You take the good, you take the bad, you take ’em both and there you have…

My pc has crashed, so I’m finally getting around to posting from my iPod. I hate this little tiny keyboard, lol. I haven’t disappeared or quit, still chugging along. Increased my calories in a bit, and my scale is back to creeping (very slowly) downward again. I honestly haven’t been as faithful to fitday food journaling, but am honestly keeping a running tab daily of my intake (sometimes on scraps of paper, sometimes mental, lol). My kitchen’s stocked with the good stuff, so staying on target hasn’t been too hard. Still working my c25k plan. I was supposed to do w4d1 today, but was feeling pretty anxious about 2 5-min runs, so today I did half of week 1, with 1-min sprints instead of jogs, then did 3/4 of w4d1. That’s 2 3-min and 1 5-min JOG. I’m not fast, I’m huffing and puffing, I thought I would die, but I did it. I was surprised at how quickly 1-min goes now, when so recently I thought it would kill me. I think I’m getting there :). On the negative side, my night shift stint has been extended by 2 weeks, and my oldest daughter has decided she’d be happier living not with me. Lots went into that decision, I don’t think it’s the best one, but I also know there are many lessons best learned the hard way, so I have to let her learn them her own way. That’s all stressful enough, but it also means swapping my schedule around to arrange childcare for lil monkey. And helping her understand all the changes in her life. Sigh. One day at a time. But it’ll help us both learn flexibility and adaptability, right? I’m thankful for the supportive people in my life who are helping with this. I’m thankful for running, which has become the stress reliever I’d wished it would. I’m thankful for the warm spring weather that allows me to work in my garden (another huge stress reliever), and for all the growing things I see. It’s time for me to take a nap now for work tonight, love to all. Keep us in your prayers, please
