    Okay, so this morning I received my new Schwinn 431 elliptical. Since I live alone I was prepared to beg and plead with the delivery guy to just drop it off inside of my house instead of by the curb.

    The guy did offer to help and then said he would put it in the main carpet area. This was a huge help. However, he was an older gentleman and the yellow cord broke on him and he almost fell in my house.Then as he left I noticed that he had a limp. Luckily he caught himself. I thanked him and offered a refreshment, for which he declined.

    So, let me tell you the box was huge. Well, while getting my knife out and I looked deep into myself and pulled out all of my years of Girl Scouts.

    So that being said, I turned on the tunes and got started. It took me 3 hours to do it all by myself. But it looks great and I feel like Super Woman

    I got on it for 5 minutes and it's super quiet. I think I chose wisely.

    Here it is and Arthur (he just looked so darn cute, and he only ate a few tiny pieces of styrofoam):

    Quiet is good. I hope it brings you lots of workout joy.

    I love the feeling after putting something together!

    It's okay Josh, I knew what you meant. :D

    Arthur keeps getting close enough to almost bonk his head, so I have to keep telling him to step away.
