Get Fit Weeks 8 & 9

The last couple weeks have been super busy but I have trying to stay on my workouts even if they are short walks at high intensity. Last Wednesday I bought a new to me treadmill! The lady said she hardly used it and when they came to drop it off you could tell it wasn't used much if it was even used.

Of course it didn't take me long to plug it in and hop on. I have pretty much been on it everyday since except for two days but those were days I was super tired and working overnights. I am giving myself credit for Monday, I did try to go for a walk on the treadmill after coming home from work but I was way to tired and only lasted about 5 minutes.

I will confess Halloween has been horrible for my sweet tooth! As I eat a candy or small bag of chips all I can think about is I really shouldn't be eating this but I go ahead and it it. I know that isn't the way to get into shape but I also don't want to restrict myself of a candy here or there. For the most part I watch what I eat and portion control. I drink lots of water.

I have been using an app on my phone to track my outdoor walking but I need to see if I can add my treadmill walking into it to keep track daily.

My new treadmill is in miles per hour and miles. This threw me off the first time on as I was 30 minutes in and only at 1.6. I thought this has been a super long walk until I thought maybe it was in miles and sure enough that is what it is in. For each 1.6 miles it is about 2.5km. I love that the treadmill has incline and I have been using it to give myself a high intensity walk. Usually I walk at 2.8-3.5 miles per hour for about 30 to 45 minutes with inclines either set at a steady 2 or I up it to 5 to take on some big hills. I wish I could set my own program but changing it manually hasn't been hard. Do you have a program that you use on your treadmill?

Here are my kilometers for the last couple weeks. 

Oct 29 - 6.10km outside
Oct 30 - 3.55km outside. Inside 2.57km at 3.5mph
Oct 31 - Halloween walking.. Not sure how many km but I am sure we did about 5km. Inside 2.57
Nov 1 - 1.97km outside. Inside 3.41 in 45 minutes at 3mph
Nov 2 - 2.57km inside at 2.8mph
Nov 3 -  2.29km inside at 3mph
Nov 4 - 4.68km outside. I also walked another 2.5km without tracking it. oops.
Nov 6 - I tried and failed because I was too tired. I did 1.09km at a pace of 2.3mph
Nov 7 - I have decided to use my incline to up my walks. 2.66km in 30 minutes at 3.5mph
Nov 8 - 4.82km outside

Not too bad for the last couple of weeks. I haven't noticed much weight drop but I do notice that I am firming my legs and toning my butt and middle! Yay! My clothes are fitting much nicer.
