What I do when I strap myself to an elliptical for a ridiculous amount of time:
A. Magazine (favorites include Women’s Wunning, Women’s Health, RUNNERS WORLD, Cooking Light and the Food Network)
B. Read a book, I know Mom I have come a long way. Mind Gym is awesome if you are looking for a book about the mental aspect of running and exercise.
I use a headband to keep it open. Maybe I should patent this idea before I post this.
C. Watch the classics on my iphone.
D. Think about what I am going to cook or eat that day. (Usually involving chocolate)
E. Jam out to my favorite songs. Yes, I am one of those people that sing as they work-out. ‘Like a G6’ was listened to 4 times in a row this morning. Obsessed.
F. Watch Saved By the Bell, VH1 or the Food Network on the TV’s. Slater and his dimples.
G. Contemplate my life.
Please don’t mind the acne, albinoness and sweatiness. It happens. It was also 6 A.M.
I am sure you can all relate but the gym is ME time. I don’t have to answer to 15 year olds and I can spend time doing something 100% for me. This time allows me to be a better wife, friend, teacher, daughter and sister.
30 MInutes on the Stair Climber
40 Minutes Elliptical
Shower and out the door.
Thanks everyone for your sweet comment on my exciting news. You made my day!!
How do you pass the time when you are working out?
-You saw my list. When I run I don’t need anything except for an ipod every now and then….even on the treadmill, I am just happy to be running. Actually, a little Oprah helps.
