Gone missing

With four kids in the house (and one kitten) things can occasionally go missing. I am somewhat used to it. But the other day when I hopped on the treadmill I was surprised to see the magnetic "key" was missing. I totally get that a magnet, tied to a long string, is a temptation any kid (or kitten) would have a hard time ignoring. But without it, my treadmill stays put.

Now most days I am MORE than willing to let a decent excuse like not being able to turn ON the treadmill stop me from running. But this day I had already laced up my shoes, put the kids down for a nap, and I was determined. So after looking up and down all over the house to no avail, I did what any desperate runner would do....grabbed a bag of chips.

And taped the chip clip - which happens to have a magnet on the back - to my treadmill.

Now that is determination! I probably would have sat down, propped my feet up, and had a few of those chips...then I would glance down, see my baby belly, and then of course get on the treadmill.

Way to go Shana! I love it. Who says chips can't help you stay in shape. :)
