I think you have to make a plan B and focus on what you can do...Hylands Teething Tablets worked wonders for our son. For your food, you might consider looking at Tosca Reno's "Eat Clean Diet"; she has these cooler plans where you pack all of your food for the day into a cooler, and then when you want something to eat, you just eat from the cooler. You could do that with any diet, actually. Just pack all your food for the next day the night before, and it takes the guesswork out of things.
As for workouts, can you push your son in the stroller around a park, or for laps around a mall? I struggled with leaving my son to work out, so I set a challenge to visit 30 different parks with him last summer and hike at each one together - which we accomplished. It was family time AND workout time.
Ok, I'm a new mother of a 6 month old who's teething like "its a race and he only wants first place." He's cutting 2 at a time and has 6 teeth today. I'm also packing to move this weekend, and I'm also a 3rd grade teacher. I take my son to the gym with me, for an hour, but its hard when he's teethin and fussy, etc. It's also been hard to fit everything in when I'm needing to pack, which is a major change to our daily routine. How do you stay focused and motivated and not feel guilty for stopping everything to go do Zumba? How do you stay focused when something shakes up your world/routine? Thanks!
