Time out for mom Theta Mom Thursday

Last week I accepted the challenge set forth by Theta Mom and decided every week from here on out I would steal 1 hour of time that is devoted to just ME!! And I kept my word.

This week Hubbs-to-be watched Baby DIVA while one of my dearest friends and myself took an exercise class. Now you might be thinking WTF? Why are you working out on your one hour of freedom?!? Well this is not your ordinary exercise class. Nope! It is Night Club Cardio . That is right. My friend and I got our rolls a flapping out on the dance floor and sweated it up!

It was so much fun! I haven't had fun exercising like that since I was a size 5 and living it up in the college life style! All the other participants were about our age (early 30's) and this made the whole event quite inviting. The facility is an actual club, during non "club" hours. The lights are turned off. The DJ starts a spinning. The disco ball is a twirling and all us ladies and gents are lead through a 60 minute shake down of our flubber! Seriously, it was so much fun and such a super workout. I am incredibly excited about it. I worked out. Got some good exercise. Fabulous conversation with my friend. And a whole hour devoted to just me!

And guess what?
I am going back next week!! Alone! Hubbs-to-be and Baby DIVA have their special time while I flab shake!!

Thank you Theta Mom for starting the Time out Thursdays for us moms. Sometimes we just need someone to remind us that to be a good mother to our children we also have to take care of ourselves, and that includes our sanity!!!

Before I take off, I just want to remind you that I have my fabulous My Little Pony Giveaway going on right now. It ends next Wednesday. So click HERE and get registered today to win this fabulous giveaway!
