We're only 2 weeks into school. Why does it already seem like there was no summer vacation?? I'm already pulling out my hair!! I've had 389 arguments with C already about doing homework. She's told me at least 5 different lies about things that have happened at school or that her teacher has said. In these 2 weeks, we've had 4 football practices, 1 football game and 5 hockey practices. Tomorrow we go down to Chicago for 2 days for 4 hockey games. I'm tired just thinking about it all. Luckily I'll get to see a few college friends while I'm down there. That should break things up a bit.
In the midst of everything, I'm training for the Fall 50, which is a 50 mile running relay in Door County in October. There are 5 of us on the team, so I need to be able to run about a total of 10 miles, broken up into 2 legs. Tonight I'm doing a 6 mile training run. I still am a run/walker, so I run about half of the time. Maybe someday I'll be able to just run......
I recently lost 30 pounds. I need to lose another 20, but I'm kind of at a self imposed standstill. I determined that I needed more food to run/walk. So, while I'm not losing right now, I'm also not gaining, so that's a win in my book.
I've started several blogs in the past, but just never kept up with them. I'm hoping that this can be a place where I can talk about my struggles and successes with parenting, running, losing weight, eating, and anything else in between!
