Hurrah for exercise!

Yay! A late ordered Christmas gift arrived yesterday and Keith was kind enough to put it together for me right away! It had SO MANY PARTS!! He did a great job, and I only cringed a few times when he had to rub axle grease on some of the parts. *cringe*
Here it is in all its glory! My new elliptical. I am excited to have it, because this is the ONLY machine I have found that I actually enjoy. I am going to start with baby steps on my path to a slimmer me, I am scared I will get overwhelmed and then get burnt out! Baby steps like exercise but not yet overhauling my diet...
... maybe that is how a huge box of these made it into my cart at the store the other day. I have no idea!
Mmmm...flaky pastry!
and a little P.S. for my parental units so they don't think we broke the bank...we got it from trusty old Wal Mart, so not the bestest one out there, but good enough for us!

Hey, good luck! I need to exercise badly but like your area it is very cold here right now. Snow in the mountains around us. I wish it would snow here where I am. Plenty of cold, cold, rain and the wind just keeps blowing and blowing. This is some January. Anyway good luck on your machine and keep us posted.

Very fun for you! Hey I was going to see if we could VT you tomorrow but with the ice storms and everything, how is your schedule next week? And sorry we missed you today! We will do potluck lunch every Thur. and everyone is invited:)

Shannon said...

Haha ice storms. That's Texas for you!

You're lucky you have room for an exercise machine! I'd love to have one in my house because I'd probably actually use it rather than have to drag my butt to the work-out room. Which frankly, I just don't have time for!

I love elliptical machines! They are my favorite thing to work out on, whenever that actually happens. I hope you enjoy it!

I HATE elliptical machines :) I'm much more of a treadmill type person. And TV's. Much easier to do elliptical or treadmill while watching a tv show or movie.
