Happy Tuesday! I am linking up with the Not Just A Mom ladies for September. This month we are sharing favorite workout places.
I think it goes without saying that my favorite workout place is the beach! I love to walk on the beach and run on flat roads near the beach. In addition to making my body feel stronger, my heart and brain feel so good after I exercise in that salty air.
While the beach is my favorite, I can’t be there every day. So I exercise in my basement. It is not glamorous or fancy, but it has everything I need and it is always open.
The white drawers have a variety of bands. I have dumbbells from 2-15 lbs and kettlebells from 5-25 lbs.
Jeff just added a tv into this area for me so I can connect my iPad. I love having it. I recently got a workout bench and it is so nice to not improvise with the rocker from the boys’ nursery, chairs from the kids’ table, or this kitchen chair.
I typically do the Faster Way to Fat Loss workouts, but I have been adding in Moves by Madeline and Peloton workouts. A friend just added me to a Facebook group called HardCore on the Floor and I am hoping to follow the Peloton workout calendars there next week.
What workouts do you love? Do you have any to recommend that would work in a basement gym like this one?
I am trying to get my workouts done in the morning before school because that is the only way I can guarantee I’ll get it done. I do like to walk about 2 miles during the boys’ practices in the evening to complement the weights I lift in the mornings.
Hopefully if you are reading this between 5 and 6 am I’m in the basement. If you’re reading this after 6, I’ve been to the basement gym and I am back upstairs getting ready for the day. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

Love your discipline- I can’t wait to be able to go back to the gym- love my classes there but walking outside is a close second!
Working out some place pretty would be ideal!
I have been loving taking a walk in my neighborhood every evening. I am already dreading when it starts getting dark earlier and I don’t know what I will do!
Workouts on the beach are the best. Can’t beat the view of course. You have a nice basement set up!
Oh yes, exercise on the beach is perfect!! Sadly, I pretty much never get to do that.
