My Elliptical


I love my elliptical. I am writing the last check to pay it off tonight. It is an Octane 37e. I bought it at the Wisconsin State Fair as I had gone to 2nd Wind Fitness to check them out and since they had an exhibition site at the fair, I got a better deal there. I have not missed more than one day a week riding it and I have come to miss it if I don't exercise. I slept in this morning, but plan on hopping on it during the President's speech tonight. Hope I can stay awake during the State of the Union or I'll have to flip on a movie. My SIL, KB gifted me with the mounted TV as she was moving to Brooklyn and didn't have room for it. It has come in handy as I have been watching movies on the weekends and the news during the week. This is an elliptical I would definitely recommend if you have a few thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket. I'm sure even a cheaper one would be great, but when I bought it, I was still close to 230 and wanted something that would support my weight without moving around. This one has done the trick as it weighs close to 300 pounds. It ain't moving anywhere! All I can say is this next baby better be a boy, or I'll be moving this monster to a different room. Right now, it sits in an extra bedroom.

Wow, that looks like a great elliptical, I'm jealous!

I think you were smart to get a sturdy one. Something all rickety and screechy might be cheaper but I think it makes sense to get one you'll use for years.

Thank you for posting this! That is what I was scared of though... the good ones are not cheap.

Thanks for the pics. Now I at least know what an elliptical LOOKS like! I'm pretty gym challenged. Pretty pathetic too!

How exciting to be working at WW. And at your own meeting too. I think that would be really helpful in staying OP, knowing that you are an "example" to others.

Cut back on the junky snacks, dude. When I hit maitenance I really started to look at the 8 GHG's again and if I wanted a snack I'd try to pick a F/V or dairy.

Then again, who am I to offer advice? I just ate 2 banana choc chip muffins for breakfast!

Very nice -- and you're looking great too!

We joke to DS18 about when he's moving out because we want his room for an exercise room! He turns 19 in July...
