There's a Gazelle in my living room!

Last night hubby came home with a little present. For both of us. A gazelle! No - not the animal (goodness knows we have enough of them living on the farm next door...the guy had emus at one time!) No...this is that gizmo that long haired guy does late night infomercials about.

I'm skeptical. Because it's in really good condition (he bought it used) and the owner was willing to part with it for only $30 bucks. I forgot to ask hubby if she was in shape.

So I tried it briefly when I got home from school today and it was kind of fun. And I started to break a sweat rather quickly! And I'm pretty sure it wasn't a hot flash.... So I'm going to make it a point to get on that baby every single darn day. Today I was going to walk for sure after school (it got up to 64 here this afternoon!) but by the time I got home the temperature was dropping quickly and it was windy as all get out. So I'm going on the gazelle tonight. No excuses.

Has anyone had experience with one? Are they worth the effort? Please tell me yes!!

Also - the weight loss contest with the women folk in my family is yielding results! If

you stop by the other blog to visit (do so incognito). They think we're alone. *smile* I've never given them access to this blog. I was afraid it would make me feel inhibited and not able to share my struggles as openly as I do. (God forbid they found out I was human) but you all know what I mean, right? Anyway - feel free to comment about it HERE. Not there. wink ;-)

OOOOOOO we used to have one of those. Had it for a couple of years. Really loved it!! Espeically my husband. Just got rid of it not to long ago as we only have room for 1 piece of equipment so we got a new treadmill lol. Only thing I didnt like about the Gazelle was it takes a LOT of room to use it. Something I dont have much of lol.

Hope you enjoy it!!

Have a SUPER day!

Oh man... it looks pretty awesome! I wouldn't want to look exactly like that guy, but I guess it could be worse.

I don't have any experience with it, so I can't offer any advice, but let us know how it goes! Especially because you got such a good deal! :)

Take care!

This line right here:

"I forgot to ask hubby if she was in shape"

absolutely priceless!

Hope your gazelle helps you move closer to your goals...
