This Sparked Me!

I just asked my husband to put my treadmill in the middle of the living room. Silly? Yes, well every time I plop on the couch, it stares at me until I get my butt up and on it. Then I feel good about watching my favorite shows and have so much more energy when I'm done. emoticon

    I would hate having a treadmill in the middle of my living room so much, that it would be an incentive to exercise - just to keep it out!

    And that's why mu recumbent bike lives in the family room.

    I have mine in the sun room where I can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors. I am home most days so it works for me. Your idea is great. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I probably need to move mine back in the house, but my house is too small for me to put the treadmill and bicycle in my living room. I know if it were in here, I would use it more. I just need to motivate myself to get out there. emoticon

    I did the same and now I have a new recumbent and it is plopped in the middle of the living room as well-I have no excuse for the couch now. LOL

    Great idea. We haven't gotten a ex bike because no room in the apartment...maybe
LADYVALK 7/18/2010 10:49:00 AM

    That is where we have our treadmill, but I don't seem to be as good as you!!
