When The Going Gets Tough...Get Running
Though it took me away from my blog it has not taken me away from running. In fact running has been a great way to relieve stress and get a break from the non-stop to do lists associated with the robbery. All that being said it is a little harder to feel motivated. I don't just spring out of bed thinking about my run. It takes a little more mental toughness and dedication to get out there. There is a feeling of being overwhelmed by it all, and a general kind of sadness and frustration that this keeps happening. Not to mention that creepy feeling that these guys were casing our house waiting for us to return to work. At least again we were fortunate enough to have all of our kitties safe and we weren't home so nothing that isn't replaceable has been lost, except maybe a sense of security. Fortunately, I had a meeting that day and I had my Surface Tablet at work. Hubby was not as lucky and his new Mac Air was taken again. Both of our TVs were taken and we don't really plan to replace anything until we have a new place.
Putting both feet in front of the other for a run has been a great distraction and has also helped to mitigate the stress. I am also using the Habit Master App to track my fitness related New year Goals. It is motivating to see the little reminder number of my daily tasks each day when I turn on my phone. I am hardly going to let 6 remain there all day. When I feel overwhelmed there is that little accountability pushing me on to keep at it. Hope your new year is starting off better than mine.
Gratitude: I am grateful it was just stuff and both of us and our furry family members are okay.
