As many of you know, I live in Michigan. Now Michigan is not known for beautiful weather in winter. Although this winter has been pretty mild, there are still plenty of days where it is gloomy, cold, and just plain nasty outside. On those days when the weather is miserable, I am so very grateful for a warm house with my elliptical and two weight machines in clear view of my TV. While going on the elliptical, I can get so engrossed in watching TV that the time just flies and I can hardly tell I am even exercising. This is fine and good, but sometimes I just have to get out.
