Hanging in

Day 2 of the sugar-free campaign. So far, all is good.

Found at Canadian Tire on Sunday:


After I spent the month of September adapting Kettlebell exercises to use dumbbells.

They had two 5 lb kettlebells and 2 10 lb kettlebells on the shelf. I decided I could give the 10 pounders a good home. Tried them out with my Boot Camp routine tonight. Always fun to add something new into the exercise routine. It's like getting new toys.

Edit: For all the non-Canadian folk confused about why I was buying exercise equipment at a Tire store: The Canadian Tire Story. Actually, it was interesting for me too - I am just so used to the fact that Canadian Tire sells a variety of products, was interesting to read the history.

Hmmm, does the word "Tire" mean something entirely different in Canadian? Or do you have some really weird-ass vehicles up there that use kettlebells for wheels?


I too am surprised you found them there, but that's great that you did!

A place where Canadians deal with their spare tire???

Wow, never knew how entertaining it would be to mention Canadian Tire and fitness equipment...

I don't know the history (may have to look it up) - I'd assume it started out as tires & auto parts, then other hardware. And eventually their inventory expanded to be department-store like. Never know what you're going to find at Canadian Tire. I also got a 3-tier shoe rack there on Sunday, so I have a place to put my shoes and Husband can stop accusing me of booby-trapping the house.

I love shoes.

Canadian Tire is awesome. And I had no idea that they had those! I wonder if they'd notice at work if I slipped away to go buy some... :)

I am SO enjoying the questions about what Canadian Tire is. Oh Canada. What a nation.
