How is it time for October Runfessions already??? I can’t even handle it. Let’s head on over to Marcia’s Healthy Slice, so we can lay it all out there!
That I am struggling with momming right now. These tweenage and teenage years are something else, and there’s just no being prepared. To deal, I am having to call on all my tricks, patience and creativity to keep it together and man, is it exhausting. I love my kid to the moon and back (or “3000”, if we need to quantify it and you get my nerdy reference), and I hope I’m doing right by him each and every day.
That I’m feeling heavy lately. I have mentioned that we don’t keep a scale in the house, but maybe I’ve just reached a plateau with my fitness and eating. This week, In made the mature decision to stop relying on a morning donut with my coffee and get back into proteins and better nutrition. Ironically, I hard boiled a dozen eggs, and they were quickly devoured by other folks in the house. At least my attempts to be healthier are spreading.
That I am so ready for the humidity to take a hike. We got spoiled with some really pretty running mornings: mid 60s with 50-60% humidity and it was glorious. This morning comes and it was right back in the 70s and the air was so thick you could chew it. Everything just felt more difficult and I can only hope that things are better for my next run.
That it feels like I’m starting over at 9Round. I worked so hard to get to 100, and the next milestone is the 200 Workout Club! Ack! Of course, I’m going to get there, but it’s just a little discouraging to know that I have to double what I just worked so tirelessly to complete. Will I do it? Heck, yes, but I can’t see the fire kicking in until around 150 or so.
That I am so excited for Halloween, but don’t feel exactly ready for it. The house is decorated. I have the setup for my trunk for our neighborhood Trunk Or Treat. Little man (and the rest of the family) have their costumes ready. We have plenty of candy (and non-candy) treats and I even wrote a fun post about Easy Halloween Costume Hacks. It still feels like something is missing.
And those are my October runfessions. Not so bad, and it definitely feels good to have all that out in the universe, so I can have some fun this weekend!
We are also joining in with Fridays with Fairytales and Fitness, so check out that link up and share your week in fitness!
