My word for January is
- my body more -
♡ Declutter -
my desk, home and life.
De-cluttering will be a moving challenge in itself and I'm on it already.
I'm feeling all my clothes are tighter since I eased off running (due to the sweltering heat) and we had a 2.5 week break from dragon boat paddling.
Today, I was completely moved by spectacular customer service from Workout World - my pre-owned treadmill I purchased in my old Sydney neighbourhood April 2010 . There was no manual , though I could work out enough settings to walk and run on it.
I've searched a few times , tried placing an ad and come up with nothing!
The last week I've been experimenting with run and walk intervals, due to the heat , joint pain and possibly boredom . Boredom .
I decided to search again so I could use the Custom program settings.
More is less - intervals trick the body into working harder , then you get a rest.
I hope they are right.
Then I emailed -Workout World and in less than 24hrs - Adam had emailed me an entire 30 page manual, it wasn't the computer/terminal user manual so I emailed him back and asked for MORE information !
More ...arrived in less than a few hours .
I am in treadmill paradise with the 11 page Operating computer manual. My custom settings are installed (and my right hip hurts. I think I overdid it.)
Outstanding customer service when it is an old '2009' treadmill and I wasn't the original owner. Mind you I am lusting over a new model.
I'm less impressed with Hardly Normal's customer service and we have spent a lot of $$$ there recently. I want a foot pod for my Garmin watch.
Anyway - My January Goals -
- Put together at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days. Accumulate my 30 minutes (or more) throughout the day by combining a few shorter sessions of activity of around 10 to 15 minutes each.
- 30 day Challenge with situps, pushups,planks etc for core strength and arms.
- De-clutter (we have already half filled a dump-truck !
Have you got a word for 2015 ?
