My life has been feeling a bit scattered and unfocused. I have not been as focused on my training as I would like to due to life, work and school taking my time and energy. I kind of lost it on Saturday...or in running terms...I hit the wall. I was feeling overwhelmed. How could I ever swim a MILE in July? How would I ever find time to run? Would my foot ever feel better? My eating choices STINK. My husband had been so busy I was feeling lonely. Will I ever see my running buddies again? I am not cut out to do homework for 10 hours straight. Wah, Wah, Wah... And then it hit me...and it was almost comical! Seriously, none of this matters. I was busy being focused on feeling like a "failure" and not being able to do it all. I have a full plate and instead...I want to give THANKS for that plate. I am thankful I have been given opportunties to do crazy things like SWIM a freaking MILE and go back to school while being a Mommy to 3 kiddos. I am thankful that my husband is HERE and ALIVE and working. I am happy I have two little feet..even if one of them is cranky most of the time. I love my running buddies! I need to remember that tomorrow is a new day and maybe I will surprise myself and eat just a little bit better. The last six months of life has made me go to places I never wanted to go and life feels fragile at times. I know I have to work everyday to remember that and not get caught up in the petty things that can bring me down. So enough of that. Life is feeling like a Tossed Salad. A little bit of everything being thrown in the mix and I have decide how I will respond. Bottom line...the stress of grad school will go away, I will survive my triathalon, I do eat my greens, and my husband is a freaking rock star to rally in so many ways this year! I just needed to get that off my chest. I have been loving my long runs and occassional bike rides! Swimming still is OUT there but the family schedule just isn't working with pool time...yet. God definitely met me Sunday and reminded me how much He loves me TODAY....not after a training plan or meeting a goal but just for being ME! Ahhh, good reminder! WEeekend workout...10 miles/Garmin Free! Hour on the Trainer! Shred Level 3! Broke 200 miles! Hoping you all have a blessed week. Love yourself for where you are right now!
