Working on getting the place ready to sale for the past couple of weeks. The big thing we are doing is working on the curb appeal. We pressure washed all of the vinyl siding around the trim, painted the shutters, cleaned up the gutters really nice. I went to the Northern Hardware store and got a jug of this stuff that they sell to clean RV’s with. I would hit the stuff with the pressure washer, good and hard, but not so hard that you might tear it up. Continue reading →
I am trying to start to work out more often, and at the same time, I would like to encourage the rest of my family to work out more as well. I know that they are not exactly thrilled about the idea, but I am going to try to make it fun for everyone. I think that my kids spend too much time watching TV and playing video games. I need to get adjustable dumbells because if the weights are adjustable, then everyone in the family is going to be able to use them, and that is exactly what I want.
I thikn that i am going to get multiple sets of adjustable dumbells, because that would mean that multiple people would be able to work out at the same time. I am going to encourage my family to work out in pairs, because it is easier to go longer, and to do more work, when you have someone else that is working out alongside you. At least, that is what I have found in my own personal experience. But I think there is a psychological basis to the assertion.
I am just not sure how much it is going to cost to get the type of versatile dumbbells that I want to get. I want something that will go from as low as 5 pounds to as much as 50 pounds. I think that would be an appropriate range for my entire family. I do not see myself doing bicep curls with more than 50 pounds any time soon, so it should be fine for me as well. Right now, I am doing bicep curls with 35 pounds, and it is quite a good amount of weight, in my opinion. But I have not worked out much in years.
