I feel like I’ve been a little bit MIA. If you read my last blog post, you may have noticed that I was a little tired. (I still am.) Last night was really hard for me for some reason and I finally had a good cry (I seriously haven’t cried in months!) so today I am feeling slightly better. Nothing specific, just the usual “tired overwhelmed and worried mom” type of blues.
During the weekend I found a couple of blog posts that really helped me get it together:
1) The Motherhood Days We Should Talk About (this was seriously my exact weekend)
& 2) Postnatal Depletion
Sometimes words can offer up so much support, which is why I really wanted to share them here with you. It’s nice to just remember that you are “normal” and not alone. If I didn’t have a few bad days here and there, I wouldn’t be able to fully enjoy the good ones. Also, I officially need to get more sleep one way or another. Just look at these guilty faces:
They are too cute to care anyway.
This weekend I finished a book, Girl On The Train. YAY! (I had a goal at the first of the year to read 12 books in 2015. So far I’ve read 4…I’m hopeful I can do it though. Either way, that is 4 more than I read last year!) Has anyone read this book?? Please let me know what you thought about it! Did you like it? Was the ending surprising? What about the characters? Author? I tried to talk to my husband about it, but he hasn’t read it, so it was a little pointless. Overall, the book was entertaining. I maybe would have wanted some more depth to it, but still, I couldn’t put the book down so that says something.
Last week I only went running twice. I’m not proud of it, but literally it is all I could find time for.
Total Weekly Miles: 6.4 miles
Total Weekly Time: 1 hour 5 min
Total Weekly Elevation Gain: 531 feet (my quads felt it)
Monthly Miles: 13.1 miles (I’m running at least 29 by the 27th in honor of my 29th birthday)
I didn’t run this morning (shameful, I know), however, I will run tonight before my yoga class. I may have missed my Monday morning workout, but I refuse to cancel out Monday all together. It’s a new week and I’m going to get my act together, OK.
There you have it, a little update. Nothing too special. Get excited though, because this week I have some fun posts to come! As in “giveaway” fun. As in “free stuff” type of fun. Are you excited yet? Good.
