1. I joined a gym. Really. And I even did my first work out there. Our county has several really good gyms and it’s a really small county, so there are two really close to my house. Their annual fee is reasonable, but I wasn’t ready for that commitment. As a pilot program, they are currently offering a three month membership that is only a couple dollars more per month than the annual, so I jumped on that today. As long as I go to the gym at least 7 times over the three months, it’s a better deal than paying the daily rate. I did 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on a stationary bike, and a wee bit of lifting. I may not be able to move tomorrow.
2. Today I also received the gift of time. That’s a gift that I will take any day. One of the preschool moms offered to take Shoo home after preschool for a couple of hours, which gave me the time to workout, run to the grocery store, and eat lunch. I’ll return the favor next week, which is actually a gift too as Shoo and his friend will entertain each other and I can get household chores done. It’s a win/win all around and I’m so thankful that Shoo’s preschool class this year is so awesome.
3. I was wrong. Moore County is actually the second smallest county in Tennessee. The smallest is Trousdale. Yes, my husband corrected me this morning and yes, he is a geek. At least his love of travel to visit places like that coincides with my desire to run a race in all 50 states. The nice thing about Moore County being small is we’ll be able to get out of the county to get a beer while we are visiting. ;o)

Did you say beer?
Congrats on joining the gym! I'm sure you will get plenty of use from it.Hope you enjoyed the "you" time today.
A good 3 things! Yea for time. Something every mom needs!
That is very nice that you and the other mom can trade off watching the kids!
Yeah, I heard "beer" and came running on in. ;)I hear you on getting a few solitary hours. Excellent on having people you can trust with your kids! That little bit of time can sometimes bring you from the brink of insanity back to normal.
Enjoy the gym!
Way to go on joining the gym! Hopefully you will find it accommodating and well worth the money!
Nothing's better than the gift of time. Yay!
Enjoy the gym and "you" time!
Good job on the gym membership. I hope you feel like you're getting your $$'s worth out of it. I enjoy getting in mine and doing something different everyone once in a while. need to do more weights, though, myself.
Awesome stuff! Way to go on the gym membership and the extra time!I want to say that it is near Tullahoma which was beginning to sprout as a developing city which = beer.
The gym's not too bad. It keeps me running when the thought of running outside is too depressing. And I get to swim year round which is a definite bonus.Hope you enjoy yours!
The kiddo trade sounds like a great deal!
