When I first decided it was time to lose 100 pounds, I started with swimming. The only exercise I did for probably the first 4 months was swimming. Then I started using the elliptical at the small gym I went to. I proceeded to spend hours upon hours on that elliptical machine. I wasn’t a runner (yet) and I didn’t lift weights much. I was strictly working my butt off on that elliptical.
Then I became a RUNNER. I completely abandoned the elliptical machine and all cardio was running or swimming (because I’d never give that up). Yes, I became obsessed with running. And training. And running races.
Last night at the gym all the treadmills were full. Instead of grumbling about not being able to run, I hopped onto a free elliptical machine.
I had a great time and lost myself in the motion. It was also a good alternative to running because my hips were SORE. The Bosu Ball did me in and I didn’t think running would be a good thing yesterday.

Michael realized that the Worcestershire Sauce we use (Lea and Perrins) contains High Fructose Corn Syrup! Oh no! I had no idea. I had no idea I even needed to CHECK that sort of item for HFCS. Does anyone know another brand that doesn’t contain HFCS?
QUESTION: What’s your favorite machine at the gym? How often do you mix it up?
