My new treadmill

Saturday, January 16, 2010

I went to look at the tread mill today and it was really nice, it looked like she hardly ever used's sort of big and she lived in a small house folds up and is called a space saver...I'm lucky we have a nice size family room and it will fit easy in there and I can watch the TV while I walk...
New flash Gary wants to use it He said he would like to walk on it at night when he usually watched TV...he use to say he doesn't need to exercise but he has had a change of heart when he sees the energy I get from daily exercise....not that he admits that...That's a different story.
I had a great day , walked at the mall with 2 other SparkPeople Members , we walked a bit over 60 minutes together but i come 45 minute early and walk...I walked 5.97 miles.... emoticon

have been busy most of the day..I feel so energized getting that much exercise...I'm thinking about changing my exercise routine for the rest of the winter...walking 5 miles at the mall friday, saturday, and sunday and using like monday for a less active day...that would mix my routine up a bit and the other days I can ride my bike and use my new treadmill...
I really enjoy the mall walk.
I'm going to try and fine some people who want to do the Avon walk fro breast cancer not sure I can walk 39 miles in 2 days but will give it best....
well our weather was just beautiful today, 65 degrees and sunny....I love this kind of weather for mid Jan.....snow stay away from here.

have a healthy Sunday

    The Avon Walk sounds interesting -- I'm going to look that up and see if there is anything like that anywhere within driving distance of me. It would be a great future objective for me. Thanks, friend!

    Way to go Kitt on the walking. I have always been a little interested in the mall walking concept. I'm going to keep your post in mind today and use it to motivate myself into action. All I need to do is get my shower, get dressed, get in the car and drive to one of the malls, and go for a short walk. I'm giving my journey a little boost today by kicking my efforts in gear. Just coming out of Fast Break and I can't take on too much exercise with my lack of mobility, but I can certainly take this small action step to get started with some exercise. I'm glad I read your post and it motivated me.

    I'm also glad you got your treadmill. The more you talk about it the more it sounds like the one I had one time. I hope it makes your exercise efforts a little easier and you enjoy using it. Also hope it proves to be motivating for your hubby and he starts using it too. Good luck!

    Kitt here in our little city they have a mall walking club that meets every morning at 8 am before the stores open up but the mall is of course open, and they all walk ...I still have not gone but a friend of mine says it is fun..
    You should go for it..

    love the idea of the treadmill and walking while watching television.. emoticon and hubby wants to do it fighting over

    You are inspiring me to get back to the exercise bike! Seems like my lungs have recovered from the December crud, so it's time to get back on my e-bike trip, eh?

    That's great that you have a new treadmill and that you've inspired Gary to get on it too. Way to go!!!

    Kitt you never fail to inspire me in so many ways, but especially with the exercise! My hubby mentioned he'd like to lose a few pounds and the frustrating thing is he can probably cut out eating daily candy and lose all he wants! Your blog gave me the emoticon to move my treadmill into the family room where he could watch the tv and maybe just maybe he'll get on it! I run on it with my ipod on so I just had it in the basement. Thanks for sharing, Special Lady!

    What a great plan Kitt.
    I know you well enough by now to know you will do it.
    I hope Gary does use that treadmill, he will learn to enjoy the exercise like you do.
    emoticon that would be great.
