I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

How we busy mom's 'do it'

Ab workout number two complete for the week.  How did I fit in mothering a toddler, cleaning, painting, chickens, making kids lunches, supper prep, baking cookies, blogging, AND ab workout?? Not to mention my 10km run tonight??

Easy.  Planning. 


Who says I can't do sit ups while watching my Young and the Restless??  I have half an hour of complete silence and down time before Audrey wakes up and the kids get off the bus.  I CHOOSE to sit at the computer while watching something fluffy on t.v, and blogging to you.  It is all about priorities. 
Oh, and I'm running with my friend while our kids are at a program tonight.  The program is 1.5hrs. Perfect time for a 10km and stretch no? 


I'll be home by 8:30pm tonight and I will put my PJ's on and throw myself onto the couch for an hour before bed.  I get down time, and that down time is sooooo nice when I know I've put in a days work.

Oh.... and that is just today. Every day can be as active and lazy as I want. The day I clean my house is NOT the day I do much other physical activity.  It is all about balance, and frankly if I want to choose to 'take the day off' and do as little as I can I certainly will thank you very much...Sometimes The Young and the Restless needs my full undivided attention  ;)
