So... Haven't blogged in a while, but here it goes.
I am really feeling down about a couple of things. I finally broke down and bought the Turbo Fire for myself. You see, about 3 weeks ago, I had done this darn thing religiously for 5 weeks straight, never missed a day. My poor friend that I was doing it with, her whole family came down with Strep Throat. Everyone got better, but her 7 year old daughter. She ended up in the hospital with Scarlet Fever, only to have surgery where they had to drill holes in her left wrist and left knee to get this infection out/off of the the bones. This was getting into her growth plates! Awful, awful stuff. She has a PICC line at home for the next 3.5 weeks, she has had 4 allergic reactions to the antibiotics that she has been administered to her,...and so on. I am really feeling for my friend, who is so behind in her work (even though she works out of her home), and she is getting severe cabin fever. We were doing so good at working out, and I feel bad, because she doesn't have an "out". I do hope that her daughter gets well very soon!! It just goes to show that we have absolutely no control over what happens in life, that's for sure.
The other thing that I am down about, is that I went from having exercise everyday for 5 weeks, to a damn standstill! Why can't I get motivated??? Very frustrated! I was feeling great, feeling toned, and enjoying being able to workout with my friend, and now for almost 4 weeks, I have been SUPER lazy! :( Ugh! I've been swimming with the kids, but I have NO ENERGY!!!
i went from feeling great and wanting get out and do things with my kids to BLAH!! WTH????!!!
Sooo, my plan is to get back to it! I bought the Turbo Fire system and I am going to get back in it! I have to get my energy levels back to the way they were. School will be starting in 40 days and I need to be where I was when I got off of this fitness trip! I am going crazy! On a positive note, I am still losing, because I am watching what I eat, and how much. Glad that I didn't sway from that, or I would be even worse off...
2 weeks ago was hard..., my dad's birthday was on 6-29, and I was feeling somewhat down. I wish he had made it past 55 years of age. He would've been a proud papa and granddad. He only knew my oldest not even 2 years of her life. Never met the other two babies I had. I need to honor him by keeping myself healthy, and exercising. I want to be around to watch my kiddos grow and have lives of their own. It really starts to make us think about our mortality, when you lose a parent at a fairly early age. As we, ourselves age, things start to go at much a much more rapid pace than we want it to. What a crazy/scary thing that is!
Thanks for listening to me ramble..., that's what happens when you can't sleep and it's 3am. hahaha I want to thank all of my Spark Buddies for helping me and encouraging me. I can't do this without you!
