The Art of Over-Committing
That's totally a thing too!
|The Mother's Day Classic|
This month of course saw Dave and I run in the Mother's Day Classic. To say my training for it was lackluster would be an understatement. For some reason, after the bathroom renovation and the forced break while it was happening, I couldn't find my running mojo and I basically did no real preparation.
Still managed to do the 4kms in under 40 mins though so I am pretty happy with that.
A funny thing happened though, after doing the run. My running mojo came back with a vengeance and since then I have either gone for a walk or run just about every day since. I've been feeling really good, and on Sunday night I actually managed to run for 20mins non-stop on the treadmill.
As a result of my new-found running mojo, I have signed up for 12 weeks of Operation Move's Learn to Run program. The basic aim is to be able to comfortably run for 30 minutes by the end of the 12 weeks. My personal aim is to be able to run 5km comfortably by the end of the 12 weeks, in time for Father's Day and the 5km run I have signed up for.
Gotta have goals people!
Aside from all the running and walking, I have also signed up and been attempting to undertake the Blog with Pip course. I say attempting, because week 3 has just started and I haven't even finished going through the bloody week 1 lessons! I am so far behind!
Thankfully I still have access to all of the course work for a bit afterwards so I can keep working on it for the next month or so. Phew!
On top of all that I was busy organising my Bloggy Birthday Bonanza Giveaway (have you entered yet?) and making sure that everything was running smoothly on the blog. As well as spending time sharing the love over on Facebook.

And then yesterday, I was lucky enough to go to Sydney restaurant Otto for a delicious lunch with none other than blogging superstar Chantelle from Fat Mum Slim. It was an awesome day, filled with delicious food and lots of fun playing with a new camera that's just hit the market.
On top of meeting Chantelle I also met some other fabulous blogging ladies like Jackie, Trish, Tessa, Leanne, Lisa Jane, & Sammie, and spent the afternoon talking all things photography, food, kids and life. It was a fabulous day and I am so incredibly thankful to Chantelle for choosing me to be a winner of this special giveaway.

With all of this going on I have barely had time to get any Tafe work done, and as a result I am so behind. So if things seem a little quiet on the blog for the next couple of months it's because I am either running or designing. I need to make those two things a priority and so there may be weeks where there is only the Tuesday IBOT post up here.
I will still be hanging out heaps on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter of course, I couldn't limit all my blogging and social media so you probably won't even notice! I may however schedule some posts, and I have a couple of guest posts in my drafts folder that I have been promising people for weeks (sorry if you are one of those people, I promise I will get to them asap!) that I will bash out before my self-imposed blogging limitation.
Of course there is still also the usual life stuff of being a wife and mother and pretending to keep my house clean. So I got a bit going on, but I am trying my best to clear as much as I can so I can get back to blogging ridiculously often!
And so that is what the hell has been going on in my May Madness. How's you're May been? Do you have a habit of taking on too much and not saying no?
