I was so proud and had set myself up for success last night...But life happened.
😬Brandon was up from 1:30-3 AM with a growing pain and needing Mommy
😬 I fell asleep in his bed at 3ish and didn’t hear my 5 AM alarm 🚨 😬Woke up at 5:31, BUT had already missed the window to take my thyroid meds, eat my preworkout meal & be ready for work on time 😬exhausted, but decided to push play on my workout anyway 😬 Then I couldn’t figure out the TV remote 😂🤷♀️
😬I cut mysteriously cut my finger on my water bottle #dontask
😬 Day 1 with my new resistance loops left me feeling frustrated when they rolled up on me .
Guys, I wanted to quit.
I wanted to go back to sleep.
I told myself that since the conditions weren’t perfect, I should wait until “tomorrow” to start. But I did it anyway. I made it work. And now there’s no procrastinating about starting “tomorrow” because I already did it today! .
Off to start Day 2 of 80, and my 1st work day as a #teacher following timed nutrition.... let’s see how this goes!!
Don’t wait for perfect conditions to try something new. An imperfect attempt is better than none at all... #perfectlyimperfect#momlife#teacherlife#mommy#teacher#workingmommy#tiredmommy#teamnosleep#twins#growingpains#boymom#setupforsuccess#heartcore#organized#organizedmommy
Meet Me Monday!
5️⃣ things about Cara:
1️⃣. I love the Bachelor🌹(If Arie finds “the one,” I’m counting the days until they are at my newborn sleep class because he’s from Scottsdale, AZ🙌🏻)
2️⃣. I was valedictorian of my high school. (Impressive... until you learn there were only 39 kids in my class) 😂
3️⃣. It has been 14 months since I’ve had a Diet Coke. I used to drink about 6 a day 😳
4️⃣. When I was 4, I announced that I wanted to “help babies come out of the belly” or work at Taco Bell. (My mom bet on the bean burritos.🌯She knew the love was real!) As a Labor and Delivery Nurse, I cried at almost every delivery even after 14 years of experience. I loved it, and birth never became ordinary.
5️⃣. I started “Taking Cara Babies” because I knew the impact of sleep deprivation on families. I wanted to be a mama for my whole life, but when I had my daughter, I was so tired that I wasn’t the mom I wanted to be. I now have an online/live newborn sleep class, 3-4 Month booklet, and an online sleep training class to help other mamas and babies. I know first-hand that sleep really does help us become the moms we were meant to be. (Link in bio to all sleep resources)
Tell me something about you! I love getting to know YOU! (And yes, I read every single comment!)
When you try to put on bright lipstick to take attention away from the dark circles under your eyes. 😩💋
Ahhhh night shift, I will require permanent concealer when our relationship is through. #residentlife
