I remember the days when I thought I would always work out. Soren and I would wake up early and run to the gym together to work out back when we were first married. We always wondered “Who wouldn’t make time for that?” After I had Easton, I still did pretty well at exercising, and I wrote a blog post on our family blog that was a total soap box about how I would always make time to exercise and take care of myself as a mom. Why didn’t everyone? Well, I was crazy and that blog post was pretty offensive and looking back I’m not surprised that I even lost a few friends over it.
I’m eating my words now. I NEVER have time to exercise anymore. A few of you have asked how or what I do for exercise and I don’t have a good answer for you. I try to walk around the block sometimes and I randomly do squats or calf raises, but I don’t make time for anything consistent right now. And the reality is there is no time. The stress of having a business and three small kids curbs my appetite and I rarely sit down for a meal. That and good genetics is all I can say for my figure. This is just that time of life.
As far as what I wear to work out? This is about it. Nothing too fancy or exciting. I love Nike and Reebok running tees and their running capris. I usually just wear solids, but if I worked out more, I’d for sure make an excuse to grab some of the cute patterned leggings that are so popular right now.
The one thing that is a necessity is a headband. With my hair so short, I need a headband to keep the shortest pieces out of my face. A few of you have also asked how I do my hair to work out, and this is it. I throw on a stretchy headband and tease the top a bit for volume. Then, if I can, I put some into a tiny ponytail and use bobby pins to keep the rest back. It works!
How do you make time for a workout? Do you?
PS – Yes, I draw my eyebrows on and put on concealer to work out. Depending on how dark it is outside.
