Ugh Treadmill

So, about 11 months ago my husband bought me a treadmill that I asked for. It has been great. It was set up in our bedroom, I’d get my run in while watching some of my TiVoed shows. So, hey killing 2 birds with 1 stone. It has been used quite a bit. I’ve even watched entire movies while hitting the treadmill.
So, I love the thing. Until it was time to move it 2 weeks ago. Yeah, it wouldn’t fit through the door. I thought I was going to have 3 angry guys ready to kill me. Either that or the house was coming with a very expensive treadmill. End result was we had to take the thin apart. However, it wasn’t just undo a couple of bolts and voila ready to go. Yeah, that’d be too easy. Where the wires connect are up top instead of down by the track so not only did the bolts for the track have to be removed but also have the display screws had to be undone so that we could get to the wire connection.
Well, the husband has been working hard on getting the garage/workshop cleaned up and set up, being that tomorrow he’s working on a friend’s car it needs to be usable. Well after the fun of disassembling the treadmill to get it out of the house in Wyoming I was told my treadmill will not be coming into the house EVER again. So, tonight we reassembled the thing. What a pain in the ass that was. Just trying to get the wire up the leg support was an exercise in patience and puzzle solving. Then maneuvering everything back into place. Yeah we got a workout in just putting the thing together never mind needing to use it. So, yeah I’ll be using the treadmill in the garage, which means no TiVo. Oh but wait, it just means my husband needs to let me get TiVo stream.
Back to working out will be full steam ahead since my treadmill is back in working order and the house is finally set up.
Note to all those out there moving a treadmill is not fun.

Getting My Walk On

I’ve been spending an hour nearly every night hitting the treadmill. I haven’t been super motivated the last couple of days. I think I’m still recouping from my vacation. I need a vacation from my vacation apparently.
I’m hoping and looking forward to some nice weather here in Wyoming so that I can move the walking outside. Plus the husband will be home for a few weeks and that means some quality time with the husband and some exercise. Double bonus. Fingers crossed for some nice weather. Of course tomorrow the weather is calling for snow again. Ughhhh

I Love My Treadmill

Seriously, I am in love with my treadmill. I spend an awful lot of time on it every day. Okay, not a lot of time. I don’t think that it’s been more than an hour in one day, but still I use it everyday.

The best thing I did was make the decision to put it in the bedroom.  I mean it is literally the first thing I see when I wake up.  So it’s pretty hard to ignore it and not use it. I have plenty of room in my house to put the thing anywhere, but I wanted in the bedroom for 2 reasons the first being what I’ve already stated its in my face first thing in the morning, and second I wanted to be able to watch television while doing it. Because, let’s face it time on the treadmill can get quite boring and tedious. Add in some of my favorite shows, and I’ve killed 2 birds with one stone so to speak. I’m going to watch my shows anyway, so I might as well get some exercise in while doing so.

I am really, really loving my treadmill right now because I live in Wyoming, and Holy Crowbar Batman, it’s cold out. There is no way I’d motivate myself to go out and run in this weather, and not to mention there is also currently snow on the ground. Yeah, the treadmill purchase definitely well worth the money.

It’s Here!!!

I had told my husband that I wanted a treadmill.  I’ve been doing run training 3 times a week, and I’m serious about this exercising thing. As in its quickly become a big part of my life.

Is answer of course is go run outside its free. Thanks Honey, love you too. Here’s the thing I live in Wyoming, and it’s getting cold out, plus soon there will be snow covering the sidewalks and paths, and well who wants to run in that, not this girl that’s for sure. Plus, we factor in my asthma, and well you may find me thawed out in the spring somewhere.

I had been looking at different treadmills and pricing them out. I then found a ton of them that were currently on sale at a big chain department store. I picked out one I liked and kept hinting about it. I was completely prepared to save my pennies until I had enough. 2 days later the husband calls me from the store, with hey only have the one you like in the floor model they can’t get anymore. But, they do have this one, with yada, yada, yada. Now, I’m going to admit I pretty much stopped listening after he said he was looking at the treadmills and was getting one. What!? Okay, sweet, I don’t care get whatever one you want. I just want one.

Well we had some issues with getting the treadmill, and poor customer service, but today it came.  And, oh haven’t hey say some assembly required they weren’t kidding.  After an hour of teamwork we got the thing together. Then I looked at it and said, Holy Cow you got me a way better one than I asked for. His response, I told you I got you a good one.

Thank you Husband, you are one of a kind. Now, I know most women would be like, what! He bought you a treadmill me on the other hand am ecstatic. I also love getting kitchen appliances and cleaning gadgets. I’m weird I know. It’s okay, it makes me, me.

Needless to say I’m pretty excited about continuing my run training now that I can do in a warm environment and also watch some TiVo while doing said exercise.

And, here it is:
