the calm AFTER the storm

Last night I climbed over another gym fear. I conquered the treadmill. Oh yes, I went there. I hadn't always been a treadmill fraidy cat but in one of my earliers attempts to lose the poundage I did fall off one and hurt myself. That was the end of my treadmill r.ship. GONE. DEAD. I had not been on one since incase I fell off and embarrassed myself like the first time. However, the gym was fairly empty so I thought why the hell not. I did it. YAY. Nervously at first but ended up doing half an hour on 5.5 so all in all it worked out ok. I only did fifteen minutes on the bike and 15 on the cross trainer. But now including the treadmill mixes my routine up a bit so hopefully I shouldn't get too bored with the gym really early.

Today I ache. My thighs are a little sore from the treadmillness. I didn't feel like I was chafing but apparantely was. And my hips hurt. I didn't realise hula hooping could be so intense. However, I've had a nice long soak in th bath and nothing no longers aches like it did when I tried to drag my arse out of bed. I just enjoyed some chill con carne I had left over from the other day. It was yummy. I must make more. I have to go to the library and study today but I can't wait to come back and play around with the wii fit more. *hint hint @hopefool*

I am still smiling so all is well :D

Glad to hear you got over your bad breakup with the treadmill :)

So the hula hooping is a great workout too? I want a Wii so bad!

I'm glad you've mastered the treadmill... It's one of my favorite things at the gym.

I'm terribly jealous of your Wii.. I want one so bad, but can't afford it right now.

My sister flew off a treadmill too and she had track marks on her face for an entire day. Although, she was wearing platforms so...

Anyways, Im glad you conquered the treadmill :)

Add me to the list of people jealous of your Wii. ;)

Yay - you beat the treadmill!! :o)
When I was going to the gym I told the trainer that I get motion sick and I mightn't be able to stay on the treadmill long. She laughed her butt off (I was ok).

Isn't it amazing how the Wii can hurt you even though you don't realise it to begin with!! I am still going to get to one (maybe not today, like i said, i am too tired)... and we will compare notes, yes. :o)

@Dina
It was a r.ship worth reviving I feel. Yep. Hula hooping was a workout for me!! My hips have just recovered. Now for round two...

@Christy
Me too. It beats walking out in the freezing cold.

@May
Sorry to hear about your sisters story. Its never fun. Thanks, I'm glad too.

@Seashore

@Carlos

@Emily.
I was super scared that I'd fall. It felt I was going to fall all the time. Didn't feel nauseous or anything though. The wii is sneaky but I love it. ooo yay to you getting yours. woot.

I want a wii fit! We don't have a game system at all, but that's probably for the best lol.

Congrats on getting back on the treadmill! I prefer the elliptical but the tread is awesome too!
