I have always avoided the rowing machine, thinking I wouldn't like it. I recommend you give it a try. Check out directions on how to do it properly. You will get a great total body workout if used properly. Try it for just 5-10 minutes. I cut my elliptical workout by 10 minutes and did just that

Every day I plan for what needs to be done and then tick it off my list. That list can be in my head or on paper. Items on list are shower, clean and tidy house, eat 3 meals and 1 or two snacks, drink 8 cups of water daily in any form(herbal tea, water with lime or just water) walk the dogs, deal with interpersonal relationships, budget and pay bills, talk to my soul and pray.
give myself a break when necessary after all I cannot be all things to all people and I am not a machine either.
I start with the top row of my sparkfriends and send out a sparkgoodie to encourage them. It only takes a couple of rows to get my attitude back to positive. I try to get through all my friedns adn that does keep me on track!! Sometimes then I get encouraging notes back!!
