// Sheffield has done so well with the transition to his big boy bed – I wish I could be more like him, and just take everything in stride.
// Ever since the half marathon, I’ve had trouble working out. My heart rate shoots up super fast when I’m at Orange Theory, I get tired really easily when working out, and it just hurts to breathe sometimes. Half marathon runners – is this normal? Do I just need to take it easy?
// B and I have been on a super healthy eating kick for the past two weeks – lots and lots of meat and veggies and very little carbs. Ever since I saw myself in that sequin dress for the New Orleans wedding, I knew I had to do something. It honestly hasn’t been that difficult (a little more expensive), and I feel really good.
// B and I have a date night tomorrow night, and I’m super pumped. I told him last week that we really just needed one, and I really wanted some time alone with him. I love my kid, I do, but sometimes I really just need a break.
// We booked a trip to New Orleans for a solid week y’all. We have never been down there for that long at a time. We’ve got trips to City Park and the Children’s Museum planned – and all sorts of good food on the menu. I am pumped for a week off work and some good quality family time. It can’t come soon enough.
// Sometimes I wish I was stronger. Not physically, but mentally. I wish I had the balls sometimes to step up and say something when something isn’t right. It has never been in my personality to step into a situation that will put me front and center, and I’ve always been too shy to say anything (like when a coworker(s) make(s) disparaging remarks about a person’s appearance, sexual orientation, political beliefs), and I really want to change that. I’m not embarrassed by what I believe, so I’m not sure why I find it so hard to interject when something isn’t right.
