Dear goodness…it is here.
It arrived early this week and a huge box has been sitting in my living room ever since.
My treadmill has arrived.
I ordered it two weeks ago because I was not going to the gym. I belong to an amazing gym, but I was really having a lot of trouble justifying spending my afternoons in the gym, while Lincoln was in the gym daycare. That is time I could be spending with my son.
I love him too much to have him in daycare all day, just so that I can get off work, drive 20 minutes, put him in another daycare, workout, pick him up and drive another 20 minutes, just so that I can get home in time to get him ready for bed.
It ended up giving me about an hour a day with my kid or letting him stay up later so that I could be with him.
Neither of these options worked for me, so I did the only logical thing. I stopped going to the gym.
Several months ago.
This was absolutely the best decision for me and Lincoln, but not a super great decision for my waistline.
I lost all of my baby weight pretty quickly, but I have some extra pre-baby weight that needs to disappear.
But now that I have stopped going to the gym I have gained a couple pounds on top of that.
Summer is here, I need to do something about this.
This way I can get my lazy booty on the treadmill after Lincoln has gone to bed. It works great for both of us. I can get a workout and still spend all the time with my son that we both need and love.
I just hope I can do it.
It is going to be pretty tough, I am very tired at the end of the day and it is certainly going to take some will-power to get on that machine.
But I can do it.
I am hoping to find some people on the same mission. Maybe we can help motivate each other. You in???
My plan is to give Operation Slim Down updates every weekend.
***By the way, my treadmill is going to stay in the box until the end of the month. I am moving and I think that this will just be easier. But after that…it is on 🙂
