However, in testing my limits, I recently learned how far I can go before having a little breakdown. I rode The Fail Bike.
Here's the deal:
My kids don't want to go to sleep at their bedtime. They want to play. I spend a lot of evenings fighting with them to get them to go to sleep. My inner monologue is the text of this book:
So I watch the clock. I watch as I reach 8 hours until I wake up. Then 7 hours. Then 6. It goes on.
The alarm goes off at 4:30 am. If I want to workout and get to work on time, that is the time I must get my booty out of bed.
Well, after doing that for 3 nights in a row, I had a little physical breakdown on Wednesday. I was exhausted. I did my BBL workout in the morning, but there was no love. I didn't shake my booty with enthusiasm. I made Leandro sad.
|"My heart is breaking a little."|
This morning, I slept "late". I didn't workout. And, you know what? It's amazing how much better I feel.
Therefore, I'm going to re-evaluate my workout plan. There just isn't enough time to fit everything in. Plus, my children will only be little and cuddly for a short time. One day soon, they won't want to have anything to do with me and I'll be able to sleep as much as I want.
I'm not saying you should never workout. I just think sometimes balance is *really* important.
(BTW, I am planning a lunchtime run later. I am lucky to have that option).
Do you have scheduling obstacles with your workouts? Do you have problems like this? Are you able to make it work? I'd love to hear your stories...
