I have tried posting videos here but for some reasont hey never work.
In my attempt to get fit or maybe that should be keep fit I thought I should get an exercise bike. Was that a good idea ? Only time will tell. It certainly forces you to get up off your settee as so far I haven’t discovered one that is incorporated into my settee so that I can pedal lying down and get fit while I snooze !
What they are starting to do however is to plug exercise bikes into the mains electricty grid to make electricity while you are pedalling. Now that is a good idea as you could reduce your electricity bill as you pedal and maybe one day even get paid for pedalling. Of course some peope would then pedal all day long and the do-gooders in the world would complain that this was slave labour !
The problem with exercise bikes at the moment of course is that it is an incredibly boring activity so naturally you tend to do it while watching TV – so that you may be getting healthier but you are also getting stupider !
One person I saw on TV the other day while pedalling my way to health and fitness was Susan Boyle - she could do with an exercise bike herself ! But she can certainly sing – so hats off to Susan Boyle and good luck to her. I foresee problems ahead as she is rocketed to international superstardom but it’s got to be better than being unemployed in West Lothian so I dare say that at the moment she is not worrying too much about the possible probelms she may encounter.
The whole cult of celebrity is very peculiar – Susan Boyle was unknown and generally uncared for just a week ago – now everybody and his dog has watched her on youtube and people are camping outside her house in the hope that they might get her autograph.
Also, a CD that nobody was interested in last week is now selling on Ebay for over £1000 because she has become famous and has sung a song on TV. How weird is that ! Still let’s wish her well and let’s hope she gets herself a personal fitness trainer to make her a bit fitter and leaner and meaner !
So my foray into exercise equipment has so far been only a moderate success but I have increasd my knowledge of the trivial pursuits that make this merry world go round !
