…and then life gets in the way.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we didn’t have to work and could just workout whenever we want? One of my biggest struggles is making time to run. By nature, I am a morning runner. I have more energy, I get it over with and just perform better. fact.
Also fact, I leave for work at 6:30. so if I were to get up and run I would have to get up at 4:15 or so…and that would not be fun. I so wish soemtimes I had a job with a lunch break, or a job where I didn’t have to be in until 9, so I could get up at a reasonable hour and run.
But, unfortunately, I am not so lucky. Maybe someday! So, back to my problem. When I run in the afternoons I am lucky to get in 3 miles. I ahve to get home to let the dogs out, I also coach basketball so some nights I can’t make it to the gym at all, etc. etc. So what do you do? I am just SO TIRED by the time I leave work it’s hard to wlak to the car let alone get to the gym. Oh, I also forgot to mention, me going to sleep at 8 so I can get up at 4 is not an option. my husband gets home from work at 8:30 so I would never get to see him, the dogs freak out when he comes home and would wake me up anyway etc. SO WHAT DO I DO?!? thoughts?
What do you do?

Oh, by the way, the whole reason i wrote this is because I went to the gym yesterday and only had time for 2 miles before I had to get back to the school to coach…then i got home late so i went to bed late so I am exhausted today so no run. (not to mention I have 3 errands to run) Why can’t we all just RUN?!? (sometimes I want to run away haha)
sometimes when I am leaving for work and see the women out at 6:30-6:45 running I want to push them down…no just kidding, but I am super jealous!

  1. Maybe you could get a treadmill? I don’t have one, but when my hubby and I move into a house, it will be on the priority list. Especially if we are still living in the north where it is too cold to run outside some days! One way that I have enjoyed keeping in some kind of shape when I can’t go for a run is doing the wii fit. It’s definitely not running, but it is still a workout of some kind and it is quick because you don’t have to spend time driving to the gym and back. I was a doubter, until I got it in November and lost about 4-5 pounds since! 😛

    • I love my wii fit! I also got the biggest loser wii game and that’s a tough one! I defiantely would love a treadmill! We would sadly have no room for it. As it is the elliptical is in our bedroom lol! One day we hope to have a “home gym” but we shall see!!! thanks for reading Becky!

      • I love reading your blog! It is fun to hear what is going on with you guys and I love how dedicated you are to staying in great shape! It is inspiring too! I wish we lived near each other so we could run together! 🙂 None of my friends here like to run so it just me and my good buddy the treadmill at the gym 😛

      • aw it would be fun to have a running buddy! Bobby runs with me when he can but our schedules are so different it’s hard!
