At the beginning of this challenge, I had high hopes that I would be safely in the 150′s. Suffice it to say that I am not in the 150′s and I’m doing good to just maintain. Life is so freakin’ crazy right now that I am struggling HARD to tread water and not drown in the myriad of details. I am so incredibly tired every single day YET I am having trouble going to sleep at night, which is so unlike me. I normally have no problems sleeping except in high times of stress.
I guess I am a little stressed out.
Did I mention how tired I am?
I am doing the bare minimum to keep up with my half marathon training, at the very least, getting three runs in per week. I am reading a book on nutrition for runners and that’s been enlightening. I am *trying* to spend more time with my kids and give them more attention as I am finding that they behave better when they have my undivided attention. When I run, I let myself go, regroup my mental state, and feel good about myself.
I want to put on my cheerleader hat and motivate you and you and you and tell you how proud I am of you and you and you. It’s so hard to do when I can barely motivate myself.
I know, cry me a freakin’ river.
Oh look, I have peanut butter smeared all over my pants. Awesome.
I just wanted to let ya’ll know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth, that I am still here…..just treading water until life gets a little easier.
