Gaining Control....

Hello friends - I have not blogged lately mostly because I haven't really had much to say.  I am working a lot, I am working out a lot and in the middle of that I am spending time with my family.  I feel like there are not enough hours in the day to do all of the things I want to do.  So, I have been making time for the most important: the work that pays me and makes sure we still have a roof over our head, the working out that makes sure I keep up with my body and the training for the 10 mile in October and above all - the people in my life that make it all worth it. 

The most important two are these faces: who would not want to wake up at 5:15AM every day to make sure that they had time every night after work to spend with these two little people! 

Inspiration at its finest!
 I find myself feeling down about not being able to keep up with the laundry, folding of said laundry, cleaning the house, and just generally making sure our home is a peaceful place to be.  There are days when I feel like I need to take a week or two off from work and spend them at my house going through stuff, throwing stuff out, getting stuff ready to sell on Craigslist or a garage sale and I am not even sure if that would help! 
I think for me working out has really helped me not go totally nuts over this stuff!  Honestly, as much as I try to come off as put together and knowing what I have to do each day - there are days I don't know my head from my "you know what!". 

I am not really sure what the point of this post is - maybe just needing to purge some emotions that are in my head right now.  It's hard to feel like a success in one or two areas of your life when you feel like you are failing at so many others!  I am not going to talk about all of the areas I am referring to - they are personal and I am just not ready to go there on such a public forum. 

The biggest lesson for me is that no matter how uncontrollable some of the things in my life are - there are certain things I can control.  I can control what I eat, how I feel about what I eat, when I workout, when I rest, when I snuggle with my babies, when I walk with my babies, when I smile, when I laugh and when I cry! 

What do you do or say to yourself when you are feeling out of sorts?
