Maybe you have a cyclist who can help you search for a good deal on a used road bike, where you might get good value. Even on Ebay, you can get some good stuff for $610.82 American.

Watch the fit, as you probably need about a 26 or 27" frame on a road bike, which is not common. I'd stick with a road or touring bike for commuting and fitness, unless you're dead sure that you want to do a lot of off-road riding. A mountain bike might feel more comfortable at first, but you'll be faster and happier on the road bike when you get fit. Good luck.
