8 children equals zero exercise, or, overload of exercise ???

Saturday, May 25, 2013

I haven't exercised in 3 days and that is way too long. We had a bad storm tear through Arkansas so I was working out inside with Jillian Michaels (OUCH) then got one run in. Thursday night I was asked to take 2 foster children for a night and they had a very very difficult time adjusting, hence, I had no time to do anything other then hands on care.

Friday night they left and three children came. The baby was incredibly sick so went from work to children to urgent care. Came home at 11pm and was up most of the night with sick baby. No exercise Friday.

And I forgot that my two grandbabies were coming to spend the night... at 8 am.... so I had A houseful! Kids aged 17 months, 25 months, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12 and 17. I was drastically trying to figure out a way to get a run in or workout to a video but twas not to be today. HOWEVER I didn't sit down one time from 830 this morning until about 9pm so that has to count for some form of exercise RIGHT? emoticon

    OMG! You did not post on my page that you did not exercise! You did too! You had your hands way full and I bet your feet were trying to hold onto someone too! Give yourself some grace. You wanted to exercise and probably needed the down time you would have gotten with it! You are the rock star! Hang in there. You are juggling a lot, but making time for you is important too. I just know in the middle of a mini crisis it doesn't feel like me time! So carve out a nitch when you aren't ready to pass out! HUGS!
