Day 9

Friday, December 28, 2012

Last night I felt so guilty about not exercising this week that I decided to go to the gym and walk on the treadmill. I had planned on doing 1 hour to help make up for being lazy but that didn't work out like I planned. About 20 minutes into my walking I almost quit. I was so bored and if I must admit it the incline part of it was killing me. I had set it to cardio which got my heartrate up to 135 but to get it there it had the incline to 9 and I thought I was going to die. It did go down after that and I continued for another 10 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. I hated every minute of it. So today when I went to walk it was raining and I started back into the house and thought about how much I hated walking on that treadmill and turned back around. I walked in the rain with an umbrella for 40 minutes. I must have looked kind of crazy because everyone in the cars that passed me looked at me as if I was a fruitcake. LOL hope you all have a great weekend.

    It is so much harder to exercise when we dislike the activity. Any other exercise you could do that you might find more fun? Or any way to distract yourself while exercising? I like to listen to my Kindle while I walk outside and will watch DVD's on the treadmill.

    Hope you get your mojo back soon!
