A week of surprises, some bad some good
Sunday, March 07, 2010
What an emotional week this has been! The man that I care for suffered several TIA's last Monday. It has effected me in a powerful way and I spent many extra hours with him so that he would not be alone.
The thing that really pleases me is that even though I had many extra hours with him, I didn't throw the exercise out the window. Instead, I didn't go to my normal classes, but did vigorous walk/run intervals while listening to my ipod. Six months ago, I would have easily bagged the exercise, now it's a habit that I must say, I ENJOY!
Another shocking thing this past week has been that my scale has been surprising me! I went months either on a plateau or up one, down two, up, down, etc. The scale has shown me to lose either 3-4 pounds this week. I am very content with a pound loss weekly so this is a great bonus! I hit my 1/2 way mark of weight loss and because of the high emotional things going on it didn't register until the next day!!
I am so thankful that God has provided Spark People with all of it's tremendous tools and especially the great friendships and encouragements from others walking the same path! Thank you, fellow sparkies!!
