Winter Joggers o.O Really????

WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 19:  Jogger Max Lockwood...

Okay, so I'm still not blogging regularly..but I haven't given up. I think about you often and some of the things I'd like to share and then life gets in the way. 

I was up very early this morning and I came across some of those hard core know the ones that jog in any weather - rain, sun, snow storm... 

My question is WHY? 

Why do you insist on running in bad weather? Why are you out there in the middle of winter? And do you have winter running shoes? How does that work? 

I mean I understand the fundamentals of you love to run and it's good for you or addictive or whatever and I get it in the decent weather...I'll even give you the rainy weather, but winter??? Are you all insane? 

I've done some crazy things in the name of fitness, but running outside in the winter just ain't one of them. Seriously, I really wanna know about the must have to replace them often! And if you're a hard core runner you certainly don't have cheap running shoes. 

Can someone enlighten me?

I feel like this chicken...
I probably look like this... know...
...the crazy eyes...

Happy Saturday and welcome to our new look! Blogger added dynamic views and I figured since this is a new chapter in my life my blog should reflect that. 


That's what my life needs right now. 

I crave the simple things in having time to eat breakfast and enjoy a cup of coffee before I start my day or a simple afternoon nap. But this is the real world and at this time in my life nothing is simple and time is very precious because I can see it flying by, slipping through my fingers. 

Don't get me wrong I enjoy school. I love my course and the wonderful people in my class. I knew it was going to be tough. I knew it would be stressful. I did not know how much of a toll the stress would put on me and my family. I'm on edge all the time. I'm stressing out about everything and as a result I've gained a bunch of weight. 

So, now enter guilt on top of stress. I'm in the cycle of feeling too tired to do anything but knowing if I do I'll have more energy. 

So? What's a girl to do? I know a lot of it boils down to managing my time better. How do I  get everything done in the day without passing out from exhaustion? I need to find time to take care of me. 
If I'm not well how can I take care of everyone else? 

Wish me luck. I'd appreciate a few prayers for me to get my act together. I do hope to blog more...I need an outlet and always enjoy sharing with my readers. 

Hoping you're all well!
