Welcome to the last week of July 2012…August is almost here! So I’m kicking off Monday with my Boot camp workout, a great breakfast and a new motto.
Boot camp today was an arms workout and later on today will include a killer HIIT workout I’m thinking about trying this one. I said I wanted to get back in the pool this could be a great way to do it and make it count!
New Motto: (courtesy of degree)
Part of my mission to live more and worry less is getting organized! The hardest part about my new stay at home mom/ freelancing gig is the feeling that I’m not accomplishing anything. I make to-do lists but when the schedule of the day gets off so does the entire list. It drives me crazy! I like the feeling of accomplishment. There is nothing more satisfying than crossing an item off the to-do list. (nerd – yup I am!)
The goal is to get organized and get my office set up properly. Start scheduling office hours and kid time so everyone knows what is expected of them. I grew up in a small business. I knew from age 5 when I could bother my parents and when I couldn’t. I’m struggling a little in setting up those boundaries with my kids, and I hate using TV as a babysitter. But sometimes an hour with a TV is better than a CRAZY mom.
My question is am I worrying too much? Is this something every work at home mom struggles with? I knew the most important part of the new life was going to be making plans so everyday would have a purpose. For the most part I’ve stuck to it. I still get up early. Get in my alone coffee time, workout/shower and blog time. But I feel like the second my two guys wake up the whole day is crap shoot. Some days it’s great my work goes well. People call when I can actually talk and nap time goes off without a hitch. Other days I’m on deadline, my kids aren’t listening and I feel a nervous breakdown on the horizon.
I think getting a realistic plan in place will help eliminate a lot of the tension I can feel building when things aren’t going as planned. Or maybe I just need to loosen up and worry less… I’m working on it.
