Don & I decide to do something for our hearts this past Valentine's Day, so we got a Treadmill. We've been bustin' tail on it for the past few weeks and I can say that I've built up some stamina and done some toning. As I sit down to type this up, Kellar decided to hop on and proceed to run 1.33 miles - yes - miles in less than 10 minutes - without really breaking a sweat. Can I just say that I can't walk 1.33 miles in 15 minutes! As he shuts it off, he walks away saying, "Wow, Mom, I feel like a brand new man!" (snort... and now I feel really really old and decrepit)!
One of my blog buddies from Get Stronger Stay Stronger threw down a challenge to the cheering section to maintain our goal for the week and reward ourselves for a job well-done (read: no cheating on the goal!) So - for purposes of being held accountable for my end of the bargain, I'm laying it on the line: 4x of 30min Treadin' w/ minimum 6 min of running included, and 2x of Yoga with my dh! My reward: not getting out of bed til 9a on Saturday! (may sound lame to some of you... but to me.... sleep is wonderful for the insomniac!)
For once in my life I can say that the # on the scale isn't my big concern. Instead, it's how rapidly I'm approaching 40 and can feel the years aching away on my body! I need to be in the best of health - for myself, for my hubby, for my kids, and for the Lord! I come from a long line of women who die at an old age... I don't want to die "old".... so, it's up to me to make the change!
Here's to YOGA tonight!
