The treadmill is downstairs. It is more or less like we have a big piece of exercise equipment in our livingroom instead of a couch. I figure this is ok. It will remind us to not sit around. I know some people wouldn't put a treadmill in the main room of their house, but as you all already probably know, we don't put decorating as a high priority. We love things that look cool, but I say we value function over design. I also don't mind a little clutter. I don't love that there is a giant treadmill taking up a good chunk of space, but at the same time it was space that was previously just open. Not space we used. It just looks kind of ugly now. I figure oh well, something we will have to deal with when we sell the place, until then, it works for us.
Starting tomorrow I am back on the weight loss plan. I have been on hiatus for a couple months and am back to square one. Now that i am home, I have run out of excuses. I have time to cook healthy meals and go to the store on a regular basis. I have time to work out. I now don't even have to go anywhere. I had been pretty ok with the status quo, then I was watching Discovery Health Channel's National Body Challenge and one of the contestants weighed 2 pounds less than me. So i have set my goals, we will see what happens. I will post my weights, after I actually lose a bit. I don't think that there needs to be a big weight secrecy. I will openly share my weight. I figure it helps keep other people in perspective. It does for me when I hear how much other people weigh. Especially when I think I am thinner than they are and then i find out I have 20 pounds on them. Yikes!
