First, just to update you a tiny bit about yesterdays dilemma.
Mike did resign at work. He will be finished the 2nd of July. Money wise he is okay through July so can take care of rent, insurance and gas. So he will have time to find his next job. It was a stressful afternoon for him telling his grandfather his plans (who instead of taking it wisely was a smart a** about it but that was his choice). Jim took time to absorb and after much talking last night will sit back and just watch and advise when asked but will not be judging. He was happy to know that when the time comes, if the time comes, that him and Mike can be business partners.
As for my daycare, I still don’t know. I really don’t want to go anywhere’s but Jim and I did talk about different ideas and will keep talking and praying about it and see what life brings.
On the challenge front it’s going great. When your stressed what choices do you have? You can eat and not do anything or take that stress and work it off and that is what I chose to do. My calories are lower then they have been for a bit but that’s part of Phase 6 but that’s fine because I took a peek at the scale and it’s liking me right now….except this is week three and that means my TOM is coming so we’ll see by Monday. The exercise, well it hasn’t been the kind on my challenge but it has been hard work. Monday Mike and I went geo-caching and hiking and day 1 of my 100 days to 5K with Brad. Tuesday and Wednesday was tons of shoveling and tilling and weeding the garden. Last night was just about the last of the shoveling and I did go for a walk but not a power walk, a relaxing clear my mind walk. Tonight I need to do my Brad 100 days to 5K walk. It has been going pretty good. Easy really because the walking and fast walking are only a few minutes at a time and I was already doing my running but I thought about skipping a part and going to week three to be with everyone else but I truly want to know how to run and breath and more so am starting at the start and in 100 days will be able to run the full 5K without running out of breath and without dying.
So there it is. The Life of Riley. Not easy but life isn’t suppose to be. It’s suppose to be full of challenges so that we learn to lean on others, to lean on the Lord instead of thinking we can do it all alone. We can’t, we don’t have to, we don’t need too. I want to thank you all for your advice yesterday. Each one of you had a point and was talked about and thought about and will be thought about for some time to come. THANK YOU!!!
Take care and have a blessed and awesome afternoon.
