I know ya'all are just dying to read about my action packed weekend. And to see three hundred random blurry photos of all that fun however I am the sheer definition of whatever it is that lay beyond freaking tired so you will have to hold your horses and wait until tomorrow for me to get all that greatest organized.
In the meantime, I wanted to talked about something I will be dealing with today.
Normally I can suck it up with the best of them. I have an almost 3 year old who still doesn't always sleep in his own bed or all night long and is having separation issues with
my boobs nursing so having to get the kids ready and head off to work each day when I'd really rather not is nothing new. I used to having getting to do it all by myself 95% of the time with my Hubbs not with us during the week.
But we just came back for the third weekend of not getting home
until dawn of the next day much later than we should. I'm not looking for sympathy here. I knew our summer activities would be hectic and I am the one who mostly sets the schedule so I made my bed, right?!
What I will struggle with today is the how to stay awake and productive when I put myself in these situations and still have to work outside the home.
If I was a stay-at-home mommy I dream that I could just sleep in and nap as needed. I know that isn't always the case either!
When I was frantically grabbing food to bring to work this morning I don't leave my office and take a lunch break of course we just returned home so fresh fruit and healthier options were scarce not like I would have grabbed them anyway. What I did grab was a pbj on toast and a big cup of coffee and I now wish it was an even BIGGER cup of coffee. I also grabbed a cinnamon crunch bagel from Panera Bread, pine nut hummus and some bread
not carrots to eat my hummus with.
So starch, starch and you guessed it more starch!
But that is what I all too often do. I eat myself awake.
Do you do the same? Or is it just me?
When you are pressed for time and sleep deprived what tricks do you use to get through your day and be able to stick to your normal schedule?
Because I still have a 6 -7 mile run tonight followed by Insanity.
It's Day #422
I'll leave you with evidence that the way I am feeling today is worth it...
Off to draw eyes on my eye lids, just incase.
