    I'm so lost.
    It may depend on your area. They tend to have less gym equipment, more programs, and are more expensive in my area. Of course, this was from when I checked them out several years ago. My info may be outdated.

    Sorry i forgot to check in on monday, but i'm done. I'm too depressed/busy to motivate myself to workout and not binge eat, but it was fun, maybe when i'm feeling better I'll get back in some sort of a work out routine, last week just messed me up.

    Good luck to everyone else.

    Aww.... I wish you the best.

    Just so you know, having weeks where we completely screw up, phenomenally, is something that many of us go through. I had a pretty bad week 2 weeks ago that consisted of 1 workout and a few binges, and I've had several horrible weeks since I resolved to start losing weight in June.

    Please go ahead and take a break if you need it. Just remember that a part of success isn't the ability to avoid horrible weeks, but rather to recover from them. Life happens, and it isn't always pleasant. I hope you are feeling better soon.

    I did some upper body training today. I'm also trying to get more flexible so I'm doing a lot of stretching.

    I went to aerobics today. We had kickboxing day. I did everything shy of breaking the windows. My teacher had to push me to the front of everything so I wouldn't damage any of the dainty ballerinas in our class. I'm telling you what, step class and floor work I'm not as graceful as these girls.. but I'll be eat my hat if I didn't make all of them look like the awkward out-of-step ones today.

    I'm had the week from crap, including binge eating and owie legs. But I went scoping out some gyms today, I'm totally lost on how to pick what I want. I dunno if I'm still allowed to use an injury, I'm just thinking I overdid it on the legs and need to let them rest. I have to be careful with my arm because of my loose joint. I swear I'm not just making this crap up!

    If it still hurts, then continue taking a bit of time off. Although I would recommend keeping the binge eating in check - as no exercise AND bad eating is a quick way to lose what you've gained.

    I thought you already joined the Y. Just so you know, some gyms actually have play areas for kids. It's a fair thing to look for.

    The article I posted awhile ago (sadly, both of us are likely too lazy to find it) had some good tips. From my personal (and limited!) experience:

    1. Does it have a decent variety of *functional* cardio equipment?
    2. Is there a time limit on the cardio equipment?
    3. How many treadmills/elliptical machines does it have? They tend to be the most popular, and sometimes the hardest ones to get.
    3. How busy is it during the times you are most often going to work out?
    4. Is there a "female only" area of the gym?
    5. What kind of classes do they offer, if any? How much do they charge?
    6. How much does membership cost per month? Is there an entrance fee?

    If you try a few gyms, it's likely 1 or 2 will take the forefront.

    I did some pretty tough climbing... got the burn going!

    Did a lot of walking, too, more than usual.
