It is hard to fit it all in. Last summer I did really good, rode my bike 4-7 miles most days after work with my son. Once school started it was over for me with that as my only exercise and the shorter daylight I was sunk. By the time I got home from work, and dinner thought of it was already getting dark and cold. One of my buddies kept on me about getting diversified with my exercise not just bike riding. She was right, all the weight I had lost I gained back and I did nothing all winter. Now I can't even ride 2 miles without it killing me.
So I am taking the advise of my friend. Getting back into this whole thing. Instead of waiting until evening to get my exercise in I am setting the alarm 30 minutes earlier and getting it in at least 4 days a week before going to work. Today I "took the morning off" and am getting a walk in over lunch for about 30 minutes. It seems if I am able to start the day right then I keep going in that direction.
With the am workouts on the evenings that I have time I am also getting some bonus time exercise in. It feels good to have that be the bonus rather than the "required" for the day.
I hope this is a little helpful. It is really hard to keep up with the kids, work, home, and just life.
