Right now it is 11:00 a.m.   I am still in my p.j.'s sitting on my bed with my 6 month old not so happily playing next to me, and my three year old bouncing around the room.  What I would really like to be doing is sweating my butt off (hopefully literally).

I've been waiting since I sent my 3rd grader out the door this morning to school to have my workout, but princess baby is not cooperating.  So here I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself.  I have obligations later today and tonight, and this is pretty much it.  If I can't fit it into the next couple hours it's not going to happen.

I love that I'm  a mom.  But I hate the fact that I don't have any time that is just for me.  Unless the baby falls asleep, and the toddler is occupied, I spend every second caring for them.  Usually I try to do two workouts a week at night, so Mr. Handsome can help, but that won't work tonight, or tomorrow night, so here I am trying to beg, borrow or steal enough time to take care of myself.  I would easily take my 3 yr old to the daycare at the gym, but I don't feel like I can take my 6 month old yet.

Gotta run.  My little angel is fussing.  :)


  1. I have to go to the gym at 5am if I want to get my work out in. I can use the gym daycare but it costs money that I don't have.

    Good Luck getting your workout in!

  2. I know how you feel, I finally had to accept the fact that at-home workouts were the only kind I'd ever have any chance of getting in, and so have invested in things I need for those.
    (Yoga mat, Wii Fit Plus, workout videos, dumbells, etc.)

  3. Oh yeah, I remember the days. I don't think mothers are given enough credit for the jobs we do...although it's the most fulfilling thing for sure. Kiss your little angel for me!

  4. do situps with the baby in a bouncer beside you...and get a sling and a couple of walk away the pounds tapes...you will be sweating in no time. Who needs weights when you have a baby strapped to you.
