Best Gift a Sparker could get

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

I recently ranted about how I was so irritated at having to stop my workouts every few minutes to deal with my kids. I wasn't getting the workout I wanted and was leaving the session far more stressed than I started. Don't get me wrong, I love my kiddos and I have a great time doing things with them, but sometimes a girl needs a little space and a little breathing room.

For my birthday my DH coordinated with his family and they all pulled together to get me a gym membership to a place with a daycare. Now I can finally get the full no stops workout that I crave, start working towards some of my goals (a new best 5k time) and shower in peace right when I finish - not when baby takes her nap. Much better than the "stuff" I would have received otherwise.

Now to find the best time to go that works with everyone's schedule and making it part of the routine!
