It’s been just over 12 months since I started using the Peloton App without the bike and I thought it was time to share an update to my original review.

I am happy to report that with the Peloton App I have now lost 22 pounds, am fitter than I have been in years and am in a much better mood (according to my family)!  The variety of Peloton spin classes is awesome, the instructors are great and all the other options the Peloton app has added over the past year like weight training, bootcamp and ab workouts are simply amazing.  I even think the production value is great compared to some classes I have tried on YouTube.  Overall, super psyched.  They are seriously on to something here.

Have a I used it every day for 12 months straight?  Heck no!  Life gets in the way (like sick children, work or deciding to stay in bed instead of working out) but hey, I am only human.  There have even been stretches where I simply haven’t worked out for no reason in particular.  When there has been a lull in my routine I am happy that I am only spending $13 on the app (now $19.49 for new riders) and didn’t take the plunge and go all in with the expense of the actual bike and the $40 monthly subscription.  I think that the guilt from spending all that money and then not using it would kill me.

If you are a first time visitor to my blog, my comprehensive review and step-by-step guide to my Peloton App alternative can be found in my  original “Peloton for Less” blog.   This post is a scaled down summary of all the bits & bobs that make my method not only an absolute money saver but also turns me into a sweaty mess…

Hi!  A real short one for my readers.  Have you ever spilled some red wine on your couch or rug?  Well, it has happened to me more than once and I have found the absolute best solution.  It is called “Wine Away” and it makes the red wine disappear in minutes.    Just the other day I accidentally kicked over a glass of red wine that I had placed on our rattan rug in our sun room (yes, I know, a very bad spot for a glass of wine…) and the stain disappeared with just a couple of squirts. I was skeptical but it is magical.  It says that it also  removes coffee, ink, blood, sauces,  fruit punch, red medicine stains, and even pet accidents but I have only ever tried it on red wine.  Next time I will try to remember to take some before and after pictures as long…

Hi, welcome to my first blog.  We moved into a new house last year that already had speakers wired for sound but there was really no good spot for a large stereo receiver.  Instead we bought  four Sonos CONNECT wireless receivers.  A little pricey but it really helped with our seating options in our small living room by not having to position a bulky entertainment center.  We set the Sonos receivers up in the basement, ran speaker wire to the speakers upstairs and presto!   We now can play music in our living room, dining room,  sun room and by the pool all from the Sonos app on our phone.  We can access Pandora, Amazon Music,  our music library on Apple iTunes, etc.  We are very happy with our purchase!  The app is very intuitive and easy to use.
