My brother is mad at me...again.

What else is new? LOL. I stopped getting upset a long time ago. He was completely unsupportive of me getting a used treadmill. He said I wouldn't use it and he refused to help me pick it up. I did it myself. Now...I don't use it much. Here's why....I exceed the weight limit. Not something I took into consideration when I bought it. So the turny thing doesn't turn great when I'm on it. It's fine for my daughter which is how i know it's me. But I also don't use it because there are too many distractions at home. When I was using it often I wasn't doing much. Walking at 2.5 for 30 mins. Really, I can do better. I need exercise time to be about me! So I'm hitting the gym again starting tonight. I have everything packed and planned so there are NO excuses. Dinner is planned for a bit late, but reasonable. After I get back, because if I have dinner first I won't leave again and I know it. I have to drop Amanda off at home and head straight there, water bottle in hand, gear on. I'm updating the iPod touch now with my music and I brought headphones AND my Kobo so I have no reason to be bored on the treadmill.
I'll have to ease my knees into it somewhat, so probably do 30 mins at 2.5 then get on the elliptical for 30 but I can't not compete with myself so every time I go I'll be pushing myself to do better.
So he can be mad at me if it makes him feel better, but doable is more important than sticking to what I said. It didn't work for me and I thought it would. I'm over it and onto what I know works.
