Chapter 2

I thought briefly about taking tonight off of the treadmill walking.

But then I realized I hadn't hit 5k steps anyway so I needed to. Of course silly me forgot to put the fitbit on when I changed till .5 of a mile in. Whoops!  About 90% of chapter 2 listened to in 30 minutes while dinner was in the oven. I didn't finish the whole thing because I looked ahead and Ch. 3 is only 25 minutes so I wanted to at least pad it till 30 for my next walk.

1.50 yesterday 35 min
1.25 today  30 min
I wonder how many miles I can get (rounded) out of this book. LOL

It was really nice to be looking forward to my treadmill time for a change. Most of the time it feels like a chore but today it was enjoyable.


  1. Kudos for doing your walking!! I like your idea of the audio book. I haven't used my treadmill in over a year because I am about 30+ pounds over the suggested max weight. When I was using it though, it was hard to stay motivated to stay on so long. I like the idea of an audio book. It would help keep the mind busy while the body did the work. I need to hurry up and lose some weight so I can get back on there. Keep up the good work. Hope you have a great weekend.

  2. That is cool. Putting that carrot out in front of you and having that positive motivation. Same for me with walking and photography. Or cleaning the house and listening to podcast. I want the reward more and it pushes the stinking thinking out of my way long enough to start.

    Keep up the good work. Pedometers and measurements are powerful tools.

  3. The other thing I use is Netflix on my iPad. Watch a 40 minute show, while doing a jog, makes it fly by. Good for you, for sticking with your plan!

  4. I don't like my treadmill at all at the moment!
    Yaa for you getting on it though.
