Sunday=rest day. My legs were very thankful for 24 hours of minimal movement.
I slept in until 8:45 in the morning. It was weird.
For dinner we went over to my sister’s house for my nephew’s birthday dinner.
Chicken, funeral potatoes (my mom’s recipe is here), fruit, green beans and salad.
Of course he was thrilled to get a picture of Brooke for his bday:)
His request for dessert was the huge apple pie from Costco. Costco sure makes a lot of people in this world happy.
I also brought my pb no bakes (they sure don’t look pretty but they are addicting and super easy to make. My BIL agreed with me that these cookies are even better than the chocolate ones).
Guess who’s back today?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A hard part of my divorce is trying to figure out my ‘identity’ (does that makes sense?). For so long being a ‘wife’ was a big part of who I was (along with many other things but that was a huge part) and I have now come to terms with that no longer being a part of my life. I feel very independent now (yes, I know I live in my parents’ basement…) but it is weird when the ‘wife’ part of my identity is gone and at the same time I don’t have my ‘mom’ identity of taking care of Brooke for the weekend. It is a weird feeling. Anyone want to hire me to watch your kids just for one weekend a month;)
Getting used to so much change is just going to take time and just like with running, it will get easier. Those first few times you get out to run (whether you are just starting out or coming back from a long break or an injury) feel almost impossible but after a few weeks/months of training we are running 3 miles like it ain’t no thang. Our muscles and lungs adapt and figure the whole running thing out. So just you watch…in a few months from now I will be able to cope with my time away from Brooke a lot better. Even though I will cope with the time away better our reunions will ALWAYS be the best thing in the world. I don’t know why I feel the need to tell you every thought I have but I just hope it helps anyone else out there that is struggling with a major change to know you aren’t alone and we will figure this out.
What day have you been taking your rest days recently?
Anyone going through some big changes now? What?
What kind of cake/dessert did you choose to have for your last birthday?
Longest break you have taken from running?
-I think it was about 12 weeks because of my femoral stress fractures.
