Take that you stupid machine!

This machine is my nemesis!
When I started at the gym I climbed on old Bessie here and walked (in the odd high stepping way it makes you) for exactly 4 minutes and 27 seconds. You can imagine how proud of myself I was with this accomplishment. (eyeroll goes here)
Well today I decided that I had avoided the elliptical trainer long enough, I have seen women that have been going to the gym about the same amount of time I have that have been using the elliptical while I have been using the bike and they have better butts now and I don't. (well that isn't entirely true my butt is better just not as better as theirs!) Now don't be thinking I go to the gym to sit and look at other women's butts but when you are on a stationary bike that is closer to the ground and they are up in the air next to you on the elliptical you are eyeball to butt cheek checking it out can't be avoided! Anyway today I climbed on and used the elliptical for 30 whole minutes!!!!!
I even finished up my 45 minutes of cardio after I got off on the bike.
I know this is a flagrant attempt at fishing for complements but it's still nice to hear them.

WAY too go, Carin! I bought a stepping machine at a garage sale once and it was really hard too! Didn't like it at all.

elliptical machines are tough! they really take a lot out of you. 30 minutes is awesome. stay away from the "programed settings" where you can simmulate a walk along a hilly road. doesnt' that sound like fun? (picture sarcasm, please.)
