75 minute walk before 8am

I did it again, I got on the treadmill bright & early (6:45am). However, not 2 minutes later did my daughter wake up & my husband was already at the gym. Disney Junior & some juice to the rescue! I put her downstairs with me & walked for 75 minutes!! I was only going to do 30 minutes but with Thanksgiving coming up, I decided to keep going. I know I'm only walking but I put it on an incline & I was definitely feeling the burn in my legs.

I watched 2 episodes of Glee & it went by pretty fast! My weigh-in Friday only showed a .2 lb loss but the next morning the scale said I lost 3 lbs. I blame it on Aunt Flow being in town...that bitch. I'm going to weigh myself Wednesday morning & not beat myself up on Friday morning when I gain 45 lbs from the Thanksgiving binge eating that will most likely occur.

Happy Holidays!

another early morning workout

I did it again, twice in one week! I woke up around 5:45, my daughter was crying & my husband was on his way to the gym. He put her in bed with me & a sippy cup of juice & once she decided to go back to bed (6:25ish), I went down to the basement, grabbed the iPad & got on the treadmill! I walked for 52 minutes while I watched Glee. It went a lot faster than Monday's walk. I went about 4 miles & burned 500 calories.

Ah...if only I was a runner but I'm not at this point. I used to run on the treadmill years ago but let's walk before we run, people!...literally. The thought of waking up at 6am & running...not so much. Walking I can handle. So that's what it's going to be for now. Slow & steady!!

Loving Glee, I'm half way through season 1!

6am Workout

So I dusted off the old treadmill, grabbed my iPad & walked for 40 minutes while I watched an episode of Glee....at 6am. That's kind of early for me but it was surprisingly easy! I laid my clothes & sneakers out the night before, which helped! Our 2 year old little girl was in our bed since she woke up in the middle of the night so as soon as my alarm went off I grabbed my phone, snoozed it, grabbed my clothes & went down to the basement where the treadmill is.

I'm glad I did it, I burned 4 activity points (Weight Watchers) & I'm pretty proud of myself. I mentioned it to my husband last night & he is always so encouraging so I didn't want to let him down.

Sidenote: I know I'm late to the party but I am SO into Glee - Season 1. I've been watching Season 5 (I tuned in to see the Beatles episodes, tribute to Cory Monteith, etc) & I really like it.
