I’ve been out of this week. I’ve been out of touch and haven’t really been living the plan. It’s kind of made me a little chaotic and doing some weird things. No talk about meal prepping this week because I didn’t cook this week. Plus, I had been stock piling meals for these weeks when I knew I was going to be super busy and wouldn’t have enough time to prep. So we’ve been eating a lot of the same.
Willie made this deliciousness for dinner this week. I’ve been enjoying it! I’m glad that he’s back to cooking and getting back to that.
Emotionally I’ve been beat up this week. I got really upset because Willie got wounded in the process. Willie and I are both fixers and our hearts are so big to the right people. It’s hard sometimes to venture through some hard times knowing there is nothing you can do to actually make something better. That being said, I don’t really know what the future holds and that’s really scary for me. The one thing I’ve really been battling the past few months is fighting back destructive behavior. I don’t know if it’s like that for you, but I will completely destroy my self-worth. Negative talk is a horrible thing and I’m really trying to work past that. That’s a reason why I don’t live in limbo.
I’ve been trying to rest from the marathon because we are running the Little Rock Marathon this weekend. And next weekend, I am pacing a 6HR marathon for our hometown race. It was an honor to be asked to fill this particular spot so there was no way I would turn it down. It’s something new for me and I look forward to taking on the challenge. That doesn’t mean I’m not a little nervous about it though but I’ve run with enough pacers to know what to do. I just hope I’m able to help someone accomplish a goal.
I really just want to get back into a regular workout routine, but if I put my body through the stress I have to allow it time to heal. I would rather rest a little longer now than be forced to be out later on. I know what I do to my body is not standard, but I do take care of my body.
Don’t forget to enter to win the Runningluv! Today is the last day to enter to win. It’s a great thing and here’s your chance to try to get one for free.
I am looking forward to seeing some friends this weekend and running a marathon with Willie. I can’t believe he’s actually going to let me RUN with him. If you’re around the Little Rock expo say hello! I met so many of you there last year and I hope to see a lot more smiling faces.
What’s your plan for the weekend?
