Famous Last Words

Before babies.

I joined a gym.

Go on.  Laugh.  I’ll wait.

You finished?

Okay then.

It’s only for May and June because we’re moving at the end of June.  But I had to do something.  Walking with a stroller ain’t going to bring my muscles back.  I have no muscles.  I am veal.  I miss muscles.  They are helpful for doing stuff.  Like walking. 

I feel old.  My body aches, I’m not flexible, I’m in a rut.  I know, I know, I gave birth two and a half months ago so I need to cut myself some slack.  But I hate feeling like this.

So I joined a nearby gym yesterday and even worked out!  It felt good, you guys, so good.  I did my thing on the elliptical for thirty minutes and then, even though I felt jiggly and gross, I mingled with all the sexy mamas (who wears make-up and jewelry when working out?!) on the main floor and worked out my legs.  I kept the weights really light because, honestly, I haven’t been in a gym since before Violet was born.

We’ll see how it goes.  I’m more interested in muscle tone than weight loss but, of course, I’ll monitor the weight loss as well.  I weigh 150 pounds right this second.  I started this pregnancy at 130 but, ideally, I should be at 125.

We’ll see how it goes.
