Here I am

Friday, October 05, 2012

Thanks to all of you who have visited and checked up on me despite me not being around much. It's been very comforting. I'm overwhelmed, mostly by work but it's makng everything else seem overwhelming. I have a big community organizing project that's weighing heavy on my mind but can't get to it because I keep having to compromise with my accounting department and remind them that people's crises are a priority over their paperwork non-crises. Right?! Good grief!
My high impact interval class is a lifestyle adjustment too . It's only twice a week but it takes mental and nutritional preparation all week long. I love it a lot though, because it's keeping me focused on making sure I'm in good shape on all levels. When you do something that intense, you just have to! It feels really great to be challenging myself and getting everything all working together. And I love that the others in the class are competitive in a very supportive way. I didn't think I was competitive against anybody but myself, but when I held plank 2 minutes longer than Mr. Crossfit Trainer yesterday, I had to keep myself from being obnixious and arrogant the rest of the day.
My wheat and animal free eating is still going very well. I know - I'm as surprised as you are! I have thought bubbles with cheeseburgers in them occasionally, but then I think about how heavy it'll feel when I'm jumping around trying to work it off. I'd rather stick with my bird food (nuts and seeds) and beans.
So my presence will be sporadic but please know that you're all in my thought bubbles a lot more often than cheeseburgers!

    Sounds like you are doing great. I also haven't been present, and not doing so great, so congratulate yourself. I'm glad the eating and exercising are both going so well.

    Sounds like you are TCB'ing in a big way. Have you thought about how amazing it is to be performing so well under so much pressure? And the reason is -- your ability to keep your health commitments to yourself (plus a lot of native resilience too I'm sure). Good for you!

    Hi there, it sounds like it is good in your life but not in your work right now.
That is great emoticon
So long as you are strong in your life you will prevail over most everything. emoticon

If it should take a turn for the worse in your work, you will be so much more ready to handle it.

Strength in all things Sharon, you are doing great. emoticon emoticon emoticon ((((HUGS))))) Pat in Maine.

    I wish my dr had put me on YOUR DIET instead on the one she did-I am not a big protein eater and I am having trouble getting in enough calories! I will certainly be glad to get back to my veggies!!!!
I hope things calm down at work-how horrible those accounting types don't understand what is truly important. I need to be there and help you out-ha ha. I was an acct mgr for about 15 yrs. I do not miss those 12-14 hr days. I used to take it home with me and work 2-4 hrs after putting in 8 or more hrs at the office, nope don't miss it-what WAS I thinking!!!
emoticon You are doing an amazing job- emoticon on holding plank longer than the trainer. That is FANTASTIC. I wanted to hit the gym again but guess I will put it on hold till DH's surgery is over and I know what is going to be required for his rehab. Maybe I can fit it in while he is at the rehab center-I did that while he went to cardiac rehab. One just has to make things work. I got his labs set up and the appt for a chest x-ray today-pre-op requirements.
Hang in there, I know you are stong and can do this.

    Hi Sharon. Good to hear from you, but sorry things at work are so stressful. I do hope you're able to ge a handle on them very soon. You're a strong, thoroughly competent lady. Look: in spite of all that is going on (or not, when it should be) you're keeping to your commitment to yourself to eat well and continue the HIIT. Wow! holding that pose 2 minutes longer than one of the cross trainers - emoticon emoticon emoticon Congratulations!

Sharon, emoticon I'm praying for you. For continued strength, determinantion, and 'keep-going-ness'. Nancy
