Reading Workouts & Strange Stuff

No Tech Tuesday today, my friends. Last week was testing. Blech. Hope to have some good ones soon. Our poor Nook e-reader bookclub got messed up from testing. Once we get back on track hopefully I will have more to say. And the library is getting an iPad! Just one. :[ But hey. You have to start somewhere.

Which is exactly what this post is about. 'Cause my exercise? Yeah, it's been non-existent for several months now. And yuck. I hate exercising but I hate being too tired to do anything even more.

SO starting somewhere ...

goal will be ... four times at week. Three cardio and one strength. I want to up it back to six but seriously ... starting somewhere!

Anyone have a suggestion for a REALLY GOOD AUDIOBOOK that would motivate me? Like I'm only allowed to listen while on the treadmill or bike (we are talking gym and not road here). Sometimes I just need tunes but a really good book helps the time to pass more quickly as well.

Could also mention that an important part of this will be eating better. Check out this Pinterest board for "healthy" recipes I want to try (have a whole other board devoted to not so healthy!)

If I bought this would it make exercise less annoying?


On a totally unrelated note ... I'm a little weirded out. I've never posted the full presentation here because I always forget to check the contract (it's in my school email) about whether I even could or not. I'm assuming it's on their website? But I gave a webinar a while back and tonight I was going through my Google Reader and found a post by someone who ... from what it looks like ... totally copied several of my slides. Down to phrases that there is no way they would just repeat by accident. I find that odd. If they'd asked? TOTALLY would have said yes and would have been super excited about it. Well. What's even weirder is they've already taken the post down. Change of heart? Realized that's not the way to go about it? It's just in my Google Reader now. Debating an email message. Or just letting it go.



  1. I love the dinosaur motivation! I've not managed an audio book yet. I have watched TV series off of NetFlix on my iPad on the treadmill. I wrote about that with a photo here: http://www.joyweesemoll.com/2012/01/24/adventures-on-the-treadmill/
    Sheila of Book Journey reads a lot of audiobooks and reviews them, so there should be some help from that source: http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/
    Good job setting the first goal!

  2. I would recommend some great listening like 11-22-63 which is Stephen King - but not like his other books. highly recommend it and you will not want to shut it off. Also - if you love the 80's (I do!) Ready Player One was one of my favorite audio books last year.

    1. Thank you so much! I am now going off to go look at these ... cause even with the holiday weekend my intentions did not materialize. I will not flip out ... I will just do better next week. :/
