This week was all about pushing through. For some reason, the universe worked every hard against me at every turn. Ugh. So what almost derailed my training? Let’s find out.
Our weather was straight up trash. We went from beautiful temperatures to rain, near-freezing temps, brutal wind, and tornado watches. It was ridiculous and unnecessary. I spent a lot of time checking the forecast and watching the skies.
The Time Change
I do love longer days and lighter nights, but waking up in the dark is hard. Fortunately, it’s Spring Break, which means we don’t have to be up to get A off to school, but going out in the morning moonlight is certainly an adjustment. I’m making it work, but some mornings are tough.
You heard that right: our kitchen appliances really tried to throw me off. From the fridge and freezer breaking, to spending hours ordering an entire new kitchen suite, to dealing with delivery, we had our hands full. I am incredibly grateful to be replacing our 15 year old fridge, range, dishwasher, and microwave, but a lot of time and energy when into that effort this week. The fridge and stove are here. Now we are waiting on the rest (and possibly a replacement new fridge because of a door dent, but we will see how that goes).
I confess that my attitude had much to be desired this week. The weather and lack of sleep got me down. Appliance shopping was stressful, especially when it was more of a need than a want. There were several proverbial balls in the air, and sometimes it’s hard to keep them all going how I want. As a result, I let some negative self talk in, which could very easily have derailed me from my goals.
Ok, so this is clearly the cutest reason for derailment, but Leonidas needs lots of attention, especially in the middle of then night. He’s getting better, but hoo boy, I’m worn out. Is he getting all the sleep he needs? Absolutely. And isn’t that that what matters?
Whew. Let’s put the lid on this week and look forward to an easier time starting Sunday, shall we?
