So a few weeks ago I got my raise and had the back pay applied to my check. I decided to treat myself and went out to buy a new pc. I ended up making a healthier choice and bought an elliptical. A really nice one. I have a gym membership, but it’s a hassle to get there after work, then bus home, etc. All I use is the elliptical anyway, so this just made more sense, and now I’ll use it much more often and lose weight
It was delivered on Tuesday. I didn’t realize how much construction would be involved, as it came as just a box of parts. Took 2.5 hours of construction to put it together. The instructions said it was a 2 person job but I managed on my own, with a few awkward steps like holding something with my elbow while trying to hold a screw steady with one hand and the screwdriver in the other, etc. Plus I had to hook up the electronics. Putting the thing together was a work out in its own right! And then it left me with a ton of cardboard. Took 3 trips to take it all out to the recycle bin at the apartment block down the road
But in the end I did get it together and got to break it in with my first workout that night. A half hour run that burned over 300 calories. This was a great purchase. I want to lose another 15 pounds over the 30 I’ve lost since Edmonton. Mainly the last of my gut and a bit of face-fat, lol. Wish me luck!
