Working Out

This is our Nordictrack elliptical machine we bought recently. I've been wanting to get one of these since after I had Aaron....four years ago. Finally, I convinced my Dh we needed this and it's been a great way to burn off some calories, weight etc.....I am hoping that this will be a motivator to get into a exercise routine.

We been shopping around for a elliptical for awhile now but the price has gone down a bit on the machines. We went to Sears to try out the one we liked but found out searching online that Nordictrack had the SAME elliptical on their online site for much cheaper and it was FREE shipping.

My Dh and I have been using the elliptical every day. I am slowly working my way up to the resistance levels.

All we have to do now is work on our eating habits(so hard)! We love the fatty foods....and my favorite all time favorite thing in the world is CHEESE. So it's going to be hard to cut back and eat right. Today we grilled out/and grilled food is always better for you.

Those frequent trips to Starbucks...............has got to STOP! *sob*sob*sob* oh how I love those little vanilla bean scones, and white chocolate Mocha with whip. *Sigh*

On a much happier note, I found this survey, or quiz on another gals blog-LeslieinTN . So I took the quiz. It's super fun. Try it out. I never knew I would of guessed I would be such a nice breed right? I was thinking I would end up pit bull or something. I think I am more like a Scotty(you know, President Bush owns a scotty-i think his name is barney). If you thought Muffin was a cuss(our shih tzu dog) than you need to take a closer look at Barney. That dog is CUSS ville all the way. ha! he keeps them on their toes.
What dog breed are you? I'm a Golden Retriever! Find out at

I have seen people get other dogs... like: lab. retrievers, chihuahua, and a bulldog. Good luck on your ellipticle... We sold ours on Craig's list after brushing the two inches of dust off it last fall.:)¥

Happy Working Out!!!! I have been trying to get on my treadmill everyday for 60 mins. Cutting out the bad for me foods is what my main problem is...UGGG

Good luck girl! I have been on Herbal Magic and although I lost 7 pounds, I do have my bouts of crying when I feel deprived. I found that I am a carb-a-holic and I miss carbs the most!
