Monday Monday, Gym and Links

It's fall and it's the first year I don't have to get a kid off to school. It feels weird, at the regularly appointed school times, I feel like I have to be somewhere doing something, but I don't. So, I'm trying to find the time in my already stuffed schedule to get myself to the gym regularly.  Not wanting to look like a dork from the early 90's (which is the last time I had any time to myself), I thought a few tips on gym style might be in order (thanks to premium woman for the photo.) I still need a few things because the other day I had to put my gym clothes into a grocery bag. So, I'll be out today trying to find something suitable, in the meantime, take a look at our bead blogger links and see what they've been up to...
