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

Trail Running, Fear, and Me

For a very long time, I let fear (and comparison) stop me. So the fact that I'm still running, pushing past my comfort zone, and finding a stronger me feels good - really good. (Don't Let Fear Stop You)

But I won't lie, it's not easy. And there are some days that I have to literally give myself a very persuading pep talk to get out the door. Sometimes Hubby chimes in with encouragement. Sometimes I'll think of Lil Man and how I don't want him to be held back from doing things that he enjoys because of fear.

Look at what I would have missed this week if I would have let fear stop me?

And with every run, I learn something new about myself. Trust me, I learned a lot when I feel (It Was Bound To Happen).

I am so thankful for a supportive husband. And I'm glad that I'm pushing past the fear and becoming a stronger person because of it. 

I know sometimes people think that (moms especially) who spend time exercising are being selfish for being away from their family. Let me clarify, most of the time, I am exercising while my family is still asleep. Those other times Lil Man is either with me, or having some freedom away from me at the gym - when he isn't having some daddy son bonding time. 

But what I am learning on the trail, on the road, and in the gym is spilling over into my 'everyday' life. Because I am learning that I really am stronger than I thought I was... mentally and physically. 

So yeah - for me, I'm becoming a better Mom and Wife because of the lessons that I am learning on the trails, the road, and in the gym

Are you pushing past any fears in your life?

  1. Good for you for getting out there. I hate that some accuse moms of being selfish when they take care of themselves.

    1. Me too... and it's not selfish at all!
