I Am One Spoiled Girl

Life is just better after 10 minutes of cardio.

So, the countdown for our new treadmill (a/k/a Nordi) is over. My husband surprised me when I got home with it already set up in the spare room! It is better than I remember it in the store. I plan on doing a full review of the treadmill after I get a few miles on it, but as of right now, I am in love!

Even though I only spent 10 minutes on the treadmill, I did spend a good majority of my night in our new treadmill room. I put my yoga mat in there so I could stretch, do yoga, and have a comfy place to gaze lovingly at our new treadmill while also reading magazines.

I must say, if there was ever a good time to purchase a treadmill, now is the time to do it. It's mid March and we got hammered with snow. My legs have been itching for some action, and with this new treadmill, I can get my workout done, while staying out of the harsh weather outside!

It was really nice to watch the snow fall through the window as I walked on the treadmill. The snow isn't the only thing I can watch, though. My husband also made a laptop shelf for me so I can watch Hulu and Netflix while I use the treadmill. I am one spoiled girl, alright!

After my 10 minutes of cardio (I'm trying to break Nordi in slowly) my husband and I got to work on dinner. He made some amazing grilled chicken and I made corn and side salads to go with it.

Yesterday was day two of staying within my calorie range. I am feeling the spark again! Motivated to keep this up and put my new treadmill to use!

What makes you motivated to stay on track?
I've got a 5K race in May, and a lot of plans for the future!


  1. You are one lucky girl! I wanted to buy a treadmill too, but instead bought a gym membership. I love reading your blog, girlie. Keep up the good work!

  2. Congrats on the treadmill, what a sweet set up! We used to have one but we just hung clothes on it. HA! My current motivation is to lose weight before I go on a work trip to New Orleans in May. I won't be able to lose a whole bunch but enough so that I'm fiting better into some of my warm weather clothes. Keep up the great work!

  3. Your husband is so supportive, that is awesome. I wish mine was!!
    Congrats on the treadmill, it looks sweet. Looking forward for your review. Keep up the good work with staying in your calorie range. You are doing SUPER!!

  4. Holy Guacamole! LURVE the laptop shelf! Great idea!!! Right now we just prop ours over the digital display. Going back through your archives and LOVING you blog. Wish I found you sooner. Love your blogging style as it reminds me of well- ME! Haha
