Hey Miz! I don’t think I have seen you answer this before so I thought I would ask (with Christmas coming and all I’m making my list): will a nonmotorized treadmill work to help me lose weight or is it all a scam? They are so much less expensive and smaller than motorized treadmills but I wasn’t sure they would work. THANKS!
Ren Man? Is that you?!
With a little bit of fear (& a lotta hope that Im correct in my assumption he doesnt read this) I shall share with you a short story.
Once upon a time Miz had a dear friend who shed close to 100 pounds. Said friend (you out there?) lost all the weight using a non-motorized treadmill.
Flash forward a decade or so and Ren Man, remembering the story, decided he wanted to lose a few el bees & purchased a relatively inexpensive nonmotorized treadmill.
He lost nary a pound.
Why you ask? He never used it.
There’s your answer, emailer.
If you use the nonmotorized treadmill regularly (something like this is what we’re referring to if you’re unclear) it will absolutely positively work.
If it isnt something you’ll enjoy doing OR you get said ‘mill and shove it immediately under the bed to gather dust (sorry, R.M.) I promise you that you wont lose an inch.
Bottom line (as I receive this question with regards to whether swimming is a ‘good enough’ workout, too): if you will DO IT then it will work. ’nuff said.
MizFit, I am curious. The holidays are coming and I wondered what you give people? are you one of those who always give the gift of healthy stuff? what is your favorite gift to give?
I was excited to receive this email because I immediately decided I’d take full advantage & use it for an IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS post of favorite holiday gift items.
First, however, I will answer the question. I try never, ever to give the gift of anything healthy.
*Occasionally* I’ve had lapses in judgment (as evidenced here) or friends/family will request certain exercise related treats, but beyond that I like to think Im a pretty damn FUN gift bestower.
This year, should you be a MizFit loved one, you will receive a framed poem written all about & for you.
Times are tight here, People, but the humor and silliness flows
like wine freely.
Now to the fun stuff.
The If I had unlimited funds Id part of our post:
Send all of you some of these.
Make all the bloggers with pets & kids one of these for the wall (Id send the bullmastiff to convince em they need to do pets).
I’d get this for any of my Bumbling Band Peeps who are also tribe members.
This for *anyone* who will step up and admit that they, like I do, indulge.
A gift certificate to here for the Project Runway loving young girl in all of us (even you guys!)
This stunning waste of money (to me anyway) to every child I encounter because there has to be SOMETHING Im missing here (do people really buy this?!).
This to everyone who feels stuck with regards to making a big decision in his life.
A pair of these to all of us so we could refind our inner Vans/Keds doodler on’er (or was that just me? anyone else do that in high school?).
There you go. A serious and a not so.
A yes get get the treadmill it will work if you use it & a this is so what Id buy if I had lottsa money.
