Y I'm Giddy!

The kids and I went and joined the Y this morning. I've been dreaming of it for months and now that I'm making some extra money it's reality. I dropped the kids off and worked out (I'd almost forgotten how) and had a long, hot, wonderful shower in peace. Great water pressure and an endless supply of hot water. Yipeeee! I can already feel my sanity returning!

Add another word to Avrie's expanding vocabulary: "Mine". Now, why is that not surprising?

Last night I told Nolan we were going to go to the Y in the morning and he said (while scratching his chin) "Hmmmm, I thought that maybe we could go to the zoo after the Y". Exact words. What a hoot. We didn't go since it was nap time and a bit cold but we might venture over tomorrow to see the Polar Bear.

Yea! I'm so glad you did it! Did you take a class? My favorite is Bodyflow.

I just did the ellipticle and biked today...I need to look over the class schedules. Is Bodyflow Thai Chi? I have horrible, horrible knees and I can't do high impact...like the BodyPump. I'm excited to get back into Yoga though.

BF is Tai Chi, yoga & pilates. It's a great class, my favorite of all they offer.

Shannon said...

Nope! Don't want him waking up the kids if there is a small chance they sleep later than 7!!

Did you try the 7:15 class? I went to the 10:25 one today. It felt great!

Shannon said...

I didn't. We stayed up later than usual and I didn't wake up until 7:30! We went this afternoon but there weren't any classes so I just did the machines. Avrie hates the daycare...Nolan did too when he was her age and it got so bad he'd cry when he saw the building. I think Avrie will get over it and they haven't had to call me down yet. It's a bit easier for her being she has Nolan there too. She cries when I leave though =( She does that at sibling care at preschool too but she always loves it.
