I decided I needed a day off for my birthday but taking today off (aFriday) made sense to me...I got to sleep in late and I have another 3 day weekend...
I walked yesterday on the treadmill for 15 minutes at 3 mph and it really did wake me up. I think I did really well considering that was the first day of my walking program.
Today my goal is 20 minutes (since I don't have to worry about being late for work like yesterday) and I will stay a 3MPH as I don't want to overdo the speed at least for now. I plan to add 5 minutes per day untl I am at 1 hour. Yesterday I only made it 15 minutes cause I had "technical issues" which included not having an extension cord for my t.v. hookup so I just watched the numbers going up as I walked the first day for ages on my treadmill.
I believe I am off to a great start.
It brought back memories of when my hubby bought the treadmll about 7 years ago when I was about 290 lbs and had severe pain from arthritis. I got on the treadmill and walked at 1 MPH for only 5 minutes before I had to quit. I am so thankful I have seen so much improvement in my stamina and am able to do so well today.
