I have been . Running /walking on the treadmill off and on for about a month. More off than on and my jog looks more like creeping along.
BUT!!!! I am moving.
After my first time in my favorite sundress this year, I noticed my bat wings.
You know what I am talking about. That pocket of fat that swings under your arm when you wave? Yep, that one. It is like waving twice. Two for the price of one.
My work out space is in the garage. No heat or AC. Iccan deal with the heat in the summer but not the cold. My space has been neglected for months.
I got depressed and discouraged when I saw the that flap of flesh waving at me. I wanted to hide and wear long sleeves all summer.
Well, down here that isn't going to happen. The summer lasts to long. About 6-8 months of blistering hot weather. By the end of the heat, even my blinding white legs will be tan. I am not wearing a jacket all summer.
I am not going to put up with the bat flaps either.
Today, I went back to the garage. The first p90x video in the Dvd player. Tony Horton offering words of encouragement.
I currently struggle with.....
Instead of my favorite words "I can't"
Then I see a Link a friend posted on Facebook. I think this is not a coincidence.
I did the best I could with the push ups. Now it is time to hit the treadmill. One mile, even withjjogging, will take me about 25 minutes. Maybe longer but I am moving.
As long as I don't give up, the bat flaps won't win
Ps. My little room got used last night for a little fun. The floggers came out. He used them heavy and hard. I jumped and flinched with every strike but it felt like heaven.
Love my little space. Useful for so many things.
