I used to workout 6x a week a few years ago. I even joined marathons like twice or thrice a year.

So I had to change my routines, and found ways how to squeeze workouts in my schedule. Here's what I did:  1. I made sure to stick with a ...

@katpash You've got this! It's hard at first finding a good spot scheduling -wise but give it some time. I truly disliked waking up and working out right away at first, but once I got into the rhythm of it, it really made my days a lot better.

Great work Jaymee! It definitely gets trickier to find the time for working out, working, and taking care and spending time with our families. I recently had to switch up my schedule and have been struggling to get my workout back in a spot that works for me. Good luck and great work!
