The Black Slug
This is me. I feel like SUCH a slug right now and I hate it.
My treadmill died almost a month ago. It will turn on, but no matter what button I push, it just beeps at me. Beep, beep, beep.
Luckily, I bought the extended 3 year warranty and it's still covered.
Unfortunately, it took me over 2 weeks to actually find my paperwork. It was tucked into a random notebook that I haven't looked at in ages. I know, such organization. At least I found it!!
So then I called the warranty people and they had the new parts sent out. I waited for a week and half for the repair man to call. North Pole isn't exactly a metropolitan area. One guy does the repairs. He was scheduled to come over today, but had to cancel. He's going to try to come on Friday (before he leaves on vacation!!!) I sure hope he is able to make it.
So, I have been a month without my treadmill and I can sure feel it. I have turned into a slug. It's not just the 5 lbs that I've gained. It's the fact that I now feel so out of shape and sedentary.
The weather has been pretty nice and I really don't have any good excuses for not getting out there and actually walking in the fresh air. I just hate walking around the neighborhood with the kids. We don't have sidewalks. Nick doesn't want to ride in the stroller, because he's a big boy. He also stops at every rock and leaf that we pass and randomly darts out into the street. As soon as we get a good distance away from the house, everyone has to go to the bathroom. It's just not pleasant. That's what I have a treadmill. :)
So, hopefully I will be back on it by this weekend!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
