Jaynee0 and Mayflowers: What began to bring my strength back (I was always very strong in earlier years) was getting rid of systemic Candida overgrowth. That stuff has an extremely detrimental effect on muscle strength. Anyway, I have mentioned before on the board about the projects I undertake around here that include climbing ladders, hand sawing, tearing out and replacing wall coverings, (not talking about wallpaper!) etc., etc.... plus a huge amount of yard work. (I refuse to buy a riding lawn mower! Yet!) The yard is one acre and there is a considerable difference in terrain from one side to the other.

I don't go at anything half-heartedly. For instance, a good work out is sawing down a thirty foot camellia "bush" with umpteen "trunks" that has gotten out of hand! Or spreading a huge dump truck load of wood chips all in one day! Woooweeee!!! That will take off two or three pounds!

Of course, the BTD gave me a huge boost around ten years ago, and things have been getting better ever since. But, as I said, my strength exceeds what my frame can handle so I have to be careful about not overdoing it. So, now, I will go and put a finish coat on the woodwork I have been refinishing!

You go girl.. I'm having problems with fatigue now... you know what that's from.. Do you still work or are you retired? I need more upper body work..I went to go out on the porch to use my total gym yesterday and I almost passed out from the heat! I can't imagine Dr. D cycling in this weather..we're talking heat stroke!  
I need the upper body strength so I can get the yard work caught up...

That's me too.  If I'm going to do something, I'm going to put my whole heart into it.  I'm very project-oriented.  I struggle with the daily tasks that face me.  I burn out and tire of the same-ness.  I like projects.  For example, the other day I decided I was going to rearrange my kitchen cabinets.  When we moved here nearly three years ago, I just put stuff where I could and figured I'd rearrange when I had more time.  Well, I had a 2 1/2 y.o. and a 6 m.o. at the time and never got around to it.  Now I can plop the older two in front of the Sound of Music, give the baby a pot and a couple of spoons, and I can rearrange things to my heart's content.  I like the way my kitchen is organized now.  I can reach things easier.  Too bad it took me so long to get around to it.  Now I'm rearranging the girls' room.  I started painting a mural on the wall a few months ago but got distracted (the story of my life), but at least the furniture is in a better arrangement.  The baby will be ready to go into a toddler bed in the next 6-9 months, and then I'll move Ethan into a twin-sized bed if he'll give up his toddler bed.

Anyway, when I decide to tackle something, I find that I'm really not so weak after all, and I have a surprising amount of umph.  I believe having mean older brothers growing up stifled my Warriorness and it never fully developed until recently.  The more time goes by I fit more and more the description that Dr. D gave.  Although I'm still not choleric.

I seem to have the problem lately of writing down a project that I want to do and then..on the way to the project that I had planned for the day, I see another project en route and do that one instead. What's that all about? I do feel more energetic since the GTD though. I'd like a good 6 months to test it.

So do you any of you "seasoned" mothers have some good advice on when to exercise for us extremely busy mom's?  Being an O I dearly love exercise and feel so much better when I do but there seems to be so little time to do it.  
By the time 9:00pm arrives, you flop in bed exhausted and kick yourself that you didn't walk the treadmill that day.  Any ideas?

I have absolutely had to limit myself to no more than two projects at a time. The main thing being that it creates too much of a mess. Tools and stuff everywhere drives me nuts! I have had to stop nearly everything the last ten days or so to work on this computer. Today I need to go buy a new printer if I can get away from here in time. I will be so glad to get this aggravation behind me. This "project" was definitely NOT planned!

Indeed.

Leanne, my O mother waited till we (5 of us) got old enough to walk with her, or during the summer we walked in the evenings when my dad was home to help push strollers, etc.  Before that she didn't have time to think about exercise.  What I've done a couple of times lately and hope to do on a more regular basis is walk in the evenings after dinner.  We all go around the block as a family, which takes forever, then my husband takes them in, gives them snacks if they need it, brushes their teeth, puts their pj's on, and reads them stories.  That gives me time to walk a couple more times around the block, which is often just the wind-down time I need to be able to smile again on one of those days.

I hate using TV or movies as a babysitter, but sometimes you  just gotta.  I use them when I have to to get supper cooked, for example.  Usually I can get them occupied doing something else, but if they've been at each other all day sometimes I'll put on a little something for them to watch.

I know a family with 7 children.  The mom takes all the children outside, puts the baby in a carrier or playpen and everybody just plays while she walks around and around and around the yard (they have a pretty big yard).

  ! that was funny.

I managed to stay home the first 5 years of my older son's life. I had a play pen that I parked in front of the tv (Barney) he loved is as long as I was right there..I'd then peddle the exercise bike while he played..If I wanted to do something else I'd wait until his nap time and work out to a video.. I like videos for working out. Don't have to leave your house.

If you work..you can get a walk in at lunch time..Which is what I was doing a lot.

Oh-my-goodness!  That was hilarious!  

Ribbit, thanks.  I think that I feel guilty when I don't walk the two miles that's recommended for an O.  That's at least a half an hour.  However, I suppose that I should just do what I can and quit hitting myself over the head for what I can't.

Hey, my newest motto (and I'm really big on mottos) is:  I'm doing the best I can.  When anybody complains about something, I smile and say, "I'm doing the best I can."  It makes me feel better and it shuts them up.

Hi Leanne,

I just saw this thread.

One trick is mornings. Before anything else-ANYTHING-. 30 min before everyone gets up DO SOMETHING-any exercise.  

Then at night....when you pull your leg back to kick yourself again... you won't be able to.  

30 min X 7 days a week= 3.5 hours per week that you didn't have before.

Thanks.  I think the majority of my problem right now is that I've just had a baby.  I tried walking the treadmill a couple of weeks ago but it still hurt.  
This past week I've done well.  I was able to lift laundry baskets without suffering afterwards.  
Next week we'll be at kids' camp so I'll try to start walking on the following week.  
I was walking a mile per day before I got pregnant.  I had gained some weight and was trying to get it off.  Anyhow, I won't go in to it all but will try to get back into it the week after next.

Leanne!

I don't think I started working out until my son was sleeping all the way through the night..2-3 months? My second wouldn't sleep through the night till he was about 4 months old.

Yeah.  I did not start exercising until my daughter was 1 yr. old.  So please take it easy and do not kick yourself.

Rest, Leanne.  Don't push yourself too hard yet.  If it hurts your body is telling you that you need more time off.  Wait till it doesn't hurt your insides at all, then you can start walking again.  But don't worry about extra weight yet---you know all this already---just nurse a lot and eat right and that baby will suck it all off!
