I'm thinking my arms may just fall off

Last night I decided to hit the gym after the boys went to bed.  It's been about 2 weeks or so since I've gone and I knew it was time to get back up on that horse and continue with the "Blubber butt be gone".  My boys go to bed anywhere between 8pm and 8:30pm, and I got them off to bed and headed out the door.  Don't worry I didn't leave them alone, hubby did stay with them (although that's kinda like leaving them alone!).

I got to the gym and as I wondering again (each time I go I say the same thing) "why is there a million steps up to the doors of the gym?"  I mean seriously, by the time I get to the top I already can't breathe, so how is that supposed to make me want to go inside and work out?!  And then once I leave my legs are like jello and I'm scared to death that I'm going to fall all the way down those steps trying to get back to my car!

But I got inside the gym and caught my breath and then go on the dreaded elliptical.  After 20 minutes of pure hell I got off the elliptical dripping sweat and decided to also hit the weight machines.  I mean I was already dying so why not finish myself off right? After that I did the treadmill for a little longer and headed home.  When I pulled into the driveway and got out of the car I heard Avery (my youngest son) absolutely wailing.  I got to the front door and could hear him crying his poor heart out.  I opened the door and yelled for my husband.  He responded from the basement (playing the new final fantasy 13 game I agreed he could get) and I asked "did you not hear Avery screaming?" As I ran up the stairs to Avery's room. 

Avery was soaked in tears and immediately jumped into my arms.  I rocked him a little bit and gave him some juice and he laid back down in his bed. My husband came up and was like "no I didn't hear him."  Of course you didn't hear him, I mean I could hear him from the driveway, but noooo you couldn't hear him inside the house!  It reminded me why it's been 2 weeks since I went to the gym!

Now today my arms feel like they may fall off.  They are SO heavy and sore! LOL  I'm having myself a nice salad with a side of fruit for lunch and Avery is in the toy room watching Dora.  It's finally sunny outside and nice again (after 4 days of rain!) and I'm looking forward to walking up to get the boys from school and hitting the park for a little bit.

I was contacted by a company this morning wanting me to review their product and have a giveaway on my blog!  It took me by surprise but I'm really excited about it!  So make sure to follow my blog for your chance to win!  Just click that little "follow me" on the right side of the blog towards the top!

Hey Gal! I know about the pain of gyms! I've been to regular gyms, but I prefer Curves Circuit Fitness Center hands down!

Do you mind if I put y'all on my Prayer Line?

God Bless!
