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 ;-)
