I am very frustrated right now. 2006 has gotten off to a very bad start with my training. December was a tough month for me at work. With my schedule and with the holidays, I reduced my workouts to 2x a week - no sweat, I was going to kick it into high gear in '06.
Between my 3 kids, my wife and myself, at least 2 people in my house have been sick every day this year (either vomiting, diarrhea or fevers). This has meant that I have gotten up in the middle of the night every single night, sometimes for 2-3 hours at a time comforting, cleaning up rooms and doing laundry. I am averaging about 4 hours of sleep per night so far and I haven’t been able to increase my workout frequency yet. I am losing muscle mass too because of the stress and lack of sleep.
I know there are people who are far worse off than me so i shouldn’t complain, but no one else that I know would understand my frustration at quickly losing gains that come painfully slow to me. Anyone else have similar frustrations with life interfering with training?
P.S. people with serious illness or servicemen/women currently serving overseas, feel free to tell me to stfu.
