So I was thinking, with Luke just turning three months (pictures to come!), I think it is time I head back to the gym! I still have some stubborn pregnancy pounds hanging on that I'm ready to be rid of but I don't think they are going anywhere on their own. And I have missed my gym time and me time very much these past few months. But I needed a little inspiration and motivation to get my butt in gear.
Aren't they cute!? They happen to match some of my work out clothes and we all know that dressing like we know what we are doing is half the battle! Bonus part is I got them on sale :) These are a cross training shoe which is perfect for me because I usually either do cardio on the elliptical or treadmill, weight training or group classes consisting of strength training & cardio combos. Unfortunately I can no longer run more than a few minutes due to plantar fasciitis I developed several years ago. No fun because running is the best thing to get in shape fast!
I tried out my new shoes last week and took Callie and Luke to the Kids Club at the gym while Keira was at VBS. I was afraid Callie would be reluctant to go since it has been a while. She did great and had a preschool buddy there to play with. Luke was happy chillin' in the swing when I picked them up and Callie didn't want to leave!!! Even though I had a short time there it was so worth it. I definitely felt invigorated after some time on the elliptical! Now the problem will be trying to go on a regular basis; my gym requires reservations for infants in the childcare center and they can be made up to 48 hours in advance. I will be darned if the last 2 times I have called they are already booked for the time slot I wanted! Its over 100 degrees here this week so I will NOT be exercising outdoors!
I'm hoping to get in a groove and have a good workout schedule down. In the meantime, at least I have cute shoes, right!? What motivates you to get moving?? I'd love to hear!
