I was given a treadmill from a friend who was moving. The back legs are broken and won’t lock. So I have been only been able to walk uphill because it is constantly on an incline. When he was here he fiddled with it and fixed it. Yayyyyyy!!! When I tried today it wouldn’t work and I finally got it. Not sure how I did it. So I am scared to fold it up and unlock it.
My first big goal was to do 5 km in an hour. Normally takes me 1 1/2 or 1 hour and 20 if I am booking it when walking outside. On my first try today I did 5 km in 1 hour and 2 minutes. TWO MINUTES OVER. Sooooooo close to my goal on the first try. I was walking but with short (really short but fairly often) bursts of jogging…..thrown in. When I saw how close I was getting I tried so hard to push it, but I was just too drained. So happy that I was almost able to make my goal on the first day. Burnt 329 calories. Then I made a pot of homemade soup for supper and logged all the ingredients in my app to figure out the calorie count. Pain in the ass doing that and measuring food out for everything I eat but I am liking tracking my intake.
My one friend always accuses me of not eating enough calories to help my metabolism work (not including when I eat Lays or fast food) but apparently when I am eating healthy, I really don’t and definitely don’t when my son isn’t here. Another friend told me to use a BMR calculator to figure out what my calorie intake should be. The number I got was 1770.05, that sounds crazy high to me though??? Not sure.
Anyways I count today as a win!
