There are so many things I want to do and I'm having such a hard time fitting it all in. For instance, I'd love to be able to visit SparkPeople daily and:
1) make at least one status update
2) post even a short blog entry about positive things
3) check in with friends on my friend feed and give feedback on statuses or blogs
4) check and participate in some of the groups I'm in
But this is so much! At least, it is for me; it takes up more time than I'd expect. I wonder if it'd be a realistic goal to do at least one of these things per day. I suppose 1 and 2 could be an either-or. Anyway, I will have to think about this and maybe give it a try. I'm already a bit discouraged as today I've not done very much and I need to do a LOT...I'm here because everything else seems too overwhelming.
+ Even though I didn't have the best night of sleep last night, I am so, so glad I went out with the gang this morning on our last group run/hike adventure of the year...this was a special event one of my friends had been wanting to do for a long time. Because I've been trying to make this month a recovery month from running, I was a little worried I wouldn't be trained up enough, but I think it turned out ok. We summited five peaks, so with all the uphill climbing, there was a lot more hiking and less running than usual. I had so much fun. We even beat the rain predicted for today!
+ The run/hike significantly reduced my anxiety (as usual), and so I really haven't had any unhealthy eating urges so far today. I ate a lot after the run/hike to refuel, but it was to refuel and enjoy a good meal, not for any emotional reason. Times like these make me know that I can be normal some day, because I see little previews of it during times like these... I just need to figure out how to deal with all the excess anxiety.
+ I'm here!
