Mr.B wants to loose some weight and since it's been dark for hours by the time he gets home (dark arrives between 4:30 & 5:00 up here during the winter months), he bought himself a treadmill. He's been gently encouraging me to also use it.
This morning I decided that since I've began my garden planning, I should increase my physical activity otherwise, when gardening season arrives my mussels will be screaming at me. While in my pj's ... 5 minutes @ 1.5mph, no incline; 20 minutes @ 2.7 mph, 6% grade incline; 5 minutes @ 1.5 mph, no incline. Average heart rate - 100 beats per minute; 197 calories burned; 30 of the most BORING minutes of my life.
Really? Only 197 calories burned? I suffered through a 1/2 hour of complete & total YAWN for only 197 calories? I'd better get in the shower before I raid my secret stash of chocolate.
