#JusJoJan the 29th/23 – The treadmill


Our prompt word for January 29th is “exercise.” Thanks so much, Wendy, for the energetic prompt!

I try to exercise every day.

Okay, maybe try is a big word.

Maybe it’s more like I plan to exercise every day.

Okay, okay, okay. I think about exercising every day.

During the height of the pandemic, when Alex wasn’t going to school and the library was closed so Chris, my other son, stopped going out once a week, I bought a treadmill.

Are there months when it doesn’t even get used? Sure.

I still try to go out for walks when it’s not too snowy or icy or cold or hot and humid.

But does it get used when those conditions are not the case?

I used it a whole three times last week. And once so far this week.

I need to try harder.

  5. I don’t have a physical exercise regimen. I have 11 basement stairs, which I ascend and descend multiple times a day. I walk three senior dogs daily, and I walk a little more without them three days a week. ‘Tis enough. ‘Twill serve. haha


  6. If you’re not using your treadmill as a clothes rack, you’re good in my book, Linda.

  8. I’m loving my treadmill. My body, not so much. I’m still only on program number 2.


  9. Audio books are the trick for passing time on the treadmill for me!
