This time, I want to write down my weight....and have it be accurate and not be embarrassed by it. I have a magic 10 pounds that I consistently loose and gain all the time. It is getting old!
We have had a treadmill for a very long time... at least 6 years, but I don't think it has more than one week's worth of use on it. My tv is right next to the treadmill and I've found that if I turn it towards the treadmill and use my earbuds, I can block out all family noise and just veg...while walking on an incline. Last night I committed to one hour or two miles. I ended up doing 2.25 miles while my FABULOUS husband made dinner. Once it was done, I gave in and ended a few minutes early...but I did get my 2 miles!
Today, I wondered if I could get 3 miles in. I got on my treadmill, turned my headphones on, and walked to the tv. There were times when I decided to run, maintaining my incline. I like to just walk on the treadmill, but maintain the incline so I can turn my attention elsewhere (So I'm not concentrating on how much I HATE what I'm doing.) but burn a decent amount of calories. For now, this will have to work. I'm hoping that what everyone else says is true and I will eventually start liking exercise. For now, I'll fake it and watch endless hours of Law & Order while I walk mindlessly uphill.
Someday, I'll look like I did on my wedding day...But if I could just get to a reasonable weight by my 31st birthday, I'll be content.
