I finally did it

I joined a gym! Nothing flashy but I got a membership at the neighborhood rec center- $16 a month and I could walk there if I want. The only other gym close by is $30 a month and I can't go spending that much on a membership that has registration fees too.
Yesterday was my first day in a gym and it felt good. I started with 30 mins on the elliptical then over to the bike for 20 mins, did some on the machines for arms and abs and finished up with 20 mins on the treadmill. I loved it and can't wait to go again. It's been hard to find a balance between mom/wife duties and time for me. My mother in law has been a big help and will watch the princess while I go to the gym.
In a few weeks I plan to put the princess in pre-school at the same rec center so I will be able to get in good workouts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I may even do a few classes myself like cardio kick boxing and zumba... but not sure yet, baby steps.
Well that's all for now, thanks for reading- have a great weekend.
