I don't think most women have to worry about looking too bulky. Those women who look super bulky are on steroids.

There used to be this site about women's weight training, it was good. I can't find it now, but she explains that getting bulky is one of the myths of weight training for women.

I want to go back to the gym. I find the gym gives me the structure I need to exercise. Plus it felt really good to be burning calories and getting stronger.

I've probably lost a lot of muscle since then as I've been sleeping 12 hours a day and sitting on the couch the other 11.5 hours. LOL. I was washing the dishes and my arms got too tired. I had to rest a while before finishing up.

I heard that about muscle too, that it burns more calories at rest.

The elliptical was really hard for me at first. Seriously, by 5 minutes I was totally beat, my legs were wobbly, the whole deal. LOL I really had to push myself through 5 mins. But I worked myself up and then before I knew it I was doing an hour on the elliptical. I bet you could do it too. I liked the elliptical because it was easier on my feet and joints. Walking on the treadmill I got blisters, but not on the elliptical.

Oh and a good tip for blisters is vaseline. Put a lot of vaseline on your feet then put on socks and you won't get blisters. I walked 4 hours without getting a blister doing that.
