Things are good for the first 12-weeks or so and then it gets REALLY hard. I had a mini-meltdown around the 6 month mark. Things have mellowed out, but it's still hard to squeeze in the training. "They" say it gets better around pre-school age. Oof.

I was able to "go with the flow" for a while, until the flow reversed! The Mrs. doesn't have any friends or help out here,. Being alone all day every day, w baby takes a toll. I am gone 50+hrs a week M-F. Small window to see them daily, 6:00-7:30pm and mornings/night are when Mrs. needs most help. Can't leave them hanging and don't want to. In meantime, gotta dial in time mgmt and focus on shorter daily workouts in garage, which attaches to kitchen, and weekend hikes or climbs with the ladies.

Same! Holly is having a hard time being a single mom with no help up the mountain. It's hard on both of us. Yeah I have my 'mill, bike trainer, TRX, etc in the front room, just off the living room. Still hard to find 30 mins here and there to grab a workout.
