The Monday Morning Blahs…

It’s another snowy day here in Barrie, calling for continual snow until about 1pm today and that mean lots of shovelling for me.  I enjoy the workout aspect of snow removal but when your entire body is tired and sore, well it’s not something that I am looking forward to at all today.

I’ve challenged myself to a 100 straight days of running, and yesterday I hit the 7 day mark.  It doesn’t seem like a lot in the grand scheme of this challenge but it is the most consecutive days that I have ever run.  I am also starting training for an Ironman 70.3 race this summer which also requires a lot of swimming and cycling as well.  The combined toll of these three disciplines along with being a single father of four children, well I always have A LOT to do.  Cleaning the house, grocery shopping, laundry, paying the bills, etc..

It takes a lot of mental energy to keep all this up as well, add on the issues that you will always have raising teenage daughters.  Wow, it’s been a tough weekend that has left me physically and mentally exhausted.  Waking up this morning, I didn’t sleep very well and am not sure how I am going to get through what today has to offer.  Continued web site creation for a startup baking company that I am trying to launch, based on Sugar Cookies.

North West Bakery – homemade Sugar Cookies made with love proudly serving Simcoe County and the Greater Toronto Area.

The snow is still falling…

As I type that a smile washes over my face.  I know that I can do this, I know I can take care of everything that needs to be done today and when my head hits the pillow tonight I will have completed a lengthy to do list and a warm sense of satisfaction will wash over me as I drift off to sleep.

Afterall, as a fellow blogger said this morning, “Do sharks complain about Monday? No. They’re up early, biting shit, chasing stuff, being scary. Reminding everyone that they’re a fucking shark.”

Thanks Amy, Amy Bishop Fitness I choose to be a shark.
