I have an eliptical trainer- bought about a year ago as a floor model on sale (awesome price!)
I got it to get me moving with less impact and less pain as I am so much heavier than my bones can really tolerate. I plan to use it to get cardio in on the days I don’t run.
All well and good- but for some reason I have not been able to maintain a decent work out on it since I got it. Some how I have so much trouble doing an eliptical workout with out some instruction.
This app is exactly like the Couch to 5K app in that you have someone (Kindo of a bad ass sounding chick!) instruct you- “set grade at 10%, set resistance @ 5%- now maintain 50 RPM for 2 min” then it changes it up depending on what you set the skill level for and time length. All while taking my music from my ITunes on the IPhone.
Actually really loved the workout and can see doing it more than running really.

So I previously described my need to drop from the weight I delivered all 5 of my babies at- 165 pounds.
It seems that ability to deny the tightening scrubs or yoga pants I live in was pretty remarkable. My weight in today was nearly a punch in the pudgy stomach I have made more significant over the holidays.
At 172 pounds- I now need to lose 50 pounds. I am trying hard to not be absolutely miserable about having 7 more pounds added to this effort. The facts are what they are.
