Sweating my lazy ass off since 2002
This is our new toy! Some people spend their bonuses on trips or nice clothes; we buy exercise equipment, as we don't plan on dying. Ever.
About 4 years ago, Jerry and I realised we were lounging ourselves into an early grave, so we got a recumbent bike, followed a couple of years later by a Bowflex weight-training system. We've been using them pretty much every day since. But in the last year, we haven't been seeing a lot more improvement.
Time to crank things up a bit!
So we got the elliptical on Wednesday, and I used it on Thursday and yesterday, and then today I went back to the bike, because holy shit, are my legs stiff! You use your muscles in a completely different manner on the elliptical than you do on the bike. Even drinking water is trickier.
And I'm definitely going to have to invest in a better sports bra.
