Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

One Of Those Days When Life Gets In The Way

Well, today was "one of those days". You know the one, where you are driving down the interstate and your car window gets stuck and won't roll back up. It of course was only 8 degrees and 6:30am. And of all places, I was on my way to register my son for pre-school, which in itself is ridiculous. See, registration opened at 8:45am. But unless you got there super early, then chances were slim that you'd get into the class. At around 6:30ish, I was number 16 at that point.

Yeah, that's how my day started, and the morning didn't seem to get much better. My plans of going to the gym were also side railed. So I tried another option.

I told Lil Man we could watch a movie while I ran on the treadmill. He seemed in agreement with that. So that's just what we did. He is currently into The Polar Express. (He calls it the train movie).


So, he got comfy on the couch while I got in my walk/run. I was actually 'allowed' to run 1.5 miles today during today's walk session. And today's walk/run was 50 minutes instead of 40. Progress people - I see progress. 

Tomorrow's plan is for 4 miles (my longest so far). I'm planning to hopefully finally get outside in the bitter cold and run with some other running buddies (or well at least run part of the time with them.) They are running farther, and possibly faster than me, but at least I will be out there 'with them'. And right now, after today, I think that's exactly what I need.
