What's Been Going On

Friday, April 26, 2013

Another stressful week for me is nearing an end. Lots of challenges with my mother's health but I think things are evening out. Dr. put her on a new med and that seems to quiet things down.

Needless to say, all this stress has done a number on me. First I had the calf injury so less exercise and less exercise leads to back issues. So guess what? My back is acting up again. I am so nervous about the 5k this weekend that I've basically stopped everything except walking and not even a lot of that. I did get a massage yesterday and feel a bit better today. Trying not to sit a lot today either.

With 4 days left until my final weigh in for the challenge at work, and needing to hit the 4% mark to be entered into a drawing for an IPad (which I don't care if I get), I am giving the juice detox another try. I haven't decided if I will do all juice all day or just replace two meals. Time will tell.

I know that I don't have to get the 4%. That the world won't end if I don't. It's not like I'm letting down my team mate, who's lost less than me so far. It's just that it's so easy for me to say "forget it." That I've decided not to. DH keeps pushing me too. He's a pain. emoticon

5K is on Sunday and I hope that my body cooperates and that I'll be able to at least walk it. If not, I'll be there to cheer for hubby. emoticon

    I got really stressed out as my dad's dementia got worse. It's just a very difficult disease to deal with on a daily basis. My heart goes out to you.

    I am so pleased that the meds may be helping your Mom. Outstanding that you and the doctors are moving in the right direction in that regard. WooHoo! for you to be hanging in there.

Sure hope you feel better. It sound like you are doing exactly what you are supposed to do, specifically all you can do and that is smart. Smart not to push when you are injured and smart to get the massage. And of course strong of you to not just give up on your 4% loss. You are still in the game.

HUGS to you. Here's to a great Friday and enjoyable weekend. Sounds like you have a good plan depending on how you feel for the race. More HUGS!
