I started out my day having to give up my "babies"...
Samson has been our "baby" for the past 5 years.
She-Ra has been my "baby girl" for the past year.
It was VERY hard for me to say goodbye. I know they are just at my in-laws house, but knowing they are not here with me to greet me when I get home and to cuddle before I go to bed makes me sad. I also know that this is the best thing for my family right now. When the Princess starts crawling, I want the floor to be clean! Samson has a history of biting as well, and I just can't have that at all. I just know that the pro's outweighed the cons. It still makes me sad. I cried all afternoon and I'm trying not to cry now. It almost makes me feel like a failure, because I cannot take care of a child and 2 dogs...But at this time in my life....I just can't.
They need a backyard where they can run around and play. Not stuck in some apartment where they rarely get out because it's hard to walk 2 dogs on leashes while holding a baby.
I'm going to miss them sooooo very much.
But I know this will be a good thing...
I have already seen pictures of them at their new home and they look happy. :)
I know that when we buy a house with a backyard they will be my babies again. :)
I say all of that to lead up to why my run was so good.
I needed an outlet...The old me would have run to the store and bought a pint of ice cream and some chocolate and eaten the whole thing in under 5 minutes...The new me knew that all I had to do was just GET OUT of the house...Outside in the sunshine...I just told myself that I would just go for a walk. If it led to running, that would be great, but I needed to be outside...So I went...And I ran...And not only did I run Week 4 Day 2 (yes I forgot to repeat day 1 lol) of C25K, but I ran for an extra 14 min! Totaling 30 minutes of running in the 1 hour and 11 minutes I was out there! No, it was not a consecutive 30 min. I definitely had some major walking breaks in between, but I did it! I covered 4 miles in total. It felt good. It felt really good! I love the feeling I have afterward knowing I didn't eat that Ice Cream. I did something better for myself! Luckily, I have the best lil Princess ever and she let me go that whole 4 miles. She did have one little cranky bit, but soon found a "comfortable" position in her carseat and was happy again.
Apparently that was comfortable. HaHa :)
My run was great and I'm happy.
Now onto moving into a new apartment and starting over...Again...
This time last year I was moving to Fort Worth from 6 hours away.
This time I'm moving 20 min. away. Still stressful, but a lot easier.
Let the packing continue!
