    Talking Idea for my elliptical exercise machine

    OK I am not yet up to a big time on it like a full half hour, so my idea is this. I parked the thing behind the big comfy chair, in direct line of view of TV.

    My favourite show is on, and I"m thinking do the elliptical aerobic thing in the 5 minute commercial breaks,

    and rest in between to watch my show.

    Those of you who know me well, will recognize this variation on my 5 minute commercial break housekeeping.

    Later I can do the whole Um HOG as it were!

    Margery I did the same thing with my bike. Its where I can watch tv when Oprah is on. When I started biking, I started at 5 minutes as well and slowly increased it every other day. It worked great for me.

    Have fun on your new machine.

    That's so great that you have one. I'd love one myself. I think that's a great idea starting out with commercials. That really adds up.

    I do 15 minutes here and there on my housework too. It makes it much easier for me.

    I have my treadmill set up behind the couch, facing the TV, makes it much more enjoyable to take those walks....
