So I decided to start a fitness steak on November 27 (see prior blog) after reading a blog from MOSTMOM1 called Day 600 - WOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!! about her reaching day 600 of her workout streak. My goal right now is to reach 100 days.
Well the first week (Days 1 - 7) are complete and what a week its been. I really want this 100 day streak and what this week has taught me is that I need to take it one day at a time.
On Tuesday my dad went in for what was supposed to be a day surgery, however it was more complex than they expected and he ended up being in hospital until Saturday. So on Thursday morning I got a call from my Mom saying that she was unable to get a sub (she's a teacher) for Friday so she was going to have to drive home to go to work on Friday, so would I be able to get the day off and drive up to be with Dad.
At that time we weren't sure when he would get released. So I took off right from work on Thursday and headed up to be with Dad and my sister (who because of the stroke she had over a month ago still is unable to drive). It was nice to see both of them and see how well they were both doing. Dad was ready to go home but with still being on a liquid diet and IV that was not going to happen. But he was up walking around so we did lots of walks up and down the corridor, so I got to get my exercise in and visit all at the same time.
Well I am just glad that everyone is doing well, that I kept my fitness streak going and I am hoping that this week will be less eventful.
