Oh Treadmill, my Treadmill!

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I'm soooo excited!! A wee while back, I read a message board posting from someone who has a treadmill and couldn't get motivated. I lamented in my reply that she was so lucky to have a treadmill, I couldn't afford one at this time. That got me thinking and I checked Kijiji (Canada's version of Craig's list).
I found a treadmill, a free spirit in good condition that was going for $150!! I picked it up last week and couldn't be happier!!!
I'm on it twice a day and I have my own routine worked out, I watch tv to pass the time while I'm on it and I decrease the speed a bit and work my arms during the commercials. Without exaggeration, my body has begun to change in one week! I actually ran as opposed to walking briskly this morning for the first time and while I just kept it up for 5 minutes, am on my way!!!
The weight is coming off, but I'm more thrilled with the way that my clothes are fitting and the fact that I am getting active every day :) For the first time in a long time, I'm really motivated!
