goodbye, gym

Gym OOTD - 1I am a gym goer. I have been for twelve years. Going for a workout is the only part of my day that I get to be selfish. It is there that I can tune out the world and concentrate on bettering myself both physically and mentally. It never fails to bring me out of a bad mood, and always guarantees to enable a good sleep at the end of the day. It has always been one of my favourite pastimes.

Gym OOTD - 2I was recently told at 30 weeks that I had to stop going to the gym. For the last five years of our marriage, it has served as many date nights, a shared interest, a ton of humorous conversations, a mood lifter, and an overall constant routine in our lives. Now, it will remain a thing of the past and not-so-distant-future. 

Gym OOTD - 3These photos were taken to commemorate my last visit to the gym, at nearly 7 months into my pregnancy. In fact, it was at the gym where I had discovered that we were going to have a baby! I had taken a pregnancy test in the bathroom stall, not thinking at all that it would be positive. After seeing the results, I cried and cried, sent a picture to my husband, called my mum and sister, then had a workout. I will never forget that, and find it quite funny today.

So, goodbye friend. Until it is medically safe to meet again. (Above is my bump at 15 weeks. That was my first visit back after 11 weeks of morning sickness.)

  4. Awe! You’ll be back soon! Ten weeks (give or take) isn’t that far if you end up waiting until EDD anyway. My great friend had the same thing happen! Now she has a little nugget (5 months old) who watches her run on the treadmill or goes to gym-baby day care lol :) Cute bump, too!!!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
