For many years I was a member of a gym, like ever since high school.  And while I’ve always known the importance of exercising and staying fit, going to the gym wasn’t something I particularly enjoyed doing.  As a wife and now mom there are just so many other things (laundry, meal planninggrocery shopping, etc.) that need to get done.  My husband on the other hand could spend hours at the gym.  He loves to workout.  Our approaches to the gym were very different.  I wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible. Before we had B, spending an entire Saturday morning at the gym was his idea of a good time, not mine.  I would anxiously watch the clock and think about all the things I needed to get done before I could do some actual weekend relaxing.  It happened to work out perfectly that I was 8 months pregnant when we moved and talked about switching gyms.
