paphs4me, I know how you feel..I use to have the "treadmill dreads"...would take me about an hour just to get started... I'd set it up....think about it, get distracted, hmmm go get some water...ooh a magazine... lalala..Geez, I coulda been done by now! sigh...
here are some things that helped me...
Listen to some peppy music, pretty soon you'll be in step with the beat
If you can set it up in front of a tv that helps too.
If you can't, put a interesting picture or poster up in front of it... (I would use a picture and focus on it and think what the people were doin, where is the picture at..corny, but it worked for me..)
Set a goal of 10 minutes.. see how you feel,challenge yourself to do just a little more (You'll be surprised that once the blood gets pumping, you'll do a few minutes more...and more and more..)
Set small achievable goals for yourself .( go 1 mile, go 20 minutes etc)
When you are procrastinating,remind yourself of what your long term goal is , and all the benefits of just getting on it to do just 5 more minutes. Think about the Fat you are burning, that your legs are getting stronger
, that you are getting healthier with each step.
I prefer to walk outside mostly... but use my treadmill now when the weather is bad...
hope this helps ya
