My treadmill is back and ready for use - very happy :)
I woke up to a wonderful surprise yesterday, hubby had opened the treadmill for me and cleaned the motor out. There were pens, pegs, bits of paper, corn chips and some dried apple although it wasn't dried when I gave it to the kids.
I know I could have opened it and done it myself, but if I had of broken it in some way I would never have heard the end of it so if hubby broke it instead, nothing would have ever been said about it which is best for everyone.
I decided not to do any intervals yesterday and opted for a TV Workout. I chose one of my many recorded programs (I get last dibs on the foxtel) to watch and started "wogging." I have come across this term on Daily Mile, it's a combination of walking and jogging - I walked during the show and then ran during the ads. My speed varied from 6.5 - 10 depending on how I was feeling at that particular moment. I ended up doing 6.5 kms in 60 mins.
There were many times I just wanted to stop, but I was watching the US Biggest Loser and I just pretended that my best mate Jill (you can see a picture of us together here) was yelling at me.
My HRM died yesterday, well the battery anyway and of course it's an unusual size and the 3 different stores I went to yesterday didn't carry it. I later checked the internet and found that I can get a "pack" of batteries for $6.95, but they are currently out of stock.
I have so much to do to get the house ready for Mama Solis (Desperate Housewives reference) who arrives tomorrow. Most of the house is done, but I still have heaps to do - must get moving.
I gained 1.4 kg this week! I don't know what I did so bad that caused the gain. I did some exercise, clearly not enough, but I was careful with my food. I didn't track though, which I am certain is my downfall. I probably ate stuff I wasn't aware of because I wasn't writing it down and I am pretty sure I didn't drink enough water. Never mind, just a small set back, but it's enough to get me right back on track.

- Do you need to track EVERYTHING?
