It was no doubt that once my daughter was born, staying in shape may have been put on the back burner. My life instantly became filled with the joys of being a father and sleeping less, staying in shape just didn’t seem as important as it used to.
I had also completely underestimated the amount of work it took to take care of a baby. I used to tell my (older) co-workers that I would still have plenty of time to do activities after the baby was born, I was wrong. And even on the days I did have time, I chose to spend it with mommy and baby. There was nothing more I loved (and still do) than being a father. I would much rather spend my days changing poopy diapers than catching a few waves at the beach.
