Before I get into my "rant" I just have to say – "Breaking Dawn Part 2" was great!! That ending really blew me away. That's all I have to say. That, and I'll be seeing it again (with my daughter – again) this morning!!
Now, where was I? Oh yes. Since I lost my job, I've been doing a decent job at exercising. Hit the gym on M-W-F, walk outside on T-Th. Then the weather turned cold and put a wrench into things.
My motivation is waning.
I still go to the gym on M-W-F (well, except for those days, like today), but the walking isn't happening. First, it became too dark and I didn't have anything light colored to wear so I could be seen (since part of my course doesn't have sidewalks). Then it became too cold, so I resorted to the treadmill.
I'm finding I really, really, REALLY hate the treadmill in the basement. Ah heck, I just hate the treadmill. I don't mind using it for 20 minutes at the gym (as warm-up to weight-training), but for an hour, it's just too much.
I love walking outside. There's no quitting in the middle because I still have to walk back. But on a treadmill?
Yeah, I can step off that thing any damn time I want. And I am.
30 minutes into my walk outside, and I have a 30 minute walk home. 30 minutes into my walk on the treadmill, and I'm done. That's if I make it that far.
Why oh why is it so hard for me? My willpower SUCKS, that's for sure.
I sure hope I survive the winter. I'd hate to have to start all over again, because that's even worse.
Any tips on how I can stay on the stupid thing?
working (and I LOVE to read!!). Or should I just be glad I'm at least walking
30 minutes on the sucker? Reading
