I'm A Guest Blogger Today

Good morning everyone.  Happy Friday!

 I had a pretty rough week, actually it was not a great two weeks but who is counting.  My kids have given me a run for my money, my son was moody, had trouble sleeping and was just not "right."  Yesterday, he came home from school in a better mood and had his first good night's sleep in a couple days.

Mr. RWM was away for most of this time, which always contributes to a harder week for the kids and I.  They miss him and so do I.  This family works best when it is four of us not three.  Luckily, this was an odd week as Mr. RWM is not usually gone for that long.  We survived and everything was better as soon as he walked in the door.

This brings me to todays post at Fit Moms and Full Plates.  Dani and Pam are the writers for this blog and Dani is also a fellow Tough Chik, Sweet Pink Ambassador and fellow Rhode Islander.  They are doing a series about being a mom and finding the time to train.  What keeps us motivated and who inspirers us.  Their goal is to show moms that making time for your own health and wellness is just as beneficial to your family as well as to yourself.  I was happy to do this post as I joke that I am a "part-time single mom."

This post comes at a great time, because through all my struggles this week, I still made time for some pretty good workouts.  Bottom line, it can be done if you want it.  I hope you enjoy my post on Fit Moms and Full Plates as well as some of their past posts.  You will find lots of motivation and ideas there.  Have a great weekend!

Run Strong, Think Big!


  1. I'm looking forward to reading the series since I'm a mom of 5, volunteer, blogger, and training for a half marathon in May. I need LOTs of tips and inspiration.
