Not sure how to deal..

Friday, April 27, 2012

I am not sure I am ready for the 5K that I have scheduled tommorrow. I haven't been going to the gym and I haven't been running. I feel really guilty about it. I wish I would have done more.

I Haven't been eating as well as I should either. I should not have eaten 4 cookies yesterday and I should not have indulged in some pizza. I wish I could keep up with my fitness goals and health goals better.

I have also been feeling really stressed out at work. I have had to work late and get through a lot of work lately. I am not sure I have taken enough time for "me." I know that even my husband is feeling a bit neglected. I am not sure how to deal with everything sometimes.

    IF a 5k means five kilometres I think you can do it - maybe not running but you can manage it if you need to. If I had signed up I would probably need to do it to give myself a good feeling about myself but then, I am not you. There is a 5k for women only coming up in a week in my home town and they have formed a team at work running it. But after thinking about it for a while I decided to stay out of it this year, I have other goals that feels more inspiring.

    You are in a vulnerable situation emotionally - I would think the most important thing right now is to put sobriety first and do whatever you need to do to stay sober and from that start to take care of the aĆ³ther areas that are stressing you...

    We all feel like this sometimes.

    Would hubby go with you while you run outside? My bro-in-law hates to run, but he can speed walk next to my sister as she is just starting out running. They have a good time together.

    Go and do the race. This will be your starting line. Use this as your springboard into getting faster, or running further before stopping to walk. My starting point is taking 42 minutes to do a 5k. Four months later, my fastest time is 33 1/2 minutes!! My race is tomorrow. I won't be going to break any records, I'm going to enjoy the experience.

    Just because you haven't been training doesn't mean you don't deserve to go. No one will be mean to you if you come in last. No one will comment on how slow you are or how many times you had to stop and walk. Everyone is just happy to be there. GO! =)

    I don't think I have any great insight for you, but I have been where you are. Does everything seem a little off kilter? Hind sight is 20/20, but I wish I had spent less time at work. Not sure what you do, but if you took the time for yourself that you need, what would happen? I mean, would thinks work out ok in the end? It would just take a little longer for the work to be completed?

    I just learned the hard way, I should have put myself first.
