I think the dream I had the other night was pretty prophetic. I woke up this morning and put on my most comfortable jeans, only, they are not comfortable anymore. If I do not stop gaining inches and pounds, I may end up being ginormous. I promptly got up and got moving. I went to the store and stocked up on some healthy choices. The insanity ends today. It is time to set some boundaries and expectations for myself on the weight front. Being overweight is inexcusable when I have so much knowledge about what I need to do to change my fate. I have control over my choices. The excuses end now.
As far as running goes: If I truly want to complete a June marathon, making excuses such as being too tired, too busy, too saturated with life or any of the umteen excuses I have been using for skipping runs here and there stops now.
Last night at track practice, the run was incredibly challenging, but awesome, as always. I am, without a doubt, getting faster and more confident. It was tough, but I did it. Our work-out was two 20 minute tempo run with a five minute cooldown in between. There were moments when I thought I could not take another minute of it. I did it though and feel great!
Allie and I are going to get back to our meetups with the mom groups. We both need to make some new friends. It has been a month since we participated with any of them.
Our travel is booked for June. It is completely unnerving to let go of the money, but we are officially going. I cannot wait for our next European adventure.
I just got an e-mail for another work-from-home opportunity in the web design arena. It is a work-from-home company I have worked with before and the pay is pretty good. I do not want to jinx it, but I have an interview coming up. Hopefully, with Eric’s contracting position at a cross-roads, perhaps I can supplement some (although I cannot possibly expect to make as much as Eric was making). The doors are opening for me and I know that powers greater than myself are surely at work here.
I may not be “religious,” yet I believe there is a higher power guiding us.
No news is good news. So far, we have yet to hear anything further from the real estate agent’s attorney. I contacted several agencies with complaints against the real estate agent. I hope it keeps him at bay.
