Oh yes, you read that correctly. It’s the return of the gym selfie! Isn’t it funny how popular gym selfies have become? We’re out there photographing our sweaty, no-makeup selves in the wee hours of the morning or tired hours after work like our own private paparazzi.
Hey, I’m not bashing it. Guilty as charged!
Ethan is over a year old. I should be able to leave him with someone other than his father or his grandparents, and that person should be able to handle it. Right? I figured it was time to give gym child care another shot.
*I had a falling out of sorts with my gym’s child care about 5-6 months ago, or something like that, so I’ve really really really missed my gym workouts.
I was so happy to see new staff in the kids area. The two ladies were sweet, and they actually seemed to care about my son. Amazing! When I picked him up, they told me how cuddly and well behaved he was. Ethan was also the only kid there. Yaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyy!
I don’t want to get too excited about a full return to the gym just yet, but needless to say, we’ll be back. I don’t think I’d ever been so happy to use an elliptical.
In other news, Ethan has been a handful lately. Literally. He’s upped his screaming and his tantrums, but, when he’s not pitching a fit, he’s perfectly content to snuggle in my arms. I’m not one to ever turn down snuggles, but lemme’ tell ya – this kid gets heavy!
After the gym yesterday, I was carrying Ethan upstairs, and he just passed out in my arms. Hmmm… okay. That was odd. I sat down in the glider in his nursery and let him have a little mini nap. Growth spurt? Teething? Still achy from his vaccinations last week?
- What are some of your favorite quickie gym workouts? I just did 20 min + cool down on elliptical, then leg press, leg extension machine, and stability ball bridge lift with roll-in. I’ll stay a little longer once I feel more comfortable.
