Still struggling

Thursday, May 09, 2013

With my toe healed up and the weather warm out, I've been getting back into biking and running. Except this week. I've been working day shift all week, and that means getting up at 5:45am every morning, and then coming home to deal with children, and homework and the husband. The last 4 days have left me exhausted, and I've found myself crashing at 9pm. And the kettlebell workouts have been hard to fit in. I find myself trying to do them around two boys running around the house and have to stop constantly to tell them to get out of the way. It's annoying to say the least.

The running shoe hunt was successful, I now have a pair that fits correctly. And my Tour de Cure buddy has been dragging me out to ride all last week. Been struggling with keeping my eating habits in check. There has been a lot of stress on me lately with work, and kids...been resorting to bad habits once again that keep coming back to haunt me. Like eating when I'm not truly hungry, or going after stuff just because it's there. And sugar...the sugar has its claws in me once again.
I've also noticed that I'm dealing with a bit of depression...Beltane has come and gone and my mate and I were still not able to see each other. He's been trying to close on a house for the last ten months, and due to government red tape he's been stuck down in Texas, unable to make plans. He's supposed to close tomorrow if nothing else goes wrong, so hopefully after he's moved we'll be able to see each other. I miss him badly, and three years is a long time to go between seeing someone you love. Hopefully that situation will be resolved relatively soon though.

    Hang in there!

    Please, try to enjoy having those little ones running around - before you know it they will be grown & gone and you will find yourself wishing that you could go back in time to relive just five minutes of your life with them in 2013.

    God bless!

    Three years is a hardship! Be kind to yourself in your struggles. You are doing so much and need to step back and admire the mountains of your efforts...results will come.

    Be well!
