What would you do to get your way?

We just threw out our Christmas tree and in place of that spot I'd like to put my elliptical. Before the loveseat was in it's place but I kind of gotten used to the loveseat where it's at now. So instead of putting it back where it was before the tree I'd like my elliptical and my dh says no bc it will look too much of a gym (a tiny gym that is) he wants to keep it looking like a living room. I just told him this might just give me an incentive to move around. He said...we'll see.

What can I do to have my Thanks!

  • Move it yourself. Then when he gets home look so happy and say "look what I did". He wouldn't dare move it away.

  • Tell him its either that or he PAYS for a gym membership for you. and if he does you will be gone for at least 2 hours a day for 3-4 days a week.

  • Lol Do whatever you want, your house not mine but i would never put that in my living room. house or apartment should look like a house not a gym. If you had a extra room or garage put it there.

  • Put it where you want it, I can see how it will motivate you being there, ask him for his support.

  • I'm with him would not put exercise equipment in the living room. If you don't use it now where it is you won't use it anymore in the living
