"It's not really that big of a deal if I'm fat, is it?"

I got back on the treadmill today!  Big accomplishment for me. Everyone keeps telling me that once you get used to it you learn to love it and crave it.  I SOOOOOOO hope that is true because as of now, I am neither loving it nor craving it.  In fact, I hate it.  Really and truly.  I hate that my feet get so hot that I want to rip my shoes off the moment I get off. I hate that after 15 minutes I start rationalizing "It's not really that big of a deal if I'm fat, is it?".  Seriously, after 15 minutes.  Pathetic.  But, I stick with it despite the degrading mindset. So I've been going a mile and I'm going to attempt to get on it 3 - 4 days a week. I'll stick with my 1 mile for now until hopefully my body cooperates slightly. 

It's Amish cake/bread day.  You know what that means?  I ate too much.  Not TOO bad mind you but I certainly took in extra calories with the Amish cake/bread.  It was good too.  My last 2 that I made were delicious but I over baked them so they weren't quite as good as they could have been.  This one was pistachio, pineapple & coconut and it was cooked perfectly! I'll be blogging about it tomorrow on my recipe blog.  

I figure with the extra calories with the bread, I took in about 1800 calories. Not bad considering the fairly big chunk that I ate of the cake/bread.  Still, way more than I need or care to take in, especially after vacation.  Weigh in on Wednesday.  I think I'm hoping to break even.  That would be success. I think.


  1. I would say that eventually you will look forward to MOVEMENT and exercise, not necessarily the treadmill. In fact, I'm a runner but think of the treadmill as a necessary evil that gets me through icy winters and hurricanes. I never prefer it or look forward to it. I do however very much look forward to getting in my exercise each day be it a run or a Muay Thai class.

  2. I agree. I do not like the treadmill. Mine is at home and what I have to look at is my back yard. Squirrels jumping from tree to tree and hummingbirds on the feeder. In spite of this, I still don't like it. But it is nice when the weather is bad, like now, when it's just too hot to walk the neighborhood.

    By the way, I made your Apple Baked Oatmeal a couple of days ago and it is wonderful. Husband liked it, too, but had to add a little extra sugar. I used one red delicious and one golden delicious. Next time I'm going to try it with peaches, which are in season here.
