No More Excuses

We bit the bullet and bought a treadmill this weekend.  We drove out to my coworkers place as she was kind enough to sell us hers (according to her husband it had about 3 minutes use on it)... I didn't want to shell out a bunch of money on a brand new one because who knows if we will even like it?  This way we spent a little bit of money on a brand I was able to research and if we eventually need to buy another one then at least we will be making a conscious investment. 
At this point all I care about is that it has a place for my water bottle and my iPad so I can watch Netflix.  I am going to need to be entertained!

I haven't actually tested it out more than a few minutes because as soon as we got the treadmill home I had to clean out our spare room so we had somewhere to put it.  I spent the next 3 hours sorting through boxes and bags of stuff organizing between storage in our crawl space, the dump, recycling, and sell/give away.  I will admit it felt awesome to purge everything but I was exhausted by the time I was done. 
I am not exactly sure how to start so I think I am going to follow this learn to run schedule and see how I do:

Any suggestions or other recommendations for treadmill programs?  How do you fit at home exercise into your schedule?
Linking up with these lovely ladies:


  1. Good luck!! I started running last March and it was the best thing ever! I couldn't run to the end of my driveway when I started, so now that I can run 3 miles on the reg every other day is huge. I used the c25k program which is similar to what you posted!

  2. The plan you have looks great, you might even start with less running depending on where you are starting from. You can also adjust the speeds to make it fit what you like. I think with netflix it will become your next best friend!

  3. That plan looks great!! I started walking/running on the treadmill! Its the only time I let myself watch Friends on Netflix, so if I want to watch Friends then I have to go workout! Works wonderful for me!
