OK, I've already shared this with some of you guys, so it may be old news, but I wanted to share it with those that had NOT heard of "The Plan."
First of all, I read somewhere that the best workout is one that is split up throughout the day so that it can keep your metabolic rate high enough so you could burn calories all day. So, I decided that I would do the same. I had big plans and decided I was splitting my work out into three 20 minute walks in the morning, noon and evening. So, first thing in the morning, I would get up and walk over to Sonic for a breakfast burrito, which was about a 20 minute walk. Then around noon, I'd walk over to BK and get a hamburger and that was another 20 minute walk. Then in the evening, I'd walk over to Taco Bell for a couple of tacos and that was another 20 minute walk. It was quite disconcerting to find out that I was NOT losing weight!
OK, J/K! My idea of a joke for a message board. But I needed to give you some background information before I told you what happened and all I can say is, be glad I didn't forget the point of the story! That's a totally different post!
So anyway, what I've REALLY been doing is going to the weight room on the complex and using the treadmill. I couldn't help noticing that it was ALWAYS available and whenever other folks were in there, they'd give me a look like I was dressed funny. So I stopped going in my PJs but that didn't stop the looks. Anyway, I normally go in the mornings and in the evenings and spend 20 minutes strolling on the treadmill between the two workouts. J/K! It's more like 15/5! J/K again! Anyway, today I decided to RUN over there at lunch time and do another 20 minutes. I came to my senses before I started running, but I still managed to get over there in record time to find no one on the treadmill again. Gotta love that! So, I'm strolling along and had been on the treadmill for about 5 minutes, barely breaking a sweat might I add, when the treadmill kind of jumped and jerked and the thing started going really fast! All I can say is that thank heavens I was already clinging to the sidebars for dear life otherwise I could have had quite a tumble! I think I may have figured out why I was getting the funny looks. What do you think? I can't believe NO ONE told me! Cause now I REALLY don't think that they were looking at me funny cause of the PJs!
And I'd love to tell you what happened last night when I went to check the mail in the dark because it's almost as funny, but since it happened to me and I think that it's REALLY embarrassing, I think I won't!
