No time for me

Raising children alone doesn't leave much time to get everything done. 

My daily routine is pretty much the same, five to six days a week. I wake up about 5 a.m., get myself ready for the day, wake the children, in order to get them ready for the sitters, and then out the door about 6. In my case, usually about 6:15. Drop the kids off and I head to work. I'm at work on a typical day anywhere from 8 to 16 hours. 

After work, it's back home to meet the kids at the bus stop. From this point on, all hell usually breaks loose. School is back in, so between homework for the girls, cooking dinner, baths for three children and laundry, there is not much time for me to run to the gym. 

The Wii really does help, along with taking the kids for walks or going to the park. 

On my days off from work, it's a lot easier to run to the gym for 45 minutes or an hour. I follow the guidelines and suggestions that my personal trainer Ken Cutcher of Anytime Fitness has told me, even though I'm only at the gym about two days a week right now. I have came to accept my challenges in life and I face them daily. Again, thanks to everyone for their support.
