Only 24 hours?and Book Giveaway

I haven't been here in a week and its so frustrating because I want to be.  I find myself waking up a bit earlier and going to sleep a bit later to try and fit it all in.  How does one fit in being a mommy, a wife, a teacher, training for a marathon, taking care of a house AND writing a blog??  It's hard. 

How do I fit it all in in 24 hours?? I don't know but I am sure going to try because I miss my blogging everyday.  I think I am going to have to put aside a set time each day...probably in the am...ugh...did I ever tell you I am NOT  a morning person?  My body fights every effort I make to train myself to be a morning body is winning that fight.
So what's new:
*This Monday will be WEEK 3 of training for my 1st marathon.  I have been keeping up with all of my runs and I have been stretching after each run.  I get very tight after the long runs and do feel some pinching but I am staying on top of it and refuse to be stupid...meaning I will rest if my body asks for it.  

*  I PLACED 2ND in that "fake" Triathlon at my gym.  It was the final class for the Tri training I took.  I have to say it didn't feel so fake after...I was so tired and hurting.  The swim was incredibly difficult because the adrenaline caught up with me and messed up my breathing.  I was in 4th place with the swim...moved up to 3rd with bike and then pushed through at the very end and came in 2nd with the run.  There were 6 students. I was the only "chick"...and I use that term only because the instructor used it after I beat 4 of the guys and said..."You got chicked"!

*  My little girl turned 4 on mothers day.  What an awesome day it turned out to be.  The hub went above and beyond and showed that he is "in it to win it"...sorry I can't get Randy Jackson out of my head...BTW...who do you think is going to win idol? or do you not care???

*  QUANTUM WELLNESS GIVEAWAY-  some more info...
I promised I would share some more things about the book and why I thought it was so awesome.  It seems so many people think they can't do it or don't even want to do it..but I urge you to try it as a may be pleasantly surprised.  

  *  I was able to find new foods and try new foods that I had never been interested in. 

  * It helped me wipe my slate clean ...literally.

  *  It helped me to see that if I can do this...I honestly can do ANYTHING and I DON'T need to
     eat 3 candy bars when I am stressed

  *  It allowed me to see that I do have the  power to pass on things that I KNOW are not going to make me feel good or make my body stronger...which is what I want for running.

  *  It took off 6 pounds that I didn't even know I had to lose.

  * IT MADE MY BELLY FLAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope you'll take the challenge on...or try for the books and take it on when you feel like its a better time for you.

I'll check in tomorrow! Good luck with the Giveaway!!!


  1. I'm always amazed at how working moms fit all the endurance training in. Go you!! (& congrats on your "fake" tri!)

  2. It is hard to fit it all in. I always want to wake up earlier but then the need for sleep takes over and I end up waking up when the kids wake up and hit the ground running. :) Congrats on your win! a win is a win. Off to have coffee with the fam.

  3. It is hard to fit everything in. I'm a morning person, so that helps me.
    I'm one of those people who thinks they probably can't do the quantum wellness thing, but...hmmmm...a flat belly means I might have to reconsider.

  4. yay!!! I have missed you...but totally understand that it is tough to keep up blogging when EVERYTHING else is going on! Good job with your training!! woo hoo!

  5. Glad your training is going well... I am so interested in that Quantum Wellness eating... and the flat belly is doubly appealing.

  6. How to fit it all in?? That is the question we all struggle with each day. But YOU do it and that is how it gets done.. :)

  7. Great recap of your week. Congrats on beating 4 guys and taking second. What, what! You freaking rock girl!

    I didn't know you were training for a marathon. I can't wait to track your progress. You are pretty much superwomen in my eyes.

  8. I won't enter this time...

    Four years old! Enjoy it because she'll be 14 before you know it.

    Congratulations on EVERYTHING!! Flat belly! Training! Amazing.
