Finding {making} time

mom-wife-employee-student
in that order.

I've learned that in order to be the best I can be at all of these roles I need to be healthy. Sometimes I wonder how I'm going to make the "right" choices when I'm rushing out the door at 6:00am to make it to work on time after I get my son to daycare. It would be so easy to grab a dougnut from the gas station for breakfast when I'm headed to work. I wonder, How am I going to find time to work out without the mommy guilt? Am I going to be a 6 year student to acheive my bachelor's degree? and what about my marriage when we see eachother a good 3 hours a day?

I have to make the time.
Because I want to be the best I can be.

Plan: I am a planner by nature. I plan my meals, my outfit (and my son's) for the next day, my meals, when I'm going to have the time to do homework, a date night, etc.
Luckily I have an awesome husband who helps a great deal around the house and is an awesome daddy. I know I couldn't juggle everything without him.

I also have a plan to train for my 1st 5k of the year. Remember my bucket list ? My goal is to run 3 races in 2013. I've signed up for my first on May 5th and will be sharing my plan tomorrow :) Happy Wednesday!

planning ahead when you are a working mom (and even when you arent) is the best thing for making the days go by smoothly. You need to make sure you schedule "you time" whether it be for working out, manicure, etc. It is hard being a mom.

I am a stay at home mom (for 4 years) turned work-a-holic mom with a husband who travels for work!

I lay out my kids outfits (and my own if I'm not angrily feeling fat that day and change 5 times) for the entire week on Sundays, as well as pre-packing as much as I can for lunches, etc.

It saves loads of time.

You can do it! (and that May 5th race.. im planning on doing the half if I can get m hip in gear to cooperate!)
