5 Awesome Things About a Home Treadmill

I’m so glad I decided to get a treadmill instead of another couch, as its proven it’s worth in this excessive heat wave we are having. I have no excuse not to run and I’ve been journaling my journey over on Instagram: @kate_nesi if you’re interested in following along.

Last week, I was really really really tired. Not like my mind needed rest or eyes wanted to close, but my body didn’t have an ounce of energy in it. I did get my blood work results back and found something that maybe be a large cause of my fatigue and how I’ve been feeling, other than my energetic little ones.

There’s a lot to be thankful for at this Thanksgiving time, but overall when my body just isn’t right the rest of my life is out of order as well. So, what I’m most thankful for this year is repairing my injuries using The Stick!

The Stick saved me from forever having to deal with peroneal tendinitis. It’s been a long year this year, with over six months of pain and issues, and going to doctor after doctor without getting an answer or a final fix.
