If it doesn't kill me, it'll make me stronger.

Monday, October 22, 2007

I'm worn out. I did all new machine work at the gym today, 30 minutes on the treadmill and actually tried the elliptical. I was only able to stay on for a minute and a half - that thing is no joke. But I plan to get my time up to at least 15 minutes by the end of the year.
So the plan was to do new things and SURPRISE my body. My body is totally tripped out!
I'm going to bed.

    Great job Lynn!! The elliptical is no joke! It was such a challenge to me at first that I went out and bought one just so I could conquer it! I love it! Keep it up! I think that is a great goal you have set for the end of the year! That means that you are committed to this gym thing!!

    Well Lynn, I've been wanting to try the elliptical. Is it like the step machine because I do not like that one at all. You will conquer it. I'm gonna try it...maybe today!

    I bought an eliptical about 6 months ago... It is so hard and daunting. Sadly it serves more often as a clothes rack. I've got to get back on it!

    Oh yeah I tried that Epitfal while I was gone on the business trip in august but it killed me.. it felt like my legs were spread so far apart that I was going to split right in two!! I like the treadmill with a ebook in my ears and until i get under 275lbs I am going to stick to it. But I am "eyeing" the others.. Good for you Lynn it sounds like you are taking full advantage of that membership.. Rest well my friend. Hugs to you,

    Have a good night!! I'm sure your sleep will be sweet. I'm going in a few minutes also. When I first got on my elliptical I could barely do a minute. You are right, that thing is no joke!!

    Oh My- I read your post and thought I wrote it...
    I did some machines today at the gym- 30 minutes on the treadmill and tried the eliptical- I actually made it to 3 minutes but I was dying! No Lie!
    Im with you by the end of this year I better be able to do at least 15 minutes.

    My body felt like yours today and wasnt happy with my plan. But I made it and Im still alive. Good for you...we can do this!

    Congratulations on jumping on the Evil E (elliptical). I've slowly built up the resistance and can do 45 minutes - boy does it whip my butt!

    I like the idea of trying new things. I've been eyeing the rowing machine - maybe I need to actually get on it. Thanks for the inspriation.
