Life is messy and chaotic. No matter how much I want to schedule my life, things just don't always work the way I want them. Over the past week, my biggest hurdle has been sleep. Even when I go to bed early, I have difficulty shutting off my mind. It doesn't help that my 18 year old daughter still lives at home and works until late at night. I worry about her and have difficulty sleeping well until I know that she is home safe. Last night, she got off late and didn't get home until almost 1:30 in the morning. I went to bed at 10:30 but I woke up every half hour to check my phone until she came in and told me she was home. A lack of sleep has made it difficult to get up and work out regularly. However, I am still getting exercise at least three times per week and am losing weight slowly but steadily.

In my last blog I talked about my struggles with learning to live for myself and not everyone else. I have set some goals that I want to reach for myself. These are not based on clothing size or the number on the scale, they are activities that I want to be able to do. One of the big goals that I am hoping to be able to do this summer is hiking up the Barr trail on Pikes Peak. My daughter and I have talked about this for two years and it is something that I have wanted to do but am not in good enough shape to do this. I also want to do destination runs, and more long distance hikes. So I am getting excited to have goals that are solely my own and not based on what others want of me.
