  1. You do way better at steps than me. I’d have trouble getting on the treadmill too, they’re boring.
    The arm sculpting challenge looks tough. I could do it, I think, as long as the weights weren’t too heavy.

    • My treadmill is in my bedroom and the tv in there went out, (don’t want to buy another one until we move) so that’s the main problem with me not using it. I could listen to an audiobook but then I’d just be staring at a wall. I like listening to audiobooks when I’m driving, cleaning, cooking etc., when my eyes have something to do other than stare at something.

  2. Your step count is always good, Vicki! Kaiyo is such a cutie! Have a good week. I will be away from blogging for a few days.

  3. Looks like you have a nice set of goals! Have a great week Vicki!

  4. I don’t think I would like to walk on a treadmill, I think it would be too boring. I like to walk with my camera and music, I’m always looking at things. I really enjoy walking though sometimes I have to motivate myself.
    Have a wonderful day.

  5. The only time I do well on a treadmill is when I have a way to watch something. Sometimes that can be a physical book to read, if the print is large enough. I used a computer tablet for a while and streamed video off the internet.

    • I love watching tv while I walk on my treadmill too, but the one in my bedroom where it is messed up and I don’t want to buy another one until we move.
