I Screwed Up. Royally.

This is probably going to be a hot mess of a post because I'm a hot mess myself. I screwed up in a big way.  I'm talking a total effing disaster that came in the mail last night via the IRS and a return from a few years ago that I missed something on. This was after dance class and a 30 minute 20 mph drive home where Madison freaked out the entire way because a lady bug was in the car. Aiden started to cry and Madison was acting like a nut, then I checked the mail, and bam. Bad freaking news. I try to call Oliver, but his phone was kaput. While trying not to flip a lid, I feed the kids and furiously clean whatever I can, cleaning is my go to destresser I just feel better while doing it. I start to cry because I know Oliver's going to be furious with me.


He comes in and asks why I'm crying, I tell him, and he completely shocks me by giving me a big hug, telling me not to worry and that we will fix it. He asks me if I've had dinner and I tell him through my tears that I only have macros for proteins and fats - eggs, sausage, and cheese it is. I swear I have the best husband ever, to not place one iota of blame on me and instead try to make me feel better - that's love. Now I just need to pray I can fix it and not be paying for this mistake for a very long time. I'm telling y'all - this has not been my best year :(


My weight has been stuck for the last few weeks, I hit prepreggo weight and it just sat there day after day. My macros were adjusted by Paige, increasing my carbs and lowering my fats and proteins a bit. Whenever my numbers change I tend to feel off for a few days as I try to figure out what to eat to fit my new numbers. Looking back through my food diary I haven't been hitting my numbers as consistently as I would like, off by 10 here and there, I tried to figure out where I was struggling. My number one problem right now is after work, with the sun staying up longer we are busier at night - soccer, dance, and our nightly runs. I haven't been eating dinner until 8 or 8:30 and then just eating what was easy. So my goal this week is to get my 7pm-9pm under control - even after my meltdown last night I managed to hit my numbers, but I had to bust out a protein shake to do it. Wasn't crazy impressed with this brand, I think I should've mixed it up with some ice and almond milk for a smoothie. 


 Drinking a protein shake before bed is not the best idea, I woke up to pee around 3:45 then I could feel my stomach rumbling from hunger, and then I remembered my IRS nightmare and couldn't go back to sleep. I just laid there until 4:15, got up and ate something before heading out on a run. My legs were like lead after leg day yesterday - I went extra heavy on the lunges so I felt my booty with every move I made today. The girls I ran with were fast - we kept an 8:29 pace for 5 miles {and hills, we always run those damn hills} and then I busted out some heavy upper body for 4/5 reps 3 sets. The entire time I was running I kept chanting to myself  'tired legs make you stronger' sometimes you just need to pep talk yourself.


Let's end on a happy note and imagine what the bald one will look like when he's not bald anymore. 


This sweet girl hugs him 2,700 times a day, it's no wonder he hates everybody we never give him enough space to even look around :)

  12. You'll be able to fix tax problems. There might be penalties and interest, but you can fix it.

  13. Wow, what a roller coaster girlfriend! Thank goodness Oliver was a very loving husband, exactly when you needed him most! And, don't worry about your tax issue. As someone else said, it can at least be fixed. At least you know about it, make a plan, and you will work through it like everything else. One day at a time, lovely lady!

  14. ImI so sorry!! That is so frustrating!! Your hubby rocks though, what a sweetheart for holding you and telling you it will be all right. We owed a buttload of taxes this year, because of my music, and it's ask due in 3 weeks plus "estimated taxes" for the next quarter. April is gunna suck a little bit, but we'll make it through and just like Oliver says, "everything is going to be ok." Hugs.

  15. Sorry to hear about your IRS news...I got one of those last year after having missed something in 2010 and it is definitely not a letter you want to receive. Good for you for rocking your workout in light of the stress. When I run and am tired, I often times count my steps in increments of 100...sounds dumb but it helps me get through it!

  16. You've got this! I know how frustrating it all seems right now, but in a few days (or at least weeks) it won't seem as big of a deal! Concentrate on the RIGHT NOW. Nothing is happening to you!

  17. If it makes you feel better the IRS showed up at my front door once. My husband had just started his own business and we were still figuring out all the tax stuff. My husband wasn't answering his phone and I was a mess and brought out every document we had in the house and the agent looked at me and said have your husband call me and the next day she took care of it.

  22. Oh, I hate those surprises. *hugs* and just take deep breaths! We finally hired an accountant this year after screwing up last year, so at least if we get one of those letters I can send it to him!

  23. I am sorry about the rough night! I am hoping everything goes well with the IRS. I am glad I am not the only one that pep talks myself to get through a rough workout.

  24. Been there, done that. Financial mistakes are not fun, and can be a major marriage stressor. It's great that you and your hubby realize that love and understanding matter the most! I hope you day(s) get better soon! Your energy and posts always put a smile on my face, hopefully all of the comments on this post help you feel a little better. Hang in there!
