I am still struggling to balance my work obligations with my Spark time but I will get there. I am loggin' my food and getting in my fitness. I am trying to get in the bed by 10 and I don't know how people cook, clean, exercise, do challenges, write blogs, walk dogs, feed kids, keep employers happy and manage to drink 8 glasses of water while running back and forth to the bathroom and still get 8 hours sleep.

I did manage to eat dinner before 9:30 so, I am making progress. Maybe I can update my challenges today and read more of the blogs I follow. I was supposed to put up the tree today but that went by the wayside. I brushed my teeth so there's that! emoticon for me!!!

I hope you are fairing better than I am!!! XOXO

    Woman, you are KILLING IT! i hear you on the cooking bit. i have been trying to choose a day when i know i won't be too busy, and making things in large batches to freeze for later. especially if i can use my instant pot. i am unashamedly obsessed with that thing.
    keep going, you got this!

    It is crazy in this day and age to try to fit it all in one day! You are doing a great job (although you're totally exhausted) and I continue to admire how you continue to make you a priority. Hang in there! You are doing a good job at everything but like LOVIJO20 said: progress, not perfection!!!

    I agree, it's not easy to get it all done. One must do the best she can. Keep your eye on the prize!

    I have the answer for some of us anyway.

    We can leave "keep employers happy" off the list.
    Then abracadabra! 8 extra hours plus commuting time if any.

    LOL Yeah, I'm retired and I heartily recommend it . Hang in there!
    Seriously, I admire all you younger women who are doing as much of those activities as possible WHILE holding down a job.

    My only regret is that I didn't have my AHA moment 20 years sooner.

    Thank you for pointing me to those videos. I will check them out. I WANT YOUR ARMS!

    Having been both places, I will say it's almost easier to get-ER-done in your current shows. You know you have to do it all, and fairly on schedule or it will all unravel--so you just do it. When there's not so many obligations it's way too easy to say, oh I can do that later. But Sparking, yeah, it does eat up some time for sure.

    I totally get where you are coming from! I could not imagine trying to do all this if I was still working. Maybe that's why it finally all clicked... I had more time to devote to my self and my health! I have no doubt that you will figure it all out! You are doing fabulous!
