Treadmill Pet Peeve

by Jillian on August 25, 2011 · 5 comments

This morning, while in the middle of my interval workout, my treadmill came to a hault. Nooooo! I hate that!  I am a numbers freak and I like when things are even, so it totally screws me up. And the worst part is that I’m pretty sure my elbow just tapped the “stop” button accidentally. Shouldn’t those things have annoying messages like our computers?

“Are you sure you want to delete that?”

“Are you sure you want to stop dead in the middle of a 14 incline, 6.3 speed?”


While waiting for the incline to go down in order to start over, I contemplated just moving on to another machine. I was so mad! Instead, I just busted out the last 15 minutes at 7.5. I showed that treadmill!

When that happened to Joe one time, he punched the treadmill. I laughed. Now I know it’s not so funny.

Breakfast cheered me up. My smoothie was extra ice-creamy today. Super thick and green!

I guess it was just the right ratio of ingredients. I got lucky. There was no measuring involved, though, which means it’s unlikely it will come out like that again any time soon. But, just for future reference it included ice, almond milk, frozen banana, natural SunWarrior, chocolate PB2, spinach, chia seeds, and xanath gum.

It was also preceded by my latest obsession.

Sunbutter Adora Sprinkle Massacre

 Dip a spoon in sunflower seed butter, dip it in sprinkles, top it with a dark
chocolate Adora disk, and shovel it in your mouth. The sweet sunflower butter and bitter dark chocolate are a perfect combo.

Has the treadmill ever stopped on you? If so, do you stay on it anyway or move to another type of cardio machine?

That’s never happened to me on the treadmill, but on the elliptical. It’s annoying cause then once I restarted I was trying to add all the numbers together- grr!

Everyone is eating these Adora disks and they look so delicious! I think I’m going to have to pick some up =)

Oh, and I hate when the heart rate monitor grips are broken on any of the machines. I get really angry, haha.

I just had an adora disk with peanut butter! Never tried it with sprinkles but I may just have to try it!
