Random Whining and Not So Much Training

I guess it's this time change nonsense. I knew that the boys would be thrown for a loop a little, but I thought that I'd be able to handle it. I am so.freaking.tired. I went to bed the last two nights at like 8:30. I can't keep my eyes open after dinner. Oy. But on the up side, getting up in the morning is a lot easier when I have more than 5 hours of sleep.

Also I haven't done any kind of training since last Wednesday. So, I suck. Really bad. And, for some reason when I miss my exercise time, I compensate for it by eating really rotten stuff. That makes sense, right?

Ian has this new book, Martha Blah Blah. I'm Laurie Blah Blah.

It's just hard. I want to be able to exercise and be healthy and yadda yadda yadda...but who has the time? I'm all trying to keep up with Angelle and her amazing training schedule, while also trying to work around 4 weekly therapies and watching an infant full time. I just can't. I can't do it and keep my kids entertained and my house in some semblence of order. And take a shower every once in a while.

So. That's my whine for the day. I'm going to aim for a possible bike ride today...maybe that will make me feel better.

On the positive side, this weekend we:
* Went to the Rennaissance Festival and had lots of fun :) No, we did not dress up. We do not enjoy it THAT much. Other people do, though. Not that there's anything wrong with wearing a corset and a animatronic dragon on your shoulder.

*Cleaned out our garage. Like, took everything out, swept the floor, and reorganized everything cleaned it out. It's awesome.

You truly have a lot more going on than me. Just keeping everyone in your house fed and clothed is an accomplishment in my book. :) You are doing a great job.

You do not suck! Remember my motto: low expectations.

Not that you should ditch it all, but don't beat yourself up if you don't stick exactly to your training schedule. Just try and get some exercise in, when you can. You're doing great.

And I would totally count garage-cleaning as a big exercise event.

I agree w/ Cate: You can count cleaning the garage as excersise. In fact, go to Livestong.com, and according to them, cleaning the garage ("excavating from junk") burns 406 calories in an hour. :)
