Isn't that the way with life.. always getting there? I am struggling this week with balancing, but I am getting there. I didn't work out yesterday I chose to stain the deck because frankly I cringe every time I look outside. I can't stand the project half done it is driving me BONKERS to look at. They were also calling for rain on Friday (now that has diminished) so I thought I better get it done while the weather was beautiful.
Great plan, but I had to shift things around. My work out yesterday being one of them. The good news is that leaves me time for a run on Saturday where I am not racing back to ... fill in the blank. The bad news I feel like a loser for not being able to fit it ALL in. I even texted with P yesterday about it trying to talk myself into it being the right and good thing, still as I laid down last night I was disappointed in myself. I didn't get the deck finished (I didn't have the right tools and frankly those post took FOREVER) I didn't get my work out in at all (I should have at least gone on my mile) You see where my head space was...
In truth, the time was NOT wasted at all. I got a pretty big section of the deck done and as I said those posts were not fun. Today I should be able to finish up with the color to be able to add in the white on Saturday. I will have time for my run, because I am MAKING the time. I will shorten my strength portion but I will get that in too. This balancing thing is a lot more difficult than I thought. It really is not as simple as I am not going to do X today so I can do Y. It is more like I will do this portion of X today tomorrow and Thursday so I can fit in some of Y at the same time so on Saturday we can do ABC. Maybe that algebra was needed after all!
So anyhoooo... today's post is super short, tomorrow's may be as well, so I can balance a little more of this in with work so I can get outside to do the things!
PS please don't suggest getting up earlier and doing my work out... I have been STRUGGLING when that alarm goes off at 5. I usually lay there until 530. If I set the alarm to 530 still I have an easier time of waking. I don't know my body is being weird. I also know I have to break this because from the looks of the weather I am going to need to get my runs in earlier VERY SOON.
Signing off with this.. Anyone have any tips on balancing? It is much more difficult than I imagined, especially when you write out your plan on Monday and by Tuesday you go .. well ok.. let's change it.
Peace Love and Light
