Reader forgive me for I have sinned.
It has been 40 days since I have last written.
For the first time in 12 years, I am a full time working woman again. About a month ago, I started working full time at the college that both my husband and I work at. I have been part time there since August, and also had a part time job working from home. But now it's 40(ish) hours a week.
It's quite an adjustment and I have been struggling with how to get everything done. The cooking, the cleaning, the parenting, the grocery shopping, the bill paying, the laundry, the training....
I haven't stopped working out cold turkey...but I have definitely fallen off the training schedule that I had been using for myself.
I never realized how much I got done around the house in any given week. I guess when I was working part time, I wasn't just sitting around eating bon bons during my off hours, as one might think. My house looked a LOT better than it does right now, and I could fit work outs in late mornings or early afternoons.
I have been re-training and utilizing the live in staff in my house. You know, those young people that eat all my food, pee on the toilet seats and make most of the messes? I've been making them dial it up a few notches. It's been helpful, but it still isn't how I would like it. And believe me, I am no perfectionist when it comes to housework.
Unfortunately, my live-in staff isn't any help with getting workouts in. The best time for me to work out is usually the butt crack of dawn. I'm a morning person, and I do love the bragging rights you earn when you complete a work out before most of the world is awake. Recently though, my problem has been getting up in the morning. I just can't seem to do it. In fact, Tuesday night I was so freaking tired that I just turned the alarm off for Wednesday morning and...gasp....blew off spinning.
I honestly don't remember how to do this.
My first official TRI of the year is exactly 1 month from today. How in the world will I be ready???
I'm not even sure if I will have the laundry done by then....
