working through the stress

So, after blabbing about my stress and how I need to find another way to deal with it..... Sunday I had an argument of sorts with husband about daughter and immediately picked up the phone to call cousin to tell her I would be skipping our scheduled run with the running room 10k clinic. I had the phone in my reach, and then thought to myself that if I was ever going to make a change it had to be now. So I went for the 8k run. Small steps, right? At one point I was talking to cousin about the tiff and got myself so worked up I had to stop running because I got so short of breath!

Oh, and I did run Saturday with Indiana. It was slow and a smidgen frustrating because Indiana kept stopping. And just sitting. What a little monkey! Anyhow, we finished the run and I'm sure we BOTH felt so good when it was done.

Last night we went up the the club for Superbowl fun and frolic. All food written down and counted.

This morning I joined daughter for her session with the personal trainer. Oy! The up side was that she commented on my form and said that is was perfect! The down side was that it friggen hurt!!! I have some work to do with weights!

Not much else on the agenda for today. Taking the pup for a nice long walk this afternoon. Not going to run because I've run two days in a row and my knees are quite sore.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. Good for you for getting back to your workouts and engaging your daughter in them.

    Superbowl at my house yesterday was preceded by 3hrs of heavy duty house cleaning. Does that count as a workout?

  2. Good for you for not letting your stress situation derail your exercise plans. I know that deep down, you knew that it would help. I'm super stressed right now with work, so I told my boss to expect me to be gone at lunch everyday. I NEED EXERCISE! It's the one thing I know will make me feel better.

  3. Great job on going on the run when you were so upset.

  4. Look at you! Rocking the 10K!

    I am afraid of the teen years. Oldest is turning 7 this year. I have a few more years to prepare :)

  5. Good job on heading out for that run.

    And glad to hear that your contract was extended. That's awesome!
