Desiree Fawn: Gym Member

I am officially a member of a gym.

Starting Monday morning I have my first of six appointments with a personal trainer to get started. Then I'll be on my way to becoming a gym pro -- classes, cardio, strength training, spinning!

I'm a pound and a half away from my pre pregnancy weight and I want to start toning and really getting into shape -- time to become less... squishy, I suppose.

I've been wanting to join a gym for a while but since Gretchen is always with me I thought it would be impossible. This gym, however, has a really great little daycare with qualified staff, and since I'll be in the same building as her, I think I can handle her being away from me. I think she might even enjoy being around some other kids -- they always make her smile so much! The staff was really nice and said that since I am nursing, if Gretchen was hungry while in their care they would come and find me so that I could nurse her -- such a bonus (for the mother who has visions of her inconsolable child in the arms of a stranger for two hours). I think this will be good for me as well. I still won't leave her with anyone but my own mother (and Ryan, of course) but being in the same building isn't as panic inducing.

This will be good for me and good for Gretchen -- fabulous!
Peace, mes amis. Stay tuned for details after Monday!

Do any of you go to the gym? Do you use their childcare facilities? What do you like/disklike about being mamas at the gym? What is your favourite workout?

I'm sure I'll be running down to the daycare a million times during my first session -- I'm lame like that!

What a treat! I always have to remind myself of that last AP principle: balance. This is a great way to find that. Kudos!

congrats on continually meeting your weight loss goals! i'm not a mommy, but i do so love the gym, with my current fav being lap swimming. i do all sorts of little drills that make the work out pass so quickly :) oh and the stair mill is a killer workout too!

I go to Curves which is awesome, but unfortunately they don't have a daycare, so I have to leave the boys every time. That's why I end up going at 6:30 am because dh is still home. But blech! I'm not a morning person...

The daycare at the place where I'm going is only from 9-12, so it will force me to get up and get moving in the morning! I WILL be a morning person!
