Got home last night and I was thinking to myself... I'm getting on the treadmill. Jacob can lay on the couch and watch TV, while I'm walking/jogging. After pulling into the garage and locking up, Mike got home. While I was checking on the little guy, I heard him say something about going upstairs. So I took Jacob upstairs with me and while I was changing I heard him ask daddy about his shoes. "I'm going to exercise on the treadmill." Awesome!!
I called out to him that I was going to go too! He went down first and I waited - then I went. He selected one of the pre-programmed workouts, where the treadmill rises and lowers and speeds up.
When it was my turn, I wanted to do my own, changing the speed so I could jog/run for couple of minutes and walk others. "No, make it a workout!" So I got one of the pre-programmed ones too.
Honestly, I wanted to run, so even on that program, I did some sprinting when it lowered enough. Even now, I'm craving the run feeling... what's wrong with me - i don't like running. LOL! Still, I think I got a better workout before when I just did my own thing!
I am so proud of him, and I for thinking the same thing and actually taking the time to exercise! Yes Jacob watched some TV (the end of The Wizard of Oz), but he was also cheering on dad and mom!
My heart melted last night!
I asked him if he'd come back to SP, and track his food... thinking he'll see how much extra he's been eating. No, what's the point? I'll just eat better. Well, I'm happy he's walking!
