Exercise bike

P found a recumbent stationary bike on Craig's List and we went and looked at it last night. It's by Pro Form and it's in nice condition. It has 7 different exercise programs, a seat that adjusts to 4 different positions so that one can use it as a weight bench (comes with a set of 3 weights) and the seat adjusts enough so that P and I can sit at it comfortably. It runs pretty quiet and I'm hoping that it will encourage both of us to use it.

P paid $150 for it, which is a good price.

The plan is to put it in the basement where the DVD player is so we can pop in one of our DVDs and watch while we exercise. I'm going to look at my schedule and see where I can fit in an extra 30-60 minutes per day for this. Just a little bit each day will be good for both of us.

I'm hoping we can get it down the stairs OK.

The best for me is to have a show that I only watch while exercising. If you can get a computer down there ABC and NBC do full episodes of shows so you don't even need to buy a season of anything.

The DVD player is the computer and I think Druigy has it hooked up to the wireless. I'm already planing to spend some time catching up on Heroes.
