Day 3 - Treadmill Queen..

I am loving my treadmill and have been on it for the last two nights and doing great.  I walk for one lap at 2.5 miles per hour and then I speed it up for a lap and then I incline it for the last lap.  I am sweating when I am done with my 30 min.  I am walking as soon as I get home from work and then I cook supper and do some household chores.  I try and do my chores as I am cooking supper, because once I finally sat down I am through for the night.  As long as I am moving I am okay and can keep going.  I have a list of things that I am trying to get done and so I chose one major thing a night and try and get it done before I stop.  Right now I am working on cleaning up my extra bedroom and getting it organized so that I can get in it. 

Okay clothes are becoming an issue for me and I am going to have to go and buy some jeans this weekend.  All my clothes are getting way to big and they look like I am wearing some one's clothes besides mine.  I have always love clothes though and I had a closet full, but everything is getting way to big for me now.  I am going to start with a couple pair of jeans from Walmart and work from there.  It is a good thing that I can wear jeans to work. 

I am also starting to take vitamin D and a calcium tablet once a day.  This seems to help me feel better and help my energy stay up all day.  Well enough rambling for today.  Here is yesterday's food journal.

Have a great day..

Love that clothes too big problem. It does get expensive sometimes though. I have some clothes that I can shrink into so I'm happy about that. Good idea to get on the treadmill as soon as you get home from work. If I don't do that then it can get too late and I don't want to exercise. Keep it up, Debbi.

Sounds like exercise is being slotted into your everyday life very nicely. Well done, ma'am.

I have the clothes issue now, too, Debbie. I don't want to buy anything nice yet. I am doing as you said, buying at Wal-Mart or somewhere relatively cheap and just making it through on a few new pieces. Good job on the treadmill. It sounds as if you are organized already for the New Year!

Contests on having to buy new clothes, celebrate the new clothes by putting on a fashion show for us!

COngrats on the new clothes. Might I suggest that you find a high end consignment shop. That way you can sell your old clothes, but still find nice new ones. It is the best of both worlds
