Gotta get in shape!

Lately all I have been thinking about is getting an elliptical. I want to exercise but I am somewhat limited as to what exercise I can do. I wanted to be a runner but after 2 failed attempts of couch to 5k, I have found I must find a different means of exercise. It's not that I failed because I quit trying, no its because 2 times I have fracture my knee/leg in the same spot. You see I'm only 31 and have osteoporosis. I took meds for a year and thought my bones would be back to normal so I tried running again. Well not the best idea I ever had. Fracture that same knee/leg in the same spot. The Dr. told me I should never run again, unless being chased. He told me that swimming, walking and elliptical would be a good way for me to get exercise.

I have been looking at this one the past couple of months

So last night my wonderful husband took me to Enid to purchase it and then spent the whole evening putting it together for me. He sure does spoil me.

So tonight when I got home from work, I used it for the very 1st time. I was only able to go about 7 minutes, but I'm sure I'll be able to gradually work up my time. Afterwards, I felt like I needed to do a little more so I walked about 1/2 mile. I turned around because I live in the middle of no where and I saw a truck sitting at the corner and got scared. lol

Now I think I will make a smart choice on my dinner and and eat a weight watchers meal.

Baby steps!!!!
