So grateful to Nina Pineda and ABC News “7 on Your Side Team” team for interviewing me about my low-cost Peloton App alternative. It was loads of fun! In case you missed it, here is the short video of my 30 seconds of fame.
By now you know that I love cycling with my Peloton App (and if you don’t, here is my earlier review: My Peloton Bike Alternative). Despite the mad love, I wanted more variety so that I didn’t plateau on the bike. Peloton’s “After the Ride” classes are great but I needed some more oomph. After experimenting with some random classes on YouTube I signed up for a 30 day free trial of Daily Burn to supplement the Peloton and I am super glad that I did. Now what I do is alternate between Daily Burn and Peloton classes.
What is Daily Burn you ask? I only just learned about it myself.
Well, its been 6 months since I started my Peloton journey with my inexpensive Sunny bike and I could not be happier. I cannot say enough good things about the Peloton App.
I have lost weight, I am sleeping better than ever and I am much more energetic. The classes are interactive and communal but at the same time very intimate. Also, the instructors rock – they are very motivational, although I like some better than others.
I get a lot of email asking about how all the components of my “Peloton App Setup” are holding up so I thought I would post a review about some of the items that I recommended in my original post “My Peloton Bike Alternative; A Great Money Saving Hack.”
Here is what has worked well and what you can skip:
As some of you know I am the proud mother of two 7-year-old twin boys, so I could be considered an expert on gift ideas for boys.
I wouldn’t say that they are “spoiled” but they’ve been given a lot of toys over the years, whether it’s from Santa, their generous aunts, uncles, and grandparents, or Mum & Dad. Some get loads of use while others gather dust in the corner until they magically disappear…
Here is a review for gift ideas for boys of about 20 toys. Some are classics that you will remember as a kid and others are one-hit wonders.
WARNING: What you are about to see is a budget friendly home gym that will not look anything like you have pinned on Pinterest. You have been warned…
Last year we converted an unfinished area of our basement into our own mini-exercise room. We put up one wall, installed a couple of doors, a dropped ceiling with recessed lights, a TV and interlocking rubber floor mats. We painted the cement walls bright yellow and bingo – a home gym. The only thing left is mirrors. Here is a step-by-step (budget conscience) guide to how we did it.
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 receivers up in the basement, ran speaker wire to the speakers upstairs and presto! 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. and are very happy with our purchase! The app is very intuitive and easy to use.
