1. We got the treadmill almost one week ago. It’s been great. The only thing is…we haven’t had an opportunity to rearrange our bedroom so that the treadmill faces the television. Right now, it’s directly in front of a wall. I was joking around yesterday with a co-worker saying I needed a rearview mirror on my ‘mill.
Last night, as I was about to get on the treadmill (not because I had a scheduled run, but because I wanted to eat pizza for dinner) for a nice 30-40-minute run, I decided to make use of the extra mirror we have yet to hang up in our house.
|Hello, flat screen.|
I watched American Idol (I like the new judges, but was it just me being creeped out by Steven Tyler flirting with young girls?) and did an easy 40 minutes alternating jogging and walking. All so I could have two pieces of pizza. And then…I only ate one (because I wanted a Skinny Cow).
Have you ever had to “get creative” with your exercise set-up?
2. Tonight, I am super excited to be having dinner with Chelsea, Jill, Mel and Zoe. I’m sure we’ll all have bloggy-dinner recaps tomorrow. 🙂
3. Mom vs. Marathon has 190 followers! Thank you so much! I love having this community to share my successes and failures. It’s been so great!
I totally did that with the mirror once. The treadmill was in the office and I had to put up a mirror so I could see the laptop I was watching movies on.Super jealous of your dinner plans. Wish I could jump on a plane and join you all!
Yes, Steven Tyler is creepy especially since he could be their grandfather! Even creepier is that these really young girls are flirting with him… That said, I still love Aerosmith and their concert was one of the best I've seen.
Years ago when we first got our treadmill it was in our bedroom right next to the bed on Hubby's side… I ran every morning at 5:30 am while he tried to sleep with a pillow over his head. It only took a YEAR of this for him to finish off our rec room so that the treadmill could go in there 🙂
My mill is in the corner of our garage. Facing a white wall.I've had to get creative (Read: ghetto) with our setup. I currently have an ikea chair precariously balanced on top of our Christmas decoration tote, so I can put our largest laptop on top & watch Hulu. The bad thing is that the laptop isn't that loud so I have to wear earphones. I can just picture the computer go flying if I go flying off the mill.
My 'mill is in my computer room, facing the computer, but taking up SO MUCH SPACE. But, it is wicked convenient…especially with Netflix!CAN'T WAIT to see you later!!! I'm bringing Goob!
Stephen Tyler is on American Idol? He must have a good agent!
I hear ya with the treadmill! My mill is located in what is supposed to be out dining room, just the other side of the wall with the TV. AND next to our wood burning stove. Its hot and I cant see the tv…no wonder I dont like to use it 😉
Yay! You have another follower! I also noticed how disgustingly creepy Steven Tyler was. My treadmill is in a terrible location, our garage.
