Oops?

Thursday, February 13, 2014

I don't really like to talk about the bad, and I still don't feel like it. But I haven't been around the last few days and I'm not sure how much I'll be around the next few.

Still here though. Feb is just a tough one. My daughter was in the hospital yesterday and will go in again towards the end of February for more testing. She's had some medical issues for a while now, but they're becoming more of a focus. We were referred to a specialist last month and it's leveled up now.

She was sick over the weekend and I was up cleaning up after her instead of sleeping. That just kind of set the tone going forward. Sleep is one of those musts for health. If you miss it, your desire to make good choices kind of goes out the window.

My parents were in town over the weekend. My dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's over the summer and my parents and still at odds over the diagnosis to say the least. It's early stage still, but it's a source of great tension and complications. It made for a less than relaxing weekend. On top of the sick kid and no sleep that is.

That bled into Monday, which was a snow day. With no reason to get dressed and go into work and a routine, getting back on the wagon didn't seem too important...

Added to that, we've had several snow days and I've been working from Starbucks. I set the kiddo up with her iPad and I hook my laptop up.

I'm finally back to work and it's Thursday. I'm way behind on miles. 60 for the month? I'm at 8. I've missed several X3 workouts. But I'm going to be honest, it's just not my top priority at this very moment and I don't even feel guilty. The issues with my daughter really came up to the top of the list this week in more ways than one and I just dealt with it.

I do plan to get an X3 workout in tonight though. I'm just not in the greatest frame of mind at the moment. My year-long goal was to be positive, but I'm not feeling it. Today, I'm stressed. I've had too many things hit in too short of a time period. The end.

    I'm sorry to hear about your daughter and your dad. Life can be cruel sometimes. All you can do is take it day by day and focus on the important things, which your already doing. I'm hoping your daughter gets well soon and things start looking up.

    Life sometimes likes letting you know that when you're on track, it has other plans. =/ Keep your head up and just do what you can.
