I suppose I can talk about my elliptical strider. I've been using that machine nearly every day in 10 minute bursts. Some days I have used it morning and evening, so that is 20 minutes of cardio split between two sessions. I feel great about this and am thrilled with my success. Keep in mind that I despaired of even being able to walk without great struggle and a limp not too long ago. Being able to use the elliptical several days in a row has been awesome.
Several months from now–maybe next fall–I would love to be small enough, and strong enough, to ride a horse again. I know mom would love the company and I would feel like a normal person again. :)

Follow-up paragraph (this is were I either grumble about the day, how hungry I am, or express relief that it's evening).
Here goes. :) I've eaten my limit for the day, i could definitely eat some more but i wont, and YAY it's evening, it's storming (I love the sound of the rain and wind) and American Idol AND Ghost Hunters are on tonight. The day wasn't bad at all. Loads of work, some challenges that were overcome and which left a nice sense of satisfaction, lots and lots of work coming in the future. Good day overall.
