When do you exercise??

Hard week and I am feeling guilty. One weight workout and one walk with the dog. That is it!!
I usually exercise in the am. I like having my workouts undisturbed. But, I have been VERY tired. Dd has been sleeping poorly and life has been happening again. So, I have trouble rising out of my comfy bed before 8.
Diet-bah, tired and not wanting to cook. Lot's of eating out and chocolate.
I will try again next week as this week we are finishing up dd's gymnastics class(show today!) and ds's soccer season(they are 7-1). Hoping when life slows down a little I can develop the habit and it will be established for when chaos reigns again :)
Keep up your good work everyone. While I am lacking this week, you do inspire me!!

Years ago, I used to plan a little reward for myself, to make sure I worked out even if I felt too tired to get up or to get changed - a nice cup of herbal tea, a new magazine, a mini sized chocolate
( eg one hershey kiss).

Now, the workout is my time and my reward .

I sed to also have a plan A. B and C for those days when I couldn;t fit my workout out in normal time - so I always made sure I'd get it in. Or I'd plan just to work out three days a week but keep which day as flexible.

And at least you got some workouts in! WTG!!

Hang in there..! We all have stretches where life gets in the way. I just takes time to get a rhythm to life and working out becomes a natural part.

For a while when my boys were younger I would let them play at the park and I would walk the edges really fast for a workout. Maybe you could do that at the soccer field? :)
