Gotta get these booties in shape

This is what half of our bedroom looked like Saturday afternoon. . .we purchased a Schwinn 431 elliptical at a GREAT price(Woohoo! Amazon was having a CRAZY sale on these products last week! So, Happy Anniversary to us!) These little girls decided to help their Daddy put it together.
When we're helping we're happy!
My man finishing it off. A man building stuff is just SO sexy. Well, not a man, MY MAN!
Ella organizing:) She is quite the organizational kid. Love it.Ta-da!!! When I came home from the grocery store, they surprised me with the finished product. Thank you so much girls(and Joey!)!!

We are already loving this bad boy. It is an awesome elliptical. Very smooth, very quiet, lots of programs, cup holder, place to put an ipod/mp3, a little fan & 18 inch stride. We are happy with our purchase and hoping to tone up quick! I'm thrilled to have one in my home. I flaked on the YMCA after 3 months(me=loser). It just wasn't working out for me. Mainly because I won't leave my kids with strangers, I just won't. Never have, never will. And really early mornings aren't my thang and evening workouts aren't either. I tried both-the 6am workout before Joey had to leave for work and the 8pm. Yuck. I love to workout around 8 or 9am and now I can! I can exercise whenever I want without having to worry about someone watching the kids for me, without having to wake up at the butt crack of dawn and without having to workout before I go to bed(which makes it hard for me to sleep.) Suh-weet. Wish me luck on my new endeavor! I really hope Joey and I stick with this and look totally smokin hot in a few months:)

You're an inspiration. It would turn into a fancy clothes tree.

Okay... Now I know where to go after my knee surgery.

You have inspired me.

Congratulations on your new and exciting toy. Now don't go and get too sexy on me. Okay you can!

Have fun!

Awesome! I was going to get one of those bad boys when we got our tax refund checks at the beginning of the year, that didn't happen though. I couldn't find one I liked at a decent price- glad you were able to. You'll have to let me know how it's working for you. Good luck!!

Great job. I have one, but I think it is lost from all the dust on it! I am horrible!

We love ours. We use it 2x daily (Mark once and me once) and we will probably bury it with use.

Hope you love yours too!

I heard they are the best on exercise equipment. Low impact on the body like knees, shins etc.

I'm impressed with you for working out at 8 or 9 in the morning, I don't think I could stop life and make me work out if that was my option...hence the super early mornings I'm forced to endure albeit with a smile on my face!

you already are smokin hot! :) I am wishing I had one of those with the HOT heat going on outside. I have been trying to get back to running but it is SOOO HOT

I heart you Holly. Thanks for your understanding of this great country. Nothing to be ashamed of huh.

Good luck with your new machine. You still are as cute as ever. I don't see the need for speed but it will keep your heart pumping :)
