Best laid plans…

I was doing so well with my treadmill.  I was running more and more and then April happened and I had all of my wisdom teeth removed.  So I stopped.  Yeah, how was that a good idea?

I wasn’t up to speed by the time Littlefoot triathlon came along.  After the race I was swamped with photo editing (no time for the treadmill) and then traveling back to DC…twice.

So, that’s definitely two paragraphs worth of bad excuses.  Not surprisingly, the lack of time on my treadmill equaled a bad relationship with my scale.  So, I decided to up my walking to work.  (I’m also listening to the Elegance of the Hedgehog while I walk, that is definitely an incentive to lace up my walking shoes).

I know, via the bodybugg, that I get so much more bang for my buck when I move first thing in the mornings, so I have been taking advantage of Dan’s new double swim practice schedule (his wake up call is at 5:40 am! Ouch!) and my desire to stay up to date on The Real Housewives series to get reacquainted with my treadmill.red pepper pasta-0016
 
Yes, I have to be entertained and completely distracted when I work out.  Otherwise I get bored.

I’m starting small and just walking.  But I am enjoying it and I am noticing a higher calorie burn on the days I’ve walked first thing.  Plus, I’ve seen the scale go back down.  YAY!

How do you get back on the wagon?
