I’m thinking about getting a treadmill with the ifit video classes.... my roommates are getting a dog though and will need to be walked a lot
In keeping with my dichotomous personality, I am the laziest person when it comes to fitness, ever. I like mindless things like walks through familiar suburbs so that I don't have to worry about getting lost (walking tracks are even better, when available,) and treadmills I can just hop on and read for an hour as a means of enduring the boredom. I also find it that it motivates me to keep going in order to finish the next page, article, or even magazine if I'm close enough.
I also love the convenience of being able to work out whenever I want, and can fit it into my schedule. It's not uncommon for me to be strutting along at 2 in the morning, just because I couldn't sleep.
And even though I'm terrible at multi-tasking (my brain only seems to be able to concentrate on one thing at a time,) my schedule was once so busy that I would literally eat lunch while working out on an elliptical trainer at the same time.
Thank goodness it was a home machine, because I'm pretty sure a regular gym would not allow me to use their machines while eating a sandwich, even before you-know-what happened.
It WAS a bit awkward, only being able to work one arm on the elliptical at at time, while holding said sandwich in the other, but hey.
If you only have a certain amount of time, and you have to choose between lunch or a workout, who WOULDN'T try to choose both if at all possible!!??
Pro Tip: Chips are a little bit trickier, because of the crumbs.
