It's not always easy.

Monday, January 28, 2013

So this weekend was power house awesome activity filled weekend. My husband even told me tonight how awesome he thinks I am and how incredible it was that I swam, biked and skied in 2 days. It was so nice for him to say that. Last night was a hard night emotionally too. To much is going on in our personal live and the moon is full... and emotions where boiling over.

Our marriage is good and Strong! Always has been and always will be!

Last night I had the thought and struggles that a lot of moms/wives have I think. We put so much of US on hold and give so much for the kids, and husband. It's natural and some what expected. I have done that a lot one the past 20 years. It is now time for ME!

I am an unusual breed. I'm 41 and have been a 'retired stay at home mom' for the past 2 years. This is MY TIME! I have finally found myself and what I love. Triathlon is what it is.

Well last nights convo was making me think twice. I was thinking I should not do what I want to do and just sit at home waiting for the 'whim' of the donut man. That thought made it HARD for me to get motivated to do my training that I was to do today anyways. It took all day! I didn't get the run in that I wanted to do. I did get my swim in.

After all of that tonight Donut man says how proud he is of me and how much he loves what I do. He supports it and wants me to keep at it.

Gosh OK I'm happy about that but you didn't make today easy!!!!!

    No, it's not always easy! I really do believe Bill's stroke last March hit me much harder than I realized and allowed me to use it as an excuse not to do as much or participate as much in my life and my activities. And it was just that.. an excuse, not a legitimate reason.

    I'm glad that both Donut Man gave you the props you deserve (because you ARE downright incredible and amazing!) and that SkinnyB didn't let you wiggle out of doing what you really do want to do.
