Snow, snow, and more snow + A New resolve

I guess today's workout will be on the treadmill. LOL!
It's been a while since I worked out. I awoke today with new determination.
Tonight is Biggest Loser. I love Tuesday nights!!! I am in 2 challenges so I am hoping that this is the year I get to goal.
Yesterday's physical was fine. I'm healthy except for my weight. I had numbness in my hand and arm that was concerning me. The PA said it was most likely arthritis in my spine that is pinching a nerve. I can live with it for the time being, but it is annoying.
I'm headed for the treadmill

Daily stats:
Type: Treadmill

Route: Manual controls
Time: 40 minutes
Average heart rate: 121
Max heart rate: 139
Calories burned:287

The workout was good. I think my HRM is off a little. When I thought I was dying, it was reading 121 and then when I took a breather and slowed down a little, it would read 137. Go figure. I'll use the other one tomorrow and see what happens.

I baked bread last night. I'm not really into bread all that much except this stuff is unbelievable and well worth the 5 pts per generous slice. It's made with oatmeal and stone ground graham flour, and of course, real maple syrup. I bake it in a round stone pan. With a slice of cheese, it makes a great breakfast and my blood sugar stays stable.

    Our treadmill is in a spare bedroom.
