We were inspired to do this post by Lyndsie and Josh - check out their blog at The Adventures of BB!
The last time we did a "Here's what our routine/fit life looks like with a kid" was when Everett was 10 WEEKS OLD! Yikes! We'd thought it'd be fun to see what's changed and what's stayed the same. You can go back here to see the old routine. The current schedule goes a little something like this:
4am - Alarms go off...time to wake up (that hasn't changed, unfortunately!)
4:30 - 5:30am - Workout time for Mommy, and during the Academy, breakfast and hittin' the road for Daddy.
*After working out, I quickly put together the baby's daycare bag and my meals for the day*
5:50 - 6:15am - Shower, get ready for the day.
6:15 - 6:45am - If Everett's not already awake, get him up and dressed, quick breakfast, then out the door!
6:45 - 7:25am - Commute to daycare, drop off E, and go to work.
7:30am - 5pm - At work....
5 - 5:20pm - Rush to daycare and snatch up our sweet baby boy where we are always greeted with a huge smile and a shriek in excitement!
5:45 - 6:30pm - Enjoy some time playing with E and the dog before personal training clients start to arrive.
6:30 - 9pm - Personal training clients and/or group fitness classes. Whichever of us isn't training/teaching is playing with Everett and going through his nightly routine and putting him down by 8/8:30.
9:30/10pm - Adults in bed, fingers crossed the baby sleeps well so we can get up and do it all again.
When you compare this post with the post from Everett being 10 weeks old, not too much has changed! There's no need for a 4am dream feed/change, which is helpful...and our evenings are much busier now that our business has grown! Additionally, about 80% of the time, Everett wakes up sometime between 4 and 6:30am....mid-workout, mid-shower, mid-whatever :) Those are the fun mornings where everything is accomplished one-handed!
All in all - leading a fit life with a toddler isn't too different than a fit life with an infant! The biggest difference we've noticed is the greater difficulty continuing a workout when he wakes up during it...now that he is crawling and walking, there is no sitting in a playpen....BUT, we still get it done, just have to watch where we step, and take a lot of breaks for hugs and kisses (or to pull him off the steps) :)
As always, we'd love to hear from you about how you juggle it all!! Feel free to comment below or contact us via any of our social media networks!
