So, I have not worked out once this week. I thought that might be the case, since it was my first week back at work. Also, my in-laws surprised us and ended up staying at our house 2 nights, I have a slight cold, Anna has had a viral eye infection, and now I have a clogged milk duct. Blah. And between alk that and washing bottles, pumping, packing lunches/bags...i just havent had time or energy. Plus, dh is on first shift, which means less time in the evenings to myself for working out. My eating/loggingin MFP has been fine, water intake has been so so, and working out has been non-existent.

I've got to find a way to add in some workouts to my weekly routine. Here's hoping I can get back in the groove soon!

That's a big transition. I think I would set little goals to ease it into your routine. Maybe you could create some mini workouts you could do.

don't beat yourself up over it You have a lot going on right now and that is okay...just ease into by doing little mini workouts every day....try just 20mins a day as a starting point or even 10mins!

I agree, ease into it! It sounds similar to my life on the weeks that DH works nights, and it is definitely tough to get it al in!

Thanks ladies! You're right...I need to come up with some mini-workouts to do whenever I can find a few minutes. I'm also hoping that this week will be a little better, since the in-laws won't be here, and hopefully we'll all be feeling better than we were last week. Here's hoping!
