Tuesday, December 07, 2010

That ive practicly become a single mom while my man works crazy hours since he's climbing the buisniess ladder and gained more responsability, so while he struggles to get it all together and get up to speed at work, I do the same at home, alone, AAALL day. Cudos to all you single moms out there you are BAD ASS! LOL. But the real issue is my 5month old have decided to turn night into day, and i still have to get up at 06 with my 2year old, and between doing housework, running errands, playtime, playdates and activities i have no time to eat or drink, or exercise, altho I am losing weight, this is not how I want to lose it. Its not healthy and i have no energy.. So i wont track it. I miss working out but when the kids are in bed for the night I crash too, because I know from midnight it's another day. Im hoping my baby gets it soon and starts sleeping again bacause I am DONE. I'm a zombie.. So, theres my update :(

Hugs to all my team mates and gorgeous friends!

Im off to take another painkiller. My head screeeams!!

    I find the double buggy works really well - I get a lot of walking in that way. There are some great books out there that can help with the sleep issues with your wee babe.

    All the best (ouch, just did an eye watering, jaw cracking yawn - I need more sleep too)

    The 5 month old will get things worked out with your help. Set a schedule for both children and yes, you may have to let the younger one cry for a while. But at the end of the road is your sanity and health. I know it can be done. I know it is hard. You have my blessing on what you are doing. Rest when you can and as you play with the young ones, use them as weights- leg lifts with the 2 year old on your feet. My kids loved that way back when. Rock the 5 month old by doing twists. That way you get work outs in and tire out those two along the way!

    (((hugs))) You're in a hard stage of life. I don't know how old your children are, but I do know that it gets easier. Hang in there!

    Do what you can, don't worry about the rest. I agree with sunny238 to try and have a bit of a schedule going, but sometimes even that feels impossible. I first started my exercise at the beginning of this year by dancing with my middle girls, then 7 and 9. They loved it and reminded me every day that we needed to dance. It got me moving.

    I'm in a similar situation, my husband recently deployed and we decided I would stay home with the kids...so kudos to you right back! You are BAD ASS as well, lol. My secret is I found that I have to exercise and eat right. If I don't, I don't have the energy to keep up with everything and both of mine are under 3, so I have a LOT of messes to clean up. Get a routine going, even if it's not on a strict schedule, you'll find you do the same types of things around the same time of day each day. Once you get that going you can start to see where you can fit some exercise in. Maybe a set of situps while you play with the kids on the floor, or a little bit of cardio while the kids nap. Good luck figuring out what works for you. Let me know if you want any more tips/tricks. I have another friend who's been doing this for 5 years, and she was pregnant for about 2 of those years, lol....she is one amazing woman!
