every sunday night i plan out my workout schedule for the week and last week was no different.
monday morning after getting the two oldest off to school, i feed kawena oatmeal and rush off to the gym so i can run before a 10 am class. i pull into the parking lot and just as i am about to grab kawena, her oatmeal spews out of her mouth all over the front of her. i hate when that happens because i NEVER have anything in the car to clean up a mess of that proportion.
so, i clean her up using a gazillion baby wipes and strip her down to her bare nudies. i strap her back into her car seat and head home. by this point she is happy as a clam! i throw her into the bath tub where she splashes around, squealing with joy. you wouldn't even know that 20 minutes earlier she was vomiting all over herself for how happy she is.
the rest of monday she is fine and tuesday, no problem. so i think, it must have just been some freak thing. wednesday morning, after getting the girls off to school and music, i head back to the same gym for a core class and running. no joke, as i pull into the parking lot i turn to look at the baby, just in time to see her heaving up the scrambled eggs she just had for breakfast. unbelievable!! this time i don't even park, i just turn around a drive home, baby covered in vomit.
i just can't believe it! i call mitch on my cell phone to tell him the news. he just laughs at the whole thing! hmmmm, i'm sure glad someone is enjoying it, because i definitely am not! he adds, through a chuckle, "maybe you should try a different gym!" thanks!
i'm thinking, "this child is sabotaging my efforts to lose the last 10 pounds of baby weight. how will i ever get back to where i want to be if i can't even pull into the gym parking lot without having baby vomit show it's ugly face!?"
the rest of the week i just gave up on going to the gym in the morning, baby in tow. i know, that probably wasn't the best thing to do, but hey that's what i did! i had enough of it! i still made it to the gym wednesday and thursday night, though! i don't like doing that so much because it cuts into my mitch time, but i needed it!
post script: this morning i actually made it to the gym, the same vomit inducing gym. the whole time driving there i was keeping one eye on the road and one eye on the baby. thankfully, she was in the back happily chatting away. and she didn't even hint at vomiting as i pulled into the parking lot!
today, is a very good day!!
