I am in LOVE.

I love my gym. They are genius. They have tons of work out machines that face the windows out into the street and parking lot. Which is way better than one facility I visited, where 3 of the walls were covered in mirrors. Like I want to watch my body fat, or other people's body fat for that matter, in motion. I like the treadmills, cause I am learning to run for more than 8 minutes at a time. I also love the elliptical. According to the clever machine, I burned over 400 calories in 45 minutes. REALLY? All while chatting with a friend? I even read a book during my "warm up." My sis tells me if one can read while exercising, you might not be working hard enough. hm... but those numbers don't lie. Do they? I did enter my weight and age and tracked my heart rate. So this was the third day in a row that I burned said calories in said amount of time. Score.

But all that goodness is not even why I am in love with the gym. It's this:
The Kids Room. Luke loves this little room. There is always a nice woman in there to watch him and entertain him. Plus, several moms from church go to this gym, and so we both have buddies while there.

Oh, this is so great, Becca! Glad you found a place to workout. I workout everyday and LOVE it. Don't know what I'd do without that time!!

Too bad I already have a gym at my house or I would think about joining you. I started running a few weeks ago and I LOVE it. I'm also glad my weird muscles are letting me do it.

Keep up the good work.
