Have I told you that we sold our home last August? Well, we did. It wasn’t a big home and by most standards just a starter home with less than 1400 square feet. Through that sale we willingly downsized and moved into a town home with 842 square feet. Living in a small space has its ups and downs. Not living in a home of your own has its ups and downs as well. It has been an experience that is for sure!
One of the challenges of a small space is of course the lack of space. You have the things or keep the things you love and let go of the rest. That part doesn’t really bother me but what does make it hard is not having a space to myself.
In our previous home my husband and I each had our spaces or offices. We have none of that in our current place. We are even sharing one little closet which can get hectic each morning but we have learned to cope with it.
One of the things that I did in my own space in our previous home was work out. I’ve had to learn to be creative and adapt to my existing space. You might be surprised to know that is actually our foyer.
Yep, that is just a part of my little space. Here’s a little more of what it looks like. This little desk doubles as a vanity where I sit to do my makeup and hair every morning.
My little space from another view. Small, right? Yep, it is but I’ve been amazed at all I can get accomplished in this little space.
I can do push-ups. Autumn calls these the renegade row.
I can easily do lunges with weights.
And side lunges with weights.
And lots of jumping!
Is is possible to be fit when only having a small space to work out? Absolutely! Need some help getting started and figuring it out? Well, I’m your girl. I would love to help you. Just leave me a comment!
Have a fit and fun day!
