Not A Good Day

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Woke up this morning with a sore shoulder and stiff neck, so forwent the running and any other exercise as I didn't want to aggravate it.

Haven't done much of anything today but did about 20 mins light jogging this afternoon then started to feel a bit ugh!! Not a good day.

Have stayed within range of calories, veg...on target, water...on target, some of goals met but not all but it's not the end of the world, there is always tomorrow...god willing emoticon

I hate weekends they're so boring.

    No, leaving comments is fine, that is the idea of going public.

Thankyou for your comment, my hubby does tell me the same thing very often but it seems I may have become somewhat addicted emoticon

    Hi There, I'm new to the blog scene so I don't know if it's uncouth for strangers to comment? Or is that the point?

Anyway, how often do you take a day off? Maybe you should rejoice that your body is exhausted and let it heal for a day or two.

Eventful Day

Friday, July 13, 2012

Woke at 4.30am for my run, went for the walk I used to take the dog on as I did the same thing when I got home of going for the lead and remembering he's no longer with us.

Went off to work and managed to get in a 50 min swim during my morning break before my lunch calls plus a 20 min sauna emoticon

Did a bit of cleaning when I got home, hubby was home cos he's been rained off, been looking for a motorhome for some time and we've actually found one we liked and put a deposit on it, picking it up next week some time,we have a vw camper at the mo but I want a bit of comfort now.
We were supposed to be playing badminton this evening with friends but it got cancelled as the sports centre has got a leak on the roof of the courts....typical!!

All in all quite an eventful day emoticon

My calorie intake was within range...water good...managed most of my goals, not bad at all.

Working Hard

Thursday, July 12, 2012

Got up and went for a run again this morning at 4.30am, hubby came with me, when I got home I went straight for the dogs lead to take him on his morning walk then remembered he was no longer with us and brought it all back to me, so a few more tears, went for the walk anyway.

Went for a swim again too for 65mins, went on the motorbike it was lovely to get out on it in the sunshine, picked up my new specs too, so I can actually see better now (when I need to).

Went and gave hubby a hand at work, he's finishing some block paving, helped sweep some sand in between the blocks, and it's a very big driveway then hubby took quite ill and had to go home so I ended up staying and doing it with his work partner for about 4 & half hours, just kept thinking about the calories I was burning, cleaned up around all the working area and skip because there was sand and soil everywhere the messy so and so'.

No alcohol or sugar today so met all of my goals emoticon

Emotionally Drained

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Although today started off well with my run this morning and a swim after work, I had a vets appointment for the dog at 12pm and it was bad news...he had to be put to sleep as the cancer had spread rapidly, not only in his mouth and throat but to his vital organs causing fluid in his stomach, he had started having difficulty with his breathing but with him being a Staffordshire Bull Terrier his pain tolerance is way up there, so was just showing signs of being lethargic which is most uncharacteristic of him, he's usually full of guts and gusto, so the kindest thing is to stop his suffering.

I'm so heartbroken and emotionally drained, I am still tracking what I eat but I can't be bothered to cook so we're going to have pizza tonight although I will have vegetarian, I'll see how it goes, I'm not bothered if I go over calories I just need some comfort food right now but I intend to be on track tomorrow and not let all my hard work go to waste...sometimes you've just got to let slip. I just miss him so much, he's usually under my feet waiting me to drop food and I'm tripping over him but it's so quiet without him panting his head off with excitement.

    Oh condolences to you and your family. We have 3 and my hubby and I received a call yesterday from our vet and was told that our boxer Manny has cancer. We are taking him in this weekend so that they can remove the mass on his leg and then have him monitored and treated. I don't know what to expect, but I don't want to fear the worse. Again, I'm deeply sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in my prayers. emoticon

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My dogs are my babies, and I love them dearly!!! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. At least he is not in pain anymore...nothing is worse than knowing they are in pain and you can't fix it. He is running with angels now. emoticon

That Guilty Feeling

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Had a lie in this morning,didn't get up until 7.30 after hubby had gone to work, I was going to have a break from exercising today, so skipped running, then started to get that guilty feeling, why? It's not like I do it on a regular basis in fact I've hardly missed a day, so why do I feel like I'm not doing enough?

Although I didn't go running but I did 70 mins swimming. Did my shopping, mostly healthy fruit and veg just a few snacky bits for hubby which I'm managing to steer clear from. emoticon

Have taken the dog for his daily walks, although he's struggling now with it.
Took my granddaughter climbing but didn't go to bike night due to the really crappy weather over here. Daren't even go out on the bicycle because of the torrential rain, it is seriously starting to hack me off, roll on the autumn so we can get some decent weather.
