Elliptical Machine. A whole body work out…that kick’s my butt, or did. The other night I finally went thirty minutes on it. Some of you that read this may be laughing, but that machine is something that I have had to gradually work my way up in the amount of time that I can spend on it. I did FIVE whole minutes the first time and thought I was going to die. My legs were burning and I was out of breath. I slowly worked my way up to fifteen minutes, then twenty minutes…the other night I did THIRTY minutes and was very proud of myself. To walk thirty minutes is nothing, a simple two miles, I hit the track or the road and think nothing of it. To get tired just walking I have to do at least four miles, most of the time five. But to step on the elliptical machine it’s a totally different work out…try it sometime if you get the chance, you feel great afterwards.
This past weekend I went motorcycle riding…it was a BLAST. Though by Sunday my tail-end was a little sore. I haven’t ridden much lately, and Friday night I went on a three hour ride, up through Van Buren and around (a huge loop); Saturday night we went down into Arkansas and did about a two hour loop. It’s awesome!! I love the feel of being out in the open and feeling the wind (and sometimes rain) and being able to see the sky and everything. The temp is dropping so Saturday night I looked like I was going to Alaska, but I stayed warm the whole time. My friend put headsets in the helmets so we were able to talk without me leaning up and to the side to talk to him while
flying riding down the highway. It was a great weekend.
My nephew got new glasses…you can check them out here. He’s very cute in them, in my personal opinion.
