Want to go for coffee? (February)

wpid-dsc_0705.jpgPlease join me and my fabulous hosts the first Saturday of each month Lynda at Fitness Mom Wine CountryConfessions of a Runner Mother and Coco at Got2Run4Me

Sit down, enjoy a cup of coffee and chat virtually with all your friends. This is one coffee date you don’t want to miss! Hope you will join us each month.


If we were having coffee, I would ask you if you had a good week and whether you took time to nurture your soul, whether that be from running or doing your favourite work out. I would likely also remind you to be sure to take the time for you, and remind yourself why you are on a journey of health and fitness.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I will be leaving for a work trip after our coffee (traveling to Geneva for week long meetings.) I would also say that I am already a bit homesick and missing my LO and husband very much. Trips are just not the same without being able to see their smiling faces. On the positive side, I would also likely share that I am, however, looking forward to an evening of delicious fondue (the one place I will take a “break” from my dairy free lifestyle).

If we were having coffee, I would ask you if you had any tips on how to balance all that life has to offer: family life, work life and the desire to pursue the things you are most passionate about (it could be blogging, running, dancing or reading).  I would likely share with you about my struggle of trying balancing it all and how that sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed and unsure of all that I am trying to balance. I would also likely tell you what keeps pushing me and my WHY NOW for  pursing my passion for health and wellness and would also share with you my Driving Force.

    OMG – fondue in Switzerland – that’s my idea of heaven. YUM! Have a great trip.

    You’re the 2nd blogger I’ve read today that talked about work/life balance – such a challenge that we all face. I have no advice other than to not look so far into the future and take things one day at a time.

    You’re definitely not alone; I think work/life balance tends to be a constant struggle for everyone!

    Switzerland is absolutely beautiful! ❤ Hope you have a fun and safe trip!

    Geneva, now that is a work trip! I am going to West Palm Beach next week for meetings but I enjoy getting out of the house 🙂 ! Work/life struggle is tough everyone wants something! I am a scheduler and I try to stick to it- work, kids, friends, date nights, exercise that way I fell in control. Have a great week!

    I’m emerging on the other side, with teenagers now. The work-life balance will always be something we think about. There have been times in my life that have been fully focused on work, with very little of my home life seemingly present. But, I’ve taken a step back over the past few years to try and enjoy what I’m doing and what my kids are doing. It seemed important to be home with them when they were babies, but I’m feeling that my presence in their tween and teenage years has been nothing but a huge positive impact on their lives. The best advice is to do what you need to do – ask or pay for help, whether it be housecleaning, meal preparation, laundry, babysitting services, etc. Follow what your heart says and work with your partner to make whatever you choose, happen.

    By the way, I’m enjoying your blog:)

      Hi Susan, thanks for stopping by! 🙂 my husband and I totally agree with the idea that for the non essential things that tend to take us away from valuable family time get help! I never thought of how my role could continue to be valuable as they get older, i mean of course I understand that but we focus so much in the momens and how to always been there at toddler. Don’t always think big picture or longer term.I figured these later years changes the relationship, but you are right it can also be very positive on children. Your opinion means a lot, and your support is always appreciated! I love sharing and have found the blog to be a great way to express myself, including on a variety of topics. Please continue to input, and feel free to click follow! 🙂 I’ll be in touch soon on other topics.
