Bored at the gym: how to keep my head in the game?

I want to go to the gym, but the gym is so boring. Reading books/listening to music/watching TV during compatible exercises (i.e. no books with free weights) doesn't seem to help. How can I keep myself stimulated so that I can get through more than 30 minutes of working out? [more inside]

IQ, Working Memory, and ADHD

I'm looking for information on the differences in distribution of IQ and working memory test scores between those diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder and the general population. Ideally, I'd like to see histograms for each group.

Should I communicate to other that I have ADHD? If so, how?

I've just been diagnosed with Adult ADHD. (No, this isn't the person who inquired earlier, although it inspired me to get it checked.) I'm going to be getting therapy to get better, but I wanted to know how you would view a person who admitted he had ADHD to you? It's apparent to me now that I've messed up a lot of things in my life because of it (Failing out of college, frequent job changes, crappy social life). I want to be able to say, "Hey, I messed up because of this, but I'm changing for the better." If you were an employer or even a guy/girl I was asking out, would you accept this as an excuse for my prior mistakes? Should I even mention it at all?
