The last couple of weeks has been crazy. I never realized how much twin babies can utilize your time. The daily activities that are required to care for my children; the work related courses that I have to take and the weekly commitments that I cannot put aside. At times, I have found the schedule can be overwhelming. I used to be a Professional Organizer, what seems a lifetime ago, and I consider myself proficient in the area of time management; however this is on a whole new level. Though my day is full, the twins are rather easy to care for; the real superheroes are the moms and dads who care for an infant and a toddler at the same time. Toddlers are like herding cats.
So what is the point of all this discussion? Well other than wishing for four extra hours in addition to the 24 allowed, it is the dedication of the parents who are trying to obtain their goals that continues to impress and humble me. Though I am getting the majority of my coach’s workouts in, some days it is tough. I find myself banging out those last few sets on the rower at 11 pm or dragging my butt out of bed at 5 am so I can get in a quick AMRAP or lift. But at times it is easy to put the workout off to the next day, which in a sense is sacrificing myself and my goals. So, I have to commend the parent who is trying to get to that objective be it athletics, academics or whatever they have set out. It is them I pay tribute, and it is them who are the superstars because I now know that to reach these goals it a juggling act and sometimes a sacrifice.
So to all the people out there juggling their lives in pursuit of achieving their goals my hat goes off to you; you guys are true superstars.
