I'm actually kind of excited about it because I don't have a lot of other options. We've debated joining a gym but financially aren't there right now. Our new house is great in a lot of ways, but we can't take off for a walk straight from our house because we live on a highway. The kids and I are excited and trying to get healthier. They even want to buy weights!
As I was thinking about the treadmill, I realized my life has kind of been like being on a treadmill these last few months, maybe even years. The machine keeps going and I keep walking, but I get more and more tired. I want to make changes and improve my quality of life, as well as my family's, but no matter what I do I don't seem to get anywhere. I push various buttons and try new things but not much of a difference is made. The machine goes up and down, but I'm still in the same place. I can see a brighter future ahead, but it always seems just out of reach.
Deep down I know that I'm going to get there and that it just takes time. I know I will get off of this treadmill and my endurance will be better from all of the cardio I've done. I'm just praying I get off of it sooner rather than later.
Do you ever feel like you are on a treadmill and can't get off?
