Modern woman

So it's been a little bit since I've posted.  

First, work is crazy busy as usual.  It has become the norm that I stay late 30-90 minutes every day.  When I actually leave at 5pm, it's like going home early.  But I have to say, for once I enjoy my job.  It's challenging and satisfying, a great combo right?  And I am so happy to be growing personally and professionally.  

But since I'm coming home around 6pm during the week it means I can't fit in the gym AND making dinner AND life things AND hanging out my sweet husband.  Usually I can fit in one or two, but that's it.  It reminds me of the modern woman pin from Pinterst.  

So true right?!  

And I'm trying to be more healthy but it is TOUGH!  It feels like I'm always taking two steps forward and then one step back.  I'm sure you other modern women feel this frustration too.  I'll have a day with good healthy food, but the next day I can't make it to the gym and I'm eating thai.  Grr.  As a result I'm moody and self conscious.  Did I mention I am the matron of honor for my BFF's wedding in May?  Yeah, lets add to the stress.  

Oh well, at least it's one step forward, right?  On to some good news!  

I started running again!  After about 4 months of no running, I'm able to squeak in some easy runs at a snail's pace, but hey, at least I'm running!  I think my new shoes help.  :)  I felt like with my new start, maybe I needed to get some new shoes (the old ones could have been the problem!).  Is anyone else out there a tad superstitious about working out or work out gear?  No?  Maybe it's just me wanting new running shoes.  

Also I got a bicycle!  I need an alternative to running since I really need to take it slow and a bike seemed to be a good investment.  Let me just tell you, it's been about 10+ years since I have been on a bike.  Oh man it is awkward and a little terrifying and fun all at the same time.  I'll have to post more about it later.  

A third thing, I am done with taxes!  Woot!  They were much easier this year, which was wonderful.  That's one less thing to stress about.  

I hope everyone out there is doing well! 

Love & Hugs!
