fast” until July 5th…

When there’s $5,000 on the line I take that shizz seriously, who wouldn’t?

Crunch is open from 5AM to 11PM at night… and they have every type of weight and exercise machine one can conjure up. I can go there anytime, really.

But (or maybe BUTT) there is also that environment, the pulsing music, people in great shape, doing healthy things… if I just went there for 1 hour per WEEK I would be inspired to get healthier.

Some of the guys at crunch are built like Marvel superheros. I wanna look like THAT.

Most of the folks (at the Crunch I go to) are younger than me and in better shape, God Bless Them!

I just want to look BETTER in 6 months than I look NOW.

Better is good.

I can workout with limited equipment at home, but I’m totally alone.

My sound system is paltry, so is my weight equipment.

This is a new year, a new start, and I’m NOT happy with what I see in the mirror, and especially how I look in my comedy videos when I’m onstage.

I want to be HAPPY with what I see in the mirror, and if I have to spend 3 or 4 hours a week at Crunch I’ll do it.

Less YouTube rabbit holes, more Crunch.

Let’s see where I’m at by the end of 2022.
