Rest day - or rather, a day of quiet thoughts and remembrance. It's a year since the terrorist attacked our peaceful city and the beautiful island filled with happy young people on a summer camp.
The weather today has been like last year, pouring with rain, the sky is crying.
I've not been to the city but watched the ceremonies and the big memorial concert from home, thinking of those daughters and sons, sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers who never came home. I've thought about my own father too, inevitably.
I'm moved and grateful for the music, poems, compassion, love and memories - a big part of today.
A young girl moved me so much when she sang on the island, only a short distance from where she watched her boyfriend get killed a year ago. I'll never forget it.
I'll never forget the special finale of the concert tonight, the city hall bells chiming a solo with the symphony orchestra. Magical.
Or the Boss making his appearance with Little Steven, singing "We shall overcome!".
Indeed we shall.

The Plan for January was:
Another year. Focus on getting back on track. Back to basics and still allow myself time to grieve
Food: track it if you eat it!
Fitness: track it. Two-day rule. ST, cardio and random acts of fitness
Rest. Sleep enough. Meditate. Yoga. Gratitude.
Blog or visit friends SP pages 1x week or more.
Food: Tracked every day! Some guesstimates, but good effort!
Fitness: I'm getting back into the good habits. Can increase intensity next month, but follow my two-day rule again.
Need more sleep and rest. Got into a bad "habit": wake up at night and I struggle with my thoughts around 4am. Work related, grief, or a mix?
Could be more present here on SP.
Blog more to deal with thoughts?
I don't see any change weight-wise, so I need to step it up next month! It feels good to move!
The February Plan:
Food: Keep tracking daily. Stay in range. Drink 1-2 l water. Eat 5 freggies.
Fitness: Keep tracking. Two-day rule.
Cardio: Intervals 1x/week, walk/run 2x/week.
Strength: Gym program 2x/week, plank and squats 2x/week. Random acts of fitness. Stairs.
Wellness: Sleep before midnight. Meditate. Think about something positive daily. Gratitude. Daily post on SP (blog, team message or friends page)
Thank to all my friends for being here for me!
