Oh no, I may have broken my treadmill, I know some of you are gasping and some are cheering. Most of us treadmill users use it not because it is fun but it is a great workout when you can do circuits, running in the winter, use weights, etc. We make the best of our minimal options in the dead of winter.
Well tonight I was running, yes finally running and it stopped on me after 15 minutes. It appeared to have overheated. I let it cool down and then went for another 10 and it stopped again and the circuit was tripped. Now after letting it cool off the treadmill itself won't budge - the power is on but no motion :(....
I hope I don't have to replace it as I don't have the money but I may have to. I CANNOT live without one. I may be looking for suggestions from my fellow bloggers on models, etc.
I managed to get an hour workout in and feel great today. My weight is unchanged but I expect that after my indulges over the holidays. I only gained a few pounds which doesn't worry me but I know I screwed up my metabolism > this will take a while to get revved back up. I'm not discouraged, I know the routine and I am committed. Feel better now that the eating is back in check, no wine and moving. Not sure why I indulged but I guess I am human, when in a crowd and in a special setting I wanted to be able to eat some of the not so healthy yet yummy foods and have drinks.... I am human. The key is getting back on track which I believe I am...
So say a prayer for my treadmill please, the ex will look at it tomorrow and I may have to get a major tune up on it .... or bury it.
