So I have been feeling like reorganizing and have also decided with some help from others that exercising needs to be a priority in my life. So we are moving the elliptical out to the front toy room temporarily until I am in a groove and routine. I hate that it is central to our living space but now that Henry has pretty much dropped his morning nap it is impossible for me to fit a workout in the am without waking up really early. By moving it out here I am able to patrol the two boys while getting my groove on. Ed has been very supportive and put shelving in the guest room closets....the guest room will not work as a toy play area too. Lately when Charley has friends over they spend most of their time hiding out in there. So hopefully this will work. I am worried about cleaning up with everything in there and I know it will be dragged throughout the house. I used to just open bins and drawers and wander the house and toss...I could probably play for the NBA..so now it will take a greater effort but I told Charley that we are going to take clean up breaks from time to time. So we'll see. I have been working on slowing down with the kids and so it should be just fine.
I was actually surprised that the elliptical doesn't look as massive and ugly as I thought it would. I figure I can get a workout in during the first hours of the morning and then hope to get a nice walk with the boys outside too. I need to get my butt in gear. It is time. The nursing has stopped, the metabolism is getting slower, and it will help my mood also! I know it! So here are the before and after shots of our reorganization.
