hello! i have been reading for about a month and love the energy and support here. i am not sure i have much to contribute but i agree with much of what i read so i guess there is that! i really came out of the closet so i can get a TICKER! I crave positive reinforcement and visual is one of the best for me.
i did have a major accomplishment yesterday. i have been walking on the treadmill everyday for 30 days for about 45 min to an hour at 3.5 mph. i do this at work (we have workout room) and there is only one treadmill. usually i am totally alone in there but sometimes there is someone else waiting to use it. this is uncomfortable for me cause i feel i should cut my workout short and dont want to. there are 2 ellipticals tho. i tried one early on and it was just TOO difficult. turns out the is a big (really big) button labeled resistance. silly me!
so yesterday i decided i was going to conquer the elliptical! i knew i couldnt do the 50-60 min that i can on the treadmill but i was going to do the best i could.
I DID IT!
two 15 min bouts at the lowest resistance and then 5 more min at which point i thought i was going to puke. then did 15 min more on treadmill.
i am so freaking proud of myself!!
will do the same tomorrow!
nice to meet everyone!!
