Spring break, Google Reader and Treadmil

I am typing this post on my IPad. First time I try this.
I am using the blogger app.
There is no preview button and I am not sure how the pictures will show..
I see how to select them but not how to insert them in the txt...
If you know how to do this..please help me! :)

It is spring break here this week....this means running at the gym and also referring a bunch of fights between my boys....

I tried to find a way to run outside and I thought I had come up with the perfect plan. They ride their bike on the trail and I run. Perfect right?.... Not so much...one said ok and the other a big fat no.

So to the gym we go every morning.

I had not run on the treadmil in a while...and it was not so bad..I noticed that I run faster on the machine. I used to run at the gym at last once a week for speed work and I stopped after I got injured. Time to start doing speed work again I think.
While I was running I was thinking that it would be good to have a TM at home. Bill would used it and we could stop paying gym memberships....

So....do you have one? Do you like it? What brand is good but not too pricy? Where is it in your house? That is a problem..where to put it..cannot be in my room...that is on the 2nd floor...cannot be in the garage..too hot most of the year... I am looking for advices about buying a TM.

What do you guys use to read blogs? I am now testing feedly and bloglovin. I downloaded both apps. So far I think I like bloglovin better. I wish I could comment on blogs without having to open them in a different window.

I finished my brackets for March Madness...
I went with my head....and my pick won't be wearing blue and be coached my the great coach K.... :(. More like wearing wearing a jersey with a bird on it.....

I am including pics of the boys getting haircuts today just to see how it will look on the post..

Ok now I see that the pics are all at the end.
Anyone know if it is possible to insert them using this app?

I tried the blogger app on ipad like twice, decided I hated it and never tried again. Wish I had some advice for you.

I bought my treadmill about 2 years ago and quit my gym membership and my calculation was that the savings on not paying the gym anymore would pay of the TM in 2 years and it worked out. I really enjoy having one and I placed a laptop in front of it and now watch netflix or hulu while running. I have it in our basement. Check out Costco, they have great quality, 2 year no question ask return guarantee and the price includes delivery and assembly.

I downloaded Feedly and really like it! I like the computer version a little better. Oh and I couldn't agree more in regards to the commenting!

Boys are home for spring break? Mine are home all the time! I understand about refereeing. Mine have lots and lots of chores to do so they have no time to fight. About the time they finish, they decide to get along :) (that is when everything works like it should! :) )

I don't have an ipad, so I am not of any help there. Feedly seems like a good choice, but i haven't tried bloglovin' yet.

Enjoy the time at the gym. Do what works best for you :)

Couldn't you go to blogspot web address from an iPad? I only use the blogger app if I'm on a trip and don't have access to a computer. All the pics show up at the end from my experience.

I use feedler rss app on my ipad to read blogs. I have the wordpress app to blog but it is much easier to do on my computer.

I keep trying to talk my husband into a treadmill, but he thinks since I have an elliptical that is enough, plus the great outdoors.. I have tried bloglovin, will have to check out feedly. What a pain this all is!

I don't like the blogger app. I have tried it on my tablet and my phone. I think maybe it was me, but I didn't like it. I just use blogger from the browser instead and that works better for me.

Enjoy your spring break!

For the treadmill, go garage sale shopping for one and get it pennies on the dollar. That is what I did, I got a ok one for $25, it isnt fancy at all, but does the job and for $25, I got my money worth plus some.

I had a treadmill in my garage for lots of years and I just recently sold it. Sometimes it was too hot and sometimes it was too cold and sometimes I would just keep putting my workouts since the TM was right there in the house. My son would also keep coming into the garage and asking me how much longer I was going to be. It did not work for me.I think I am the type of person who needs to get out of the house to run so that I actually do it and nobody can really bother me.

i find it easier to go faster on the TM as well--- i struggle with using the treadmill when the weather is gorgeous, so its still a work in progress on how often I use it.

agree with comments above, just go into browser and straight to blogger as its easier. Otherwise what i'll do is write the post on the app to get it in there, then go to website to upload photos. I haven't found an easy streamlined process

I found my treadmill on craigslist. Its in my living room- not ideal but I dont have an extra room for a workout room so there it sits. I watch netrflix on my ipad while im on it.

I have the treadmill in a room at the ground floor, but it is the kingdom of the spiders because I never use it. It was helpful when I had to recover after the surgery to rebuild my leg.
Beautiful photos.

I have been using Bloglovin' to keep up with everyone since google reader is leaving us.

Elizabeth said...
