Me and My Treadmill


Thursday, June 26, 2008

Well...where to begin. I was up to walking 60-70 minutes on a treadmill everyday (or almost), then I came down with pneumonia back in February. I can't believe how much strength that sucked out of me. I tried a couple of times to get back on that treadmill and it seemed I could not breathe. I am mostly frustrated that I let that illness allow me to give up. I gave up on spark, logging weight, got back up to 157 and figured just don't log it. I was down to 144. So finally when I hit 149 I went back in and updated my weight. Who was I hiding it from anyway, certainly not me or my clothes.

Oh well, I am still not back on my treadmill, but I started walking with a co-worker, first one lap around at lunch (1 mile), then one at break and another at lunch. Well the co-worker went on vacation this week and I continued two times a day anyway, already have one completed today.

Not only that I got a recumbent bike and started on that this week too... I ride a regular bike outside sometimes, but this allows me to get studying in and still excercise, so I kind of like it. I am not sure why I feel this treadmill is my enemy now, I am going to have to face the music and get back on it... I just know I will be struggling, but I am up to walking 35-40 minutes a day now without the treadmill, just not in one spell.

I wish I could understand why I am so angry about that treadmill, but I don't. Go figure, anyway, I feel like I am back to feeling good and the walking each day isn't bothering my breathing and I have actually lost 9.6 pounds... so I should be happy right?

I think I am content...just not happy.

    I had pneumonia when I was in college back in '68 and it left my lungs weak for several years. No joke. So I easily understand what you are going through. I also had bronchitis which lasted for months one winter. (I have a Moon in Gemini and Gemini rules the lungs, so I know they are my weak area. Never ever smoked!)
You are right about my son riding his motorcycle. I sat down and talked to him and I told him like I have my other 3 boys, that I want him to be "a man" and a MAN rides a motorcycle. I don't want my sons to be afraid of anything. I have also, had all of them have a conversation with themselves in which they talk to the "50 year old man" that they WILL BE and have promised HIM that they won't ruin HIS life by their stupidity. That may sound weird, but I think it is very valid, since the BOY is the Father of the man. If he makes stupid mistakes, he can cost the man his life.
Yes, he showed me some of the clips on YOUTUBE of guys riding. One is NAKED and does a flip on the handlebars. I don't think he will be stupid. emoticon
