211 ... Because I can't bring myself to log it in MFP or Runkeeper I figured I would lead with it here. Accountability, right?! HA! Either way, it is out there and now the only thing that matters is what I do from this moment forward. That is all on that subject for today.
17 days! in 17 days I will be a half marathoner. Holy shit people. I have many feelings about this. Some good - encouraging, positive, motivational; and some bad - I am so not prepared, what if my body gives out, anything over 72 degrees and I can't function. I have 17 days to work through these feelings in hopes that they don't all come to a head at the start line on May 19th.*
Fun weekend planned ahead that I am hoping will relieve some of my stress and J's. With his dad in and out of the hospital for CHF (and his dad's not so positive attitude - your only 64 dad, come on - you DO NOT get to give up!) and the busy busy weekend's we have been putting in - we really need some no worries, stress free, fun with friends and each other. And come Sunday - we are Kalahari bound! One of our happy places. Bathing suits, water rides and giant Kalahari Flames!
I also finally made a hair appointment Saturday AM. The last time I had a cut/style was probably over a year ago. Feels good to be able to go and get alittle pampered every once in a while.
I am alive and just trying to get through it all at this point... summer is coming and I want to make the best of it.
What is the first thing you do when you start to feel overwhelmed/frustrated/stressed out/pressured/etc?
--I normally eat my feelings, but now that I have recognized that, I try to re-direct - eat healthier and get out and get some fresh air/get out and move.
*which in all reality, they will - I am very aware of this and am comfortable enough with my sensitivity to cry in public. Just try not to stare...
