Back To It

Today I did something I haven't done in close to two years--Pilate's!! I used to love my Pilate's classes and would go at least 3 times a week. But once I got pregnant with Campbell I was surprised how quickly I couldn't quite keep up with my workouts. I got out of breath so quickly on the elliptical and when I was doing yoga/pilates, I really struggled to do a lot of the moves even though I hardly had much of a bump at all. I kind of just gave up and went for walks instead. Since our gym membership was never getting used, we canceled it. But recently I've been wanting to get back into it so we renewed this week.
It felt so great to do that again. I am not near as flexible as I used to be. It's actually quite shocking how tight I am. And some things I used to be able to do with ease are harder to do now but I was actually able to keep up pretty decently. I'm planning on attending the yoga/pilates classes a few times a week and I'm looking forward to it. It's nice to do something good for myself.
After I finished up at the gym I came home, ate lunch, then got ready to head to the pool. I had a babysitter come and watch Campbell for a few hours for me. Now that he's not in MDO anymore this may be my new little routine. I have learned how important it is for me to get just a few hours a week of alone time. It totally changes everything for me and I really need that time. I know you other Mom's out there can relate! Between the Pilate's and the pool with one of my favorite pool friends, I felt like Kara today--not Momma--and it was kind of refreshing!
Madison better watch out. Campbell is trying to move in as Ivy's new best friend :)
