I finally did it I signed up for the gym in the park district. It is a small, but clean gym with many machines and plenty of space. I walked on the treadmill for about 11 minutes, not much i admit but it is a start. it opens at 6am so if i get up early i can go every morning before I do the things I have to do each day. Of course I plan on more than 10 minutes each day, but today I have a date so I needed to be quick.

I checked out the exercise bike and the elliptical today only a few minutes on each. exercise bike I wll do daily but will take longer on elliptical that thing scares me. It feels like I am not in control when i use it. So it will take some time for me to learn, but it will be fun even if I scare myself to death for a while.

Hope everyone is well and are enjoying preparing for their holidays. Stop by Walgreen to say Hi for your last minute stuff. That's where i will be Christmas day.
