This is what we call our work out building. We have about 6 acres of land – in which we have our home, and a 2,600 sq foot bldg on. We use this building for storage – you know…..fall, Christmas – Junk, EVERY and I mean EVERY bit of my children’s baby stuff – yes I have not ever gotten rid of their things. Someone say it – garage sale??
At any rate also in this building we have a weight room, my husband has lifting weights since he was in high school, and has TONS of weights – you name it he just about has it. The room we have this in is ohhh I’d say about a 24 X 24 room (at least). There is NO AC and NO heat in this room (we do have one room that has it). This is where I work out. Last February I got hooked on working out (mind you my hubby for 7 years tried to get to join him – I did try several times, but ending up staring at him instead). He got me started – worked with me so patiently, I even kept a journal.
I did/do a body part a day 4 different lifts , 3 sets X 10. I usually add in crunches as well. I did this 5 days a week – Wed/Sunday off. Not missing any days (maybe a few exceptions). I have since relaxed it a bit – I do not do a solid 5 days some weeks I do, some I don’t. I play softball….so those days I do not (which I haven’t started fall ball yet) And I do have kiddos so things come up.
The reason we have named this work out room the “Shed of Pain” is the no heat/no air – or that is why I call it that. Florida Summers are KILLER in there, but it’s a great sweat. I’d rather take on the summer than the winter…..THAT is what I’m dreading, going in there when it’s COLD. I.HATE.IT.
Here’s a small corner of the workout room (don’t pay attention to how dirty it is)
A HUGE ol’ thanks to my wonderful husband who was SO patient with me, and who got me hooked on this. I know it was hard – and I was hard-headed 🙂 He changed my life in so many ways, they were all for the better!!!
