My DD is almost 13 months. She doesn’t take in a lot of milk while I’m gone out of the house so much of her milk intake is at night or when I get home in the evenings. Sometimes she still wakes up 3-4 times at night. She goes to bed at about 9 PM and wakes up at around 8 or 8:30 AM. I am out of the house in the mornings at 7:30 AM.
So, moms who are working full time, cosleeping, and breastfeeding: WHEN do you work out? I got up this morning at 5:30 to squeeze in an early workout before getting ready for work and the day. However, my DD has adjusted herself so that she takes in much of her milk before I get up in the morning so she woke up this morning in shock that I wasn’t there and my husband spent about 40 minutes putting her back to bed. I feel so horribly about this.
By the time DD is sleeping, I’m so exhausted. I just have the energy to finish the dishes, answer personal emails, and do other stuff that needs to be done in the house. I couldn’t imagine working out at that time- I’m usually in bed by 11 PM, at the latest.
I feel guilty working out when I get home because I feel that’s my time to focus on her. Even if I’m not playing with her, I am still around for her to be held, carried, kissed, or smiled at. I couldn’t really do that while working out.
So… WHEN do you find time to work out? I NEED to get back into the workout groove but I’m either too exhausted or feel too guilty to do it. Sigh.
