Loving the Elliptical!

                              {this week stats}                                                       {last weeks}

I was very excited to see the increase in total steps. And a  total of almost 44 miles in one week!! 
This is my personal best in steps and hope to continue to increase each week.

This week I increased my elliptical work out and decreased my treadmill walks.  It is unreal how much more calories you burn on the elliptical then walking.
For example....
30 minutes of walking (3 mph) burns 147 calories
30 minutes of the elliptical burns  401 calories
I feel my endurance building on the elliptical.  It works out so much more.

This week I added the stair glide machine.  (?? real name)  I watch an elderly lady do this machine for an hour everyday.  I am lucky to do it for 15 mins!! lol  

This month has been a personal best for exercise.  I hope I can continue the pace.  I know it is the key to a quicker weight loss.

Have a great week!!


  1. There are a couple of machines at my gym that I'd like to try, but I have no idea what they do! Is the stair glide the machine that looks like steps but yet you go nowhere?
    I agree on the elliptical for sure. It's become by BFF during the cold weather.
    You are doing great! I'm stopping by from Katie J's link. Following on Bloglovin, too!

  2. I love the stair glide... I call it the space walk machine... I imagine that is what it would feel like to walk on the moon?

    How do you like the fitbit? I was thinking about getting one but want to make sure it's worth the purchase before I dish out the dough.

  3. We have an elderly neighbor who puts me to shame with her summertime gardening/yard work. She can be out there for hours in the hot sun, and after just one (hour) I'm more than ready to come in. :)

    Look at your numbers, that's awesome to see. YOUR calories burnt motivates me, lol!!! Good work. :)

  4. That's wonderful, Nonny!!! Great job!

  5. I really hate cardio! I know I need to do it, but it's definitely not my favourite....would much rather just do yoga all the time!

    I've nominated you for a liebster. Check out my post today for details
