Thanks for the support and advice everyone.
Tarz - unfortunately no! Before buying the treadie, I hired one to make sure that I'd actually use it, and I did - loved it, lost about 6kg. SOOOO, then hubby purchased one for me! (Really sweet, but never send a man to do a womans job
) Guys being guys, the spouse assumed that bigger HAS to be better - had the damned thing delivered, but it's too big and heavy to get upstairs to the exercise room (with convenient TV
). It's been sitting in the family room for the last six months, and I hate using it where I feel like I'm on display
. Aaany day now, we're going to change around the study (downstairs) and the exercise room so that I can have my TV again! I know what you mean - when you're watching TV, the time just goes.
Anyhoo, have taken all the advice to heart and have managed to get on the treadmill twice since Sunday. Didn't do any exercise yesterday, coz I had to fly to Sydney for work, so was up at 4.30am, and back home, passed out on the couch at 8.30pm! (I know, excuses, excuses.....) But have just finished 30mins on the treadmill @ 4.5km per hour - burnt 300 calories
(got through 30 mins by visualising myself in some of my really nice but too small clothes
