A lesson in flexibility

A lesson in flexibility



I am noticing that young children are physically challenging and the older they get the more mentally challenging they and their situations become. I suppose that’s a good thing because challenges like no sleep and carrying one and sometimes two sleeping kids from the car to the house are things that are easier to manage when the onset of osteoarthritis is not quite imminent.

Waking up early is definitely the key to getting anything at all accomplished but Ro is giving me a run for my money! I set the alarm for 4:30am this morning and wouldn’t you know it, he was up at 4:25 a.m.! Raj got the milk ready while I calmed him down but by the time I gave Ro back to Raj, Ellil started to stir and so I went to make sure she wouldn’t get up. Of course, I fell asleep and didn’t get up till 5 a.m.  Enough time to get ready and leave but definitely too late to sneak in a workout. What’s a girl to do!

I want to figure out a schedule that I can stick to, but there isn’t any sort of pattern at all to any of my days! This is my lesson in flexibility and juggling the balls of time. So this is what I think I need to be able to do:
Workout when I can
Catnap when I can
Eat HEALTHY when I can
Don’t get upset when I can’t (do any of the above 3 I mean)

Moms! Anything else I’m missing??
