I’ve been on this kick lately where I talk about our new house…a lot!  I hope y’all don’t mind, but there is just so much to do and so much potential that I can’t really help sharing all of my ideas with all of you. 

Last week I talked my husband into investing in a new bed, thank goodness because I’m not sure how much longer I can sleep with my hubby and Lil Man in our current bed.  This weekend as my husband was busy working on his To-Do list around the outside of the house I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to talk to him about my vision for our basement when it gets finished.  You see my husband wants to turn the basement into a “Man Cave” and I see absolutely no point in that, instead I think the basement would make a much better home gym.  Thankfully my husband was open to listening to my idea since he’s been on this weight loss kick lately…score one for me! 

I began by taking my husband into the basement so that I could show him my vision, you know cause me are all about the visual!  I started simply enough mentioning that a spinning bike would fit perfectly in one corner.  I’m pretty sure that I’ve already picked out the bike I want (you can see a similar one below) but we’ll let him think that he has some sort of say in the matter…you know for good measure.  I also made sure that I was prepared with a link to a website with all kinds of indoor bikes, you know so he would maybe think that an exercise bike was his idea, hey, I’m open to trying anything if it’ll get a gym instead of a man cave in my basement!  Next we talked about various different places to put his weight bench and weights, he of course was all about  this, and I can’t be positive but I’m pretty sure that I even saw a little twinkle in his eye by the time we got around to discussing where his heavy bag would go. 


I’m not exactly sure that I’ve talked my husband out of his “Man Cave” but I am pretty sure that the idea of buying some new home gym equipment did appeal to him.  And naturally it would only make sense to have an actual home gym to put the equipment in…right? 

So ladies (and gents) keep your fingers crossed that I get my home gym and that I don’t end up loosing my husband to the allure of a “Man Cave”.
