Mommy's Time Out


No, I didn't do anything bad.  I am not sitting in a corner.  I am joining Theta Mom for Time Out Thursday. 

How did I spend an hour of me time this month?

Sweating, stretching, and using muscles that I had forgotten I had.  I just renewed my gym membership yesterday.  I spent a lovely hour in the gym while my daughters were with the wonderful women in the child care there.  

Just walking in the doors yesterday was such a lift to my spirits. The smell of antiseptic, chlorine, and sweat tickled my nose.  Ahhh... I couldn't wait to get to work.

Whether I was on the elliptical, the stationary bike, or using the leg curl machine it was as though my body was remembering the shape it was once in.  I didn't have to multi-task, I didn't have to think, I didn't have to meet any little one's demands.  It was me time.


I am looking forward to more me time tomorrow.

Before I had kids, I was an avid gym chick! I went all the time and when I missed a day I would freak! Now I am lucky if I do anything...I need to use this as one of my time outs, too.

Thanks for playing along! Following you! :)

Good for you!! I am addicted to my elliptical machine, which I hop on while the kids are napping, and watch really bad reality shows like "Tough Love 2" :).

I need to get back into some sort of workout routine too! I am so good when the weather is nice and I can get out walking, but I totally slack in the winter!
