If you can just sing that title to the tune of "Notorious" by Notorious B.I.G., that would be ideal. If only the title would just sing it to you.
We drove to a farther YMCA this morning so the kids could have a little variety by playing at a new kid's area, but mostly for me. I usually use one hour of childcare, giving myself an hour workout and then leaving myself sweaty, smelly and unkept the rest of the day. I get my shower when they go to bed at night.
This time, I indulged in using 1 hour and 35 minutes of kid care so I could run a quick 5k on the treadmill and then relax in the sauna, steam room and hot tub, followed by a shower where I could shave my legs, wash and dry my hair and apply makeup. Just because.
I've been looking forward to this morning all week, and it was totally appropriate it took place on a Friday to cap off the week well.
We first discovered these additional amenities and really fancy locker room when we visited their pool for family swim last weekend and I vowed I'd be back.
We're not planning to keep this membership over the summer, as our main priority in joining was strictly to use the pool with the kids on the cold winter weekends of boredom. That, and we wanted to keep them comfortable in the pool since swim lessons would be an epic disaster with either of them. When spring arrives, we'll switch to our outdoor pool and I'll just run outside. Until then, I'm living it up. Because man... I could totally get used to that sort of morning full of relaxation.
Heartbreak and Healing
