Bootcamp 2.0 - The Home-body Version

I am such a home-body. Seriously, I just want to be in my little raised ranch in Townieville and nowhere else.  This is probably because
A. I know how much it costs to live here and I want to get my money's worth
 B.I am NEVER here and work the strangest hours possible and 
C.  The roomies are just so darn cute:
Seriously Cute! 
So I've been trying to work out more at home so that I can get some fitness in and some time here.  I've been doing Jillian's 30 Day Shred as I waited for Tina Reale's Bootcamp to start again.   I LOVE the YMCA in Schenectady and it is so close to work.  You  might remember that I claimed a little corner of the Y for my own and the named it the Grotto.  Going there in the morning, working out, then a five minute commute to work is a great option but just not one I'm into right now that my work schedule is keeping me late many nights.  When you lose and gain weight as seasons turn like I do, you collect an array of fitness equipment.  One quick scan around my house and I found what I will need for bootcamp:

Add in my new trusty binder:

And my personal trainer:

Seriously love this dog!

And I'm all set! A grotto of my very own.  Sure its not the full rack of weights, the four different kinds of kettle bells, or the weighted bars like I use at the gym, but as Tim Gunn says, "Make it work!"  I also don't have a bosu ball or a stability ball but I do have one of these:

That's right an overstuffed, hippy flowered ottoman.  This thing works my core like you wouldn't believe.  Who needs fancy equipment when you have a piece of furniture your cousin was throwing away and your mom generously recovered (that woman can do anything I tell ya!)

So I am attempting Bootcamp 2.0 The Home-body Version.  I hope to expand my grotto to include more official equipment (an ottoman on wheels is really not the safest thing to use) any sponsorships are greatly appreciated (kidding...sort of)
