I'm a cheater... at least I admit it. Tried to do what I was supposed to do and got to the point that I said "Forget it!". Been having some health issues that my doctor can't figure out so I've been banned from caffeine, alcohol, exercise, salt, etc... and I've done really well on it... since July 15th, then today I said enough of that and became Cheater Cheater! I had a piece of caramel filled dove candy, put salt on my deviled egg this morning and after work... yup... you guess it, I'm ignoring her "walk only" orders and putting a little jog into it here and there. So I don't listen very well... or at least not for long... but hey... I'm still avoiding alcohol! ~grin~
HI, I'M JAI AND I'M A CAFFEINE INJESTING, SALT ADDING EXERCISER!!!!!!!

Just heard the news that Farrah died today. Another icon from my youth is no longer with us and I've realized that I'm beginning to see the start of where I'm going to hear more about deaths of those near to me than births... another day older, another day wiser and another life no longer with us.
Her will to live and her battle was strong, but she's lost her fight, rest in peace Farrah!

Just finished another week at the gym I joined a little while ago and as part of the program I'm in, that means I hit another milestone to be weighed and measured. So I step on the scale and the numbers were moving in the right direction (which is good because I'm simply trying to maintain now). Then she pulls the little machine out that does my fat percentage and plugs in my numbers... after it does it's little test I find I'm down almost another 3 percent from my last set of numbers (about 4 weeks ago). Next comes the measuring tape. Here I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I was pleased with the results. Bust, calves and biceps stayed the same, waist, hips, abdomen, thighs all dropped several inches. I was pleased with my results and the staff member at the gym that had measured me congratulated me on my progress. I have to admit, I never thought that in 4 weeks I could see that much progess but it gives me more incentive to hit the gym, even if I've worked a 12 hour day!

As I write the title of this blog "a rough week" I wince, because in reality, while it's a busy, crazy, hectic, tiring week, it isn't really "rough" when I compare it to the weeks of others. Maybe this is a good thing. I started to write this blog to vent and make myself feel better about how much I have to get done this week at work, teaching and at home. But now after I've written the title, I'm thinking about the parents that have lost a child this week, the solider fighting for our country someplace and all the other people out there who are having weeks full of so much more than mine. Thinking now, instead, I should consider myself blessed that I have a family, I am able to teach, I have a job and that my struggles this week should be considered in comparison to others.
May everyone out there who is having a rough week... know that someone is thinking of them and wishing that it gets better!
