Some days, the baby doesn't sleep overnight, or only sleeps in 1.5 hour increments.
Some days, the toddler is cranky, or moody, or overly sensitive to all forms of emotion.
Some days, I'm just too annoyed with things to want to workout.
Those days are the days when I need that 20 minutes of "me time" to work my ass off and sweat out my frustrations. There were a couple days this week that I just didn't feel like working out. I was tired and Connor has been really hard, not to mention Kylar has decided to stop sleeping during the day and insist on being touched constantly. As a result, I've been shorter tempered than I'd like and ridiculously tired. I have had to force myself to workout. You know what, though? After my workout I always feel better. Tired, gross, and sweaty, but my mood is always much better and I feel like (no matter how hard the kids were) I accomplished something.
It is now day 5 of a 6 day workout week. I have completed 3 days of strength training, 3 ab workouts (ow...), and 2 cardio days. Tomorrow, I cardio and then I get a day off. Honestly, on the days off, I feel like I'm missing something or forgetting to do something important. Not to mention, it's an extra challenge to motivate myself to workout Sundays, after that day off.
Here's the thing, I can't expect change to just happen. Change requires work and effort. I'm putting in the time now to see the results in the future. Sunday is my next weigh-in/measurement/fit test. I'm not expecting a lot from the scale or measurements because I've been eating like crap this week, but I can feel myself getting stronger and I'm excited to see my improvements in that regard. I guess we'll find out soon enough!!
