My Flexmaster Stepper/ Home Gym Wants/ Another Yummy Meal

I love having a home gym. It is certainly not as great as an actual workout center or a home gym of someone who has a lot more money than I do. The good thing is that I can still get great workouts in!

I bought this Flexmaster brand stepper a while back because I wanted something compact and inexpensive that I could use for cardio. While it is not bad, the cardio workout you can get with it is not that great.  For only $60 I guess you can not expect it to be as good as a regular stair master/stepper!

I think it is great for a warm up before any kind of a workout or a cool down. It is also good for getting some movement in if you have a desk job and have been sitting too long.

What I would really like to add in my home gym

I am currently happy with the things I have in my home gym but I would like to add more things in the future. Here are the items that I have been thinking about:

  1. Resistance band set (like this:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GCA4BJC/ref=psdc_3407931_t3_7245456313)- I have one resistant band and it would be nice to have more so I could have a complete workout routine.
  2. Folding treadmill- I want one that does not take up much space or cost a ton. Being able to do HIIT this way would be awesome!
  3. PowerBlock Elite Adjustable Dumbbells- I have the PowerBlock Classic 50 dumbbells but I guess I will need more weight sometime soon. Unfortunately there is no expansion weight kit to add on to it so I will have to buy a whole new set that allows for more weight. I feel like adjustable dumbbells like these are a must for home gyms unless you can afford and have room for the racks of weights that are at workout centers.
  4.  Inspirational wall decals- Decorations can really do a lot for a person’s attitude so I  figured it would be nice to have one up in my gym!

Easy low carb meal

A while ago I put a picture on a post that was of an easy sausage and peppers crock pot meal (see here: Life Check In and a Yummy Low Carb Meal). I wanted to make it again but instead of sausage, I used 1.5 pounds of meatballs. Here is what it looked like:

I apologize for the bad photo again. Trust me, this is really good!

 

 

So, what do you have for home gym equipment?

Life Check In and a Yummy Low Carb Meal

Things have been going great with my diet and exercise plan.  I still have not weighed myself and I really do not care to. When I look in the mirror I see a healthy person and that is all that matters.

I feel like my pants are fitting a little looser which is good. Also, my stomach feels less bloated than it used to. Yay!

I usually wear sweat pants and beat up tops so sometimes it is nice to put on something a little cuter than that. I decided to try on a patriotic tank top that I planned on wearing in the summer. Not too sure if I like it yet though!

I also made a really easy crockpot meal. You just put a pound of Polish sausage, sliced onions, sliced peppers, seasoning and some crushed tomatoes into a crockpot. Let it cook on high for three hours and you have got yourself a yummy low carb meal!

Ok, maybe the picture is bad but just trust me on the yumminess.
