Running Towards Technology..
I wanted to share what has really helped me with my exercising the last few weeks. When on the treadmill, I tend to become very bored, very easily, VERY fast.. lol I have to be watching something! However, because treadmills tend to be noisy, I was finding that the TV volume was up way tooooo loud..therefore I was disrupting my entire household lol My husband gave me an extra laptop to use exclusively for the treadmill. I am telling you.. this is the best thing ever!!! I plug my earphones into the laptop and turn a movie on or watch tv shows online..this is an incredible distraction to the huffing, puffing, and PAIN of exercise. THIS WORKS FOR ME lol :)

A little about me...
It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)
In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.
I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.
There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.
So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
