Bargains on a new bike and the total gym
Friday, June 01, 2012
All the stars must be lined up, urging me to follow through with my intentions to get serious about exercising soon.
The bike that I had been wanting for a couple months was placed on sale for 35 % off, a bargain hard to pass up even after we found out that it had been reconditioned. As we drove to the store to pick it up we made plans for long country rides as a family together this summer. Later with the bike loaded in the back of the truck we stopped by a junk store and found a Total Gym exercising machine waiting for us by the cash register for another $65. It fits nicely folded up beside our fireplace in the living room where we can each exercise with it at our different levels even if we are watching tv (something I have less and less time for these days). My husband really looked cute exercising with our two Shih Tzu puppies riding upon his chest as glided up and down on the incline of the machine using cords to pull himself up with.
I guess I have no more reason for excuses not to exercise - there are lots of fun things for me to do that can help me achieve a permanent healthy lifestyle.
I am also hoping that being more physically active will provide better quality time for my family as well.
