    Actually, I would say it is the next step in your maturity. Quit trying to do "..what everybody else" did. The truth is, we don't really know what they did, - only what they said they did, or what somebody else said they did - and their time, obligations, life's goals, cost of living, professional sponsors paying for their training.... etc. were probably all different from yours.

    You now have other obligations in life that dictate it is no longer "all about me". My suggestion is: simply create a challenging workout with goals that is interesting, you enjoy and can be done within the time life allows. Then enjoy the family, kids and your precious time with them.

    when your kids get old enough to join in with you at some level, it will all be worth it. Unless you are getting paid or make a living for your fitness, or "your look" or whatever physical abilities you are striving for, Cheating them now for the sake of "your extended workout" is pointless in my opinion.

    Had I left the weight room, racquetball courts, dojo a little earlier each day, perhaps I would be sitting here post op of my 15th joint operation.

    (..and don't get me started on the speed bag....)
    Point well taken!! it goes hand in hand with what I said about "observing the the reality of my surroundings" I should have also added "acceptance" which is more important than just "observing". Thanks Alan!!
