Week 1 done and complete.

Sunday, November 03, 2013

Well, my first week is complete. I didn't do as well as I had hoped or planned on doing, but, on the same note, I didn't do as bad as I could have either. I had some weight gain last Monday, which I had already anticipated since it was water weight. I didn't walk every day like I had planned, but when I did, I had good workouts. I also didn't record food every day, but that was because I didn't eat every day. (I will touch on that one later) but when I did eat, I was honest and/or ate what I planned for the day. I am going to start adding a Sunday night blog of my coming week's goals. I think that might help me.

First full week

Monday, October 28, 2013

I came back here a few days ago, geared up and ready to go. This is the start of my first full week and I plan to make the most of it. I did pretty good over the weekend writing down everything I ate and eating only that. I didn't get any exercise done over the weekend, compared to the two previous weekend, which were some serious hiking (especially last weekend, hiking with hills at an a elevation of 790 feet above sea level) Will be going for a walk in an hour or so. Over the weekend, I joined an 8 week challenge and a 5K walk your way training program as well as a virtual race here scheduled for the week of Dec. 8-14th. Now to take all my things and find the best way to fit them on my plate.

Cup half full or half empty?

Friday, October 25, 2013

I am stuck in a void. There are things going on in my life right now that I actually don't have any control over and unless those that do have the control decide to help me, I will have to make certain sacrifices that I don't want to make in order for things to get better for me. This is suppose to be a happy time for me, and instead I have this black cloud sitting over me. I just want to cry and hide. This has definitely taken over my mood, emotional state and physical state. I have to shake this before I end up just falling apart completely.

I feel numb and lost

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I feel like I am flosting above myself trapped in some horrible bad dream. I had such an awesome weekend, and then yesterday turned into a nightmare. I went for my walk, and came back feeling really motivated and great, just to turn on the TV and see the news showing what happened in Boston. So, now I have a heavy heart and feeling so bad for all those affected by what happened. Still, I go through my day, forcing a smile. Then at 7:44 pm, my step sister called me to tell me my dad passed away. I knew this call was coming, but I was totally unprepared for it. I have been crying since. I woke up this morning, hoping it had just been a bad dream. I am numb, I feel so lost, I want to cry and can feel myself choking up, but the tears won't come. I know the pain of losing my grandparents, but this pain is so much harder to deal with. I really just don't know how to pick up the pieces.

    Stay39, you're right. I am definitely Daddy's girl. I am his only daughter. Due to circumstances beyond either of our controls, he and I missed out on 10 years when I was growing up. I didn't get to see him until I was 18 and no longer under my mother's thumb, so we had been making up for it since. I knew he was sick and I knew that my step sister (who lives near him and has been taking care of him) would be calling with that dreaded news, but you are right, I was not prepared for it.

    I am so so sorry for your loss! For a little girl to lose her daddy at any age is such a huge loss! I don't think you can ever be prepared for that. I know I will never be! May your memories of his love put a smile on your face in time. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you everyone for the kind words and the hugs. I'm sure what I feel right now. the morning was tough to get through, and I don't know how this afternoon will go. I am just taking everything one moment at a time. I don't want to eat (though I know I have to eat something) and I definitely don't feel up to working out; at least not right now. Maybe I will do some yoga later, just to get some kind of exercise in.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you can take this time to lean on friends and family to get through it. I know it's different but when my grandmother passed away I focused on the family that came from out of town who I don't get to see often and spent a lot of quality time with them to get a positive from such a sad situation.

You're in my thoughts

    I've lost both my parents (my dad just last July). The sudden loss of each of them was the hardest thing I've ever had to face.

Right now the only thing you can do is just let your loved ones support you and remember that God is surrounding you with his comforting presence...think of his loving arms wrapped around you. His son died too, so he understands your grief and pain.

Please know that I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I was "Daddy's girl" and when he died 15 years ago a colleague consoled me with "those who have lost a parent are members of a special club. We know how it feels"

The general sadness today has made it even worse for you. Take care of yourself. I read your 5K blog. Congratulations on that achievement and remember that your Dad would be proud of you.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my father 10 years ago, it was like my world had been turned inside out. It's a pain that doesn't really lose its sting. My thoughts are with you. emoticon
