I think I’ve figured it out…

I’ve been sitting here for 5 minutes now, starting at the title of this post struggling to come up with something witty or catchy that will spark my readers attention.

But I’m drawing a blank.

I’ve read the last several of my posts. Man I sound like a broken record?  Yikes…

My hubby is gone this week, so its my first week of figuring it all out on my own again.  Although I’ve done this several times as he has always traveled a lot for work and/or the Army, this time feels a little different.  I am doing my best to get us into a routine, so that when he leaves early spring, we will be at least physically prepared.  The mornings can be a mad rush, so laying clothes out the night before, preparing snacks/lunches, signing homework folders and checking off reading logs all get done the night prior.

This is SO me, except my kids are 9 and 16 LOL

Today I finally decided no more excuses, my sinus crap was gone and it’s time to get back to working out at least 3 times per week.  Last night I planked, and today did an interval workout on my treadmill followed by a 4 minute plank.  I think I might have even smiled afterwards as I looked in the mirror at my beet red face.  I was smiling, WHA?!?  No way!

I figure the stronger PHYSICALLY I feel, the better emotionally I will feel in the end, so my goal is to keep pushing, and get stronger.  I’ve lost 6 of the 9 lbs. I gained with marathon training last year, and my hubby even commented that I look like I am slimming down!  #winning all around.

Today, I didn’t cry.  Despite work drama, home stressors, you name it, I held it together.  #morewinning right?  I know my family is worried about me getting through this, but I am not the woman I was even just a few years ago.  I’ve grown, I like to think, in to a much stronger person.  And I’ve got many of you to thank for that strength.  You amazing support, kindness and friendships have truly added years to my life.  ❤

So here’s to  movin’ forward, right?

  1. you are strong! and its never going to be easy, but youve got a lot of people you can lean on, a lot of friends and family, and i know i HATE sounding like a broken record but if thats what you need to say then say it! I get that way with my depression, i hate to keep bothering people with the same concerns/worries/thoughts over and over, but if thats where i am then thats where i am.

  2. Exercise always, always, always makes things a bit better. Or helps you cope better which makes things better anyway. Keep moving, keep smiling. This time will pass.

  3. You got this! And I honestly think running/workout out is such a big factor in our emotional well being. It makes me feel so much better when I push through a tough workout.
