A little waiting. A little wishing. A little dreaming.

I am eagerly waiting for this to show up in a box at my doorstep. 
I hope it gets here soon!
While running on the treadmill at the Y today, I realized I have been paying $24 each month to run 3 times a week at the Y. 
3 x 4 = 12 times (in a month)
$24 / 12 = $2 per run. 
And I have to run according to the Y's operation hours. 
And I have to wear clothes to run.
And while it is better than running outside in the heat, the air is rather still and stale and it gets rather warm after running 5 minutes.
The thermostat is on 70 degrees and there's no fan in the workout room.
So, I am seriously going to get myself a treadmill this Christmas! 
I'm starting saving right now.  
Say yes to running with fanSSSS blowing into my face.
Say yes to running with a sports bra and jiggly fats and not feeling conscious. 
Say yes to running at 4 a.m. or at 1 a.m. or sneaking a 1-miler while that casserole is baking in the oven. 

A little dreaming here. 
I would also like to set up a workout corner where I will put my running paraphernalia in that room.
 I like this room's color and having a quote on that wall. 
My corner will be simple. It will have a TV, treadmill, a few fans, my medals. 

I like the wall art on the photo below.
I will probably frame some of my race t-shirts, especially that RnR Mardi Gras one cos' it fits in a weird way.

So, there you go. 
Do you have a home gym? If so, send me pictures of it.
Tell me what works and what doesn't.
I would love to post it on my blog and share it with others!


  1. up until about 4 months ago, I had a treadmill/elliptical/stair climber/bike in a home gym. Now we've move and I miiiiisss it so much.

  2. I'd give anything to have a treadmill at home and say goodbye to the gym! Good for you for starting to save for one!

  3. I LOVE mine!!! I ran a half marathon on it, that would have not been possible at the gym. Yes, I run in sports bra only and nobody cares! My dog is happy because I'm much more at home :) MY room is light yellow and I have framed pictures of my races on the wall. I still need to move my medals in the room. I really like the idea with the quote on the wall!

  4. I'm getting ready to buy my treadmill for my new house---I can't wait. I am beyond excited to run whenever I want!

  5. WOW, I love those rooms! I can't get over the way the first one looks. Wow. How exciting that you're getting a treadmill! Those shoes are too cute, by the way.

  6. Cute shoes! I don't have a treadmill at home - but would really like one! Definitely do a post if you get some reader pictures of their home gym!

  7. I would love a workout room. The gym membership gives me motivation to use it though. Our gym is open 24hours a day. I hate the afternoon though because it is set at 74 degrees with no fans and it is hot.


Thanks for reading! Do leave me a comment or two. They keep me motivated.
