    What do you do or use to exercise with to help pass the time?

    As for me, I find if I watch a movie, it helps me to not look at the timer. When I'm constantly looking at the timer it feels like eternity. I mentally become tired and I want to quit.

    Now that I have Incorporated weights I find that I enjoy listening to music while working out. But only while doing weights.

    When I'm on the bike, I have headphones in my phone, watching youtube videos. I try to use my imagination to pull up memories of older, fast songs I've always liked

    I listen to music while I walk on my treadmill.

    Same here. I walk almost every day, weather permitting...and music really helps to pass the time.

    I never found anything that worked well for me, so I do most of my exercise by biking or walking outside, where I have scenery and people to see.

    I can manage 10-15 minutes strength training with gear in the basement if I vary what I am doing frequently. Probably doesn't make for an optimal program, but hopefully beats nothing.

    I go to a gym and there are TVs on - without sound, and music in the background. I have to concentrate when I'm working out quite a bit, but in between I glance at the TVs, like to see others exercising, and of course, some tunes just get ya goin!

    I've had a problem recently, my arms are shrinking in length... anyone else experience this?

    When I exercise, I use a knife and fork.

    I like to vary the routine. For cardio, I do spinning, or elliptical or treadmill. For weights I do freeweights, or machines or just body weight (the toughest, given how big I am). Keep those muscles surprised, who knows, they might actually respond and get stronger, even if they’re buried under all of this FAT!

    I listen to music, facebook or pinterest (on my phone), read a book, watch movies, play games.. so much is possible on an exercise bike. I really want to get a treadmill. I like using a stepper but it limits my options more on what I can do to entertain myself.
