You got this chica.       Adjust, adapt, continue, conquer!

 

That sounds like a pretty good motto to me!

 

this is a gruesome and super accurate analogy. I hope that the feelings being dealt with is ultimately as satisfying as a nasty boil burst is!

 

I was really emotional last week. This week I'm okay. Next week will probably be really emotional again. It's a little rollercoaster-y right now. I went to my first al-anon meeting on Tuesday night. I don't know how much it's going to help but hearing about common experience is always a bit of a relief.

 

It looks like work lunches were a good win!

 

Yes it was! I was really happy about that. I've kept it going this week and done better with breakfasts.

I've managed 3/4 days this week on breakfasts and lunches. Doing well there. I'm also down about 2 pounds. 

 

We had a good rugby practice Monday night. We were inside so I held the pad and let the other girls bounce off me. 

 

I've missed one workout from coach. Will make it up on Sunday. 

 

6:30 is getting closer but I'm still just not quite there yet.

The big emotional thing I've been vague-booking about seems to be resolving in a satisfactory way. I didn't make up workouts and my eating got away from me last week. Shark week surprised me and I wasn't prepared. 

 

I'm back in a good place with everything and hopefully can start moving forward again now that The Thing is calming down. I joined a new fitness boxing place. I think I'm going to start focusing my training towards more rugby specific but this place will help with my urge to hit things. 

 

I think having 3 really difficult emotional months is going to lead to me being able to make some progress.

MORE BOXING YES PLEASE

 

Glad stuff is resolving and moving ahead.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

YAY for having a new boxing gym, and rugby and getting through your emotional stuff.  Go punch things! 

Plus, superb re packed lunches and more mornings.

 

Plus, sometimes its good to let the emotions come out of hiding - visit them, see what they are, acknowledge them, and then it all depends on how much of a grown up you are as to what happens next.....

 

Bonus points for not running screaming straight to junk food!

 

Big hug.

Yo, JD! How'd it end up with you?

 

It ended up roughly where it started. My weight is still dropping so I'm happy. Going to work on my goals today. I got some direction from my rugby coach on what she wants me to work on. I've done some research along those lines. As soon as I map out what I'm doing, I'll get the next challenge up. I think I'll even be around for all of March.
