I am Back up and running again!!

Whew, I am finally back online! It was a hard time not havingthe net to log my foods and the support of allm y readers. I was really deppressed because I put back on 9 pounds from making unhealthy choices due to moving, stress and unplaning. But I am now back to my 199 pound weight and that makes me happy! I have so missed reading everyones blogs, and it will take some time to catch up on them all, but I will. I love my new house, its so close to everything, which is a good thing but also a bad thing, with a wal mart and old navy within walking distance it could spell trouble for me lol. But hey its all good, at least I will hopefully be getting lots more excersise. The neighborhood is great, very quiet and it seems most people keep to themselves.

Im struggling with the eliptical, :( I can only do 2-3 minutes and it kills me to do even that. I was bumbed out so bad, thinking I might have to take it back. But I did get a little advice and since Im not used to using eqiupment it may be a bit normal for it to be hard untill I get used to it and can work my way up. It is a Golds Gym StrideTrainer 300 and as far as I can tell it is a great peice of equipment.

    Hang in there with the elliptical. The more you do it, the easier it will be to go more than 3 minutes. I started off with only doing 5 minutes straight and now I'm up to 15 minutes!

  2. I read someone's blog (forget who) that the first time they did the eliptical, they lasted like 18 seconds. Kept getting on it every day and increasing it. You'll get there.

    I'm glad you're moved, like the new place, and that you have internet again! You've been missed!

  3. Welcome back!!! I agree with the other commenters, give yourself some time getting used to the elliptical. Do 2 minutes today and 2 1/2 minutes tomorrow. Baby steps!!!

  4. Glad to see you back and well done on getting back down to 199.

    The elliptical will get easier - I started off at only 5mins and can now do 30! It was a gradual increase, but it does get easier (and, boy, it gives a great workout).

    Enjoy your new home!
