Yesterday started out great. We went to the barn and had a wonderful afternoon. Then we went to lunch and downhill from there. My daughter texted me that my mother kept calling. Then there was a call from my sister. Then I got a call from my aunt. I knew this was not good. I called my cousin to feel out my aunt to see what was going on. Apparently, Karen, the older sister who I do not speak to, called my aunt to tell her she wanted to put my mother in assisted living. My mother probably bit her head off at some point because she didn't have mine to bite off. Next thing I know it is phone calls all night which accomplished nothing.
Now, I got a text from my daughter that she has had throbbing on either side of her head and it is getting so bad she can't stand it anymore. According to her, it has been going on for a while, but she thought it would go away. She also said that there is a lump on her head. I called her doctor who said to take her to Urgent care. Lucky for us, there is a children's urgent care right by her school. My husband was on his way to pick her up after driver's ed, and got to the Urgent Care as soon as they opened. Of course, he did not have our insurance card. So, I faxed it to them.
I blew my 1,000 day exercise streak today. I made it for 6 weeks, but I just have no energy today with everything going on. We even had to miss that dinner for the top producers we were supposed to go to this evening, but I wasn't going to wait another day to find out what is wrong with Sarah.
I honestly believe I am starting to lose my mind. I haven't been able to get any work done. Those buyers that didn't show up on Saturday really didn't give us a reason that made sense. Right now, I am tired and stressed and haven't accomplished a thing today. I even had my son come home early because I didn't want to sit here by myself thinking of all that is going on. That was before I knew about Sarah. One more thing to add to the pile.
Update--They could find nothing wrong with Sarah. My mother thought it could be related to her allergies. I gave her an allergy pill and it no longer hurts. I also think it is related to when she is bored. She says that's when it starts. Thank goodness she is fine

Today was not a good day. Well, my weigh in was good. Lost a pound. It was downhill from there. My buyers never showed up to see the houses we had scheduled. That is not like them. I've called, texted and left messages with no response. So, I am a bit concerned. Then, the weather was absolutely awful.. cold, rainy and damp. My husband and I went and saw the houses ourselves because we knew two of them they were really interested in. One of the properties we could only get into one side (it is a side by side townhouse) because an agent who held it open this morning locked the bottom lock of the other side. Great!
Then we came home and decided to watch the season 2 finale of Dexter. I set up my computer with my tv and all we got was pixeled picture. I called netflix and they said that my speed on my modem was fluctuating. I called at&t, who at first said there was nothing wrong, then ran line tests and said there is something wrong with my line and would send a tech out on Monday. Here we go again. I asked if this time they could actually call someone in advance instead of waiting until I call because the guy is an hour late and then send someone. By the way, that one was my fault. I put a cable in a place that I wasn't supposed to put a cable.
After 1.5 hours of jacking around with the tv etc, Brian decides to start making dinner. I know it is a long process with him. So, I decide to workout. Today was supposed to be a rest day, but I had to try the new handweights I got of Leslie's. I did 3 miles with the hand weights and I can feel it. I'm sorry. What she says about exercise changing your bad mood is not true. I am still in a bad mood. I don't know what happened to my buyers. I can't get hold of anyone.
Tomorrow I am supposed to go to the barn. I'm just hoping it is not as crappy tomorrow as it is today with the rain and winds blowing.

I didn't want to do it, but I did. I had a nice quiet day. Caught up on all the shows that I had dvr'd, stayed off the computer for the first time in I don't know how long and my phone didn't ring :) That was a first. I didn't even go to the barn just took the quiet time for myself.
Then...it happened. I couldn't help it. I had to exercise . I am in the challenge to do at least 10 minutes every day for 1,000 days. Oh, but I didn't want to. I figured out how to plug my laptop into my tv so I could watch netflix :) But, the exercise. Well, if I can watch netflix, I can put Leslie's Walk Club on my tv too. That was the answer. I did Leslie's thigh workout, well, that was 11 minutes. Hmmm. ... I said 10 minutes. Well, I then did Leslie's ab workout. Ok. 24 minutes not bad. But, now my heart rate is up..
One 3 mile walk won't kill me. So, I turned on Walk it Out in the other room and Leslie's 3 mile walk with the Stretchy band in the other. I finished that 3 miles, but I love doing Leslie's walk in central park only another 14 minutes. I finished my 10 minute workout 95 minutes later. I burned over 550 calories, got almost 10,000 steps and found my beautiful .

I can't stand it when my routine isn't normal. This week has been really strange and I can't seem to get on track. Normally, I do my workout around 11:00 or 12:00 for an hour or so. I do Leslie Sansone and Walk it Out. The last 3 days have been off. They have been more outside activities so it feels to me, like I am not doing enough.
I just feel out of sorts. Not to mention we are eating out way too much again. Need to stop that again. I haven't been eating bad, but it's way too hard to keep track of sodium when you eat out. The scale right now is showing that.
I was supposed to go to the barn today, but it is supposed to be 80 with Thunderstorms this afternoon when we could go. Further, my husband has my car because his is in the shop. I always feel weird when I don't have a car. My mother is still calling and leaving messages which I have been immediately erasing.
Today, I am going to work on getting back into my workout routine. I am going to eat healthy and, hopefully, at home. I did feel good buying new clothes yesterday that actually looked good. I ended up going into the women's section, but the clothes were the same. I've decided size doesn't mean anything. My friend and I took a petite large and compared it to a petite small. The difference was 1/4 inch wider and longer. Ok...sizing makes no sense anymore.
I am not even going to worry about size. If it looks good, I'll buy it. I am tired of wearing sweats all the time. Off to make some sense of this day and get my head on straight.
