Dusting off the good ‘ole treadmill…again!

In the past few days, I have made more of a concrete effort to try to get my body moving in  my quest of losing weight. For one, I’ve been more consistent in walking Bubba, my trusty exercise buddy, around the village and in a faster pace to the point of increasing my heart rate and getting my body to sweat more than the usual. I also have started swimming again, which is really one of my all-time favorite exercises to do.

However, just when I’ve gotten the motivation to do this more regularly, the rains have started to come in! I am trying hard not to use that as an excuse to not exercise so I am dusting off my treadmill and getting back on it. I just kind of dislike this treadmill because it’s not the electric type, so it’s a bit harder to use because the belt doesn’t turn smoothly since it runs on friction alone. Plus I have to keep my hands on the side to be able to propel myself forward, unlike the electric ones which run on its own then you just keep up with it. I don’t know, however, if one type of treadmill is better than the other.

Whatever it may be, I think what is important is that I stop using it as a towel or clothes rack (which it doubles as lately hahaha!) and to just get on it to walk away some pounds.
