Goodmorning Gym

Oh how I've missed you....
Today was my first day back at the gym after having Emmerson 6 weeks ago. I packed my little gym back last night and set my alarm for 5am, although I knew my little bella would provide enough of an alarm at 430am for her feeding. (Who by the way has gained 4 lbs in 1 month!)
She woke up like clockwork and went right back to sleep after feeding so I could make my great escape.

We've joined a 24 hr Goodlife right near our house and the facility is pretty awesome.
I kept the workout on the easy side so I don't push it too soon. It's funny though how many times it popped into my head to slow things down so I don't harm the baby...which isn't in my belly any more :)

I stepped out 25 min on the stairmill and then did a short back & bi circuit. It was all I needed to be feeling like a new woman. And the (quiet; not rushed) shower afterwards was pretty glorious too.
It just felt so good to sweat again. I didn't even care that I forgot to pack gym socks or that my playlist kind of sucked. I'll be more prepared for tomorrow...

The best feeling though was coming home to find my sweet little family still fast asleep. This is what it's all about...taking care of me so I can take care of them. This is what I constantly encourage mom friends & clients of mine to do. By just taking this hour for yourself (even if it means getting up at 5am) you will be a much better wife & mother. And that's exactly how I already feel going into this day.
