So Sad

Monday, January 06, 2014

I just can't exercise today, or yesterday. My Dad's sick in the hospital in ICU, and I have been on the phone all day with my relatives, which was good, but I am feeling a bit numb and SAD and just can't bring myself to actually exercise. Today, is a good computer day.

This is life, sometimes you just have to put other obligations aside. It's not an excuse, it's just reality.

I am 2500 miles away from my parent's home and there's a major winter freeze there which has grounded a lot of planes at the airports. I sent my Dad some flowers to the hospital. My mom doesn't want me to get on a plane in the bad weather. I feel helpless, so here I sit. I am drinking water, I ate pizza today, but I am keeping the calories in my range. Some days, you just do what you can do. My heart is very heavy.

BUMMED... emoticon I hope tomorrow will be better news.

  I'm sorry to hear you are having these issues. Take a break for exercising and take care of the other things you need to do now for yourself and others.

    I am so sorry you are going through this - I had a similar situation in September with my sister except I could see her every day since I live close by. It must be really hard to be so far away and to feel helpless. I hope things get better for your Dad and for you in the coming days - remember to take care of yourself (even if that means not exercising for a day or two). I will keep you all in my prayers.
