Yesterday, a magical fairy delivered this to my house:
Okay, so it was actually a delivery man from Dick's Sporting Goods, but wouldn't it have been awesome if a magical fairy had delivered it, especially since you know a fair couldn't lift that thing?! (I do think a magical fairy could have assembled the treadmill faster than the delivery guy.) Anywho, we purchased this little baby using some of our homebuyer credit, and I am so excited! I have wanted a treadmill for a long time, but when we lived in our apartment there wasn't room for one. Now that we're in our house, there's still not really a ton of room for one, but we were able to make space for it in our bedroom (romantic, eh?).
I completed my first workout this morning, and it was great! The treadmill has built-in speakers that allow me to connect my iPod, and so the music plays through the speakers, eliminating the need for headphones! Since I am constantly having problems with keeping my headphones/earbuds in my ears, this is a stellar feature.
Plus, since the treadmill is merely inches from my bed, it is one of the first things I see every day, and the visual reminder will be good for me. I really have no excuse not to get my 4 workouts a week!
I look forward to many more workouts on our new machine. I suggested that we name it, but Stephen said, "We're having a hard enough time trying to think of a boy name for our child. Do we really want to name something else right now?" Good point, honey, good point. :)
