The answer is no. Me? A woman of few words? Hardly, but this one – I’m afraid – warrants little debate.
Some machines, like cyclettes, do in theory allow for space and time to read whilst pedalling. Having observed fellow gym goers though, I’m firmly of the view that it’s a silly endeavour. Drips of perspiration falling on your book whilst pretending to do two things at once? No.
If working out is too boring, well, just join a library, you’ll be happier and fitter, the latter if your local library is enormous and the browsing of books requires climbing stairs.
The rare brevity of this post allows for some welcome diversion into the world of glass and the use of glass jars to store fabulous food.
Lunch on the go
Stuff any left overs in one or two glass jars
Remember one frenzied morning whilst you are looking for something to take to work for lunch that you do have some perfectly stored and potentially still edible goodies in the freezer.
Take the frozen glass jars with you and enjoy (only to be pursued if your work place allows re-heating…which some places don’t…)
