Fit Friday

A lot of people ask me how I’m able to get my workouts in during the day. I’m not going to lie…it’s tough. I love working out so I don’t usually (I do have some days where the last thing I want to do is workout) have to push myself into doing it but with the boys running circles around me (literally) finding time can get tough. Typically, I workout while Baby Chaos is napping and Little Man gets computer time or watches a cartoon and sometimes he joins me in working out. But sometimes, I don’t want to wait to workout until 10:45. Some days I get up and am ready to get my workout on by 9:30 (yes, I have to workout in the morning. If I wait until the afternoon…it doesn’t happen). On those days, I set the boys up with some coloring or blocks to try (key word here is TRY) to keep them entertained. And those activities usually keep them entertained for all of 5 minutes and then, the boys join me. Which I love. I try to encourage them to join in my workouts. It’s actually really entertaining to watch and makes me laugh while my workout is making my muscles want to cry.
