    It seems I'm an addict and apparently that's a good thing...

    So I finally caved in and joined a gym (having sworn I never would as they are breeding grounds for narcissistic meatheads, a view unchanged since joining) and it seems I'm an addict already. I was disappointed that today was my day off

    Anyway It's generally accepted that addiction is a bad thing yet addiction to exercise is encouraged. The side effect of this addiction is "increased energy levels" - what's the point in this unless I have some use for this extra energy?

    I'm already a hypocrite on the road to narcissism with an expected rise in food bills in my future as well as needing to buy baggier shirts - will I really have to put up with being unable to sleep due to excess energy too? This could be the worse decision I ever made!

    I don't think the extra energy from exercise is bad and going to keep you awake like energy from caffeine would. It should help you sleep better, provided you're not exercising immediately before bed. (Or so goes popular wisdom...I found exercise right before bed wore me out enough to go to sleep! *energizer bunny*)

    Don't worry, you will get tired of it and quit soon enough, just like fat people and their new year's resolutions.

    No! No positive steps in your life! Absolutely not, why did you do this horrible thing?

    Well I've never had a problem sleeping - hence the worry! Thanks for confirming my fears are unfounded, it's not a topic that can be easily researched It's between home and work so in the interest of efficiency I go on my way home so when I eat I'm really hungry, hence rising food bills. I believe there are other exercises people enjoy before sleep, as a bunny you should be good at them

    Haha! This sounds like I actually enjoy it now, but I don't. That's why I call it an addiction - it's a subconscious desire that consciously I resent

    Ah that's an easy one. I joined to prove that the idea that physical grounding by way of exercise cannot possibly have a positive effect on my mental state, and that all the studies showing otherwise were funded by gym owners. Nothing wrong with conspiracy theories I'm still not convinced, but it doesn't seem to have done me any harm... I will confirm it to be a positive step only when for a solid week when better things to do come up (socialising) I have no problem not going to the gym. Otherwise it's not positive and is getting in the way!
