I have been adjusting my lifestyle by quite a lot. I’m not trying to lose weight or anything, but I do want to be a bit more healthy. To reach this goal I have been going to the fitness center more. The snow just settled outside, and finding the empowerment to go outdoors in the cold and get in my van to drive to the fitness center gets hard. Before I leave for the fitness center, I typically have to brush off my van. I then blast the HVAC unit in my van on my way to the fitness center to warm up. By the time I get to the fitness center, my body’s homeostasis has finished adjusting to the HVAC system in the van and I am freezing once I get out of the vehicle. Since I’m typically cold by the time I walk into the fitness center, I leave on my sweatpants and head for the treadmill. I then run for a good twenty minutes. Trying to maintain a good body temperature within the fitness center is a constant struggle. The fitness center is really cold and the AC unit is constantly on, but as soon as I work up a good sweat on the treadmill I start to feel warm again. All of these contrasts in temperature in a short time period really confuses my body’s homeostasis. I am wondering if traveling to the fitness center is even worth it. I think that I am going to start looking for some cardio equipment for my own apartment, where I can control the HVAC system’s thermostat settings myself and I don’t have to make the horrible winter trek all the way to the fitness center.
