Body Revolution Workout #1 done and what's up.

Tuesday, June 05, 2012

I have started Body Revolution over...again. June is a new month. I'm hoping the stress level will be down a notch or two. We have our cruise the first week of October. I am hoping to finish Body Revolution by Labor Day and be down inches and 25 lbs. It's only 2 lbs. a week and completely doable. Especially if I keep to the Paleo lifestyle! In the past, I looked pretty darned fit at 135 lbs, so it's my goal. Plus, I'll be turning 47 on the last day of the cruise. What a present to myself! I even thought about trying Insanity after Body Revolution. Who would have thought???

On the homefront, mom's fractured shoulder isn't healing. It's been five weeks and she is still in a lot of pain, has headaches and upset stomach most days. She is such a trooper and hardly complains. God love her! Dad has been in the nursing home now 10 days. He's worse than he was before he went into the hospital. I'm not so sure he'll come out of it this time. We have a care assessment meeting this afternoon and will discuss a plan. Our ultimate goal is to get him independent again. If that doesn't happen, at least to assisted living. If that doesn't happen, it will be the health care unit like mom. Not good. I can't believe I have two parents in their mid-60s in a nursing facility. Mom because of MS and dad because of liver disease. At least I know they are both in good hands and safe.

I'm going to have a great week! Jillian and the incline trainer in the mornings, walking three miles at lunch, and Body Revolution at night. No sugar, no flour, no dairy and no legumes. I CAN DO IT!!!! emoticon

    Thank you for the update on your parents. It is so hard to believe, in this day and age of medical advancements, that both of your parents are this critical this young. I continue to hold them - and you - in my thoughts and prayers.

    Stress can do nasty things to our weight loss efforts. I hope that your stress level is "down a notch or two." You are gonna ROCK that cruise in a bikini! I can see it now.
