Bigger steps

Today Tim and I went to the exercise equipment store, and I ordered weights (Hampton chrome -- 5 lb, 7.5 lb, 10 lb, 12.5 lb, 15 lb, 20 lb, 25 lb, 30 lb) and rubber flooring (black with 17% white fleck). I also got a cool adjustable bench (incline and decline) and a weight rack (for holding dumbbells), a new stability ball, a door pull-up bar, and some magnetic weight plates (to create 17.5, 22.5, etc. weights as needed). Tim took apart the pull up tower I found in Craig's List, and my friend is coming to pick it up in the next few days (I'm happy to have found it a home!).

Tomorrow I meet with Steve at SST, who can get me discounts for Power Systems. My plan is to get some Dynamax balls, boxing targets, a Reebok core board, and a few other fitness toys. It's starting to actually happen and I'm getting very excited!!!

How cool just to have all that stuff at home. I can understand why you are excited.

A Weight Rack sounds good. I've never held much regard for Dumbbell Trees. They use less space, but they look a bit unstable, and not as easy to take off and add dumbbells too.

Goo to hear all is going well. You're a real inspiration, and you deserve this, so GOOD LUCK, and don't stop believing in your amazing abilities.

You're already a big success in life

:-) :-).
