So the last 2 weeks or so I have been L.A.Z.Y.!!!! I wish I could just over come this. Im sure its exhaustion of a clingy baby and the lack of sleep I get. I used to work out 2x a week. Now working out I mean strength train or use my treadmill. I have gotten some form of walking in most days but to me that is not enough. I don’t see walking really as working out but more me time since I don’t get any me time.
I told my trainer that I would have to stop her program since we are moving and the cost is more per month. But she will still motivate me. I have absolutely no motivation. My eating is getting better but my work outs are another thing.
How do I over come this? My poor treadmill that I just had to have has just sat there for a few weeks. I enjoy using it but I never have time. Tyler has baseball 2x a week and practice once a week. The house is not being cleaned because we are never around or Jordan wont let me put him down to do it. Its so hard to be consistant with anything at my house with a hectic schedule.
Hopefully things calm down after the move. I really need to get on a schedule and stick to it – which brings me to another issue…..
I cannot get Jordan to sleep through the night in his own bed for the life of me. Id try the cry it out method but we are in an apartment and the guy upstairs can hear. Now he says its not that bad and he has gotten used to Jordan’s screaming but still. Do I just need to get strict on myself and let him cry it out in his own bed when he wakes in the middle of the night?
I know why he does it too. Its because he has separation anxiety from me and its pretty bad. The only time he does good is if I drop him off and leave. But if he sees me and knows I am there and no going any where he will scream for me and need me to hold him.
I just wonder if I need to wait until we move to do the whole cry it out thing? Only because wont moving screw him up and make him not sleep through the night again in a new place? I don’t know. I just hope he starts sleeping soon and not in my bed but his own. I also hope that he starts having some independence ( but not too much ) to where he can play when we get home and be ok if I am not right next to him – watch this happens and I eat my own words because Ill miss him clinging to me! You can never win as a parent! LOL
