Healthy and Cheap Too!

So its been about two months; I've started exercising regularly and I have to say that I am pleased with how it is going. I feel much better about myself and I am noticing that I am not quite as out of shape as I used to be. Of course, there is a long way to go still, but I think that I am on the right track.

Figuring out why I didnt like exercising was pretty much three reasons:
 - I didn't have a good time to go. Before work was too early, and going to work out after work was stressful when all I wanted to do was chill out and eat something after work.
 - The idea of paying for a gym membership also drove me nuts because I never used it. I really didn't need my gym membership.

So, recently, I rescued a weight bench from someone's basement and I've started exercising. Slowly but surely it is working. I can do it when I am in the mood or if I am bored. It cost me nothing. And best of all, it is convenient and impossible to ignore since I walk by it on my way to the garage and when doing laundry. One of the keys to dedicating time to something is to have it appear in your field of vision each day. Now lets just hope I can stick with it.
