Seriously, what were we thinking? We were thinking it was hilarious!!
I have been exercising on the treadmill for 6 weeks, 5 days a week. I started at 2mph for 20 minutes and it was difficult for me. Scary but true. I would bump up the incline or the speed every few days and I am so proud of myself that I am now at 3-3.5 mph (warm up on 3-then 3.5-cool down on 3) for 45 minutes at a 3 incline. I know it might not sound like a very huge accomplishment for you marathon runners but for a chubbo girl like me it is amazing. I exercise when I don't feel like it (even when it is "that time of the month" lol) and I really miss it when I miss a day. Who would have thought that I actually like..no LOVE...exercising!
And an added bonus is that my elevated blood pressure is coming down! Praise the Lord! At my Drs appointment at the end of December my BP was 145/89-it had been up to 151/90. Not HORRIBLE but definitely not healthy. I checked it at work about a week ago and it was 131/85. AMAZING!!! I am hoping by the end of February that it will be down to a normal range of 120/80. I will keep your posted!!!
