Do you ever feel like you need to hit reset on your life? Lately I have been stressed and not fully present in most things I was doing because I was doing too many things to do anything well. It became clear to me this morning that I need a reset badly, to re-prioritize, rebalance and get back on plan. It's easy for me to get wrapped up in things, mainly work lately and let everything spiral out of control. So I am prioritizing my mental and physical health.

I will do this by taking a sick day tomorrow, even though the pleaser/perfectionist part of me feels obligated to go in for the 13 hour day that was planned. I am already sick and working that much I know would make it worse. I have to say that choosing myself this time feels really good.

On a different note. last night Cory and I got an email from Coach Charley outlining what the next few months of training will look like. It was so exciting to think about getting the train moving that will hopefully carry us all the way to Coeur d'Alene. We are searching for a house to rent in Coeur d'Alene, for Cory and I to share with my parents and our combined five dogs (yes, five!) CDA is a small town and rentals fill up quickly. I hope to have a place lined up this week, wish me luck!

Do you ever need a reset?


  1. Yes, I definitely take resets. You just need that every once in a while - be it time for yourself, a break from the stressful, etc. Hope your day off is going well. Thinking of you!!!

  2. I take resets, sometimes more then once a year, we all need time for ourselves, a break.
