Moms get giddy over their baby's milestones: first smile, pulling up, crawling, walking, first tooth, and on and on. But another important first for fit moms is baby's first trip to the gym. As of today, The Boy is three-months old and now old enough to go to the gym's childcare center. Woo Hoo!
And so, I just made an appointment for The Boy in the childcare center so I could return to kick boxing class--I love, I miss, I want--but haven't been since early in my pregnancy. There was no problem getting him in and then when I hung up the phone I realized why: because today is Tuesday. The class I wanted to take is on Monday. Well, potentially, I saved myself from this uncomfortable situation. Alas, we will go to the gym anyway, even if all I do is wander the aisles between treadmills.
It's one thing to manage the postpartum body. Another to put up with the postpartum brain. Enough with getting my body back. I want my brain back!
