My day off?

Thursday, June 16, 2011

It was supposed to be anyway. :P Instead, I was at a manager meeting. I'm going to take most of tomorrow off instead. I was going to work it for the overtime, but decided I'd rather spend the day working out. Besides, I'll still have a little extra to go toward the treadmill fund, because the reason for the meeting was to decide when we were going to pay out the bonuses for the contest we just had. That will be on this next check, so that'll go in the treadmill kitty. :D

When I got home, I decided to head down to the basement and see what needs to be done to get it set up as a gym. First on the list is to get all the carpet out of there. Its old, its ugly, and I don't want it down there! So little by little, I'm going to get it all cut up into chunks, bagged up into garbage bags, and get it out of there. Once the carpet is up, I'll get all the old padding scraped off the concrete and then scrub it down really well. Then I'll get some fitness mats and it'll be ready to go once I get the elliptical! I'd like to have a TV and DVD player down there too, but for now I'll just use the laptop for my videos. I've done them all so I know what's happening on them, so a big screen isn't really a necessity.

I spent 20 minutes cutting and hauling carpet tonight, then did 40 minutes of fast paced walking and jogging around the front room. I got a step when I got the new pedometer, so I took the legs off it and turned it into a rocker and used it a lot during my "walk". That'll sure light up the hips and calves!

I'm going to relax for a bit and then head to bed early tonight. I always say that, but tonight, I'm going to try and make it happen. :P

Have a great night everyone!

    I am going to be soooo jealous of your workout room! I would love to have a space to do the daughter may upset to find that I turn the TV room outside of her bedroom in to my own personal mini gym!
