Recumbent Bike

I bit the bullet and bought a recumbent bike to help me lose weight. It was my favorite exercise equipment when I worked out at the gym. Hopefully it will be the same at my place. I'm so excited about it. I will still be using my elliptical machine but this is going to be good. Now I just have to budget my food so I'm not wasting any money. Going to shop at one store to not waste gas and buy the vegetables on sale. Buying frozen vegetables is actually cheaper than buying the fast food people are always talking about and it takes 4 minutes to make in the microwave. It's not rocket science to save money and eat healthy. When I was buying the recumbent bike, I was thinking man I hate spending money but there is more at stake than money out of my pocket. My health is more important than trying to save money all the time. This being said I will have no excuse for losing weight because now I can sit down in front of the television and lose weight at the same time!

I'm not going to weigh myself until the end of my first week of using the bike. My boyfriend is building it on Monday. So I will weigh myself on monday and then after the week to see the difference.

That has to be my favourite piece of equipment at the gym until one of the trainers called it the "Lazy Bike". I don't care what they say. I can feel it working. And the upright bike hurts my bum lol

I've heard it called that before too... but when I had inches off of my stomach from it I was not concerned with what they had to say.. Especially since it's my time not theirs. I wasn't spending enough quality time with my elliptical machine but I know I can easily use the recumbent bike since it's just like a chair. I didn't feel like I got a good workout from the upright bike. It just felt like I was wasting my time with it.
