Okay, I was all pumped up last summer because I'd been walking three miles a day and was five pounds away from my ideal weight. I'm 5'8" and would like to be 135. Right now, I'm 149, so basically I've got 15 lbs. to work off.
I did only a mile today before I started feeling really dehydrated. My heart arrythmia tends to get worse when I'm dehydrated, so I had to forfeit my treadmill on my search for the water fountain and couldn't do all three miles. Still, I was on for 20 minutes and worked up a nice sweat.
My question to you all, however, is this: I'm such a creature of habit, I can see me only using the treadmill and swimming laps unless someone tells me how easy/fun other gym machines are. I've heard of ellipticals, but I swear I'd pass out on one of those. Any favorite things to do at the gym? I'm going into a yoga class, but that's not going to really take off the weight. Suggestions?
