my realizations

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Since the start of this round of blc I have lost 5 lbs already.

My foxy team mates have heard me whining about wanting to get an elliptical. Now mind you I have an exercise bike that I use alot, several workout videos - some challenging and some that are more doable , and a mini trampoline and a pedometer to count my steps and a light pair of weights. I got the chance to get an elliptical used and extremely cheap so I did not pass on it since I passed on one this spring and kicked myself for it. It was a challenge to get this thing home and inside but I did. And I hate it lol. Can only do 2-3 minutes at a time and my knees hurt. Why did I think this would be my ticket to getting fit ? Why can I not be content with what I have ?

I mean I have lost consistently these past few weeks by tracking and using what I have and it is working. I need to get up and move more still and not be so lazy after my exercise is done. But honestly I could watch tv and just walk in place alot and could still lose weight so why do I do this ? Am I the only person that does this ? I hope not !

    You will find what works for you but if you don't try, how will you find out.

    I don't use any machines at all first of all they are expensive and secondly no space. I have heard they take time to get used to so maybe it is just a question of time. Take care of the knees though if they become too painful you won't be able to exercise at all.

    I talk myself out of wanting some new workout thing pretty often, myself. It's easy to think something else will help more, rather than stick with what you already have on hand to work with. Hopefully you can try the elliptical again and it won't be such a bad investment after all.

    You are not alone. Give the elliptical a anything else it takes time to get the hang of it.

    You never know until you try what will work. The elliptical will get easier the more you use it. I have exercise equipment I will never use, books I will never read, etc. congratulations on the weight loss though. You are doing great with that!!
