This Christmas, I asked Santa for a treadmill. After talking with my Marathon-running hubby, we decided to make the plunge for a machine that would enable him to train for any races he might run and me to finally tackle my lack of exercise. After researching, we ended up with a new machine from Amazon. Despite a plethora of delivery flubs (and the very next day our massive one-year-old television breaking), the treadmill arrived and was pretty simple to assemble. I jumped on and ran one mile. Knowing full well that the longest journey begins with a single step.
And so, strangely, I made this a priority all week. Whether it was during the day while the boys played or heading there at night when I normally would spend my time on the computer, I just did it. I instagrammed a few of the nights, watched Parenthood once or twice, and found tunes on YouTube to jam to (Pentatonix, anyone?) and after six days, I realized something. I had done intentional physical activity six days in a row. Was that even possible for me? I guess so.
And so begins the journey of a lifetime and to life-long health. Follow us on #thepeanutsgetslim on social media. I promise to update weekly or so. Eventually, we’ll get to the weight part of it 😉
Merry Christmas to me!
