I’m Back in the Saddle…errrr….Treadmill Again…..

Of course this is what I look like on the treadmill!!

It has been since July 23rd, since I have been on the treadmill.  Yes, THE treadmill that I begged and pleaded for and got for Christmas just 8 months ago.  Yes, my life has been busy, but there have definitely been days that I could have found 30 minutes to get on the treadmill.  So, today, I looked at my planner where I keep track of my life and found that is has been a MONTH since I was last on the treadmill.  My body shows it too.  So, back on it I went.  No, today wasn’t my best time or my best distance, but I got on and worked up a dripping sweat!  It felt good.  I also tried something different today as well, reading while on the treadmill.  I have always watched a movie/tv show on the iPad through Netflix, but today, I thought I would try reading since I hear lots of other people do it.  Ugh! Not for me!  I had trouble keeping my balance.  I couldn’t see the words and so I gave that up.  I would love to hear how other people do it and any tips because it would be great if I could.  I have lots of reading to catch up on.  But, I guess I will go back to my movie watching.  Even with the upcoming Netflix changes, we decided to keep the Instant and just drop back to 1 movie at a time at home.  So, that keeps our rate the same and we still feel like we have options.  So, guess it is time for me to get back into the routine of the treadmill – and finishing the movie, PRECIOUS.  I started it last month on the treadmill and need to finish it.  How about you, what do you do while on the treadmill?  Do you have any excuses that trip you up?  Mine is I don’t want to shower twice in one day.  It really doesn’t work for me to shower first in the morning.  I am much better late morning or late afternoon.  So, if I need to get up and shower in the morning, I don’t want to have to do it again a few hours later.  Thoughts?  How do you work your treadmill/workout time into your day?
