is it a burn out?

burn out! holy shit!  I think I am now recovering from a total burnout or hopefully recovered I should say.   have you ever had a burn out?  I don’t think it’s the Arianna Huffington one where I collapse and fall on the floor and wake up a new woman, but it is definitely something i am recognizing now that january is wrapping up.  really, i am super happy to close the books on january.  since november, life has been a complete blur for me.  I was pumped to spend five days at home followed up by my fave, the annual turkey bowl, black friday and then it ran into the weekend kicking off basketball season. i mean awesome right?  start with a carb lovers dream meal topped with gravy and ending with a post basketball game celebration (1-0 bitches) that when on until the early morning.  the problem is, the events never ended from there.  
when the December rolled around, i got sick, that knocked me out...hard. it then rolled into my 'vacation' time, lol, that is laughable, there was nothi…

A quick win, WATER!

have you started the new Year with 'I am going to eat well?'   how is it going?

how are we going to do it?  that is the biggest battle.  here are some tips to help you stay successful!  fill up your water bottles the night before, like multiple water bottles with the amount you need to drink throughout the day or a gallon jug, and …

sleep + peace = one day at a time

there is nothing more annoying to me than when i cannot fall asleep. 
i want to sleep
i want to get comfy
i want to be cold to have blankets on me
but i just cannot sleep.

so it is 12:59am, i have been attempting sleep since 10pm.  i have watched fixer upper (congrats chip and jo!) i have explained to my children why they cannot sleep but need to, tomorrow is the first day back from winter break.  i had registered for a 530am workout, cancelled my registration knowing i will need that extra half hour tomorrow i am missing now.  but still, i cannot sleep.

so then i am trying to figure out why.  what is not bringing me peace.
i am thinking it is what to do about grace's volleyball.  really, jo/high school volleyball is keeping me up, seriously, no, let that shit go.

again, peace, that is my word, what is not giving me peace right now that i cannot sleep.

i know exactly what it is.
