I love to read, but don't have enough time in the day to do so. I also had a hard time finding the time to exercise. I have a stationary bike at home and I have made it a rule that in order for me to read more of my book, I must do so on the stationary bike. There have been days where I've exceeded the time I set for myself because the book was so good and I didn't want to stop reading. I am now trying to find excuses to jump on that bike.

    I bought a tiny iron plate holder at the craft store and mounted it over my bike on the wall so I can read my kindle and ride. I also caught up on the phone with my mom the other day for 18 minutes and rode the whole way... chat, read... ride = mutlitasking!! - by SPARKPEG11
