Would you like to take a gym Tour

I must admit I started my day a little later than normal. I woke up at 8:40 am!!! That is just odd. Normally I have done 30 things by then. Anyhow I decided to venture out and try something the entire blogoshere is doing.....

I added in a little baked apple and........ehhhhhh. I tried to make myself, but I just don't like pumpkin! Well at least I tried it. I'll stick to all the other 500 oatmeal concoctions their are :)

Well I'm sure I have discussed my desire to pinch and save a dollar more than once. I have already discussed how I did away with my dear trainer and gym membership. And we know the adventures of me and my temporarily (fingers-crossed) car-less lifestyle, so we understand the seriousness of low cost to me. With all that preamble....let me show you "MY GYM"

L to R: My (2) 5lb. handweights, my resistance tube, my trusty adidas, and my (2) 2 1/2 lb. ankle/wrist weights

My trusty ab roller (ehhh this was a gift, not sure if it's a real part of the gym) I'm not sure if this even does anything, but it made me want get a stronger core
and as Wisconsin days get colder, wetter and snowier.....

Videos will become a necessity when the weather here gets inevitably nasty! I really want Jillian Micheals' 30 Day Shred not sure if I'm ready for Ms. Micheals yet!
...and my absolute favorite part of my gym....

The bike trail! It's quiet, long, serene, and......

has a gorgeous view......and I get to see little questionable creatures like this

Never got a chance to figure out what the hell that was....LOL. I could see him move up and down so I knew he was breathing, but he refused to come out of that little ball he created! My cell phone rang and he moved a I continued on my jog. I've seen "when animals attack". I'd prefer to NOT be a victim. Thank you very much

Point being this journey is not going to include a body bugg, garmin, treadmill, or elliptical. Just the necessities: A body, and a desire and will to change it. That's all I truly need. Any and everything is possible!


  1. I'm currently on day 4 of 30 Day Shred, and it really isn't that bad once you make it through a couple of workouts. I was sore for the first three days, and today it was considerably less painful to move lol. I was really looking forward to doing it, though. And that's huge.

    I can't even tell what the furry thing is. It looks like a bunny...kinda lol. Anyway, I love your gym, especially the bike trail. It's beautiful.

  2. What a lovely view. I tend to stay far away from critters. lol.
