I started a new job this week so I feel like I have been on the go nonstop since Tuesday. Wednesday and Thursday were long training days and didn't make my steps and UGHHH that irks me but I was exhausted from getting up at 5 am and commuting 2 hrs a day. I will find a new norm once the job actually starts and learn to roll with the punches. Monday and Friday I got 20,000 steps to make up for it. Last night after my dance class we threw a baby shower for our teacher. I needed that class to workout not for the cupcakes and cookies so I passed. This week has been the week of free sweets actually. Cookies and cupcakes at the shower and at the job training, lots and lots of donuts, ice cream and popsicals. I got off with 1 ice cream, that is my downfall.
I was at work yesterday I must have been missing my filter. I was wearing a marathon shirt and this woman asked if I was running the half marathon that is here in town and I said "No it looks boring" Then I thought, uh oh "Are you running it?" "Yes". Uh oh that wasnt very nice. We have never had a race here in town and this one looks awful. You are out in the country for 3 miles of it. Then it goes down the bike trail and loops around campus then u go back exactly how u came.. It sounds and looks like a bad training route. I guess ppl are excited cuz its local. There was one is Delavan (20 miles away) we used to go to and the whole half was in a corn field. Two giant loops on country roads. People would come from chicago and think it was awesome. I like running in town and I think my half marathon days are over for awhile. I will go and cheer Scott on while he runs this local race.
Still in a world of stress with my dads finances. My mom and brother got me in the middle of their fight yesterday. My brother stresses my mom out worse, then my mom says something to scare him to leave her alone. Then my brother calls me with a guilt trip asking why I am not helping. I think I need to stop picking up the phone when he calls. I miss not talking to him. That was nice. My mom knows I am busy with a new job and coming when I can. I live 50 minutes away, he lives 10 minutes away. My brother and I will never get along and I don't care to gain any points with him. He's pretty much a stranger to me at this point. I wont call him if I was having issues with our mom. He shouldn't start fights with her if he can't fix them. We are supposed to be on her side, not questioning and making her feel like she's doing everything wrong.
