Slowly becoming boring. But the other cardio machines look like failures.
I love to see the green, very nice! As far as the cardio machines, I tend to favor the elliptical also. The treadmill never did it for me but it is def the other machine that is appealing to most so I hear you. I happen to enjoy riding on the stationary bike; I know it looks dull but it works for me. What other machines do they have at your gym? You also don't necessarily have to be on a machine to get your cardio accomplished. Perhaps if you purchased a jump rope, a rather inexpensive proposition that could be challenging and fun and torturous once you get really fast and consistent. Do they have a punching bag or a speed bag b/c that is also on of my fav things to do to break a sweat and enjoy myself. How cold is it outdoors, perhaps you could take to jogging/cycling/stair sprints outdoors; even if it's cold, if you put on thermals it's not as bad as you think. I was outside 3 times a week in subfreezing weather over here all of last month. Just make sure to get indoors once you atop otherwise the sweat on your clothes makes you cold. They have this cardio machine at my gym called "The Wave" and it looks really cool and effective
but I get most of my cardio accomplished on the racquetball court, as well as outdoors running and cycling.
