Thrift Store Finds #1

Yesterday I had a brilliant idea to start a new series on my blog titled, “Thrift Store Finds,” about fun, useful or otherwise amazing things that I happened to find at thrift stores.

Okay, I lied.  Maybe it’s less of a brilliant idea and more of an excuse to shop (and buy) things more frequently.  Maybe it’s just another way for me to put words on paper.  But in any case, here we are at Thrift Store Finds #1.  I love thrift stores and the bargains you can find there, if you know how and when to hunt.  I guess it’s one trait that I happened to pick up from my wise mom.

Yesterday I was perusing the aisles at my local Goodwill and came across this little gem:


What is this amazing contraption, you ask?  Well, of course it’s a bike pedal for those of us who like to multitask, and boy do I love to multitask!

Lately I’ve been trying to find ways to squeeze in my cardio, but with writing and reading so much I just haven’t managed to get it done.  Well, yesterday my prayers were answered and now, as I type, I’m also peddling away like a fool.  (Paint that pretty picture in your mind; it’s a funny one!)

Will it work?  Who knows!  Will I keep doing it?  Sure!  Is it fun?  Sort of… I guess.  I can tell you one thing: my abs are on fire and my heart rate is up plus I just finished a blog, so that’s a win in my book.

Have fun everyone!
