30 x 5 Tool & Another Video to Inspire You

OK, 30 x 5'ers, in the "home stretch" (pun!) of the carnival this week, if you are having trouble sticking to your commitment to move, I want you to remember this video. Picture me coming to your home and lifting you onto a treadmill like they are this cat. You will hear my voice saying, "Come on ... Just walk!! Just walk!! What's wrong? Try it again!" Hysterical laughter, if that helps, can be part of the picture, too. I SO enjoyed this cat's attitude. He would rather roll onto his head and keep his legs limp than move. What a great picture of the way we often feel--especially Sundays!

Poor kitty being mistreatd so!! He can come to my house - we don't have any of those torture devices.

Oh wait - I don't like cats!

That is hilarious!

Jenny said...

aww poor kitty, he is just not in the mood for walking.

ok i can't get your little calorie burner thing to work...the one on my treadmill does not allow me to input weight which changes the calorie burn...i was just thinking this morning i need to find one of those things...and there you have it for me but it won't work LOL...

love love love my treadmill.

that cat is so funny!! And that is exactly how I feel today! I haven't exercised in 3 weeks and have to get back into it starting tomorrow!! yuck!!

and btw, did you have to put a space on there to input our WEIGHT?!!!

Susanne said...

Hahahahaha. How do you find this stuff? That is so what I feel like about treadmills. Me and that kitty, we are one!

BTW, the calories burned thingy won't work for me. :v(

I did get up at the crack of dawn and jog, against all odds. Now I get to gloat as I snarf down those Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.

Hugs,

IT'S THE ME OF CATS!!!!

LOL! - Thanks for posting that Linda, that was too funny!

I hope you have been well :)

this cat shares my feeling when it comes to treadmills... they're great on rainy days though. :) too cute! thanks for sharing!

Dita said...

Linda...if you could lift me up like that and get me on the treadmill then BOTH of our work would be long done. I would be better imagining you AND a KOMATSU frontloader getting me on the treadmill.

I'm still in but cursing it every second!

Thanks for the motivation, though. That was hysterical!

Ha! That's a PURRFECT picture of me lately! Sorry, that was really uncalled for I know.
Does moving my skinny little fingers all over this keyboard count???

The cat is too funny....and I love your blog design just like it is now.
Hope you will stop by my blog again soon.
I am going to have a "card box" giveaway every month. This drawing will be the last day of April.
Every comment you leave throughout the month will enter your name in the drawing, so if you visit several times and leave several comments, you will have a better chance to win. This NEW blogger was so touched by all the comments I got on the Blog Party, that I decided to make this a monthly GIFT...
Also, if you link to my blog telling about the monthly giveaway, you will have your name entered 10 extra times...How is that for an incentive?
I was so blown away by all the responses that I wanted to email each person personally, but TIME... just has not permitted..but I did love reading all of them..I am continuing to introduce my family members and then there will be some fun blogs coming up from Disney World in May. I am so thankful for all my new friends.

Thanks for the video. It was so funny! My cat likes to lay on the treadmill while it's off, but I'd like to see what he does when I turn it on. I might do a little experiment just for fun. =)
