I'll start up running for this week tonight. I kind of wish I wouldn't have waited so long to start this week, but I was going to do it last night and then I realized I'd run again on Thurs which is forcasted to be 103 degrees here. I know there are alot of people who run in that type of weather, but I don't want to if I don't have to! So, I'll start tonight so I skip tomorrow.
I've really been battling emotional eating the last few days. I've been pretty stressed out and that leads me to either not eat or eat whenever I'm feeling frustrated. Crazy as this sounds, what has helped me is actually picturing Jesus sitting there in my kitchen asking me if I really need to eat that. Most of the time it's instantly obvious that I'm just eating to try and relieve stress (which never really happens).
I mentioned in my post last week that I was somewhat concerned with our mission trip to Toronto. Now I'm pretty concerned. I called the hotel and they don't have any type of exercise room. I know nothing about the neighborhood, so I'm not sure if I can run there. So, if anything I'll be running around the parking lot. 2 of the girls in our youth group are doing summer gym for school, and they have to get 3 hours of exercise in during the week, so I figured that'll be good motivation for me too! Someone suggested we run the stairs at the hotel! That makes me cringe just thinking about it! The food is the part I'm worried about. We'll be eating breakfast at the hotel in the AM, so I can do oatmeal or something then. Lunch will be served by host families, so I'll be at the mercy of the families we're working with. Then dinner will be eaten out every night. I guess I need to do alot of studying up on what the best choices are for eating out!
