Trying to Stay Motivated On Those Hazy Lazy Days of Summer

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Today is one of those days when you just want to stay home in an air conditioned room.
It's 84 degrees and the humidity is stifling. There's thunderstorm alerts for this afternoon and on to tomorrow.

It's days like this when I wish the treadmill was up here in my living room and not down in a stuffy basement. Our treadmill is 10 years old, motorized and weighs a ton, I use it (I admit) sporadically in the winter.

Yesterday I made the decision to buy a manual treadmill, it is the one endorsed by Denise Austin. It's smaller, lighter, and under $200. It's going to take me four months to pay for it, lol, but if it benefits our health, it's worth it. This one had very good reviews on

So, I am excited and apprehensive at the same time. I don't want it to turn into a clothes hanger-upper! emoticon

I haven't done any walking yet, but I plan to do a walking DVD in a little while.

Have a great Wednesday, friends!

    It's nice to have a treadmill for the rainy days and especially the cold days! I actually like having mine in the basement as it gives me some time alone. The only one that will usually follow me down there is the dog.

You made me smile.

I've had a treadmill clothes hanger before. Not anymore! emoticon

Great decision to workout. Not forgetting that even small bursts add up! emoticon

Put on your favorite music and pretend you're at a concert!
