Workin Girl

My work schedule changed today. Since I no longer have any school aged kids or sporting events to attend, it is time for me to step up to the plate and help out more with the finances. Wednesdays will be a long work day for me. This totally stinks when it comes to my training schedule that calls for some longer runs on Wednesdays. I have to figure out which day, Tuesday or Thursday, to change them to. Not sure I could get up early enough, run 9 miles, then go work 9 hours. 

I took another rest day after my 5 miler Monday. I have an appointment with the ortho tomorrow morning at 8:50. Not sure what they will say but I am hoping for a cortisone shot!! If it holds out and I can get a 20 mile training run in with no pain, then I think I can make it thru the marathon. If not......well, I do not want to think about "if not." The physical therapist taped my ankle again today.

So much stressful stuff going on in my world right now and I think I did some stressful eating after dinner tonight!!

Leftover cookies from the party last night. Pure sugar!!

Do you eat when you are stressed?? I tend to be the opposite!!




  1. Hi Teresa,

    I just started reading your blog and I love it! I feel like I relate to you a bit since I had my son at 20. I really give you credit for having such a large family and all the responsibility at a young age. You have a lot to be proud of : )

    I can't believe you are 45 btw, you look like you are in your early 30's.

    Well sorry to go off topic there...I definitely stress eat for sure. This is why I struggle so much to loose weight. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  2. Thanks Tina! So happy you enjoy my blog. I think so many of us eat under stress and what mother is not stressed?? I have found running to help me!! I am not a crazy runner. I am slow compared to many but steady. It does help to clear my head!
