Completed my first week of treadmill training and have moved on to week #2. WOOHOO!! I didn’t get on the TM on Sunday because I figured the vigorous house cleaning I did that day would count as triple-time on the treadmill. I mean, I was actually sweating – bathtubs don’t scrub themselves you know, especially after they have been occupied by 10 year old boys. I cleaned my house within an inch of its life I think. But now it feels so good to come home to a clean house. Clean house = peaceful Jill. And everyone loves a happy mom!
I received my Just My Size yoga DVD and I actually like it. It is very easy – great for beginners and klutzes like me. I have only done it once, but I was sore the next day so I know I worked some muscles. Finding a quiet moment to do it is the challenging part. My 2 year old kept crawling under my downward facing dog and trying to crawl over my child’s pose. It was an interesting work out I tell you, but enjoyable. I‘d like to do it again, but like I said, finding a quiet time around my house is next to impossible! Also just received When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies. I’m only on page 10, so I don’t really have anything to say about it yet. I’ll let ya know…
I didn’t think I was going to get around to the TM last night, but after dinner and after getting the kids ready for bed, I was feeling really pissy for some odd reason (I really don’t know why, just not in a good mood) and I thought that getting on the treadmill and away from the family for a few minutes sounded really really good. So I put on the New Balances and headed for the garage. Turned on the classic rock station and started walking. It felt so good that when my 20 minutes were up, I considered staying on, but I needed to get the girls to bed and the boy to get ready for bed, so I reluctantly got off, but I felt triumphant that I did my 20 minutes.
Eating has been okay, a bit on the bingey side, but not out of control. Tonight we go pick new mattress set – I’m so excited! Sleeping in a canyon is not fun.
