I’m tired of going to the gym

(Editor’s note (does that sound official?) I’m having a problem uploading pictures – new WP update and my uploads are failing – sorry – this post is going essentially naked, except for the few images I was able to insert by url)
I’m tired of going to the gym. The gym I belong to is 2 miles from my house. It’s a woman’s only place and is really very nice. But, I hate going there.
I didn’t say I’m tired of working out – I’m just tired of going to the gym.
With my new found love of strength training, all I need to workout is a stability ball and some hand weights. I’ve got those.
But, I still need to get in some cardio sessions. And, since my foot is still not 100%, I can’t just go out for a run, I’m stuck with going for a walk for an easy workout or to the gym for a sweat fest cardio workout.
I want to have all those amenities in my own house. I think the best investment for us right now would be a stationary bike. I saw a nicely priced one at Sports Chalet the other day.
Each year for our wedding anniversary (which is in 2 weeks), my husband and I get ourselves a gift of something for us together. We don’t really exchange gifts with each other, we just buy something together.
So, I’m left with gently encouraging my husband that this would be a great addition to our house. He’s not opposed to the idea and told me I need to do some research. I’ve been thinking about it a lot and really think this piece of equipment would get some good use. Especially as I go back to work, I think this might be key to keeping me active as I add a huge commitment to my day.
Do you have a home gym? What’s in it? Do you have a cardio option? Any exercise bike recommendations? I’m linking up with Fitness Friday today – go check out Jill’s great blog hop.
