My schedule is killing me. *sigh*

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

So I went back to school full time this semester. And I knew that the added hours were going to be stressful. And I was doing good, right up until I caved from pressure from my mom, and enrolled my kids in sports. Now, I am not opposed to my kids playing sports. Quite the opposite actually. They *need* to be active. What I didn't count on was after signing up my youngest in competitive soccer, I find out three weeks (WEEKS) later that over HALF of his games are away games. Some of them two hours away. Now. You would *think* that this information would be something the parents might want to know about. And all I can come up with is that a man designed the website, (Which is true) LOL And on one hand, I LOVE seeing my kids grow in the sports they are playing, but on the other, I'm becoming more and more stressed. I am spending so much time taking them to and from practice, as well as the games on the weekend, that there is no time for me to work out without feeling stressed that something isn't getting done. My hubby is helping out by taking them to practice sometimes, but he has not been helping with my house, and god. When am I soposed to get all of this done? Then you add in the fact that my son keeps getting sick (today he has pink eye) and guess who has to take off school and take him to the doctor? I finally broke down this morning when talking to my husband. He's going out of town again for business and I explained to him that if I miss more than five classes, that my Professor will automatically drop me from the class. He promised to help out more.
I know working out will help with the stress. Logically I do understand this. Emotionally when I'm feeling like this working out isn't real high on my priority. and you know what? It *needs* to be. Because I can't let outside influences determine my success. The light at the the end of the tunnel is that the end of Oct is the end of the boys' sports. I just need to hang on a little bit longer with my classes and breathe..yeah breathing is good. LOL
I've been doing pretty good on my workouts, even though I haven't been tracking it on sparkpeople. I woke up yesterday feeling so sexy..I was sore from the HIIT Turbo Fire workout and when I put my clothes on, I felt pretty. That hasn't happened in a long time. So I guess I just need to put my big girl panties on, stop being a pu**y, and just deal with it. LOL

I'm glad I got that off my chest. Thanks for the help. LOL

Stay strong I keep telling myself the same thing one more month one more month....and Good luck on your exercises and remember your health is just as important as getting the kids to soccer, and finishing that paper...you matter just as much...!!! emoticon
