|Knocked out cold!|
So here's the deal. I'm having my busiest time at work in over a year. Things are just crazy. I'm working early, late, and through lunch....and I even put in 4 hours on Easter Sunday, and I'm barely keeping my head above water. When I get stressed like this, I eat. And I eat total crap!! So it wasn't suprising when I weighed in Sunday and gained .8 pounds - well actually it was a little suprising because I expected it to be more. Worst part is things are still crazy, and it's Tuesday night and things haven't improved. If I keep on this path I will gain this week too :( I don't know why I can't get my eating under control when I'm stressed, but I just can't seem to. I eat sugar by the gallon!
I'm still "trying" to keep my 70.3 training going, but I did miss 3 workouts last week - 1 bike and 2 swims. I'm hopeful this week will be better, but we shall see. I missed my swim workout tonight, but I'm hopeful I can make it up tomorrow night. I'm starting to have a few doubts about whether I'm going to be able to make the Half Ironman work. I want to, and I haven't given up yet, but I know my job is going to continue to be pretty crazy at least through the end of May and I just don't know if I can keep up the amount of training I need to get in and work 60+ hours a week. And at the end of the day the job is the most important - it pays the bills.
Feeling a little down right now. But, on a positive note I have a fun filled weekend planned. Birthday Friday, Royals Home Opener Friday, and Half marathon Sat. Plus other Birthday celebrations with friends.....and some more work...but let's not think about that right now.
