How do Working Moms Find Time to Workout

I’ve been saying for months that it’s time for me to start working out again. Problem is, I can’t seem to find time to fit it into my schedule.

Before everyone starts with the cliche sayings, my schedule is jam packed!

We wake up at 5am on the weekdays. We shower and get ready for the day. We leave the house by 7am. I drop them off at daycare and get to work a little after 8am. I get off of work at 5pm and get back to daycare by 545pm. We get home around 6pm and we start dinner. By the time we eat and clean up, it’s after 7pm. We do bath time for both of them and the little one does bedtime at 8pm. The big one goes to bed at 9pm.

Typically, I then get lunches ready for the next day and run the dishwasher. By this point, I’m tired and want some down time.

I’m sure after the kids go to bed is the ideal time to get my work out in, but then I’m not tired right away. If I stay up until 11pm, I can only get 6 hours of sleep. To add to the mix, my youngest doesn’t sleep through the night. He still gets up one to two times a night.

Suggestions are welcome!!

FitMiss Protein Powder

I have been struggling to find a meal replacement shake that I like and that is within my budget.

I drank Shakeology for 6 months, and I loved it!  Unfortunately, with 2 small boys in daycare, Shakeology is just not in my budget.

I have done some research, and I have seen great reviews for FitMiss.


I went out and bought a tub of it.  I had a light dinner and had a shake tonight.

I bought the Chocolate Delight and mixed it with unsweetened almond milk and some PB2.  The taste wasn’t bad.  It does not taste as great as Shakeology, but I feel I can get past it.

I will try blending it tomorrow to see how it tastes with a banana and some ice added as well!!

Week 2 Results – Not the Best

Week 2 results are in, and I gained.  I’m definitely not happy, but I’m still down from my starting weight.


I’ve been logging some of my food, but as soon as I get home from work I lose focus.

My goal for this week is to track ALL of my food – good and bad.  Let’s be honest, slips up once in awhile.  We’re only human, right?

My week ahead will be challenging.  Today is my youngest son’s birthday.  My oldest son’s birthday is on Friday.  Their birthday party is on Saturday.  There will be a lot of temptation, and I just need to keep M-O-D-E-R-A-T-I-O-N in mind.
