One thing I have learned that if I want to be a Fit Mommy is that I have to use my time wisely.
Before: Go to the gym everyday for spinning classes, BodyAttack, Step, cross trainer, BodyFlow (yeah, right maybe twice) The whole "event" by the time I include travel to the gym, getting to the class a few minutes early, talking for a few minutes after, and my commute home = 2 hours
After: Workout starts when I walk out the front door. This basically means I am either running, biking or walking. Denmark really has amazing weather in the summer. I don't have much to complain about when the rest of my family is suffering in the states from the heat, because it rarely breaks 80 degrees here. Now, we do have days that are gray and rainy, but those are my favorite times to run. The only day I have to really plan is when I am doing my long runs for my marathon training. Last week, I was up to 14 miles which takes over two hours. I made sure I had a bottle at home for DH to give to Wesley if he got hungry/fussy, and I was relaxed knowing my baby would be ok a few hours without me.
I came home last week, and I swear Wesley did not even notice I was gone. He and Daddy were hanging out having a good time.
Mommies or time crunched people: How do you manage to do it all?
