Today promises to be a crazy day. I have a million things to do at work, plus training in the afternoon, and I absolutely need to squeeze a run in at some point. My plan for the moment is to hit the treadmill after the kids are in bed. *fingers crossed*
My first ever run (5K) is on Sunday, & I'm excited! It doesn't look like Michael will be able to join me, as my mom won't be able to watch the kids. So I'll be running solo. I'm a little sad about it, because I think I'll need the encouragement. Oh well - I'm sure I'll manage. :-)
I really wanted something "spring-ish" today, so I opted for sandals, despite the fact that it's chilly today. We'll see if I regret it when I'm in my cold office.

I had a rough night last night. I found out that an old friend from high school was murdered, which was so depressing. I hadn't spoken to him in years, but he was a close friend of my high school boyfriend, so we spent quite a bit of time together. He was sweet and thoughtful, always kind to others. Even though we hadn't spoken in years, he will be missed. RIP Bruce.
I was very stressed after I heard the news & spoke to some old friends, and ate a bunch of crap as a result. I feel like I've made tremendous progress on my emotional eating, so I was sad to see that I still sometimes fall back into that pattern. It's something I used to really struggle with, but over the past few months, I was taming it pretty well. All I can do today is pick myself up & move on, continuing to think of new ways to deal with my emotions & stress that don't involve eating.
In positive news, my son's preschool teacher complimented me on my weight loss, which made me feel really great and started my morning off on a high note.
