My walk and shower are my "me" time. I get up early, get out of the house, pray while I'm walking, greet my fellow walkers at the park, enjoy watching the jackrabbits, lizards, and birds hop, scurry and fly across the desert, and listening to the sounds of the birds and the cicadas.

Me time: when my kids are in bed at 8pm every night until I can't keep my eyes open! I can go for a jog/walk, read a book, write letters and e-mails, watch a movie or take a hot bath... in silence!

"Me time" in my house can be a bit elusive at times since I have 4 kids 9 and under that are homeschooled! I make sure that every day I make time to sit down and do something I enjoy or that relaxes me. My current mainstays are:

~Shopping (much to my husbands dismay, I have a LOVE of shoes that seems insatiable).
~Reading though not as much in recent months as I'd like.
~Playing a game I enjoy. It feels wrong to play Dance Central without my kids, but I tell them it's my exercise (the truth, just fudged a little) and they can play later.

Either way, I try to make time where I'm not being "mommed" to death and just tune it out. As long as no one's bleeding or dying, they are more than capable of entertaining themselves for an hour or so each day.emoticon

After my daughter goes to sleep, I take a friend and go for a walk. We get our exercise and our chance to have some adult time. Tonight we walked for about an hour.

I am a single mom of an 8 year old boy. Finding "me time" can be difficult at times but here is something that I've found to really work for both of us. Between 7 and 8 I will let my son watch a show on tv or put in one of his favorite movies. While he's watching his show I pull out my Wii balance board, turn on the ipod and I've created my own 30-45 minute step aerobics! It seems to be a good balance of each of us getting to do something that we want at the same time without any conflict. Has anyone else tried anything similar to this? I'm always open to new suggestions.

if you want your life to change... your choices must change, and today, is the best day of your life to begin

I really struggle on finding me time. When I think I can get a few minutes, the kids seem to take it away from me and make me angry and turn it negative for me. Does anyone struggle with this and what do you do to stop it. I find that I I do not even try sometimes because it isn't worth the feeling I get when it gets ruined:( any suggestions are appreciated.

It is really hard to put myself first, but today I walked outside with a friend for 60 minutes. Considering it is 50 degrees in NH today it was wonderful. The chatter with the friend along the route made the minutes go by really fast too. :)

Spent a couple of hours swimming today with the kids at the school pool along with breaststroke for 45mins. Feeling great, and clothes fitting better, the scales aren't moving much yet though.

I am a stqay-at-home mom so I guess I have ME time almost every day, except when doing chores or going to appts. I guess it is ME time when I go it alone, lol. I guess spending a little time tracking my calories and surfing the message boards is ME time. Just wish I could do some mindless stuff. But it will all be worth it.

I met up with a girlfriend I haven't seen since I was a teenager and we had lunch together, came home and touched base with other friends overseas, went and watched my kids play t-ball, then exercised for a half hour on my Exercycle. So all in all an emoticon day! emoticon

I was able to get in a 3 mile walk and the best part was listening to my favorite music while I walked. Best part of this was getting to spend time on me.
