Show & Tell #44

Ode to my old exercise equipment...



This is a picture of the old elliptical machine at my work. My old work. As in, I took this picture the last time I was there. Because I missed this machine. And the fitness room. Because it was a small, private room in the building of my old work. This machine helped me lose 70 lbs. (and I so need it now to help me lose it again!)

I miss it. Many were the times that I could be found during my lunch hour, watching "Judging Amy" or "What Not To Wear" or "Barefoot Contessa" or the occassional "Buffy" or "Dr. Who" while working up a tolerable sweat on this machine.

(Well, my new work doesn't have a fitness room--but it does have 3 very steep flights of stairs!)

I would love it if my work had a workout room!

Wow...very cool machine. I would love to have access to an exercise room...but steep stairs are the next best thing.

I wish my work had one...no stairs either. Guess they figure lifting patients is enough. Oh well.

And btw, I loved Judging Amy! So sad it's not on anymore.

My work has a gym in the building, but I'm having a lot of trouble with the idea of spending any more time here (and away from Harry) than I absolutely have to. And since my job doesn't have set hours (more like you stay until you're done-ish), that's what going to the gym involves. Which is why I have gotten little to no exercise in months. Which is sad.

That's a nice piece of equipment! Sorry you aren't able to use it anymore. Stairs will do the trick though! or maybe your boss will give you a HUGE raise AND bonus and you can get one for home ;o)

Why do I suddenly feel like a slug sitting here?

Yay for your stairs :-)

I used to walk up 12 floors and down (24 flights) at my old office building. It was great exercise.

You know I have never worked at a place that offered me so much...what a nice tribute and I hope that the new stairs do the task!

Never Normal...

Things are never totally stable in my house...boring is definitely not our thing (well, it CAN be our thing...just not that often). ------...
