    But I Never Go...

    I joined a great gym. I thought that if it had all the right features, I'd love going there. So this gym is awesome. It's close to my house, has tons of ritzy features...but I still don't go. Darn it! How do I trick/bribe/cajole myself into exercising?

    SO I joined a gym a few weeks ago. I'd been thinking about it for what seems like forever but ,being the worlds' greatest procrastinator , thinking is about all i'd done about it. It seemed only natural that this supposed 'health kick' included the end of my twelve year...
