Financial Ruin? Or Awesome Abs?

Well, I did it.  I just clicked “BUY” and purchased my first elliptical machine.  HFS.  What have I done?  I am incredibly excited about this… I have wanted one forever… but the thought of spending $1,000 on something, RIGHT WHEN WE’RE FREAKIN’ BROKE… scares the shit of out of me.  However, I need to make my health a priority.  Hubby has no problem with me spending the money on this, so I’m not sure why it’s so hard for ME to do it.  I had to force myself to rationalize it by saying, “Well, a membership at the local gym will cost me $500/year, so really in two years this thing will have paid for itself!”  I know that it’s true, it’s just crazy for me to spend $1,000 on anything like that.  Hopefully this will eliminate a lot of my excuses for not working out.  If it’s in my house, I have no excuses.  Pretty freakin’ excited about that, not gonna lie. 

Should arrive in 5-7 business days.  Wish me luck. πŸ™‚


  1. I'm so excited that you did it! You're gonna kick ass on that thing. I also am ashamed to admit that I had to sit here and figure out what HFS meant for a second. Don't tell anyone.

  2. LOL…yeah…I used to work out at a CrossFit gym and it was INTENSE… one day during a workout that was killing us all, someone (might have been me, not telling) yelled out HOLY F*ING SHIT while trying to finish the hellish exercise they had us doing…and that was the end of the story. I'm addicted to it now, b/c it works in so many situations! πŸ™‚

  3. Hi Josey, I came across your blog from gundy's, and I have a few free hours without my kids so rather than cleaning here I am playing on the internet. I'm another with progesterone problems so gundy's comment about that got me interested in your story… but anyway, I still hadn't figured out HFS until your comment πŸ™‚
