No Excuses or Balanced Approach?

Motherhood is awesome and all-encompassing... so much so that I'm finding it super difficult to make time for exercise. I miss working out - it's something I really love to do. But, between a full time job (one that's meaningful to me, where I expend a good amount of energy), house cleaning, grocery shopping, attempting to maintain a handful of relationships, and mommying, I find myself needing to prioritize and some things just don't get done [[as a dust bunny rolls by... note to self: vacuum soon]].

I do still workout, but more often it's a power walk with the baby in the stroller instead of kickboxing class or a HIIT session. Just this morning I got up early and was 3 minutes into my workout when she woke up (unexpectedly early) so I had to abandon my plan and feed her (nursing with a sports bra on is practically a workout in itself, but that's another story).

I can't help but think about the No Excuses mom... ya know... her:

I don't think putting others down is an acceptable form of motivation, so this kind of makes me crazy. But I get it... there's a camp of believers that say you can make time for anything if you want it enough. They'd tell me to find time to exercise and that if I really wanted to I'd make it happen.

So... I'm curious to hear your opinion: If you really want to exercise, can you ALWAYS find time for it? Or, do you allow yourself to prioritize other things without feeling guilty to maintain a sense of balance/sanity?

P.S. This was my view while writing this post. #ForeverMultitasking

  1. The City's Street People Policy is imperfect in that it gives no proof to the affirmation that giving cash, or nourishment, compounds the situation of road based individuals or builds hostile to social conduct. Clair Little intensifies the mistake by talking from a place of significant specialist with no grounds to do as such subsequently establishing open.
