Well, well ,well! I lost 1.6 kgs this week
Don't know why or how but I did and I am happy with the loss.
My mum had a comfortable night and her temperature is down. I was very upset last night and actually was crying. I suddenly realised that I might lose her. I know her life is awful, Alzheimer's is a dreadful disease, she is bedridden and while I know she thinks I am someone nice, I actually don't think she knows I am her daughter. But she is well looked after and I know that God will take her in His time. She will be 91 on the 11th. I will go and see her this morning.
Enough unhappy thoughts
This morning I feel like I have been run over by a truck (not that I have ever been run over by a truck! LOL). The Pilates must have worked something, I am sore and stiff. My tummy isn't too sore, so I mustn't have worked it as much as I should have. My legs-calves particularly are very sore. I was on the machine for those. 2 more sessions before we leave for Thailand. I am taking my homework sheet with me and will try to do some of the exercises while away....good in theory! When I told my trim, taught, terrific 26 yr old daughter that I was in pain, her answer was that 'pain is weakness leaving the body'. Interesting comment. Not sure how much pain she has LOL. However, she is a very organised, focussed girl and when we came home from Greece and Europe last year she had put on weight, so she decided to lose it, joined spark, did a couch to run program over a period of eeks (this is the girl who wears stilettos all the time LOL) and lost the necessary kilos and is maintaining it. Oh to be young again and know everything.
. She thinks I should take up running at my age - maybe she is right!
Have a great day everyone.
