Finally I can reveal our new Fitness Room, which has been a work-in-progress for years. We finally got the room finished and our gently used gym equipment assembled. It only took FW (my hubby) 5 hours to assemble the massive weight machine which will work e-v-e-r-y muscle in your body! The only thing is, it takes time and energy to work those muscles, as well as a determined mind. I can assure you that I will in no way be ready for the Ms. Olympia competition this September in Vegas! Fact of the matter is, I will never be ready for such a competition, as I am not really into "body building", per se. I would however, like to tone my flabby stomach and butt, and arms and legs. After my 54 pound weight loss over a year ago (click here to see "before and after" pics), I have successfully maintained my healthy weight range. I did however, pack on a few pounds over the holidays, who didn't? It's time to get serious again and this machine is kicking my butt! My only hope is that it will eventually "kiss my butt" goodbye!
FW and I have been "working out" regularly together for about an hour every evening. It is so nice spending this quality time with him. He gives me the push I need and I, well I just complain. "It's hard. I can't do it. I'm sooo tired!" But honestly, I do enjoy the workout and guess what? I can lift 20 whole pounds! Like I said, I'm no body builder.
While you are here, won't you hop on over to FW's blog? He is celebrating his birthday today!! Happy Birthday to my wonderful, most thoughtful husband! Ready for that workout FW? *wink *wink.
