On the treadmill

That was me at 5:30 this morning. I figure if I can force myself to go to bed at 10:30, instead of watching all the new shows on last night, and get up at 5:30 am when it was 18 degrees outside and our heat isn't on yet, and get on the treadmill, then I should be okay.

I took it slow. I haven't exercised since 10/15/2010. At that point I was walking for 45 minutes at 3.2 mph. Today I decided to only go at a max of 2.9. I don't want to overdo it right away and hurt myself. It was more important to hit the time versus the speed/distance.

I know I won't be waiting 6 weeks again to do more than just the treadmill. I was just about the venture onto other things in October when I had a cold for 3 1/2 weeks. By the time I felt up to doing anything, it was close to the holidays and I said screw it. Not very good.

I still want to stick to my plan of doing cardio on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday - but soon that cardio may include my Step Video which does some weights at the end, Jillian's 30-day Shred - which is still in it's package, and kickboxing. But I think soon I will try to add in some weights on Sunday. I know Monday and Thursday's will be my rest days. So maybe Sunday do purely strength training and then Tuesday and Friday do cardio/strength, and Wednesday/Saturday pure cardio.

One step at a time. One step at a time.
