7 Days of Sanity: Day 2 is DONE!

Hey, y’all!

This one is going to be even shorter than yesterday, but I promise I’m working on something great for ya in the next couple days.

For now, I’m reporting in that I’ve done 30 minutes and 30 seconds on the treadmill. You may remember that the white board that sits above my treadmill says “Do 30 seconds more than you did yesterday”….so that’s me meeting that challenge.  🙂

Why is it, though, that after only two days of exercise…at only 30 minutes each…I feel like this:








Isn’t it funny that I know I’m not doing anything major compared to anyone else, but to me…every time I’m done on the treadmill…it’s a victory. I guess it doesn’t matter, does it? All that matters is that I didn’t quit. I’ve spent the last 20 years quitting on myself – and now I’m not.

My back and butt and legs are aching, but that’s okay…I know they’re supposed to. All day today, they’ve been a reminder that I kept my promise to myself yesterday. All day today, they’ve nagged at me – reminding me that I’m going to have to do it again tonight if I’m going to stick by my word. And I did. Aches, pains, and all. I kept my promise to myself again.

I’m working on another Get Real! post this week…till then, tell me how you’re doing. Are you moving more?

  1. Yea for you! and yea for me, too!  It’s good to know others are on the treadmill, wii, etc. going the 30 min right along with me!  

  2. Me too!!! Same cardio DVD as yesterday, but here’s something that I might try for tomorrow. I love to dance…I’m a terrible dancer, but still. I collected a few songs in my repertoire that are those line dancing/wedding type dances–Electric Boogie, Cupid Shuffle, etc. I have put them all in a playlist on my iPod. Hit shuffle and…..voila! Instant cardio workout! Most of the time you can find instructions for these dances on Youtube, not to mention that for the most part they are self explanatory. Here’s to one day closer to day 7! Good luck!

  3. You know you got me moving and something did give ’cause the scale went down again (YEAH !) i have lost 24 pounds in 8 weeks and i really thrilled….the 10 kilo mark was important to me 🙂
    I am proud of you for doing another 30 seconds even more for getting on the treadmill again !

    Keep up the good work and keep blogging about it 🙂
