Coffee Date

Coffee Date

I cannot even begin to tell you how happy I am that it’s Friday. Some weeks fly by, other weeks hit me hard from the start. This week was kind of in between. I’m looking forward to the weekend and hope to get a little rest. Before that, let’s have coffee!


If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have actually cut back significantly on the amount of coffee I’ve been drinking. I don’t drink it every day anymore, and when I do have a day when I feel like drinking it I usually don’t even finish a whole cup. This morning I grabbed some coffee on the way out the door at 4:30am heading to coach the 5am class up at CrossFit 70. I don’t know how I worked out at 5am everyday for as long as I did… that is SO early.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am super proud of my little girl for rocking out her first week of “school” – She is only going half days 2x a week, but she loved it. The teachers said she was a natural. She did have an accident on the playground on her first day. Of course MY kid would be the one to come home with a goose egg on her forehead and a gnarly bruise on her hip on her first day of school! She still wanted to go back, so it must not have phased her at all.


If we were having coffee I would tell you that I still struggle accepting the fact that I just can’t do it all. Running a CrossFit, blogging, having a “day job”, school,  running a family and a house is just a lot. Most nights after coming home from CrossFit I barely have enough energy to make dinner and get the kiddo in bed before collapsing myself.


 This means dinner dishes often sit overnight and laundry goes through far too many “touch up” cycles than I’d care to admit. I would tell you that while I still struggle with it, I have also come to accept it is just a part of this season for now. I keep reminding myself it won’t be like this forever. At least I hope not… Ha

If we were having coffee, What would you tell me?

  1. I love these posts!

    I would tell you that you are rocking it. You may not be able to do it all (because no one can), but you’re doing a lot! You should be proud!

    I would also tell you that even though I don’t really drink coffee, today I would love one – iced and full caff.


  2. I would say your man can wash some dishes. They may not do it the way we like it but we need to let them do it. Just saying…I would also tell you that dishes in the sink overnight is normal. Getting rest is way more important.


    1. Thing is he’s just as busy as me. He runs a little bit more of the CrossFit business side so I take care of a little more on the homefront. It all evens out in the end!


  3. I would tell you that I am in the same boat as you! I seem to always be looking at a pile of dishes, toys and laundry that need my attention! But my kids are happy and healthy and we are living life!
