I asked Hubby if I could get an ipod yesterday. I'm behind on the times and I know most 3 year olds now have one, but I never really had any use for it until now. I need music back in my life. I've always been musical, artsy and creative. I LOVE a good cd and have many of them in itunes on our mac. The only problem is I don't even have a cd player now to listen to the radio. I think I would rather have that on than the TV most of the time. And especially when I heard Gavin Rossdale's new song, "Love Remains the Same" (It's the song that plays on the commercials for the Biggest Loser and the new Nicholas Sparks movie coming out Nights in Rodanthe). I fell in love and just like that my love for music was reintroduced. There's nothing that inspires me to do something more than good music.
So I say all that to say I'm convinced that if I could find time to exercise, the pounds would melt off. AND if I had an ipod, I could enjoy it when I exercise on my own (because you ARE going to be home early enough this week, aren't you, sweety?!). I've got to find a way to exercise with three kids...I thought about the double stroller and the snugli. I'm still trying to figure out how I would work that one...The treadmill is no use with two curious toddlers. I can just see Chicken getting on it while I'm jogging and flying across the room, or even better yet, UNDER the treadmill and coming back around as a little flat cartoon character. It would be chaos although definitely a workout to keep them off of it.
Anyone have any better ideas? No gym's to join here...at least none that we can afford and I don't want to put them in a gym with daycare because of winter germs that are going to start going around soon. HELP!
