Last year, I bought an elliptical machine at Dick's Sporting Goods.  I think I got it around the end of January 2012.  I told myself I was going to get my money's worth.  And I told myself I would use it every. single. day.  Well, I have kept my end of the deal up!  I have pretty much used the machine for at least 30 minutes every day for the last 14 months.  Except when I had the real flu {influenza} and felt like I was going to die.  There was also one night we were out really really late, and I didn't feel like getting on the elliptical at one in the morning!

Last month, my husband joined our local wellness center {gym}.  He signed up for a year and decided to add me to the membership.  How nice of him!  Really, he said it only cost 10 bucks a month to add me, so he thought it was totally worth it.  I have yet to go to the gym!  I just cannot find the time in my days off work to go.  There is a yoga class on Wednesday nights that I would love to try out, but we have been busy or my husband has been gone every Wednesday!

Last week, a friend announced she had a free entry to the Indianapolis 500 Festival Mini-Marathon.  She was not going to be able to use it and was hoping some one would want to do the race.  I was laying in bed Sunday night and decided I wanted to do it!  I have not been training at all, but I think I am in decent enough shape to survive.  I walked a marathon almost three years ago when I was much heavier and had not exercised or trained at all.  So I am thinking I am pretty good shape now.  I even found some girls who are going to be there and plan to walk with them!  So hopefully I will survive the cold rainy weather they are predicting for Saturday.
