Does any other working mom ever feeling like they just can’t get ahead?! I’m exhausted and it’s only Tuesday. I have really been slacking off on cooking this week.  Monday we ate the leftover Paleo Cashew Chicken…today was Mac n Cheese for the kids(but hey, it was organic at least) and frozen Cedar Lane-Baked Eggplant for me.  I felt like I was constantly running from one thing to the next today.  I’m also a single parent 90% of the time because my husband travels a lot, and when he is home he’s usually working late.   The entire weight of cleaning this house, grocery shopping, cooking, yard work, everything with the kids, renting out our other house, and arranging all the insurance and repairs from a recent car accident falls on me.  It wears on you after awhile 😦 I’m sorry crying session is now over!!

Today during our lunch run we ran 5 miles.  The first 2.5 miles we ran with our coworker that needs help to pass her fitness test, dropped her off, and continued to run another 2.5 miles.  The first 2.5 took us 30 minutes, we tried to pick up the pace the second half, we finished that in 23 minutes.  Even though we’re trying to help her run, we are trying to train for a trail run 10k that’s on Nov 8th.  It’s no ordinary 10k, it’s all sand/mud and hills.  Also… I need new running shoes! Any suggestions?

After work WOD: I had 50 minutes by the time I got home from work today to get my oldest son’s homework done, workout, and get my youngest ready for t-ball and head out the door.  I still got my WOD in, I had to skip the strength again 😦 I hate skipping strength.  Today’s WOD was no easy thing.  There was a few times I just wanted to stop, but I pushed through and made it all the way to 20 min.  I figured since I was under the minute time-cap each time I had no excuse to quit.
