I have a secret

I have been going to the gym Monday through Friday for 4 weeks now, and guess what? I love it!!! Perhaps it is because I love structure and routine. So once I decided that I would go immediately after taking the kids to the bus stop, that is what I have done. I live by the clock. I don't like to be late and get anxious if things aren't done at their usual time. So fitting the gym into a schedule works perfectly for me. I enjoy having a little time to myself, albeit only an hour to an hour and a half, but it is MY time. Sometimes dropping off Max is hard if he cried, but here he is when I tried to sneak a pic of him. He is just fine so I don't let that deter me at all.

And I am seeing results to boot. Small results, but results nonethless. No one else can probably even tell, but I see myself in the mirror before I shower and I am seeing the fruits of my labor which makes it even easier to keep going. So don't tell anyone my secret because the gym should be NO fun, but I look forward to it each day. A little time for me. I hope this doesn't count as selfishness.

I'm so excited for you! Every mom deserves and needs MY time. What a productive way to get it.

Love the new house. Your neighborhood looks like it will be great for the family. I love how the park is right there, maybe you won't have to put a swingset in the back yard. Keep us posted on the inside. can't wait,
