A Little Piece of Me

Breakfast was over, both boys were napping & I decided it was time for me to find the gym. For those who knew me before I had my 2 boys you know I was once a gym rat. I would spend at least an hour a day there 4-6 days a week. But then I had children & the time to get to the gym became few & far between.

Tomorrow marks 6 weeks since I had my surgery & gave birth so it was time. I chose to do the stairclimber (the one like rotating stairs) & figured I could handle 30 minutes since I used to do this all the time. Magazine in hand, level 5 chosen & I'm climbing away. So far so good. Then 7 minutes in, my thighs started to tremble & I couldn't believe I used to do this for up to an hour. My how things have changed. Well I made it the whole 30 minutes, was drenched in sweat & couldn't be happier that I felt a little like the old me even if it was only for a short time. I can't wait to get back to the gym again hopefully to run this time. Hope you feel a little like your old self once in awhile too.

Just wanted to leave you with this photo taken of Joey & me to celebrate his 6 weeks of life.

Good for you Cathy! I don't know how you do it all. I stay home, only have one baby and have a treadmill in my basement...but it rarely gets used! :-)

Good for you Cathy! It is definitely hard to get to the gym. Thankfully, my gym has a kids club and they love it. They only take kids older than 6 months though. I love the picture. He is so cute.
