Big Fat Time Management Problem

Wednesday, December 02, 2009


Let's hear it for the working parents who rush to daycare, or rush home to the bus, then rush to do snacks, homework, laundry, cleaning, dinner.. then it's 10:00 at night!!! Where's that workout supposed to fit in again???

Let's do it in the morning, ok, let's see.. wake up at what. 4:00 am to fit in a workout so you can be done by 5:00, shower and get ready, done by 6:00 , just in time to get the kids up, dressed, fed and on the bus by 7:30.. IF YOU'RE LUCKY!!! And what if you have to get a baby to daycare, or be at work by 8 and you have an hour commute??? I'm not waking up at 3:00 am to get in a freakin' workout.

If I get home at 5:30 and do my workout right when I get home, I'm done by 6:30 and if the hubby cooks we eat by 7:30 or so and then we have some relaxation time. If I cook though, I can't fit in my workout until 8:30 or 9 since the food has to digest some.

Late workouts are where it's at I guess. But man, it's sure easy to put that work out off if you're feeling tired.

I guess that's why this is a journey. Time management, portion control, healthy choices. It's just not going to happen in a day, is it?

    Having kids certainly makes it more difficult to find time to do exercise. I think it takes some creativity. For example taking the kids for a walk... Anyway what I know is that when I exercise I have more energy and get more done in less time.

    Good luck!

    Wow, I remember those days. My son is now 17 and I still do a lot of running around for him. He hasn't wanted to get his own license. Smart guy, mom is a great chauffeur. Maybe hubby can surprise you with a babysitter a couple of times a month, or playdates are great in getting your children to be at someone elses house for a few hours. Whatever you choose to do, I wish you success in obtaining your goals.
