Good morning folks! Is anyone else completely sick of winter yet? I’m seriously so done with having dry, itchy skin. It seems to be the worst this year and I can’t just can’t apply enough lotion to save my life!
Monday’s are always 1RM test days for strength at the gym, which makes me happy. I love pushing to reach a PR. Yesterday we were working on power snatch and given this movement was in the first Open workout, I thought I could easily get 75#. No such luck. I managed 55, but couldn’t make 65 happen. Since there was a bunch of new people in class, I kept working at 65 while they learned the movement. I could feel myself doing everything wrong and I just couldn’t get it down today. It’s so weird considering I was so close to getting 75# during the WOD. Oh well, next time!
The WOD was 3 rounds for time. 30% max pullups, max pushups, max situps, 30% max squats. Seriously, I don’t think the raw spot on my butt from all of the situps two weeks ago has healed yet!! Again since there were so many new people, I wasn’t able to use the green band for my pullups like I usually use, so Melea set me up with a blue and a red. Which now that I think about it, blue is easier than green so that really didn’t help me at all. No wonder it was so easy! I should have tried two reds maybe? I dunno. Some day I just need to spend some extra time to learn and work on kipping pullups and then I don’t want to worry about bands at all. I finished the WOD in 10:45.
Tuesday morning was the start of a new yoga session. This time there is a smaller class which is kind of nice, I prefer smaller classes to crowded ones. It’s still a killer workout for me and I felt like I wanted a nap afterwards!
Monday afternoon a work friend emailed me about a marketing position opening. I’ve been trying to get a marketing position for as long as I’ve worked at the company and this was a great opportunity! The only thing is that I’m not due back to work until September and the thought of me going back early is really not appealing. I ended up applying just to see what happens.
While pondering what would happen if I actually got the position, I realized that I’d rather be a stay at home mom. This caused me to have a complete breakdown. The thought of leaving Liam with someone else all day during the week really breaks my heart. I want to be there to watch him grow, teach him new things and be there for all his milestones! I don’t want someone else to get those moments with him. I never thought that I’d want to give up my dreams to be a mom! It’s funny how times change. Unfortunately, staying home with my little goober full time isn’t an option right now so I will continue to work towards my dream job.
I’m not sure if I should ask you to cross your fingers for me or not. I want the position, but I’m not sure how prepared I am to go back in May if I happen to get the job.
What is your dream job? Mine is either in marketing/events/social media or a flight attendant for West Jet.
What would you prefer, being a stay at home parent or having a career? Right now, I’d rather be a stay at home mom OR be able to work from home!
