Distract me from the exercise

I'm liking the elliptical so far, but I have the problem I have with all exercise which is, even with the TV on, all I can think is "is it over yet? am I done? this is so BORING!" This is why DDR was such a win. I was having so much fun I didn't notice the exercise. I feel like my body is missing something that makes exercise more fun for other people, like I don't get ANY endorphins or something. The elliptical is also much more of a workout than it at first feels when you get on. But then I get off all sweaty and tired, which is good.

Anyway, bottom line is I'm working out, which is progress. I hope I can keep with it and improve my fitness, because it is really driving home that fact that while I have good upper body strength, my cardio and lower body is out of shape.

Of course I hope desperately to loose some of the 70+ pounds I'm overweight too, but I'm trying to focus on the fitness, since focusing on the weight will just make me sad when it doesn't actually come off.

I've also been enjoying fitocracy.com which is an RPG for fitness, though their numbers seem a bit weird (very heavily slanted towards weight lifting over cardio) and I can't find the names for some of the exercises I've enjoyed doing.

But hey, at least some progress.
