At some point this week, I must have completely lost my mind. How else would you explain my agreeing to do an 11 km run between two long walks?
This morning I met up with the walking half of my Half Marathon clinic and did a brisk 7 km walk. THEN I went back to the Running Room and met up with some of my buds to train for the "Last Chance Half Marathon" for a nice 11 km run. And THEN, I met up with some SparkPeople and walked another 11 kms. It was a fabulous day. I burned 1471 calories. Hopefully, it'll pay off in tomorrow's weigh-in.
It was definitely a good day, though. I love getting to spend time with my friends. I have to work harder at making it happen.
Tonight, I used every ounce of willpower I own not to call my ex's wife and give her a piece of my mind. We're ALL supposed to go camping this weekend with the JFWs and they don't want me to go. It'll be "awkward". Whatever. Regardless, the boys and my step-daughter have been looking forward to it. So have I. Tonight, the boys come home and tell me that my SD can go but can't participate in any of the activities.... she's not insured. So I call the head warden. Apparently, it's the ex's DW that pointed that out to the head warden. How insanely manipulative do you have to be and how much do you have to hate someone to hurt my children to get to me? ANYWAY, between the head warden and I, we found a way for my step-daughter to go AND participate. The ex's DW if going to have a conniption. Serves her right. The witch.
Oh and the point of this story: my emotional trigger is anger. When all of this happened, I didn't reach for the junk. I had a healthy snack. And posted to my blog. YAY ME!
