And now there is a treadmill...

So, the home gym continues to come together. Our treadmill is assembled and ready for use. I got on it last night for about 20 minutes while we were allowing the grease to lube the rollie-things and it was nice; however, when I got off I felt like I had been aboard a boat!!?! Is that normal? Anyway, I am going to try and get on it again tonight and see if I can't do a full routine without my dear hubby needing my help with more assembly projects.

Besides the treadmill we also assembled the Smith rack... just the outside of the rack. We have successfully completed four steps in a nine step process... but we are getting it! Tonight we will finish the rack and HOPEFULLY put it in its place and then I will take the pictures. If not Friday night for sure we will have it all together.

One last little thing... I did manage to have a lunch workout with SuperWoman, albeit short. We did the Ab workout due to time constraints and I felt it, for sure. I did get my Mom to burn me her copy of Hip Hop Abs that I think that I will bring to work and try to incorporate in our lunch routines so that we can avoid laying on the dirty floor... but that will have to be next week.

Thanks for reading and being patient with me... next week will be the first week that I will be back on track. I will be committed, motivated and SORE -- can't wait!

Make it a great day!!!

Best of luck with your gym and routines. Hip Hop Abs does look like a fun one. I just started taking a 30 minute abs class once a week with a personal trainer. I swear to you I was sore for a good three days after the first class-and he told us (my friend and I are doing this together)that each week we'd being doing more challenging things.

It's always good to mix things up and it sounds like that's exactly what you're doing.

So envious of your new home gym. I'm sure you'll put it to good use.

You have inspired me by the way. I HAVE to start working out again. It's been too long and I feel soft and flabby. Hoping to start on Monday with you!

I wish I had a home gym beyond my stationary bike - actually a real bike on one of those stands. I used to have a treadmill and I loved it, because it was in front of the TV!

Visiting from SITS. I have a good friend from HS that has lupus. I'll have to send her a link to your blog.
