Keeping the exercising sprint at least, fumbling on food...
Tomorrow I have to pick up a paint-man (is it called also a painter?) to paint some of the walls in my house. I could have done this myself, but I have no time or energy and he would probably do it faster (but not better ;-) ). Anyway I need to pick him up at 6AM, apparently some of these people start to work verry early... Good luck to me!
@lofivelcro so kind of you to care for me! it's really heartwarming!
I am well, but a bit overwhelmed. We have two (!) new babies in our family and it's been quite a journey, one of love and happiness, and much less of sleep and time for us 👼
I'm still trying to figure out how to make room for self-care and exercise, and if there are any (ex-)young parents in the crowd which could share a tip I would appreciate that.
I'm doing the night shift, so I sleep 3-4 hours a day 😴
My advice: sleep when you can. Don't worry about an exercise program right now. If you can take the babies in a stroller for a walk that's great. If not, make do with the minimum for now. You will get through this sleep-deprived phase. It seems unending but this a special time to bond with your new little ones Do you have any friends or family that could provide some meals for your family during this time? Or have some meals delivered? Also, and I know this one is hard, but try to limit visitors for now. Having people constantly 'drop by' can quickly become exhausting. Guard your time wisely and maybe allow visits only on certain days and times.
@Lady Celerity thank you, you provide wise advice. I'm trying just to "keep the lights on" on training, like a simple challenge I guess, just to have a schedule in this turbulent times. They already start to show signs of being a bit more sleepy at night 🤞
Family is helping, which is great, but we still feel like we handle the kids/cook/clean the house better than anyone else, and we need to learn to let go.
Visitors is an annoyance, you are truly right about them. I would limit them.
OK, and with that, I hope to start something tomorrow, let's see what happens
