I have been gaining weight for no apparent reason. It just seemed to start creeping up on me. I started the South Beach diet, but there was always a "special occasion" that distracted me from my goal. And by the time I would get back from whatever it was, my momentum was all messed up. Then it takes weeks, nay months to get back on track. I haven't mastered that yet.
I realized the other day, if I don't keep track of time, I can literally spend hours on the computer, reading blogs and keeping up on Facebook.
I decided I needed to somehow bolt my computer onto my treadmill so I can just walk as I read my blogs.
If I just limit myself to walking every time I log onto my computer, how many miles will I walk while I blog and read?
So with three strategically placed bungee cords, I have now rigged my own tredputer.
Granted the connection is veeeeeerrrrrrryyy slow on this little laptop, but it is better than nothing. I can walk 2.5 mph and still read and type. Now I have to work for my pleasure. I have to walk rather than sit on my backside while I enjoy all of your blogs.
I have joined Sparkpeople, which is a great weight loss site and have determined to watch my calorie intake and my exercise. I need a motivation. My second son determined if he stayed on his regeim for a certain amount of weeks or months, he would get a new mountain bike. I think my goal is if I can stay on this until my Birthday, which is in December, I will get myself a faster laptop, how does that sound?
I hope you all have a nice day, and wish me luck on my plan.
