As of recent, I’ve had to really buckle down to finish a couple of classes. It’s stated in my bio that I’m going to school for Elementary Education and Special Education K-12 (okay, I think it’s stated).
A typical week for me looks like:
Morning Routine 45mins
Workout 1hr- 1hr 30min
School 3 – 4hr
Work 5 hr
Night routine 1hr
Rinse. Wash. Repeat.
Obviously, there’s quite a bit of commute time involved because I go to studios for workouts, the library for school, and another town for work.
The weekends typically escalate school to 8 hours, and workouts to 2 hours.
A few people cry, “It’s not fair, you’re only working 25 hours a week”. Okay, but I worked 50+ hours a week for 3.5 years… to make that happen. 🤷🏽♀️ You do what you gotta do.
There are some off weeks where 0 school work gets done, and I’m “eh” at work. This is called, “Decompression”. Mental health is important. Constantly learning new things and working with 4 very high energy boys — can take its toll. Rest is important.
Any-who, just thought I’d update in case anyone feels like maybe they’re not “doing” enough or “being” enough. Choose what matters to you — and make a schedule around those things. An important part of managing kids is managing yourself.
