Oh Shit

So my kids will officially be out of daycare by the end of the month.
I'm starting to have that, holy fuck what I have I done feeling.
Right now I don't work on Friday's and my kids still go to daycare.

Judge all you want, I do me.
This is my day to get shit done around the house and go on my long runs during training. This is also my shopping addiction day, where I buy things no one needs.
When my kids are out of daycare I will be staying with them on Fridays.
Good-bye free time. Hello more money, with no time to spend it.
I'm excited to spend more time with my kids. Especially when the weather is nicer. We have a beach within walking distance and in the next town over is an amazing playground. I plan to be outside  A LOT.
That leaves me with my long runs.
When the F am I going to get those done.
I called the hubs crying and he told me "Babe I know you and if you want to do something you are going to figure out a way to do it, beside your long runs are only like 45 min right? I can just watch the kids"

... I jumped on that bandwagon before he could figure out the math and realize that pretty soon my long runs will be 2+ hours.

He's right if I want to do it I will.
I hope.

The one thing that's really keeping me motivated right now is my two week progress pictures from my challenge group with Adie.
I wasn't going to share them with you until the end, but I need them to remind myself.
These two weeks have been about diet, working out was an afterthought, because life gets in the way some times.

You may not see a huge difference and that's fine, because I do. I am my own worst critic, and I will sit here and point out my own faults until the sun goes down. When I saw these side by sides it reminded me that it really is 80% diet. I think it's probably about 90% diet for me.

Hopefully being home with the kids more isn't a test on my willpower.... which it will be
Hopefully we won't have more snacks around than usual....which we will.
Hopefully I'm not so overwhelmed by everything that I forget about myself.... which I WON'T.

In other news Frozen comes out on DVD today and so does American Hustle.... that calls me a big movie night this weekend.
