Just a quick update to say that I’m still here! I had a
bit ok, a huge, pity party this week and was pulled up by a wonderful group of people in a weight loss challenge group I’m in. It’s amazing how those of us in this battle band together and help each other up when we call for help. I think there are only two people in this group I’ve ever met in real life, at that’s only at my work, but none of that matters! We’re all in this together and it’s been a blessing without a doubt! <3!
I also decided a little over a week ago that I was going to buy a treadmill! I know how important walking is to weight loss but most days I just cannot make myself go! I’m too lazy to dress the kids, make sure everyone pees, has snacks and has things to be amused on the walk. Then there is the unloading of the massive double stroller,weather, blah, blah blah, excuses, excuses. But the reality was that those excuses were holding me back and I wasn’t putting any effort in to overcome them, so I got a treadmill off Kijiji! Hubby and I did some online research to make sure it was going to suit us because I wanted one as quiet as possible since our room is next to the little dude’s room, and I also needed one with a high weight limit, which surprisingly the majority of them have a weight limit of 250 which I expected to be higher honestly. Found an awesome one (Epic 425 mx) and my amazing sister in law and her awesome boyfriend helped me lug this MASSIVE thing home and it was NOT easy and took 3 hours from start to finish! Regardless it is now in (and taking up most of) my bedroom and after some belt tightening and troubleshooting it’s working great (major thanks to C.S for the help!!) 🙂
SO my goal for the week to do 2-3 half hour walks a day!! I have a lot of ground to make up in this weight loss journey and we didn’t go through all that effort of lugging that treadmill home for it to be used as a closet!
When I say MASSIVE, I mean it! Here’s my Little Dude inspecting the treadmill upon arrival (note that he’s 21months and in the 97% for height so he’s NOT as small as he looks lol)
(Also ignore the clothes on the bed I was putting them away, honest 😛 )
