The "Gym" - Workout Wednesday Link-up


Believe it or not, it is possible to lose weight without a pricey gym membership. I did have a gym membership the first time I lost weight (you can find that story HERE), mainly just to use a treadmill. (Running in Wyoming year round is nearly impossible. Unless you're crazy and enjoy running in -30 degree weather on ice a good 6 months a year). But I still preferred my at home workouts.

So, here it is in all its glory... Dun Dun Dun... my "gym".

Yup, that's my bedroom. Being a single mama, going to the gym is not an option this time around - at all. So I make do with what I have. As my bff Jillian often says, "You don't need fancy gym equipment. All you need is your own body weight." Believe it - girl knows what she is talkin' 'bout.

My resistance bands came with my JM - Body Revolution order. Everything else I've picked up at my all time favorite store (enter sarcasm here), Walmart. 

A. I'm cheap
B. That's all we got

And yup, I shop at Walmart in my sweats. Sue me. Moving on...

Currently I am doing strictly Jillian Michaels Body Revolution with some added cardio from time to time. I highly recommend it if you have the money to spend. I am on week 6 and have lost 15 pounds (although I did peek at the scale every morning, afternoon and evening this morning and it showed a 2 lb loss so far this week. 15+2=17 in case anyone hates math as much as me... fingers crossed it looks that good on Sunday) and 7 inches in just my waist and hips.

I've also used all of these for variety in the past, and will again after JMBR. None of them cost more than $10 a piece and all can be done without special equipment. Win! 

That "it's too expensive" excuse? Yeah... doesn't work. You can do it!


  1. I have NO room right now for a at home gym. But will be moving soon and should be able to do stuff more at home. YAY! I want a gym membership because it includes tanning and massage chairs and etc for only $20 a month. Have a great night! and head on over to my page.. i am doing an awesome giveaway!

    1. I don't have a lot of room but it works for now! I can't wait until we are in a bigger place. Room for a treadmill will be a must.

      I would do $20 a month for a gym membership! That's way cheap. Thanks for reading!

  2. Good for you, I love a woman with no excuses!!!
