Our new treadmill and yes I will use it!! plus detox update
After walking for what seemed miles on holiday and now starting our 10 day detox we wanted to keep up the momentum and bought ourselves a second hand treadmill. I've got to admit that I will probably be using this the most, I tend to take the dogs out each day for their daily walk, but with quite a heavy workload I find it hard to do anything more, hence the treadmill.
I wanted it placed somewhere that it could be used quickly to avoid getting unmotivated thinking that I would have to spend time setting it up before using it and this was one excuse that I wanted to avoid. The plan is to use this every 1-2 days gradually building myself up in time, speed and incline, only time will tell. This is also a foldable treadmill so it's perfect for what we need. Hubbie and our teenage runners have started using it too and it's brought out the competitive side of the family.
So what did we buy, we bought the York Aspire Treadmill with Pro Fitness Floor Mat, it is so easy to use and alternate between different speed and incline settings. Love checking my pulse too to see how I'm doing as well as seeing how many calories I'm burning. Where as the boys are more concerned about how far they have done, again competitive side rearing it's head again.
The York Aspire is a quality treadmill packed with features that will suit a beginner or more experienced runner equally well. When not in use the treadmill folds up so you can store it out of the way. It has an adjustable elevation of 0-12%, and 15 incline levels.

So we are now on Day 4 and we are still going well, neither hubbie or I have found ourselves hungry which is a massive help. We had a little dip teatime on Day 2 were we both felt a nauseous but we were expecting that as theauthor mentions about the toxins from your body leaving. We've had fun with the dry brushing too. The recipes are going down well, a couple we're ok but we're really sticking to it to. My favorite recipes so far have to be ...
Blueberry Nut Millet
Sweet Potato Salad
(and no it's not only soup on the dinner menu lol)
