Operation Treadmill Day Three - Evening

20 mins - definitely doing better in the eve compared to mornings - as I lumbered my sweaty self to the shower I heard the bargaining commentary about 'not doing morning's' start but shut it off. I can do this. I can. 21 days to form a habit - one step at a time.

Still waiting for the endorphin rush. I had that once in my 30's when I had been walking outside in the country. I was lighter then - so maybe it'll come when more weight comes off. Or maybe it's because I was walking in cowboy boots.

I'll get there. I am still only doing 3.5 mph at peak but am thrilled I'm doing it. I feel fate or Murphy were testing. with me as I caught a cold Sunday for the first time in can't remember when that has now progressed to a bronchial infection. I'm a disgusting walking sniffling hacking vortex of ick. But I will not let this keep me off treadmill.

You're doing so well! 3.5 mph is a LOT better than 0, right? :) You'll get there. It does take time to work up stamina and pace. So far you're doing much better than I. I feel that I'm at 0.

You are doing great! At 4 MPH on my treadmill, I am at a "trot" (insert disturbing mental image of jiggling here) - 3.5 MPH is perfect. Remember our good moral teaching friends, the tortoise and the hare!

Thanks Keld & Jess... I repeatedly tell myself it's all about being in better health for my old age and lowering my cholesterol and all those other 'not necessarily weight loss' reasons because if I allow myself to look af the 'calories burned' display box I'll think 'are you kidding me?' On a funny note while I know it's not possible. I've been pumping my arms and stretching reaching etc ((when I have my eyes open)) and last night it really looked like my batwings were a little smaller ... but I was still a little lightheaded. :/)
