Just Call Us Gym Rats...

This may look like an ordinary basement to the uneducated eye, but for Andrew and me, it's our home gym.  We actually call it the {insert our last name} gym (original name, I know) but just because it's named doesn't mean that it's open for public use (take your sweat elsewhere, Phu!) 
Total number of machines in our gym? A whopping two, including our trusty treadmill (Andrew's main Christmas gift last year) and the Bowflex (Andrew's main gift this year):

Sad to say, the treadmill was neglected during the last couple months leading to the wedding and was even used as storage for shower gifts that we couldn't fit upstairs into our kitchen storage! However, it being a new year, and feeling inspired by New Year's resolutions, we're making the effort to be healthy. That means a regular exercise regimen - complete with an old-fashioned, pen and paper tracking calendar - as well as eating healthier. Sad to say, that means no "baking without a cause" as I promised Andrew. However, there are always events coming up that will require something sweet (two on my work calendar for this month, in fact) so this does not mean the end of baking posts! It just means I'll have to reserve my time and efforts for some really good recipes.

PS - I have to give a shout out for my Kindle, I didn't think it was possible to love it even more but it's wonderful for reading while you're on the treadmill.

Andrew? Boflex? Two words we never thought would be used in the same sentence.

You and me both, but he's become very adept at figuring out all the different workouts on it!
