Gold Star Moment!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Hey, I managed to get 45 minutes in on the treadmill this morning. And I did it without anxiety about my blood pressure. The best gift my hubby ever gave me was putting a LED tv up on the wall in front of my treadmill. I just signed into my Amazon Prime account and put on a tv episode (I am currently finishing up the Eureka series) and I went to walking!! An episode lasts about 43-44 minutes and I put in a full 45. My speed is only at 2.5mph given my current condition with the weight, knees etc. but it was 45 minutes maintained. I feel like I really should give myself a gold start today!!! emoticon

The vegan eating is going well. I ended up making myself a smoothie for breakfast. My husband looked at it like it was goo and declined but I rather enjoyed it. I put into a blender a banana, frozen blueberries and strawberries, a cup of spinach, ˝ c of Almond Breeze milk, tablespoon of ground flaxseed and a tsp of agave. It was really yummy and filling. The hubby did love the Blackbean Chili I made last night. He washed it down with his “vegan” beer. He doesn’t mind eating vegan when it doesn’t feel like he is. emoticon

    Way to go - 45 minutes is great. Don't worry about the speed, that will come as you lose weight and build up stamina!
