This was an interesting week for me. I had great workouts, but eating was completely out of control!! Here are the numbers (and I won't be including the number of times I ate junk I shouldn't have!):
Swim: 5500.00 Yd 2h 01m
Bike: 3h 16m 20s
Run: 9.68 Mi 1h 33m 38s
Total: 6h 50m 58s
Flossing: every day!!
Balance is everything, and it's definitely something I struggle with. I do a lot of things, and really try do them all well. However, I can always tell when I have too much on my plate because I start to feel like I can't do everything well. This week I had great workouts and practicing (last performance in a while is this afternoon), but my eating was definitely not great, and I felt like a less-than-stellar mommy.
The more I think about this, though, the more I realize that this is what life is about--taking these experiences and learning from them. Seeking balance is tricky, and balance is something that is constantly changing. I will feel happier and more fulfilled if I can flow within the balance instead of always trying to force it. I will stand in the middle of the teeter-totter instead of running back and forth to each end.
