Cold, Ran, Broke, Fixed, Not Quite Fixed

It was 27 degrees today and windy.

Got on elliptical to work out. Amy headed outside to walk. It had climbed to a balmy 36 by the time she was outside.

I get about 10 minutes into my workout and Amy calls -“It’s not that bad. You can do this.”

She was probably right…but I was already in the zone and didn’t really want to stop, gear up and catch up.

10 minutes later, the elliptical goes into this wobbly mass of chaos. I try to push through it but it’s just getting worse. This machine was a hand-me-down and my dad has fixed multiple times. If it was a horse, we’d already would have put it down.

I climb off, grab some tools and start taking it apart with hopes of fixing it. After 25 minutes, it’s fixed. I test it out, it’s still a little loose. Not perfect but by now I’ve run out of time.

Probably will brave the cold in the AM. I just don’t like the wind. It feels like a million needles going straight through me. BUT…I’ve dropped over 30 pounds this summer and fall and I’ve got to keep it off. MAINTAIN until the spring then another big push.

  1. The colder it is…the faster you walk. Cold is better any day than walking in Kanasas heat.
    Throw on your ski clothes and get out there.

let your voice be heard...
