Default New lady who lifts

Hi--I am just getting into WL. My husband and I are equipping our own home (basement) gym. Last week we got a weight bench and dumbbells. Next weekend we are getting a treadmill, then after that a stationary (recumbant) bike. We are both overweight and out of shape, but really don't have time to go to a gym so I hope we can do this at home. Anyway, I like the 3FC site and hope to get inspired by reading the posts here.

Hi girl!
We have the same sort of thing ! weights, treadmill, recumbant bike, boxing stand and a 3 station pully gym.
BUT make sure you have a stereo! (listening to music helps) and water handy...
Also make sure you get in and use it! (I spent 3 years just looking at all my stuff! And only recently started into it) Also make sure you have days off to recover your body! Usually it takes 1-2 rest days between body parts! And the first time even longer.
I do cardio mon wed fri, weights tue thurs.


YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!

HW - 286!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (somewhere over 130kg as thats as high as the scale i had went. )
175.5 - 18/4/2011... LAST 10 POUNDS
GW - 172 (78k)
