Nearing the goal
Monday, April 29, 2013
There was a Spark Coach assignment or two that dealt with reaching my weight goal. I'm not there yet, but I'm one pound away. My jeans just about fit. There is part of me wondering if I should try to lose another couple of pounds. Probably not. At least not right away. Work at maintaining the weight a bit first and once I've got that figured out, decide if I need to lose anymore.
My oldest. Everything comes to head soon with regards to work/medical leave/funds, very soon. We made it past his birthday, so in theory, we're good for another year (short reasoning for those who don't know the back ground - he's autistic, highly functioning, but also dealing with depression for which he is curently on leave from work for. He has been suicidal, but also would only do something on his date of birth. It's one of those rules that he can't vary, thankfully). His short term disability has been denied twice. He goes to his DR today and we try to figure it out once more. He's running out of funds, so this really has to come through soon. He's also running out of the coverage period for it (12 weeks), so money is going to be tight anyway if all parties don't agree that he is ready to come back to work. The photo is my oldest when he was a baby.
The middle kid should be coming home from school in a couple of weeks. That's always a delicate balance to reintroduce him into the routine. Suddenly, we can't seem to keep milk in the house for example. The number of dirty dishes goes up 5 fold and the coffee seems to evaporate magically.
My company is doing a Workplace Wellness program in June. I will probably be doing it even thought I've gotten a sneak peak and have some disagreements with the logic being used in some cases. What I'm not at all keen about, is sharing my flaws in the qworkplace. I have a great boss and I don't keep much of my family life a secret from him, but there are things, I wouldn't want people to know.
What I've really been thinking, is that I need a new goal for myself. Not sure what that will be just yet.
