Toughest Chick On TV

As I've started on the journey to get back in shape in the new year (I know, it's almost cliche, right?), I've started my love/hate relationship again with the elliptical machine.

Look, as far as cardio machines go, I think it's one of the best in terms of being able to sustain an elevated heart rate and the impact on your joints is minimal at worst (jogging will just kill you in many ways, folks).

Anyway, if there's one thing I cannot do...I cannot just stare at the numbers on the machine. Thank God for Netflix. Specifically (right now), Marvel product on Netflix. Currently, I'm watching the limited series, "The Defenders." This is an "Avengers"-like team up between "Daredevil," "Luke Cage," "The Iron Fist," and "Jessica Jones" played by the BRILLIANT Krysten Ritter.

Her own series' first season was one of the best things on Netflix a year ago. And now, March 8 brings us season two. Which means, I'll be able to keep going in the gym with something new to occupy my attention. 😉
