My hubby helped me set up the “gym” in our newly liberated front bedroom. I have a surprising number of fitness equipment for one so out of shape!
I took a turn on the treadmill yesterday after work. It’s a bit old and has these little fits where it slows down and then the tread shoots past under your feet, so I find it best to hold on to the handrails. Death by treadmill would be a terrible way to go.
The most important part of my new gym is the TV and DVD player donated by my brother. This way I can tread along to Supernatural episodes! I must have something to distract me otherwise the pain I developed in my leg about five minutes in would have ended my bid for fitdom!
I weighed myself, but have since decided to do this from the inside out. What I mean is, I will walk on the treadmill and do some muscle toning in order to feel better. Physically and mentally. I will be able to walk up stairs without having to take a nap afterwards! If I happen to lose weight in the process then so much the better! If I fixate on my weight then I’m doomed from the start.
Here we go!
