My awesome husband finished putting together my Sole E35 Elliptical Trainer last night and today I got to use it. I have earned enough money that we paid cash for it. It is AWESOME. I got a much better workout and it doesn't hurt the leg that has a bunch of hardware. I am going to be sore from the resistance levels in the HILLS program but the good kind of sore. I have to walk fast for 90+ minutes to get that kind of workout on my treadmill as I can't take the impact from the running since breaking my hip. I am so happy with it to top that off it is super quiet. I can reduce my workout time while I am working full time and still get a great workout by increasing the incline and resistance.
I am super excited about it because it will help me keep on track and we put it upstairs so I can work out while dh is playing video games. Today I watched an episode of Roswell on my computer but we are going to look at second television to put up there. Nothing fancy just something bigger than my laptop monitor that will have better sound quality. What was really amazing is that I can not usually get my laptop loud enough to hear over my treadmill but it was no problem with the elliptical.
Today was also sewing day and I made progress on another skirt and I think I will switch to tops for now I have a few patterns I want to try. I love the way they look and hope to make them to fit. I don't want to make too many right now because they look like they will be harder to take in than the skirts. I am still loosing weight. I am down 13 pounds now so it is not a big change but the good thing is I am not gaining weight. I have learned not to even bother getting on my period. It makes me freak out and in a week I have miraculously lost two pounds that I thought I gained and sometimes a little more. So I am also going to try weight at the same time a few times a week instead of everyday. Then if I can relax a little more I will try one set day each week to weight but I will have a hard time getting there. I have been less obsessive now that I have a lot less time on my hands.
