Last night I really didn't want to go to the gym, but Tara Cain made me. She didn't tweet me saying "Get off the sofa, stop eating fatty, get down the gym!" She posted that this weeks Gallery theme was fitness.
Going to the gym is the only bit of me time I get at the moment (other than blogging) Baby man wont even let me go to the toilet in private. I don't like the thought of going to the gym, but when I am there I nearly always feel better for going. I had been doing an exercise class in the day with a lady who provided childcare whilst you worked out. Unfortunately middle man wasn't keen on this and wanted to join in. I found it less than helpful when I was trying my hardest to do a plank, and he mounted me saying "Giddy up Mummy!" So for now I have reinstated my gym membership and go late at night when I really want to be sitting watching the TV.
I am also hoping that the 20 minute walk to school will help improve my fitness. I have been enjoying our walks to and from school as it means that big man and I get to talk about his day. Generally he can't remember what he has done or who he has played with, but the play doh all over his jumper is usually a clue to one of the activities he has undertaken. I have impressed myself by walking on most days and have ony been caught out twice by underestimating the huge black rain clouds above my head.
So what do you do to keep fit? Do you pay gym membership just to feel guilty that you don't go? Do you have a favourite sport that keeps your body and mind active? Or are you a busy Mum that keeps fit just from running around after your little ones?
Here is a picture to prove I did actually work out whilst I was at the gym - although taking a photo of yourself exercising is very hard!
