My home gym!

Sunday, January 13, 2013

Here are the pictures of my new treadmill, my elliptical and by bike.
I was thinking how lucky I was to have the space to have these great cardio machines and the strength and ability to use them as well.
Everyday I come home from work and I look forward to a fun healthy dinner with my family and then my relaxation time in the gym.
Funny to think of it as relaxing because it is far from "relaxing" as far as physically, but it is so great to just kind of get in a zone of working out on each of these machines and then stretching at the end and feeling so great and like I have really accomplished something.
It just goes to show that we can all "fall" in love with exercising. It just takes time, perseverance and lots and lots of willpower!
But I can do it, and I will do it!
Have a great week everybody and keep on spreading the spark!

    This looks like the ideal gym to me! So wonderful to have all the equipment you need at home! I only have a bike, which lives in my living room - not ideal! I take it to my bedroom when I have visitors, as it really takes a lot of room.
    I was intrigued by something you said in your blog. You said you have dinner, and then you exercise... How do you manage it? You don't get stomach ache? Please, give me your secret, I must have an empty stomach (or near empty) when I exercise!

    Great for you! Whatever works.... right? I found an indoor pool, while I am waiting for ours to warm up! Also, I am a ZUMBA nerd! Seriously!

    That's awesome! I'm jealous of your machines. ALthough I have an elliptical and a bike myself that never get used. But anyway, it's great they're you're rockin' them everyday. It always feels so awesome when you finish with a killer workout.

    Hope you're having a great week!

    Something is wrong! Those pieces of exercise equipment don't have clothes on them, like mine do.

    Now that is a great set up, it also looks light and airy down there. Now I can picture you in your home gym everyday. emoticon
    My elliptical is downstairs and my bike is upstairs, of course my favorite bike is in the garage and my favorite place is outside.
    Thank you for trying to send me some sunshine, we both need it, I guess it will happen someday. emoticon You can just keep sending me your sunshiny disposition. Thank you for that.
    You are doing great. keep it up. emoticon Jackie

    Oh how I wish I could get an elliptical, but I have no room at all for one! I do have a Treadclimber though! Oh well!

    Much success to you on your weight loss journey! emoticon
