It’s been a week since my last post- a very stressful, overwhelming week.
Last Thursday I was put into an unexpected situation where my younger siblings (8 and 17) needed to come and stay with me. So I’ve spent the last week stressing, crying, packing, moving, organizing, enrolling, completely (and luckily) changing my work schedule around, and driving. LOTS of driving.
Not only have I not made it to the gym even once- but I had to cancel my training session with Dorn yesterday. I’ve been so stressed out that I’ve been lucky to get one meal in a day and that’s because the boyfriend made sure of it. Between trying to comfort the siblings, completely pack and move an entire room into storage, not being able to get off of work and having to work later into the evening than I wanted, I’ve been too exhausted to even think about sitting down for a meal.
Things are finally a little better today. It’s day 3 of second grade for the brother and day 1 of senior year for the sister. I’m not quite as worried about my sister starting a new school since she’s moved around a lot the last three years but my brother started pre-school in his hometown and has grown to love his old school and all of his friends. So far he seems to be doing okay at his new school- they have an after care program like his old one where they help with homework, have snacks, and can play. And fortunately for me, they’re open as late as 6:30pm!
I figure it gives him a chance to make new friends and it gives my darling a break. We don’t have children of our own, so this is new to us. He is handling it very well but I’m noticing that he doesn’t quite have the patience that I do when it comes to my 8-year-old brother being bored literally every 10-15 minutes. We live in the country so there isn’t much to do, especially with the cold weather. =(
I’ve rescheduled my session with Dorn and am hoping to get in tomorrow morning! I’m ready to relieve some stress! I’m NOT ready for the 3 days of terribly sore quads though. The two days after my last session were very painful. It hurt to bend over, walk, get in and out of my car, and damn it pure torture trying to sit on the toilet!
Squats KILL me!
