Yesterday was a hellacious day. I was so busy I didn't read my normal set of blogs. I really felt it when I by mid afternoon, I felt myself spiraling out of control. I reigned myself though, I allowed myself a little room, but I didn't get out of control.

Monday, I completed the Couch to 5k week 2 day 1 with Jonas. He said the sweetest thing!  I asked him, "Jonas, you ready to do this?" He says back to me, "Mom, you taught me last week, I can do anything I put my mind to.  I did the first week, I can do it all!"  Way to go to my 9 year old!

I feel like I have a better handle on today. My eating this morning has been great. I attended a webinar about data warehouse designing stuff to actually work on some of my goals at work. Running again tonight and a kettle-bell workout before bed.

Something I need to work on... getting Jonas tired enough that he goes to bed at or before 9pm, so when I have to get him up at 6, he's ready to go instead of the dragging mess I've been dealing with, that is making me late to work, so I feel bad taking a full hour lunch to workout. Any parents out there with incentives I can try to get him in bed earlier?  It's not that he's fighting going to bed... he loves reading and can stay up reading until 11 or even midnight if I'm not careful!

Today is a new day and it will be a great one! 

Until tomorrow my friends! Keep pressing on!  I believe YOU and I can do ANYTHING we put OUR minds to!

good job for not losing control.

Good Luck with the bedtime. I have 6 kids, and still struggle to get them to bed. They all have so much energy they could stay up till 11:00 and get up at 6:00 without any problem. You could maybe let Friday or Saturday be his "late-night" and then shoot for an earlier bedtime the rest of the week. :)
