Time Out for Theta Mom Thursday

Thursday, February 25, 2010
The goal of Theta Mom Thursday is to carve out one hour a month for yourself...without the kids!! Sounds easier than it actually is, but I'm up for the challenge, and so I'll be participating with other fantastic moms each month. Wanna join us? Click here for all the details! Come on, you know you want to!

I have 6 hours each week of alone time when my youngest daughter is in preschool. But the number of times that I actually use that time for myself is minimal. Time Out for Theta Mom Thursday has incented me to take the much needed and much deserved time for myself.

As with most years, I start slacking in the exercise department right around Thanksgiving. By February I am ready to rev up my fitness regime before bikini season rolls around. A few weeks ago I won a book as a giveaway on a blog I visit quite frequently, Katie's Nesting Spot and the timing couldn't have been more perfect.

This week I set aside some uninterrupted, ME time to browse the book and try some of the exercises. Since I love anything sleeveless in the summer, I want my arms to have some definition. Taking the time to start reading the book and doing some of the exercises has given me the motivation I need to keep going. Plus, I'm already seeing some results after just a few days of light weight lifting. Gotta love that!

Thanks, Theta Mom for giving me the inspiration to get moving!

Ahhh, exercising does feel so good, doesn't it! I made it to the gym one time today and my 30 Day Shred exercise video is giving me dirty looks for not unwrapping it yet!

Found you from Theta Mom's Time Out link up...Have a great day!

Oh you are good! Using your timeout for exercise! I sat my big old butt on the couch and took a nap! LOL

Time to take care of your fitness is health is very important. I just saw a recent picture of me, and my arms are not toned like they used to be. I may have to look up this book. Glad you had time for yourself. Following back. :)
