Update from this morning...





So rather than sitting around bemoaning the fact that I didn't work out last night, I got up and went and walked on the treadmill before work. I didn't have as much time as I would have liked but at least I did something. I'm working on losing that mentality that tells me if I can't do it all perfectly then why bother. So even though I couldn't walk for the full hour I did it anyway. I walked for 40 minutes with the treadmill set at "rolling hills" with an average speed of 3.3 MPH. I actually had it set for 3.7 for most of the walk but it factors in the warm up and cool down portions in the totals.

I also made an appointment to meet with a trainer on Saturday to begin to help me plan a workout.

I had to dash into work and do something with my hair and make-up on the fly but I don't have to spend the day WISHING I had gone and walked.

I have a dental appointment after work so it was this morning or nothing.

I like walking in the mornings myself. I do walk when I get home but it is hard with having to cook supper and everything. I like the display on the treadmill, I wish mine would do that.
