So even though I told you I don’t believe in New Year’s resolutions, I did mention that I’m all for change. Sustainable change, that is. And my latest change is moving my workout indoors. I’ve been freezing my butt off walking/running in icy gale force winds lately and I decided that if I wanted to keep the flesh that’s covering my body in tact, I might want to invest in a new treadmill.
You can see my new piece of equipment above. (smack dab in the middle of the cookies and crackers, perfect) I went with a desk/treadmill combo because I spend way too much time on the computer. Seriously, way too much time. Blogging and social media in general can be very sedentary. A treadmill desk was just what I needed to keep my fanny moving. I love it mucho.
I was worried that I wouldn’t be coordinated enough to work and walk at the same time, but I quickly found out that it was a cinch. As long as I walk 2mph or so, I can type and walk no problem.
Matter of fact, I did 8.5 miles on it today. My goal was ten miles but I forgot that I promised myself a free weights workout which cut my treadmill time short. 8.5 miles is still pretty dang respectable, if I do say so myself.
In related healthy news, I stumbled across these Special K Popcorn Chips at the grocery store this week. (part of the gas points deals) And I have to tell you, I really like them. Perfect for munching on while watching Downton Abbey. Speaking of Downton Abbey, I will never forgive them for killing my Matthew off. Never.
And because you haven’t seen my smiling face lately, here you go. I’m turning 44 this week and I got a new do to make myself feel better about my impending old age. Notice that I’m embracing the curls. Another change I’m trying to make now that my hair is growing longer.
That’s about all that’s new on my side of the computer screen. How are things on your side? Anything new and exciting?
