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?
