Literally, this post is about working out. According to Stephanie, I need to balance out my baking posts. So per her request, here are some gym photos. This first one isn't too exciting as it's really just my workout gear piled up in the women's locker room. But it leads me to ask y'all for some help. I'm in need of some new workout music to keep my mornings in the gym fresh and exciting. So please leave me your suggestions in the comments. I'm looking for pretty upbeat music and I'm open to most genres. To sweeten the deal, for those that leave a music suggestion, I'll throw your name into a drawing to receive some sweet treats. Chances that the treats will be home baked depend on the winner's proximity. The deadline for the drawing is next Thursday, 11:59pm PST.
And lastly, a funny story from the gym last weekend. What do you get when you cross a monster Hummer sized treadmill with a stability ball? -- A workout, elevated in to another level.

They put in a monster treadmill at the gym a few weeks ago. And this thing looks like a hummer compared to the other treadmills. The tread looks like it belongs on a tank, it's so large! So I'm getting ready to leave the gym and am engaged in some conversation when all of a sudden I hear a "schoooooompf." I look over and the woman on the monster treadmill has stopped running and looks totally confused. And we're all wondering why, until we see that the small stability ball got sucked underneath the machine! It must have rolled to the treadmill and the next thing you know, the tread got hold of it and sucked it right up! So now the treadmill is completely jammed because of the ball. So of course, because this is a treadmill of monstrous proportions, it takes five women to get it out, four to lift and one to grab.
If there's a lesson to learn in this, don't keep stability balls near your treadmill. Aaaaaannyways, have a good weekend everyone!
