Don’t Forget to Breathe

I forgot how much I enjoyed swimming!



After work yesterday, I decided to hit the pool. Reading Ashley’s Half- Ironman recap motivated me to go for a swim.


I swam 1000m in a little under 30 minutes. I have REALLY been thinking about training for my first triathlon, but I don’t know if I can handle the training with all my other stuff going on.


I have been feeling extremely stressed out lately with all that I am juggling, including:

  • Working 30-35 hours at my main job
  • Working 10-12 hours at my second job
  • Taking 6 credit hours
  • Blogging
  • Thinking about life after college/Career searching
  • Boyfriend/Friends


It felt good to be in the water. The pool was quiet and I liked the feeling of peace around me.I feel like I barely have time to breathe these days. I know that it will pay off in the end. It has to, right?


Mark’s schedule is just as jam-packed as mine (minus job searching and blogging) so by the time Friday night rolled around we were drained.
We did muster up enough energy to make homemade pizza!




We used Publix Bakery dough, added olive oil, marinara sauce, tomatoes, green peppers, mozzerella, and oregano! It was delicious!


Somehow brownies appeared in my oven (hmmm…MARK!!) and we shared a bowl of browines and vanilla ice cream. We were “ultimate fatties” last night.






I’m off to work this afternoon, but I have a trail bike ride planned for this evening, if the weather permits!


How do you get through the most stressful times in your life? I keep telling myself to just keep swimming..but don’t forget to breathe!
