Well, boy child is being suspended for the rest of the week. He will be allowed to return to school on Monday. Any more offences before the end of the year, he will be expelled. We need to get through 15 weeks. This is going to be - tough!!! He made the first three years at this school without a problem. Now, everyday is a struggle.
I wish I knew how to get through to him. I just canít. I know that is just part of autism. I know and understand that Iím lucky he functions as well as he does. I know the fact that he shows any social bonding should make me want to celebrate. I just so need to get through to him how important this is.
On the Kitty front, I'm up a ton of weight. I'm keeping to my promise to stay away from the scale until after my race on 3/9 but my jeans are a bit snug. Iím eating until I feel sick, which I havenít done in over a year. I also try to get up and exercise Ė but I just start working around the house. I need to get it together.
I had my first real run in a while on Saturday and I did just under 2 miles in 22 minutes. So thatís an 11 minute mile, I donít seem to have lost pace. What I have lost is endurance. Just 2 miles and I feel like Iím going to drop. Iím getting tired really fast. I donít think the re-gained cushion Iím carrying is helping my endurance. Nor is my lack of regular cardio for the last month +. Not certain the candy and chips are really helping all that much either.
I know what to do and how to do it. I just need to get past the stress. I have so much stress right now. Walking/running became my stress relief. I canít do that right now. So Iíve returned to my prior ďbadĒ way of dealing with stress Ė food. I canít allow that so I have to find OTHER stress relievers. Iíll get there. I know it.
Well, back to work tomorrow and hopefully back to my healthier life.
