Ok, so thought i would start a new thread in case other people have the same issues as i do and we can come up with solutions together!
I am sooo darn busy!
I work four days a week at an indoor sports centre. I love my job but the hours are strange: Sundays 3pm-10.30pm, Monday and Thursdays 1.30pm-11pm and Tuesdays i just do 1pm-6pm. My son spends Monday afternoons with his Granny and goes to childcare on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Hubby leaves home at 7.20am, returns 6.20pm Mon-Fri.
On top of our jobs, DH and i also have our own Wedding Videography business. We are still in the early stages so have only done about 15 weddings so far but the aim is to eventually have enough clients that i can cut back my hours at the sports centre and spend more time with my family. We are also building a royalty-income based business around putting together communities of people to redirect their shopping online.
I am the Children's Ministry Deacon for our church, so i spend a bit of time coordinating Sunday School, Holiday Clubs and so on. Plus we go to church on Sunday mornings and have a bible study every second wednesday night.
I am (randomly) also the newsletter editor for the Adelaide Lawnmowers Association. It is only every second month but it is still something else that takes up my time.
But the saying is, if you want something done.. give it to a busy person!
Sooo.... my plan of attack for Zumba is:
Mondays: "Ripped" workout while my son has his daytime sleep
Tuesdays: "Exhilarate" at 8pm with a couple of girlfriends
Wednesdays: "Activate" at either 8pm or 10pm, depending which week
Thursdays: "Rush" while son has day sleep
Fridays: "Ripped" workout plus boxing with hubby in the evening
Saturdays: "Exhilarate" 10am, also with some friends and a family walk with hubby and bubby in the late afternoon
Sundays: "Activate" at my sisters' house on my way to work
If i can get myself into this routine for 8 weeks then i can see which day becomes difficult to manage and that can then become my "rest" day. I suspect it may be Sunday or Thursday, but we will see!
I would love to hear of how other people incorporate more "incidental" exercise into their day? eg, taking the stairs instead of the lift, getting off the bus two stops early, etc
