I borrowed an idea from Yasmin, a fellow blogger. I read in her blog about how she adjusted the incline level on the treadmill to 1.0 rather than 0.0. Unless it is my mind playing tricks on me, I didn't feel as much stress on my knees and hips. I was also able to run faster than I usually do on the machine. Thanks Yasmin for the suggestion!
I am trying something new on the weight loss front. I am cutting out sweets. Pop, candy, cake, donuts....GONE. These items don't really go hand and hand with my weight loss journey but I always allowed points for them. I am starting this venture today. I tried to make yesterday day one, but someone at work handed me a plate with a slice of cake on it. I could not say no. I was like I was an alcoholic being handed a drink. I hope by getting off of the junk, saying no will be easier to do.
It is another fun inside day in Minnesota. Wind chill is close to -40 degrees today. Argh. Monday I was outside in just a sweatshirt as it was pushing 50 degrees...above zero. Today there are schools that are closed because of the temperature. WHY DO I LIVE HERE!?!?!?!?!
