We recently decided to add our little peeps to our gym membership. Conor and I both love to work out - and love our gym. We've been members since we got married - and each day it's what keeps our minds, hearts, and bodies strong. We both agree it makes us better parents. For the last few years I have gotten up every morning at 5am so I could hit the gym before Conor headed out for work. It was worth every sleepless moment.
NOW, I get to go with the kids in the middle of the day. Cal Fit has a great program for our little athletes with "active hour," games, swim lessons, face painting, playgrounds, coloring.. you name it. It's a great way for them to socialize with other kids AND it's AMAZING to have a break in the day for us all. In fact, it's heavenly.
Seriously, I find myself working my tail off in spin class and smiling like a crazy person (is this why no one sits on the bike next to me =). It's like I have DIED and gone to mommy heaven. I know my kids are being taken care of beautifully, they are happy, and having a fantastic time. There are no words to explain what a little break in the day/routine has down for all of us. All I can say is the smiles are contagious! ;)
Happy Ally and Mommy
Also, the weekends have been a blast too. We're finally able to go as a complete family... something that was very important to us and long overdue. I cannot recommend this enough to other families who have the option. It's been the best decision we have made to date. The kiddos talk about it non-stop AND they are learning healthy habits they will carry with them the rest of their lives. We LOVE it!
Playing outside the gym - can't wait to get inside!
We hope you all had a great weekend! Happy Monday!
