Hi neighbor! Yes I’m in Detroit still. PS I love Grand Rapids. Founders is the shit. I was out that way a lot while I was going to WMU.
To answer your question, there’s ALWAYS time for a workout. I can totally relate with the busy work schedule and just wanting to go home and be lazy, and then to throw a kid into the mix makes that initial feeling even more so especially because you want that time with her too. But bottom line, it has to be a priority and when it truly is, you will make that time. Even if you can’t make it to the gym there’s a lot you can do at home. Free weights or those velcro ones you put on your wrists or ankles aren’t expensive and are super effective. I saw a pic posted on here that’s a TV commercial workout which tells you what exercise to do based on the type of commercial (I think I reblogged it). But anywho, there’s lots of ways around not making it to the gym but that’s only if you truly can’t. If you can go, go! If anything, look at it as time you intentionally set aside for yourself. With your busy schedule, you need some you time. Plus you will never regret squeezing a workout in. Hope this helps! Good luck to you and your little girl <3
