RE: Does anyone else ever wonder..........
Great post, Sparrow. I couldn't have said it any better.
I put in 8-12 hours a week, depending on the time of year and what I'm trying to accomplish fitness-wise. But working out isn't the only thing I have in my world. It's important to me to be on top of ALL things associated with my son's life (yeah, can you say control freak?) -- his development, his education, his health... And I have my many creative pursuits that need time. I'm not even going to start with the daily errands and chores.
The same goes with my husband. I know he wants to put in more time exercising. But he works so many hours during the week, that he prefers to spend his downtime with our boy. Well, either that, or he sleeps.:)
I do wonder about the moms in my neighborhood and in my son's class who ask me about my fitness routine and then say they have no time. I'm doing more or less the same things they're doing. I make time. And if I can't, I steal it.:P
