The "Balance" Problem...

Wednesday, May 04, 2011

I am really struggling with balance this week. It has been building up the last couple of weeks but now it is at critical mass. I finally have put myself on "the list" so to speak as a priority, which is great. However, adding 300 minutes of exercise to my already busy schedule comes w/ a price. I'm a mom of 2 and I teach College English. I can't seem to find enough hours in the day but I'm not going to give up on myself now. Can anyone else relate? Here's how I feel:

    Balance is a tough one for me as well!

    Keep on chipping away. Don't try everything at once!

    It's a balancing act for sure!
    You know you can get the same benefits from doing 3 ten minute workouts each day.
    Maybe you can do some classes and on days when it seems impossible to fit anything MORE in you can go for a few 10 minute speed walks instead of taking a coffee break.

    I totally relate. I have 2 children, 11 months apart, and a severe spinal deformity. Juggling the children, the pain, and not giving up on moving and exercising is a comedic joke, in my life.

    I just laugh at the circus-like pace our lives take on and always hear, in the back of my head, "Yakkity Sax," (the theme song to Benny Hill). I have no advice or tips, other than laugh at the insanity of it all.

    You have a great page, BTW.
