|Posted: 1/23/2013 7:46:35 AM|How are these connected?? Well, I figured it out! Today I went to the gym. I do not like working out at all. It is not my thing, but I force myself to do it anyway. Plus, i have a girlfriend that usually goes with me. Today I was alone, bored and hating it. Seriously, there was no way I was going to be able to force myself to stay on that stupid machine. But then it dawns on me...
AAAHHHHH!!!!! (lightbulb moment here)
The gym has wi-fi. I have my iPhone with me. And I have time to catch up on all the GG VIDEOS!!! Woot woot! I stayed on the machine, watched all the newest videos and the time really went fast. Awesome!
Thank you Janna, Kristina, Shimelle and Jill for the videos I just caught up on. And any of you that dislike that treadmill and need a way to stay on, here is an idea for you!!

Good work, corej!! Whatever it takes to get that work out in.

Yet another reason I wish 2Peas would make an ANDROID app!!!!
You can watch YouTube on the Android, right? That's how I watch on the iPhone (not in the Two Peas app), so I think you would be able to do that on any smart phone. Just head to the Two Peas Youtube channel or search the names of the different series if search is easier than channels.
But my bigger question is to Corrie: do we get workout points if you watch us while you're on the treadmill? Because you know... that would be awesome. (A girl can dream!)

|Posted: 1/23/2013 9:05:51 AM|Bluna- all of the Two Peas videos are on their YouTube channel, so you don't have to have the 2Peas app to view them!
Corrie, I do the same thing on my cardio days in the winter (in the summer I run outside)- that or reading a book on the iPad. It TOTALLY makes the time fly!
|Posted: 1/23/2013 9:07:07 AM|What a great way to catch up on the videos and get your workout in!!
|Posted: 1/23/2013 9:20:07 AM|I was just debating watching some, walking on the treadmill or cleaning so you gave me a way to do two at once!!
|Posted: 1/23/2013 9:29:29 AM|Love this idea!

Yes, no Android app needed. I didn't realize the videos are all on You Tube. I just use my browser and go to the 2Ps website to watch.

I do this too, or I listen to Paperclipping Roundtable - but I prefer videos as it distracts me better! I hate being at the gym so I'm always doing stuff like this to distract myself haha!
I use YouTube or my normal internet browser to view videos because I can't find them in the app, they never show up for me. Does anyone else find this??
|Posted: 1/23/2013 12:17:37 PM|
I am the same. I can never watch the videos in the app so I just go out to the Internet or YouTube.

You know, I do not know how to find the videos on the app either. So I just use my browser. Android users - you can do it too!!! I still don't like going but at least it is entertaining!

I'm so going to do this next time instead of being bored on the machines. I wish I could like it--I don't. Maybe this will change things.

Brilliant! This would make me work out more and make me feel creative afterwards. Nice job and thanks for sharing! I'll be trying this this week!

ohhhhh.. such a good idea. i can watch videos on my kindle while walking away on the treadmill - perhaps that will get me motivated to move my lazy behind!
|Posted: 1/23/2013 4:13:54 PM|
Wow that is a GREAT idea-- I usually read while on the treadmill. This will be so fun and change it up for me! Thanks for the idea!

I am so going to do this next time I'm on the "dread-mill!" love it!

|Posted: 1/23/2013 4:47:37 PM|Can't believe I never thought of that! My massage therapist advised me to start using the treadmill because it's so ridiculously cold here and I need some exercise. Totally going to do this. Thanks.

You mean I should be using the treadmill while watching Glitter Girl? But how will I write down the products I want? And I don't think I can hold my wine glass steady...

I always watch youtube scrapping videos while I'm on the elliptical! I can't really do it while on the treadmill because I RUN on the treadmill! On the elliptical, it's easier to scroll if I need to!

Great idea. I have a blackberry so I hadn't even thought about watching when I am on elliptical, I uaually watch HGTV. I would love to be able to catch up on scrapbook videos. I think it would make time go by faster.

That's a great idea! I think I'll use my kindle to do that very thing tomorrow morning. Pick a longer video and off I go. Woohoo!

That's a good idea to watch GGs while working out. I usually don't watch anything and it drags but I will have remember to put on GGs. But one note I don't mind working out but I hate doing it during the cold months. Working out gives me just the boost I need.

I used to watch Heidi Swapp and 2Peas videos while running (oh make that walking lol) on the treadmill and while cycling.
Always loved it!!
