Guess what I got?

A treadmill. Andrew came home from work yesterday and surprised me with it. I was elated. Last night I did my first run in the comfort of my own home while watching America's Next Top Model, and it was awesome.
Aside from the moment where I thought I was going to pass out so I closed my eyes and almost died falling off said treadmill. But I finished it - 3 minutes running, 1 minute walking, repeat 7 times, run 2 minutes. And sweat out at least my body weight. Seriously, how have I not lost weight yet? I'm sweating more than I thought was humanly possible. I'm still quite sore and my body still isn't used to this yet. But I'm not giving up.
This morning I did my 30 minute walk while Eva entertained herself throwing her sippy cup behind me on the track thing and laughing as it flew back at her. I guess now that I own a treadmill, I can be all athletic and everything. Another box checked off on things I thought would never happen in my life. Before you know it, I'll be running a marathon. Okay, actually, that will never happen. But at least I am a proud treadmill owner.

Yeah for owning your first will LOVE it! I still wished we had ours (sadly we sold it when we moved from Indy) it is THE best thing ever!! You can run in the morning, or when kids are napping, or when kids want to watch a disney movie....anytime!!!
