New machine...

I would much rather have purchased a new sewing machine, but this is a close second and it was cheaper than the Bernina I have my eye on, it is our new elliptical machine. We have it set up in our basement. If faces my studio area and I have a TV and DVD player set up to distract me while I sweat. We have the first 5 seasons of the Sopranos that I am working my way through.

About 3 years ago, I took off a little extra weight following weight watchers and exercising a bit. Ahh, the days before having a baby, endless amounts of time to do things like go to the gym. Anyway, I lost a few pounds and felt fantastic.

Here I am at my wedding May 28, 2005...... I wore my mother's veil, a Pricilla of Boston, isn't it lovely.

Fast forward to the end of May I am, nearly 40 pound heaver, baby was due in a little over a week and I wish I could say I had a 40 pound baby, but no he was only a little over 7 pounds.... that darn tummy just would not stay covered.

And here I am today, well actually in June, but I have not changed much in two months. My plan is to work out at least 5 times a week and loose at 10 pounds, 15 would be nice and 20 well a girl can dream can't she.

Hey Amy, I think you look great today! We just got an elliptical this summer -- anniversary present to each other haha! I like it a lot, well, as much as you can LIKE a piece of exercise equipment.

On another note, I like all the landscape pieces you're working on!
