    I have a different trick. I listen to audio books and only allow myself to listen when I exercise. Always want to hear the next chapter!

    Talking on the phone while you ride your exercise bike is a terrific idea! Will do! emoticon

    This is funny you should say, I walk on the weekends with my girlfriend that lives 45 minutes away..I put on my bluetooth and I'm off and is nice that we can spend the time this way as well. I'm building a stronger friendship with her this way...

    I do this as well, {sometimes}, & it really does help. When I've done 2 miles on the treadmill, I make the phone call, & keep walking , this is usually good for another 2-3 miles.
