I think I am overdoing it!

I’ve been on the treadmill twice today! I think I overdid it!
I had planned on going on for short intervals. Say 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
I managed to do two 15 minute intervals. I was going to go on again in an hour but I think I wont. I’ll pass on it I think for tonight.
I’m just too tired. And I feel a little sore and a little weak too.
No point in doing it all at once, is there?
I’m feeling a bit anxious as well. Not sure why. I just feel a little shaky and kinda nervous.
Nervous energy maybe? Who knows…


15 minutes, tops!
That’s all I can do!
Exercising, woohoo!

Never thought
In a million years
That I could
Do this, and do it well
But oh man!
My fitness level is going to be swell!

Now off
On the treadmill I hop
One, two three
I just cant stop!



It arrived, finally! It arrived at 12:30! Mom had come over to my house at 10:30. She said she was just sitting at home waiting for me to call her to tell her it was here, so she decided to just come over.

The box it arrived in was huge! There were so many parts to it!

My sister came over when she finished work, and its lucky she did! She helped mom to set it up! Luckily she was able to read the diagram that came with the parts. Between them they set it up.

And its great! I’ve already tried it out! I went on it for 15 minutes this afternoon.

I love it! I’m going to go on it for another 30 minutes this evening. Its pretty easy to operate too which is nice! The buttons are ones you can feel, which when you are blind makes a huge difference.

I’m so glad I got it. I’m glad I spent the money on it. Its going to really benefit me! I will hopefully lose a lot more weight from all the exercise. My plan is go on it every day, for anything up to an hour a day. I will start off at 30 mins though. Just to get myself used to it!

I can walk at a speed of 3.5 miles which is six kilometres!

I’m ready to start exercising! So bring it on!

Sleep oh sleep!

Sleep is not coming tonight! I am trying but nope! No joy!
I hope I get a little sleep! Even a little will do!
I am nervous about tomorrow, about the treadmill delivery. I hope the driver is going to call me before he arrives! I requested that they do! You never know though if they will or not! They may just arrive!
I bet they’ll come super early! I remember the last time I got a treadmill they came at like 7:30 in the morning!
I will have to be up, dressed and ready for them!
I suppose I should be actually laying down and really trying hard to go to sleep now!
So I will say good night! If I cant sleep I’ll be back!

A happy morning ramble

I had a restful nights sleep! So I am all refreshed and rejuvenated! I feel good!

I woke up at around 9:30. Mom came in my room and I woke. She made me a cup of tea and brought it in to me. How sweet of her!

I drank my tea and got up then and went online. I caught up on my email and read a few blogs. I also answered my comments and stuff.

Dad took the dogs out walking. While he was out I hopped in the shower. Because dad has a bowel issue we have to try to leave the bathroom free a lot. So its hard to actually be able to have a shower at mom and dads. I almost always wait until he’s gone out to have one because then I can relax in it.

Now I am feeling great though after showering. I ate a bowl of vegetable soup for breakfast. Isnt that funny? Soup for breakfast? It was delicious though.

I have no plans for the rest of the day. I will have dinner here today then I will go home this afternoon. My treadmill is arriving in the morning. I am excited about it. I hope mom and my sister will be able to set it up! I hope it will be easy to set up.

I will try to go on it for an hour a day once its set up! Then the weight will fall off me! I hope, anyway!

I think I’ll read my book for a while. I was going to read before I went to sleep last night but then I didn’t do it. I was too tired. I thought if I started reading, I’d never go to sleep. If I get into the book at all I am addicted and cant seem to put it down.

Well I’d better get going now and take my morning meds before I forget about them!

Feeling Fab!

I am feeling fab! I had a fantastic workout today! Mom took me to the gym thanks mom I love you! I will show my appreciation for her just by doing some nice things for her to say thank you! She does so much for me! I did the treadmill today for 30 minutes. I did 2 KM on there. At a speed of 3.4. I was tired out after it! I was going to do the bike too but then I didnt feel up to it so I left it for another day. We also walked down to the gym, its a short 12 minute walk but we did it which was more exercise! Now I feel fabulous! My mood is great. I am feeling so good! Exercise really does make you feel good!

Shedding the pounds, day 1

today I started my weight loss journey.

I weighed myself this morning. I am 228 pounds, or 102 kgs.

I’d like to lose about 70 to 80 pounds this year, if i could.

Thats not gonna be easy. I’ve battled with weight for so long. It seems like a lot. But I am determined. I can do this.

I went on the treadmill this morning. I got up early just so that I could do my exercise while I felt energised. I went on and I walked for 20 minutes.

I felt sooo good after it.

I’ve eaten really healthily today. I ate fruit for breakfast. A sandwich and a yogurt for lunch. A baked potato and some fish for dinner. And I’ve just had a snack of some more fruit.

I’m going to try to only weigh myself once a week. Otherwise I’ll drive myself crazy.

Heres to the end of day one. Its been a great start and long may it continue.
