I don't dislike exercising, but I don't enjoy it. It is a lame chore that I have trouble fitting into my busy schedule. You can see how this is detrimental to my weight loss.
On the flip side, something that is detrimental to my general life productivity is that I love the internet entirely too much. (hello livejournal!)
I finally set up my surf shelf and got a little laptop to go with it (because my monster one doesn't fit on it, and I don't want to lug it to North Carolina just so I can work on my writing assignments).
I've had this arrangement for a day, and I can already tell it is going to be great. I've gotten substantially more time in on the elliptical when I can read emails and browse the web at the same time. If I can't break my addiction to the web, at least I am finally making it work for me.
There went another 25 calories just while I was typing this post. Brilliance!
