Life Sucks.

Tuesday, November 05, 2013

I got dumped the day before yesterday. It was agonizing and I'm still in pain. I dealt with said dumping by engaging in unhealthy behavior which is unacceptable. And now, two days after, I am still feeling the effects.

I guess a good thing is a ate a bowl of cereal this morning and I am drinking coffee. I signed up for the Shamrock Half Marathon in Virginia Beach in March. I stepped on the scale too. I going to finish here (update my weight ticker), take a shower and take care of myself before work this afternoon.

How do you know it's time to step on the scale? should step on that thing at least every few days. I'd been avoiding it because I've let myself go this summer because I was feeling sorry for myself and dealing with my drama. And my size 8 and 10 jeans no longer fit. I can barely squeeze into the 10's. And no respectable girl would run around with the muffin top they create.

The scale said 188.8. That's up 20lbs from February-ish. It looks like more on my body. I haven't eaten for a couple of days, so it's fair to think that I am probably a little heavier carrying my food weight with me.

So, I'm going to update my ticker. And run. Because you can't cry when you run.

    Actually if you're a big time sweater (like me) it's easy to cry when you run. Especially if you're wearing sunglasses. Sorry I'm just now seeing this post but hope things are worlds better in the time that has passed. Hope you're still rockin' life and love.

    Crying is ok in fact in this case it's good, let it out.

    You should include the Chicago song "Feeling stronger every day" on your mp3 player for your training runs.

    The way I look at being "dumped" is that - anyone who did not appreciate your unique & wonderful value, isn't someone you should want to spend the minutes of your life with. So you are actually better off not wasting life minutes with such a person.

    We really do have just so many minutes of lifetime to spend & it is a huge shame to waste any of them on people who do not value us.

    God bless you with knowing His plan for each day of your life!

    So sorry for what you are going through... Time to take care of you. You've got a great plan and once you get yourself moving in the right direction each day will be a little better. The critical piece is to start, which you are doing - way to go!

    Drop down and do "20" when you feel like crying. It'll hurt so much that you'll not want to cry for a while (LOL). Hang tough!!

    I'm sorry. I've been dumped several times, and it's very painful.
    Cry all you want; you'll feel better. Drugs and drinking will only dull the pain temporarily, it'll still be there when you sober up (speaking from experience.)

    Time will heal this wound. You are alive. You will survive.
