Most of you know I went back to the office full-time, working from home here and there if necessary. One of the questions I received was how in the heck will you fit your workouts in? Well, hubby and I have been in the market for a quality home elliptical machine and we finally decided to make this a part of the Chilly household! So here it is:
the Norditrack A.C.T. Elliptical from Sears ...
I used the elliptical for the very first time this morning and I swear I was sweating bullets by the 5-8 minute mark. After 30 minutes, I was sweating as much as I sweat doing the stepmill at the gym. What's more awesome is I had a ton of energy at work today to make my Monday a productive one. I tell you, it is SOO much easier to just "bed roll," hop into my shorts and sportsbra, hair pulled back/carmex and workout! After that intense 30 minute session, I take a quick shower and get ready for work in half an hour (all before my Alexander wakes up too!). Of course, I am starving by then so I happily scarf down my 5 eggwhites and oatmeal like a champion lol.
Hubby used it too today after work and had the same great experience. Of course this will not take place of our weight training sessions. I have access to our office gym and at lunch, I still lift a certain muscle group. What is convenient though is my cardio is said and done early that morning so I can just focus on lifting during my lunchbreak. We still go to our local gym as a family on Saturday mornings and I work out w/ hubby (our weekly gym date).
Would I recommend one? Most definitely. It is an investment, however, the benefits of good health will last you a lifetime.
Any questions, just let me know :)) ...
