Here's my story in brief:
SAHM. Pregnant. Two young kids (toddler and preschooler) who don't nap or go to daycare. No budget for childcare or gym fees. Too sleep deprived to exercise in morning before kids awake or night after kids go to bed.
Want treadmill in a place where I can use it while also keeping an eye on the kids while they watch TV, do a craft, play, etc. Right now treadmill in unfinished, dingy, dirty basement, so not ideal.
Choices for location:
My Bedroom: Got a TV in there so kids could watch. I could workout when I wake and take a shower while the kids watch cartoons and play in their rooms. But it's on 2nd floor and will be giant PITA to move. Also, Hubby may be less likely to use it there. Also, I have trouble sleeping and turning my bedroom into an exercise room may not be the best cure for my insomnia.
Living/Dining Room: Within eyesight of TV, art table, and playroom, so easy to keep an eye on the kids and keep them entertained. But I'd still have to cart the kids upstairs to shower after my workout. Also, it's an eyesore and a PITA to move, so most of our guests would see it. (We could move it for major/big/fancy parties into the office, but wouldn't bother for casual get togethers.)
I know this seems like a ridiculous problem, but I keep wavering and Hubby won't move it until I'm certain where I want it. What would you do?
