Determined to make use of the Machine

With the idea that I’ll be back at the job next week, I’m trying to get myself into a bit of a routine early in the mornings.
There’s been one all along, what with taking my thyroid medicine and the feeding of the cats and the reading of the comics and the eating of breakfast and quick time in the shower.

Added in should happen walking on the treadmill.
So, I read the basics of the Owner’s Manual and figured out how to enter a Log-In for me.  It’s very simple right now, Pace 1.6, Elevation 1.0 for 10 minutes.  At the end of that short period, my heart rate is up to 96 and pulse is thundering in my ears, and my thighs are saying Ee-Nuff.

I gotta remember that I started gaining weight in 1992, so it ain’t gonna come off in the first week with a fancy machine in the house.

My driver’s license needs to be re-newed in June, and I want to look good for the picture.  Losing my third chin would be a fine beginning.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Friend Micheal brought my exercise bike downstairs on Sunday and it took until this morning to get on it. I too have got to establish a routine to include this bay into my life!

    Your heart rate was up to 96??? ROFL!

    When, in my early fifties, I began using the treadmill under the supervisory eye of a lithe young lady at the gym, my heart rate went up into the 160s! She said it was fine, and it must have been cos I didn’t drop dead, and over time it came down. LOL!

    Right now, I have a sprained ankle, so the only machine I use is the iGallop, which is fun, and does in fact cause me to break a sweat.

    BTW, I’m on thyroxine, too.
