The Evils of Kona Winds and Auntie Flow
Sunday, February 12, 2012
Well, the past week has been rough. I write my blog entries over the course of Friday, Saturday, and, if it is long, Sunday. When I am caught up with my work, I type them out as a word document. I save and revise as I go, and then copy and paste when I am done. I was feeling pretty good after I wrote last week’s blog, and I was looking forward to weighing in on Monday.
Pop has a procedure scheduled for 11am on Monday, so I woke up early to get my walk done. I stepped on the scale first, and wanted to break something. I wanted to kick and scream and cry. I was up 2 lbs! I have been having a hard time and I was just soooooo frustrated. I sucked it up and went for my walk. When I got back and got ready to go with Pop, I realized “Aunty Flow” was coming to visit. I am hoping and praying that is the reason for the weight gain, even though I haven’t noticed water retention in the past. I was supposed to do EA Fitness Trainer, but we didn’t get home from the hospital until after 5 pm, and I was just too tired. It started to rain in the afternoon, and catching the bus, in the rain, with Pop and his wheelchair, was not fun. I went to bed early, and woke up the next morning to pouring rain and winds all over the place. I did not want to get out of bed. Aunty Flow was raging, it was cold, I had rain blowing in through the jalousies, and I just wanted to cocoon up in a ball on the couch and watch TV all day. I didn’t though. I made up the EA FT I missed on Monday, and I walked to Leslie Sansone, since it was way too wet and cold to walk out side. Wednesday was better; more sun less rain. I walked out side and did 20 minutes of Zumba with the Wii. We were back to our usual weather on Thursday, so walk and EA FT. Friday is back to work. I did pretty good on the exercise front this week. I just it pay’s off on Monday’s weigh in.
As I write this portion, it is now Sunday afternoon. I have another hour to go, then my four days off. The Great Aloha Run is will be here next week Monday. I am so ready for it and the opportunity to meet fellow Sparkers. I hope every one has a great week.
