(no subject)

If you know me, you know that to me, "exercise" is a dirty word.

However, since I spend 10 hours a day 4 days a week in front of my work computer and umpteen hours a day 7 days a week in front of my home computer, I decided that I need to be more active.

To that end, I've taken up walking on Mom's motorized treadmill. Why don't I walk outside? One, it's too frickin' hot and humid outside. Two, no bugs to deal with. Three, I can watch my U2 Best of 1990 to 2000 DVD. There's nothing better than walking on the treadmill while the video for "Beautiful Day" plays. I'd sing along, but I don't have the breath to do both, so I mouth the words.

I can do a quarter of a mile in five minutes. Wednesday, I did fifteen minutes/three-quarters of a mile. I try to walk every couple of days. I don't think I'll have time tonight, so I'll try for 20 minutes/1 mile sometime early tomorrow morning. Soon, I'll be up to 30 minutes/1.5 miles. I won't add time after that, but I'm thinking of increasing the treadmill's incline.
