The Treadmill

My treadmill and I eyed each other suspiciously several times yesterday, but neither of us made the first move.

I almost just went swimming, but my allergies kicked in so bad yesterday! I can't imagine getting in the water with my sinuses plugged up like this. :o(

Guess I should just take Melissa's advice and walk for a bit. I almost did a couple times, but it's hard if I don't get it in first thing in the morning. Part of it is that BFL has me thinking I have to do all these things perfectly. I have to run in a fasted state, and I have to do HIIT (high intensity interval training) etc. etc. But in reality, wouldn't a nice brisk walk on the treadmill be better than nothing?

So, I'm going to do it today. For Reals. ;o)

Aren't seasonal allergies awful? They make everything twice as hard for me, like I'm slogging through mud up to my knees.

You don't have to be perfect RIGHT NOW. Just take it a little at a time. You'll get there.

Small life changes are a great start. Don't kill yourself exercising because you will hate it and it will always be a chore.

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

Don't beat yourself up. You're doing great just walking. That is what's most important.

Something is always better than nothing. And honestly? I know that they say to help you lose weight to run or exercise hard when you haven't eaten, but I've noticed that when I'm really hungry when I exercise--I don't have near the endurance than when I've eaten . . . and I don't have much endurance to begin with so I REALLY notice it!!
