Camy here. I know, you’re looking at the post title and thinking, “Waaaaaaaaaah?”
But I confess, I read while I’m on the exercise bike all the time. Or I’ll go for a walk with an audiobook on my iPod.
There are some people who say that if you can read while on the exercise bike, you’re not working hard enough. They say that you shouldn’t be able to read while doing exercise.
But I say, phooey on them! Sometimes, the only way I can motivate myself to get on the exercise bike is with the promise of reading a good book!
And let’s face it—a moderate speed on the exercise bike is better than nuthin’! And reading while on the bike makes me feel like I both exercised and pampered myself with some reading time. Win-win, right?
So for all those who say you have to be heaving and sweating on the bike, I turn a deaf ear. And dig back into the latest Love Inspired Suspense novel. LOL
Sweat would stain my pages. Can’t have that.
Do you “trick” yourself into exercising? Or are there ways you can “trick” yourself into getting moving?
