Today was the last day I'm allowing myself to wallow. It's been a rough week. The news today of the bombing in Boston has really hit home with me.

But on the plus side, today I drank lots of water, and ate well. Tomorrow I will get out of the house. I plan on trying to run tomorrow. I don't think I'll do all that well, but I intend to get out there and do what I can.

I'm still feeling pretty down. So it's going to be a bit of an uphill battle. I'm worth the fight though.

I have not taken my visi for the last two days. I didn't sleep Saturday night, so I didn't really want to take it on Sunday. I needed rest, and not to be full of energy. This morning when I decided to let me have a day at home, I also decided to just let my body do it's own thing. No supplements. No making myself feel bad about not wanting to go out.

But that's all going to change tomorrow morning. I'm going to do the best I can to get myself back on track.

I guess I've got to keep in mind where I am right now with regards to what I expect out of myself over the next few days.

We are leaving for Calgary on Thursday. We were stressed about it financially, but that's all been worked out. I'm getting not only my final pay cheque on Friday, I'm also getting back the monies I had deducted for investment into the company that I've been contributing since January, and it's a significant amount of money I have coming back.

So that helps. I'll also get to see my son Ryan on Saturday. I'm looking forward to that.

Well, time to get some rest tonight. Gear up for a busy day tomorrow. I'll be making a big batch of home made tomato sauce. I bought 25lbs of tomatoes yesterday. We should be able to can about 12-15Litres of sauce. It'll take almost all day, but it's so worth it. I also want to get out and run. The sauce simmers for 4 hours, so I'll have a nice sized window to get out of the house and run once I get the sauce simmering.

I'm thinking I'll still need to kick my butt out the door for a run, but I'm sure it'll be worth it. I just hope it isn't snowing too much tomorrow. yes, it's still snowing here.
