Life is just stressful as an adult, but lately I feel like we have gotten to an unbareable amount. With KC going into the final stretches of school he is constantly studying, at school, or just thinking about how he should be studying. Not to mention that he is applying for internships. And on my plate, my work let go another person last week, thus piling more onto my workload. And then I got bad news today, that made me feel absolutely underappreciated. That isn't something you want to hear after working 10 extra hours the week prior to. Gosh, being an adult is tough.
But luckily there is one thing that I can always rely on to make me feel like I can kick this crap in the butt. Today I especially needed an especially great workout. You may not believe me but I can really enjoy running a few miles, lifting weights, and accomplishing a new stride in my routine. Today, was especially good and I am so grateful that I didn't just go lay in bed and turn off the lights. Instead, I went to my boot camp class and seriously worked out all my stress and frustration. There is nothing better than sweating out your problems.
On this same note. Our neighbor, Steve, KC and I signed up for the upcoming 5k at the law school. I am so excited. I really thought that 3 years out here would pass and I would have not run a race. Usually at this time of year I am starting to prepare for the Race for the Cure. So this is a perfect opportunity to fulfill that competition desire of mine. And it helps me only get more involved in my day to day workouts.
And I definitely need to ramp it up, after eating at Casa De Nana's this weekend. If you can remember KC and I had a bet going about March Madness. Let's just say I won after the first weekend. I cashed in on Friday and picked a local mexican restaurant for dinner. It was the closest to La Cocina that we have come to. They even had dollar store sombrero's and fake parrots. No mole sauce though, instead they used chili. I didn't try it, probably pretty similar, I would think. And KC didn't like it so it must have been good mexican food.
