Do you ever feel like since you became a mom your stress levels are higher, you get worn out a lot easier, and you just have a much harder time keeping a regular workout routine going?
You wish you could just set a workout schedule and stick to it but Mom Life is so unpredictable that it’s nearly impossible to get it perfect every week, right?
And it can be so easy to feel burned right out as a mom. It can come fast and seemingly out of nowhere.
One moment things are amazing. You got your workout in. You ate kale (!) . You even turned down leftover birthday cake at a friend’s house because it just wasn’t worth it.
But then later that night your kiddo decides to throw an award winning tantrum that starts around 4pm, sabotages dinner, runs right through bath time and lasts until she finally falls asleep at 8:42pm.
Then, as if surviving that without racing out of the house and starting a new life as Susan Wallaby (the erotic novelist with a Spanish boyfriend – ooh la la) wasn’t enough, you’re also woken at 2am, 3am, 4am, and 5:12am when your kid decides that she’s up for the day and needs breakfast. Right. Now. And it better be pancakes or else get ready for Terrible Tantrum Tales round 42. Ugh.
And as you sip your coffee and try to forget the fact that the sun won’t even be up for at least another hour you remember that you had promised yourself you’d get a workout in today.
So what do you do?
Do you push through? Suck it up? Make it happen?
