I found that the elliptical helped with toning my arms and tightened the lower belly all at the same time. As long as I have something to watch and focus, I can spend a good amount of time on the elliptical.

I'm stopping in to say hi. I'm still trekking away over here and honestly trying to find what works best for me. I was doing really good with Weight Watchers last year, but found that the weekly calendar set up was causing some binging I didn't like. I've worked hard the past 5 years to get out of that mind set and putting myself on a weekly point reference was kinda causing havoc. The end of the week would come and I'd want to splurge,but rather than just enjoying myself and moving on I was using the whole day excuse and just eating whatever for the day...or 2 days or the entire weekend and "starting over on Monday". Finally I was like WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?!? So I'm going back to just focusing on whole foods at the moment, while I figure out how I'm going to log and journal what I eat each day.
On a positive, exercise is going really good though. I'm uping the weights on all the equipment and adding new things all the time. Recently I started rowing. A couple months ago there was no way I could of done that, but my neck, shoulders and upper back are finally getting stronger and the muscles aren't freaking out every time I do something with them.
Everyone else still trekking along figuring this out?

Michelle ~ I'm glad you're doing so well on the exercise!

I've been exercising quite regularly, including cardio, stretches, and weights. I did end up taking the last week and a half off since we had DD and family visiting. It's good to have a little break once in a while. I'm back at it again today.

Diet-wise, I'm trying to get back on track again. I haven't really been doing too well on that front all year; and while visitors were here, I didn't even try. I didn't put on too many pounds, though, so I hope I can get my will power back. So far, so good, today anyway.
