A wise investment?

Hey guys. How are you all doing?

So I wasn't sure I'd be able to blog in a while because I am laptop-less. I have one poorly computer. Not ideal. So it's gone in for repair and some much needed TLC! With a nice £35 bill for a total reinstallation. Again, not ideal.

However, taking advantage of my dad's computer (he won't mind he's at work!) I thought I'd share with you my latest idea for keeping my fitness on track.

As the weeks are drawing nearer to the end of my uni break I am starting to get a little panicky that my new found fitness will go out of the window and I'll go back to feeling unfit and crappy. Why is it that time goes by so so fast when you want it to go slowly, but when you're wishing time away it drags?! Typical.

Sadly, despite digging in my heels, I've reluctantly had to accept that I won't made a shred of difference and sure enough the weeks will continue to fly by, regardless of my digging! So, with this realisation I've come to the conclusion that I need to buy...

...a treadmill! Ok, so need is perhaps a bit strong. I mean, I have considered taking up jogging around the streets. But somehow I don't think that'll work for me. My new uni house this year is pretty much smack bang in the middle of the city and the nearest park is over 2 miles away. I think. Want, or desire, is probably a little more realistic though.

But, the price tag is enough to put anyone off, with a decent one being around £300. I definitely wouldn't be able to afford more than that! Then there's the model...what makes a good treadmill?! I've been reading a few customer reviews to gain an idea but it's still pretty tricky. I know that I'd require a fold down or fold away version- for reasons of space and also transporting it to my new house!

I mean, would I use it? I'd have to, right? Would it be worth it? If I kept my fitness up then, too right! I'd love to hear from anyone that has a treadmill or knows of a good make that would be affordable to me? Best place to buy from? At the moment Argos is looking like my best option...?

Still debating over whether I can afford it...hmmm. I'll have a long hard think whilst at Boot Camp tonight. Love that class...can't wait :)

Have a great day everyone!
