Spreading myself thin

I'm sure most of you who are moms can relate to the following paragraph.

Between my four children, my husband, the house, organizing my mommy group, blogging, and taking care of myself, I feel like I want to scream sometimes.  I mean where is the "down time". Does that even exist??  This isn't really a complaint post but when it comes time for me to workout, I honestly feel like I don't have it in me ever!!You know how you feel when you first wake up in the morning wishing the alarm clock would shut the hell up, well that's how I feel when its time for me to workout at 1pm! I think that's insane.  I currently have a load of laundry washing and drying.  I feel like I should move my bedroom to the basement because I'm either down there working out or doing laundry.  I think I may need to have my iron levels checked.  But then on the other hand I think I may need to learn to let the dishes or laundry wait.  BUT you know if I do it, I will have hell catching up.  Its a never ending cycle I suppose.

Hubby and I celebrated Valentine's Day last night.  I totally surprised him by taking HIM out on a date:) We ate at Ruby Tuesdays(I don't even want to know how much damage I've done there).  We saw the movie "The Avatar".  I highly recommend seeing it!!I got him a few gifts as well.  I wanted to change things up this year and show him that this "holiday" shouldn't be about the woman all the time.  He takes good care of me and the kids, so he deserves it.

I feel a little sad about this but I only made it 13 days in a row working out.(Had a ticker below my weight loss ticker to track).  I wanted to make it 30 days.  I suppose that was a bit unrealistic given my lifestyle. 

I completed W3D1 of the C25K and I must admit that it was hard as hell.  Running for 90 sec/3 minute intervals really suck!!!!I hope my body adjusts because how in the heck will I make it through a 5K??

Well sadly its 11pm and I have a play date in the morning since the kids don't have school.  So I need to finish up a few things and head to bed.

The life of a mom is very harried. I think I'm always behind on something or on everything. I look at that exercise as me time, so when I'm feeling well, I enjoy it.

How sweet you took your husband out on a date! I should do that sometime.

And with execise--13 days in a row is fantastic, but sometimes we really do need to put a rest day in. So don't feel bad at all! You're doing an amazing job--I couldn't run like you're doing! Good going.
