Tonight I installed a rear facing child seat into my car. Want or need a full body workout? Install a freaking child seat into your car. Good grief. Forward facing is a whole lot easier than this rear facing nonsense.
I’m not sure why all car seat manufacturers don’t make all of their seats with the easy latch installation. You know the ones Click Click Push. This feature is usually only found on the more expensive seats. Well great. Sometimes you need a spare seat and really don’t want to shell out $100’s for that. So you get latch but it is far from the Click Click Push. No it’s struggle to get it clipped and then it’s a feat in strength getting it tight enough.
Let’s just say this installing this seat with the latch I had all my weight in the seat, I was pulling the strap tight through the belt path, and then yanking on the latch strap to get it tight enough. And, forget about getting the actual seatbelt to be tight enough in rear facing position. Well you can if you have a ratcheting piece, which I didn’t.
Seriously, this is when I wish the husband was home because I’m pretty sure he would of gotten it tight a lot faster than I did. I’ve decided that the seat will be staying in the car and not removed for a while.
On the plus side it’s a lightweight seat as in weighs maybe 10 pounds and also can fit 3 across the backseat, which is nice because even with the seat in the car you can still fit 2 adults in the backseat comfortably. Well if the seat was in the middle position. Unfortunately, my car doesn’t allow for the use of latch in the middle position so it would be a bit more cramped right now in the backseat. I’ll be looking for the seatbelt ratchet thing to allow for middle position use.
But seriously, after I was finished I had broken a bit of a sweat and was beyond glad to be done with it.
So thank you car seat for the full body workout I was not planning on tonight.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas hope it was spent with loved ones.
Have you seen this Adele, Hello Parody yet? The one where they talk about all of the exercise they aren’t doing, food they are eating, and just how unmotivated they are.
It’s hilarious. And, so my life. New year is approaching and I’m ready to get myself back to being completely motivated not just sometimes.
My gluteus are shaking every time I lunge. Check it out if you haven’t.
I’ve written about Thick to Thin several times. Well I’m writing to tell you about their loose fit Athlete pants.
I received them in the mail this week and the weather today was perfect for wearing some comfy sweats. I decided what better time than now to try them out. And, OMG love them. They are loose fitting, so soft, and warm.
I’m in love with these sweat pants I think I will be ordering another pair so that I have a pair to wear at anytime. No need to worry about a pair being in the wash. They are perfect to throw over my shorts from working out at the gym or in the case today bumming/working around the house.
They also have fitted pants with Athelte written down the leg, compression pants with different motivating sayings.
And, let’s not forget about all of the tops they offer from tanks, sweatshirts, to long sleeve tees.
