*Edit- This was written yesterday morning, but ironically as I went to publish it, my blog was down and continued to be down for 24 hours. It kind of goes nicely with this post though. Ha.
Workout Thursday night:
Taught a Y50X class (just like the Sweaty Sunday Workout) and then a strength training class.
My legs are really feeling it today since I had run yesterday morning too. Eeekkk… I didn’t even take any sweaty pictures of myself last night. I guess it’s your lucky day.
I have no idea what went into this stir fry last night.
I also tried to be cool and use chop sticks.
I do know that a whole lot of goodness went into this creation of sweet cinnamon crisp peanut butter “nachos” the other day.
Yep. Flatout cinnamon crisps, some apple cinnamon Quaker Popped snacks, and a chocolate chip cookie dough Quest bar (microwaved for 15 seconds) topped with melted coconut oil, low calorie peanut butter frosting, PB2, chocolate Better ‘n’ Peanut Butter, etc. Sweet nachos- good idea, huh? They were delightful and I have a feeling they’ll be repeated.
So, um, yeah, how do you know when to “fold ‘em” when you’re trying to balance being a mom, career, training, etc.? I think I’m about to “fold” with a few things. I had planned on heading up to the Natural Products Expo West either this weekend, but I have a feeling it just might be too much right now with my schedule. I always push myself a little too far.
I want to go. I mean I really want to go. I don’t want to miss anything. I want to see all the amazing products, talk to everyone, get a bunch of goodies, etc. but……..
I feel like I keep taking things on and not just focusing on things around here that need to be done. With another race on Sunday and the LA marathon next weekend, I’m feeling like I may be in a little over my head. Hmm… that’s weird.
I keep telling myself there’s always going to be another expo, event, race, etc. right? It’s okay to miss out on a few. I don’t have to do everything.
I know that what I SHOULD do is just be in the moment with my boys while I have the opportunity. I got a really great promotion awhile back and I better do my best to keep it up and keep my bosses happy. That should always be my number one priority.
Speaking of my bosses, yesterday, Judah gave my this flower and said, “I picked the perfect flower just for you mom”.
He later said to me, “I don’t like you” after a little incident, but we’ll focus on the flower.
Joaquin colored me a picture.
He continued to remind me how much I loved it all day.
So, with that, I’m going to put my mama priorities first for the rest of the day. I think that’s the better decision for everyone.
I don’t “need” to go to the expo (although it would be amazing), I do need to go to the grocery store as we have no greens or more importantly broccoli slaw in the house.
Sometimes you just have to fold ‘em I guess.
Sometimes you also just have to start your day with an extremely strong almond milk mocha in a cool mug.
Sometimes you have to take deep breath, a step back and look at the big picture (even if it’s cloudy) and tell yourself to slow down.
Sometimes you have to wonder why your toddler thinks it’s okay to say “I’m drinking poop.” when you give him his hot cocoa at 6:00 am.
Yeah, we better work on that, huh?
Have a good one!
Ever feel like you have to “fold ‘em”?
