For the love of things, I can’t believe we’re creeping in on the last of January already. Not surprisingly I’m already behind on blogging! Hey, I’m going to cut myself some slack since I **DID** run the Houston Marathon on Sunday (with almost no legitimate training) Monday was MLK day and Houston was closed for ice on Tuesday and Wednesday. When life “as normal” finally resumed on Thursday I was struggling to keep track of what day it was and fighting off the nasty flu virus someone brought me! I wasn’t even remotely concerned with the past week’s chase goals! I just wanted to make sure Little P and I weren’t going to get sick. To be completely honest, I truly enjoyed the 2 extra days to sleep and recover. It made all the difference in the world. My body was craving rest.
School is back in session for me and I am determined not to fall behind. It’s so easy when you’re a busy mama and classes are all online with no set schedule. Little P is back in a proper after school program so that frees up an hour or so every afternoon for me to dedicate to studying. I wasn’t crazy about the financial aspect of this, but even after only one day, the mental and emotional aspect is already paying dividends! She’s loving the play time with her friends and has already asked if I could pick her up just a bit later. Thank you Club Rewind!
Seeing as though it’s already past my bedtime I’ll get right to this weeks goals:
- Study during lunch and after work- no fuckin’ around on social media
- Commit 30 minutes every night to Operation Valor tasks
- Get up by 5 am for a run, cross-training or just extra studying/me time
- No fast food. This means plan. I’ll need to pick up groceries soon.
- Spend quality time with Little P every night. Reading, playing, dancing…doesn’t matter as long as she has my full attention.
- Up my water intake. I’ve been slacking with so much time at home.
That’s all I got for this week, can you think of anything I missed?
Here’s a few photos from my time away
Starting line Houston Marathon 2018
Usually this is where the wheels fall off and it’s not even the half way point. Not this time!
Made it to the beer mile!
DONE! All smiles! No PR this time.
My life seems to be in a perpetual state of “start overs.” Just when I think I’ve got a handle on things and everything feels like it’s finally going in the right direction someone screams “PLOT TWIST” and I’m again... Continue reading →
Well this week certainly didn’t go as planned! Does it ever? One of the things I struggle with most is letting things go that I can’t control. I have a tendency to beat myself up over little things and that... Continue reading →

If you’re anything like me you start your year, month, week or even day absolutely jazzed and ready to crush some epic goals. You also may find that life jumps into the way and tries to make it difficult to... Continue reading →
Already heading into week 4 of this new year and let’s just say that week 3 wasn’t nearly as goal smashing as I’d hoped it would have been. My body seemed to need more recovery than I realized. Then life... Continue reading →
Happy Tuesday! How are YOU feeling today? It’s week 3 and I’m still hangin’ on and kicking ass (in my own mind of course!) Sunday I successfully completed the Chevron Houston Marathon and don’t ask me how, but I shaved... Continue reading →
Good morning and happy Monday! We are now headed into the second week of 2017! I hope you’re still slaying goals and shattering your limitations (Thank you LoneStar Spartans!) Going into this week I have already logged 40 miles and... Continue reading →
Damn, it’s really been nearly 5 months since I’ve done one of these?!?! Holy crap, that’s ridiculous. No wonder I don’t feel like I’m reaching my goals….I HAVEN’T FREAKING MADE ANY!!! I won’t bore you with all the blah blah... Continue reading →
It’s been a whirlwind of a week and I certainly don’t mind that this one is in the books, but if I’m being honest, it wasn’t all bad. There were definitely highlights! I still don’t understand water polo but it’s fun to... Continue reading →
