Reading for the win

I made a discovery tonight. I can wear my reading glasses while I'm on the elliptical so I can read while I'm working out. This is HUGE for me. I have had problem after problem with earbuds because I have little tiny child-size openings that earbuds won't sit in. Wireless isn't an option because the TVs on the machines at the gym only work with jacks. And listening to music bores me to tears so I end up making excuses to quit early. I need a visual stimulation to keep me distracted enough to keep me on the machine.

So me getting to read while I workout? Like I said. HUGE. It flew by tonight. Plus, I get to read more. That's a win all the way around. I am far less likely to make an excuse not to go if I'm tired or not in the mood because I'll see it as a chance to read.
