A little overwhelmed

Monday, December 03, 2012

DH and I ran on Friday. I actually had a pretty good run. I was going to do the 10 min run/3 min walk (3 times). We only had about a 35-40 min. window, so I stretched out & ran 10 mins., walked 3, then ran 12 mins & walked 3 mins. I decided to just run the rest of the way and that was an additional 6 min. run. We had to do a quick stretch and then pick up DD#2 from basketball practice. Since DD#1 was at a party and DD#3 was at a "rock a thon" (Middle School band fund raiser), we got Subway for dinner. Friday was pretty good!

My goal on Saturday was to wake up and do my ST routine. I had to make eggs & pancakes for DD#2 (she had an 11 am game) and pancakes for DD#3 & friend. DD#2 lost again on Saturday (closer though), but she played a great game. She didn't start, but played about 3/4 of the game. I know she's my child, but I'm pretty objective about my children (don't always think they're perfect!), but I was a little frustrated she didn't start again. They keep starting the same 5. Again, she gets a lot of playing time, but you always want to "start". She was actually the high scorer of the game and she's a defensive player and rebounder! She scored 7 out of the 19 points. This team has got to come up with some offense. As mentioned before, the 6'4" girl is on the varsity team!

Anyway, after the game, I had to pick up DD#1's boyfriend (we have a halfway meeting point). When we got back home, it was already 2 pm and I had a huge Christmas explosion all over the house. I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting through totes and decorating. I did a bad job last year when I packed away Christmas - I couldn't find anything. I watched the SEC Championship while decorating the den! (Georgia lost ). I pretty much worked on the decorating until about 7:30 pm and then had to drop of the boyfriend - so no exercise Saturday!

Sunday morning DD#2 had confirmation class. When we got home from class, we decorated the tree and I still had more decorations to put out! I ended up getting a major headache and had to lay down for about an hour. By then it was time to take DD#3 to church (she's an alter server so has to be there early). We had Subway again for dinner!

DH was a little mad that we ate out twice over the weekend. We're trying to keep a budget. We worked out a menu last night and he went to the grocery store this morning. So I'll eat pretty healthy this week.

As usual, every night this week there's something going on. Tonight is going to be insane! All 3 have to be dropped off & picked up (DH is working). Plus I have tonight's dinner to get in the oven (DH is going to do some prep before he leaves). So, there's no running tonight. Fortunately, this is the only night he works, so I might be able to squeeze in a run tomorrow before DD#2's basketball practice (she has the late schedule this week) and DD#3's winter band concert. Practice starts at 6:00 and DD#3 has to be at the school at 6:00. The good news is the Middle School is using the High School's auditorium, so they're at the same place!

The reason I'm a little overwhelmed is in addition to the crazy schedule, there's the added stress of Christmas! I'm pretty much finished decorating. Still need to clean up a bit, but I haven't even thought about shopping! The girls don't get out until 12/21, so the next 3 weeks will be crazy with school, etc.! Plus the 2 high schoolers have mid-terms!

I know there's things I can do, and I will! I really want to keep up with my running since I feel like I'm gaining some momentum. I'm not going to get out of control with the eating! I just had to get this off my chest.

Now I think I'll eat lunch! Subway again (I have the other half of my sandwich)!
