My son will be 3 in October. He was diagnosed with ASD at 26 months. He still doesn't speak. He's extremely active. And he barely sleeps. 6 hours is a good night for him. I also have a 9 month old who's still up 3-5 times at night. So I get very little sleep. Which makes it hard for me to find the energy to do anything. I try to include my baby girl in my fitness. On days when daddy's home or my son is in daycare, baby and I do yoga together or go for a walk to the park. But it's almost impossible to make healthy choices when I'm alone all day with both kids.
