For Annie, being a wife, and a mother to a toddler and a newborn is no easy picnic, trying to keep fit and exercise on top of that equals a disaster…
The following morning, I get dressed and head out to my monthly yoga class; why monthly? I can hear you say, well, that’s because there’s only one morning a month that I can get some time for myself and I had to beg my mum to come down to look after Joshua while I go. It’s not like I’m asking her to look after him every day is it? However, she thinks that she could be doing something much more practical such as rearranging her book collection than looking after her grandchild while I prance about doing yoga, as she puts it. I mean, she has got a point, I’m not as good as I use to be – I can hardly touch my toes let alone do a crouching tiger or whatever it’s called. Plus my leggings are the same ones I use to wear before I was pregnant with Joshua and my muffin top continues to try and break free and expose all of my jiggly bits as soon as I raise my arms to do a stretch, and if that wasn’t embarrassing enough I somehow managed to sprain my hamstring as I maneuvered myself into one of those crazy positions where your legs and arms are all tangled up. I swear the fifty-seven-year-old lady next to me was able to get into perfect position but there was me wobbling all over the place while beads of sweat trickled down my forehead and seeped into my eyes. They felt like they were on fire, but there was nothing that I could do about it as my hands were woven into some strange pose.
