Our Tiny Gym

Where membership is free and there’s no waiting for machines!

(If D gets in my way, I can just smack him.  That was frowned upon at my previous gym.)

This giant monstrosity is our new Bowflex Revolution.  Loving this!  I was always pretty self-conscious doing strength training at the gym.  I always felt like I was crashing some kind of frat party or something… damn bunch of pretty-boy muscle heads…

C.C. always “supervises” me.
I love that it stands up to take up less space.  Although that’s not really an issue for us right now, but it’s nice to know it’s an option.  And it DOES make vacuuming easier.  And it leaves plenty of floor space should I decide to take up pole dancing or karate.  Both viable options.
Bella and Harley suffer from a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out).

The Bowflex came with this awesome accessory rack (thank goodness–like we need more crap stacked in the floor).  And there in the corner is my new pride and joy–a Sunny Health & Fitness indoor cycle.  I could tell you all about it, but there’s no sense reinventing the wheel.  Janae just bought the same one and has already posted a full and very accurate review here.  Most definitely worth the money!

After laying down all that cash, I thought our gym was complete, but DUDE, we have GOT to get a TV for that room.  Music makes the time in the saddle tolerable, but the view kind of sucks.

And, who knows… if I happen to come across a good deal on a Craigslist treadmill…

Three Things Thursday

1.  MY.  ABS.  ARE.  SORE.  I mean REALLY sore.  Like to the point where I coughed and thought I was gonna die.  I went to the gym last night and did quite a bit of core work.  I think I may have overdone it just a wee bit.

2.  My sweet new mattress finally has blankets!  We have had a king-size mattress for several weeks but hadn’t been able to find a comforter set that we I liked.  We bought sheets out of necessity but had just been using odd assorted blankets but no comforter.  I finally found a heck of a deal on a set I loved on overstock.com and it came in yesterday.  It’s soooooooooo pretty and sooooooooo fluffy and comfy.

3.  I totally outdid myself in the kitchen last night.  I made some killer veggie quesadillas.  I didn’t know I had it in me.
