rain, sweat, tears, kids, treadmill, WHAT.....

I am a mom, I get puke on, pick at, yell at, peed on, even sometimes walked on, but thats ok because its the job as a mom I signed up for. I spend my day running after a almost 3 year old and 4 month old. ok so the 4 month old doesn't run, but you get the picture I am a mom. By the time my husband comes up I am so read for mommy time, the time where mommy can relax and enjoy well mommy. Right now my mommy is also kid time, and hubby time, there is no mommy time! Yes there is a lock on the bathroom door, but the kid-o still gets in, and yes I could go outside, but hello its cold! Mommy needs this time!!!!! Mommy ( I ) am trying to become healthier, which involves eating right, and daily exercising. I have done tons of thinking and I know that if I had a treadmill, I would be able to get healthier for not only myself, but for my kids as well.
 Being overweight stinks! I do not like getting tried after a little running around chancing my kids. I want to be able to run after them, and I mean RUN! Just yesterday my little boy asked me to chase him, and how sad is it when mommy can not chase him far. I am aware that I am overweight, I know it, I let myself go. I did this to myself. I know that a treadmill will not change myself unless I am willing to make the right changes! So I want you to know I already have started those changes, I am now watching what I eat. I had no clue how bad I ate! Did you know just because it says fat free does not mean it is good for you??? Well I always thought it did! I have changed my cooking for my whole family. My husband and I take time to workout with the Wii every other night. Its so much fun, and now my littlest is joining in with us. I am training for a 5k in July and this treadmill would be perfect for it!  These are the little things I am doing now to change my life. I know that know that it is not a diet, but a lifestyle change. That is also how I feel about getting fit, I know it is a lifestyle change. I want to be able to look back and say I did this I made the choices now to make a new change!
So back to why I want and need a treadmill it is as simple as this, a mom is the glue of a family. We all know this to be true, even if we are not a mom, we have a mom and can remember what all she has and is doing for us. If the I as a mother is making the choice now to be healthy, it will stick! I know that if I had this wonderful treadmill it would be used, and I do not mean as a clothes dryer, but as a treadmill! I can promise you that I will use this treadmill 5 to 6 times a week! I am willing to vlog about it, well I would vlog about it no matter what! I can promise you that this treadmill would help this mommy with the much needed mommy time, and honestly can you think of a better mommy time then working out.
