It's All Fun And Games Until

It's all fun and games until the stomach bug hits your house and your entire schedule gets rearranged. Yep, our first sickness of the school year. Lil Man's first day missed. Thankfully the stomach bug was very short-lived. He was actually almost back to normal in just a few short hours.

But because of germs (his and me just being paranoid of picking up other germs) we didn't make it to the gym all week. He was well enough to go, but yeah... I have an issue with germs.. so we skipped.

I was able to get in some treadmill runs, and a run here or there with Miles.

But overall my week felt really off because I didn't make it to the gym. I guess I'm just a gym rat.

However, I guess that I can't say that it wasn't an active week, because as I type this I'm at 91,560 steps for the week. And technically the day isn't over yet.

And after finally getting to the gym yesterday, then outside for a short bike ride, my legs were feeling it. So I was happy to recover in my Zensah recovery tights. I wore them all afternoon and my legs were much happier by the end of the day. It was warm enough to sit out on the deck and enjoy some quiet time.

I did however get my fastest treadmill mile this week.

That I was super happy about it. Now, I just need to work on stretching that mile into 2 and so on. We shall see.

I just planned out my week with family time / workouts / blogging  and so forth. Here's to hoping everyone stays well!

On a side note - I'm trying to work on building my Instagram account.. if you are on Instagram and would like to follow me.. you can find me here

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
