Sad Face .... My treadmill died ....

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Last night Lex and I were looking around the exercise room and discussing the equipment. I walked on the treadmill for 2 miles. Lex got on it a short time after and only walked for 5 minutes before it quit. We thought it had overheated. The treadmill is a hand-me-down from Lex's grandmother. The elliptical is a hand-me-down from a friend of my sons. The exercycle is a hand-me-down from my neighbor. I bought the gazelle about 10 years ago and the two balls and weights I have purchased over the years.
Out of all the equipment, my treadmill was my favorite. It probably had about 5000 miles on easy. I wasn't the only one to use it, and it was nothing to jump on it and do a quick two miles. Unfortunately, this is not a good time to replace it. I have a trip to Ireland planned for May and I just purchased the tickets (Alaska to Ireland) and the tour package for two. At this moment, I can't afford to pay attention, much less replace a treadmill. So this is my sad face ....

    Looks like an opportunity to explore other types of exercise you might enjoy like dancing around your room or walking outside more often. I remember when I was learning to drive a stick shift. I made a habit of going to work very early just to avoid driving my car in traffic because I was too scared. Since I got to work so early, it gave me time to go on the gorgeous hiking trail nearby. So, my "problem" turned out to be one of my biggest blessings. I hope that's how it turns out for you!

    So sorry to hear that Wanda. You were on a roll with some great walking over the last several weeks. Knowing you though, you are very creative and you will find a way to keep going. Hang in there! emoticon
