I'm a single mom staying at home with my daughter full time and going to school full time. While it sounds like I should have gads of time to excersize it doesn't always work out that way.
I try to ge tup as early as humanly possible (for me lol) and we go for a walk together. Then we eat breakfast, this is where most people go to work. I start cleaning up or heading out for playgroup. I tried working out here in the house with her right after our walks and it turned into mommy jungle gym and just got really frustrating for me. I even tried including her with her own mat and such but again, she was more interested in climbing on me lol It's hard when your trying to be everyone at once to take time for yourself.
I know some mom's that go to the gyms on their lunch breaks. Or right before they go home. Even some that go after the kids are in bed. I imagine with your schedule it's got to be really touch to find things to do. Is there a gym near some of her activities (the ones that are indoors and supervised by adults naturally?). Or maybe there is an early morning program at a community center that she could goto before school and give you time to get a quick workout in before work. There is always the right before bed workout too.. I used to do that before I had kids for some reason that was the time of day that just totally jazzed me. Not so much anymore lol
If you ever need any help let me know. I'd be happy to try to help you come up with some things, or just talk. Single parents gotta stick together ;)
