Neko (lofulah)

All this working out and stuff....

Seems like most of my friends have suddenly:
a) started working out.
b) been more vocal about it.
(Of the people I can think of... My roommate, a classmate that I met freshman year and have been good friends since... both are geeks. And most of the girls I know (Sis, Amy, Katie) all work out.)

So I've done a bit of research. Found this: http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=601323, and then... the best resource so far:

The Hacker's Diet

..and found it acceptable. 15 minutes on top of my daily biking to and from classes and weekly/biweekly trips off-campus would definitely be acceptable. So I think I'll be following that instead. I don't want to have to go to the gym. Rather, I'd prefer to avoid the gym - going would involve having to find exercise clothing, and preferably someone to exercise with. Which isn't a bad thing, but... meh. Or I could go alone, but I wouldn't know what to do. Weights? Who? What? And I'd have to see people. And let people see me. Mmmm, self-image issues present, yep yep.

So, questions to people:
Would canned fruits be an acceptable replacement for fresh fruits, 'cause I'm uh... lazy and would rather just eat a can (or fish slices of peaches out of a jar) than have to cut up fresh fruit?

And.. question to everyone: If you work out, what do you do? Or, what does your exercise regime involve?

[edit] need a cheap scale. Got suggestions?
(meeeeep, scales are expensive. My $40 gift card for best buy won't cover their scales. Buggers~ I know sharper image sells scales too (and I've got a gift card for them as well, but... no local stores.))
