True Confessions- It's Getting Real In Here | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I feel the need to get some things off my chest, true confession style. It’s not going to be pretty but hopefully by the end of this post, I can wrap it up nicely.

  1. I am over-committed.  I know this but it’s starting to be a real problem.  I will finish out my commitments for this school year and then I am going to have to re-evaluate my priorities and make some tough decisions.  Let me explain what over-commitment looks like for me.  I am the mother of three kids- the oldest child is 10 yr old.  She is on a competition dance team.  All three kids play sports.  I work 20+ hours a week.  I run a few times a week.  I am a volunteer teacher at our church school.  I write for this site.  I oversee the Run with the Sisterhood Facebook page.  I do marketing work for Zooma Women’s Race Series.  I work a lot of Saturdays and have to plan major coordination with the husband to make sure the kids are where they need to be.   Oh, and there is that little thing called *running a household* and all that entails.  This schedule started in September and it has now reached the boiling point of over-commitment- my entire family is suffering.  Last night, I was so exhausted.  I literally could not keep my eyes open and I wanted to QUIT EVERY SINGLE THING at that moment.  Every thing, all of it- good bye.  My family is the most important thing to me and they are getting the shaft because of MY over-commitment problems.
  2. I am tired.
  3. I only ran twice last week which is unheard of for me.  I like to run three times a week- it helps keep me *happy*.  I need to run more this week.
  4. I am DONE DONE DONE with snow days.  No more snow days, please.
  5. Eating right has flown out the window.

I cannot end this post this way.  Here are three positive things I am going to do this week:

  1. Exercise 4 times between today and Saturday.  The plan is for three runs and at least one day of strength work.  Anything more will be icing on the cake (ha ha!!!).
  2. No nighttime snacking on crap food.
  3. Start and end each and every day with *I love you.  You are awesome* to my wonderful, beautiful kids.

What about you?  Go ahead and confess the good, the bad and the ugly.  Then, take a few sentences to tell me how you are going to make this week a good week.
