The Case of The Mysterious Disappearing Exercise Equipment

It would take a detective several days to locate the various pieces of exercise equipment in our house!  Oh, the air bike is out in plain sight, but has a coating of dust a mile thick.  But the gazelle (where did that name come from?) is buried under tubs of books in the back room, as is the rowing machine and a few other things that I don't even know the names of! 

I'd like to know why we don't buy these things when we are young and can use them without causing major injury to ourselves.  No, we wait until we are older and then it becomes urgent that we get back into shape after several years of being totally limp on the couch watching TV.  What are we thinking!

Now we have several machines that seem to work best as clothes trees and supports for boxes.  We rarely use any of them.  We take the easy way out - we go to the gym where they dust regularly and the machines are out in the open.  They even help us figure out what to do and when.  Tricking ourselves into calling our gym dates "appointments," we set a time and we show up.  Well, most of the time.

So, now the dilemma is...what to do with the equipment around here?  That is what HB (HoneyBunny) is pondering tonight.  He is sorting through things in the back room, decluttering,  and must decide what goes in the yard sale pile and what stays.  Oh, the pain of making that decision.  But, look on the bright side...if we sell some of it, it may help pay for the cost of going to the gym!  How silly is that!


  1. I use my gazelle any time I'm watching TV. I love it. I even have one at Mama's. I love to exercise. I hate to go to the gym. I'm glad you go.

  2. Grace, you are so funny and I enjoy your post so much!! I have sure been there and done that and now all I have is the Malibu Pilates that I thought would make me tiny like Susan Luchie (sp?) Didn't happen, but I've still got it, there may still be hope!

  3. Thanks for the encouragement, Gracious! We opted to keep that one and maybe even use it! LOL!

    Ginger, I just love your comments...they make me feel all warm inside! There is always hope, so if you'll give me a little push now and then, I'll do the same for you!

    Hugs to you both, GraceinAZ

  4. I used to have a gazelle and loved it! Now I use a wii...takes up way less space :)

  5. Welllllll???? How did the Garage Sale go??? You are so funny. I can relate. In the past 20 years I have bought & sold hundreds of dollars of exercise equipment! I recently got rid of my old treadmill & turned around & bought another one. I am possessed! I just wish I would use all this stuff. I would look like a body builder by now. LOLOLO Cute blog. Thanks. When you get a chance, check out my blogs at 2retirednewmans. I could use your input.


Your comments are like hugs that warm my heart!
