What a week to be sick!  There’s way too much to do…and usually I work so much better under pressure. When I started writing this it was a week until Christmas…shopping, menus, wrapping, house, the list goes on and on. And it’s taken me this long to get back to it! Ah…#momlife!
I let go of a lot of things this year…I let the kids decorate the tree and I didn’t fix a damn thing! Can’t I just sprinkle everything with glitter and call it a day? I love Christmas, I love being with everyone but I am SO OVER the pressure; gifts of a certain caliber to name one. I don’t love my children any less for not going over board, and won’t be made to feel bad about it either. The amount of shit under the tree proves nothing. I go through this mom guilt every year and then quickly remember I could care less and I don’t want them to focus on it either.
I am really looking forward to the calendar changing and all the excitement that lies ahead. 2016 proved to be a year of struggle for me, I’m ready to say goodbye.
“How bad do I want it?” – that is what it all comes down to. I really want to reach my goal weight but can’t seem to focus on that, directly anyway. It’s more than just a number.

I bit the bullet and signed up for a half marathon – what the hell was I thinking?! I think this will be perfect! It’s huge and it’s scary!

I’ve often thought about training for a half marathon…and to be honest training will be the perfect distraction. I’ve found a training schedule that involves a lot of weight training not just running. I’ll focus on meeting those goals every week, eating healthy and weightloss will be the “side effect”. I got this shit. I can’t wait to roll through the finish the beach no less!
