Marathonmadien mentioned awhile back that my Boston Countdown was off. She was right. I'll figure it all out again when I am running again. Which will hopefully be WEDNESDAY.
I seriously have no idea what day it is! The non-stop workweek with no weekend has really killed me. Currently, I'm at the laundry mat because I had almost zero underwear. And besides the few select groceries my parents bought me at our meet-up yesterday (ie hummus and $$ lunchmeat) I have zero food so I'm currently eating laundry mat peanut M&Ms. I haven't mentioned this on the blog, but I've been eating no sugar and totally clean the last few weeks and have been feeling great. Since I haven't been running, I've been watching my eating closely and loved how I've been feeling because of it! However, I'm only human and on my 8th day of a 13 day work stretch, I have caved and eaten chocolate! So. Good. So. Worth it. Usually Peanut M&Ms and my guilty post-race splurge. With that said, the next time I will eat them will be post-Boston! :)
My blog has been totally boring lately, and for that I apologize. I also realize that I've done quite a bit of whining about work. I really do like my life and my jobs right now, but sometimes I'm so overwhelmed with the planning for my 4.5 classes that I teach (calculus, chemistry, physics, pre-algebra, and PE), driving 100 miles a day to and from work, fitting in swimming (and usually running), balacing my tenuous financial situation, and trying to maintain my sanity and *sometimes* an actual social life! I feel like I'm doing the best I can most of the time, but end up falling short in some areas. I'm sure once I get back into running it will all make more sense. Right now, I just feel myself being 'off' sometimes and feeling exhausted. Not cool.
Well, I realize I have very few readers (but I appreciate those of you out there!) But it still feels good to put my thoughts out there. Time for me to go move my clothes to the dryer! I wish I had more chocolate...
