Today at the gym I decided I was going to use my fancy new phone to get caught up on some of the weight loss blogs I read. I downloaded an app called gReader and started reading. The next thing I knew, the elliptical was beeping at me because my time had expired. While reading worked well for cardio, it did not help in the same way with strength training. My set breaks were much longer than they needed to be. It did motivate me and break up some of the monotony of going to the gym. I never thought I'd be able to concentrate on reading material at the gym. I suggest you give it a try.
Reading all those blogs made me realize something. It's a miracle that I've been able to lose as much weight as I have without keeping a closer eye on my intake. So today I've started back up on the daily plate. I always have trouble with the plate, but this time I want to stick to it. When I'm on summer break, it's too tough to avoid snacking unless I'm logging all my food.
Tomorrow I may attempt to blog from the gym. The operative word being attempt.
