to your DH... It's so much stress to endure.
Re: eds. I think that many of us here would be vulnerable to them for many reasons. I struggle a great deal, though mostly in college. There is nothing much that is intuitive about my eating. There is so much involved - appetites, ethics, biography, culture, society, and more...
for you jaygee as I know you're caught in this horror right now. And I do think it is horrifying; feeling out of control and full of all the negative emotions afterward, as well as the physical consequences of it.
Lofty, I have been working hard to introduce more fat. I have heard many good things about coconut. I used to be nut phobic but now chow down on them happily. I feel much better for it. (and thanks for asking about me
CFG, the run sounds stunning. I will be channeling your energy tomorrow!
DrJen, Our dhs sound in a similar job rut. It makes me very sad for my DH but also very stressed as I don't think we could handle it financially if my DH quit. That said we're talking about him going down to part time hours so he can care a bit more for DS and also so he can concentrate on his grad studies. The race with Justin sounds lovely and, like Gaye, I hope that I get to do the same with my DS.
i was thinking of you this morning. Well done. I think that getting through a very hard slog says much about your character. I'm afraid that I might sneak off the course if I feel so bad
Nic, you're making me wish I was in FL! How's the car fixing?
Argh, Gaye, I wonder if you really do need a proper rest... you really are super woman in your consistency.
Kerc, is that the Kabat-Zinn book? If so, I really liked it.. well, the parts I read before ds arrived. I must pick it up again.
Mommajb, you are so speedy
I haven't run since Monday because my hip flexors were feeling good and I didn't want to spoil things. Now I am worried that I will be too sluggish tomorrow. Oh, I am really nervous. I haven't run a race in a decade, and then I was at least 90 seconds per mile faster than I am now
I'll be lucky to finish tomorrow given how badly the past 3 weeks have been for illness, lack of sleep and no running... It shoudl be a fun morning, though. DH has been working on 'stuff' for the day, so I think that there may be a banner or something for him and DS to hold
DH and I also went out for a date yesterday. We went to a late afternoon showing of a pretty bad film but it was our first date since DS arrived so it was very nice indeed.
Poppy, good luck tomorrow!
Oh, lordy, I am sooooooooo anxious!!!!!!! It strikes me as funny as I will be firmly in the middle of the pack!
