HI Rolland,

happy Easter!
Things are fine, just very busy with my new job, which I enjoy. But slowly getting backt o a bit normal life. Have been working very late every day.
Then this week I have been busy with a Hindu wedding, nephew of a good friend. We had so much fun, but it all takes so much time. Whole wedding with all ceremonies takes about 1 week.....

How are you and your family? Hope all is well

Congrats to the new daughter! Your family is growing. Can imagine that all that is keeping you on your feet.

I finally got a new job. Have resigned the current one and am hoping to get work permit etc sorted out to start new job on 1st of March.

Will be doing Project Management in a company doing Security Installations all over Africa. Yep I know not exactly the medical field...LOL

BTW while doing my PMP training the first thing I realized is that project planning is very similar to Nursing Care Planning.
The exam was the hardest I ever did, but I think it was partially because I had so little experience in Project Management when I went for it. It is one of those exams where you need both practical experience & book knowledge. Surprised I failed the first time? I did pass the second time though.

Hope you you find a better job with a better salary so you can get ready for school fees.... LOL

Hi Rolland,

yeah it has been a long time. No I didn't get the job, and another one as well. Both because as a foreigner I need a work permit and they have become expensive. Really frustrating. I hate my current employer, but have to hang in here for a while.
But the team I work with are great. Sicne we grew together to become a real team, we have made big strides towards becoming organized in projects & have fun together.

I also managed to pass my PMP exam - ok on the second attempt.... LOL - and am glad the studying has paid off and now I can relax.

Am struggling with my weight and am retaining water as well, so that is really frustrating.

Hope you find a better job.
How is the family?

Have started tracking food again and it is working, 3 pounds in 3 weks so far. Ordered the new Spark Solution Book and got 3 months free Spark Coach, so am using that as well,

Desparately need a new job. The situation is becoming worse all the time for me. Have meanwhile done some training in Project Management, but don't even have the time to prepare for the exam. Have not scheduled it. Did trial exam of 25 uestions yesterday and scored below 50%, need 70% to pass......

Otherwise am fine. Havea job interview lined up on Thursday. Job won't pay more, but sounds interesting.

Hi!!!!!!!!

I've got nothing to contribute about running. I only run when the police chase me.

just kidding, I don't get chased by police. I throw donuts in the other direction.

Trust me I understand...... LOL

My biggest problem is the mental picture of me in the olden days, sleek & skinny running at high speed (I used to be real fast, you are talking of Halfmarathons at 1hr40min average, personal best 1hr 30min, now I am happy if I manage 2hrs....LOL), then I happen to see myself running now reflected somewhere....... oooops how is that for a wake-up call..... Little fatso hobbling along..... Also some of those I used to run with (and be faster) are far ahead of me now.....

I keep telling myself that I need to be thankful for every day I can run.
Am going for a half marathon next week. Hope to finish in good time. My goal is 2hrs 15min, since I haven't trained that much. It is realistic, since I did 18km in less than 2 hrs in a hilly route and the HM is almost flat.

But I keep on dreaming of that time when I had done the full marathon and was so fit. I felt like I could run for ever.

feedback? what feedback? lol..

yeah, i know.. it's just a goal of mine to be able to run consistently, non-stop, over a particular distance.. i know it's just a matter of time and effort.. i see people run, and i wish i could do that, and make it seem so effortless, then be able to turn it on for a little, then slow down and recover, all while running.. know what i mean?

Don't feel bad about walking inbetween. I actually use run-walk-run (Galloway method) on most of my runs now and was thrilled to realize that not only my finishing time is the same or better as if I had run throughout, but my joints feel better and when I lock the overall time in the tracker I have often seen that i have burned more calories.

I did a 18km yesterday, man was I tired afterwards..... But now I know I can survive the HM in 2 weeks.

Well none of the other team members sems to be active. in our threads. How was your feed-back on your team email?

Hey Rolland,

sounds like you are getting back on track. 3 runs a week is good.
I am consistent in running now, twice on the treadmill for 30 minutes then one long run, right now I do 14 km, but still increasing and Saturdays when I can either a long walk or run, right now it is too cold for a swim.

While you are buying a house can you buy one for me as well???? LOL Had been on my plan for this year when the lending rates were still affordable (that time the interest rates were down to 11%, but last November they shot in the air and are 28% now. The government has "recommended" to lower them, but since they have nto lowered the central bank rate, nothing is going to happen. So now I am back to the drawing board and have to rethink everything.

Tell me about being busy at work.... Oh how I dream of a 40 hour week. LOL

Hang in there! How is your family?

hey.. food tracking sucks for me.. i'm obviously not as consistent with my activity on the site anymore.. i do get on, but i never get big enough blocks of time to really do much.. busy at work..busy at home.. lol..

.. but fitness-wise, i've gotten closer to being back on track.. over the last several months. i've been slowly building.. and am now up to doing 3- 20-25 min runs a week.. not prepping for a race, but trying to build a good base for instance that i want to get back into race training for next season..

besides work being crazy, i'm in the middle of buying a house.. so life has been hectic lately..

Hey Rolland,

great that you are back on. How is the food tracking going? I don;t track regular at the moment, but I also know pretty well where I need to improve..... LOL
Haven't been active on the message boards so am not sure if there a new people .

Great that your hand is better!

I am doing ok, restarted going to the gym (currently 2 times a week) in January. Am doing ok on Asthma medication (my asthma is exercise induced... not funny) and think I can start training for the halfmarathon in September, just have to take it real slow.

The cataract surgeries in December went well and I enjoy my good eye site, have gotten used slowly to my reading glasses and really enjoy being out in the bundus without having to worry about contact lenses, dust etc.

Hope things go well for you
Steph

Hi rolland, hope your hand is healing now. Reminds me of when I broke mine 2 years ago. I had fallen while jogging.... Was doing laps at the school and tripped over an edge on the track border, fell on my hand and the arm twisted and my full weight on that hand was too much for the little finger.... broke the middle hand. It took quite a while to heal and in teh beginning I would feel any change of temperature, also the swelling took a long time to heal. Mum (a physio therapist) taught me to let very hot water run over the hand for 10-15 minutes at a time and somehow it helped. Now I don't feel anything.

I got my salary increment and it was more substantial than I had hoped for. Also the inflation has slowed down, Actually fuel price has been lower twice! So I can afford the gym

Ended up going for cataract surgery before the end of last year, so I wasn't able to exercise at all for 6 weeks. During that time I gained 2kg. But now am back to exercise. Am not running outside yet, since I am still getting used to the asthme medicines and want to train in the gym first, so that i can stop anytime if I start to wheeze.
I found a gym near my office, which I like and can afford, so I started going 2 weeks ago, Really have to start it slow again, and feel silly lifting those low weights..... but I know I have to go slow. Most important things is I am back in the gym!

Also our boss has agreed that we will be closed 2 Saturdays of the month, so I can start walking with my SP buddy Nyaramula again, at least once in a while.

This is starting to look like an exciting year!

lol.. here i am again.. for just a flash..

i saw your pcs.. very cool.. i'm always curious on how other cultures celebrate weddings.. how are things back at home now? so you haven't been working out, huh? sorry to hear that.. i had actually been starting a kick. bvut then i broke my hand playing with my daughter on a playground.. freak thing.. i was crawling up a tube slide, and after i grabbed onto the platform above to pul myself up, i slip on my knees.. and as i caught my weight, i hear a crack on my hand.. a couple hours later, i find out it's a spiral fracture of the 4th mc instead of a dislocation.. yay.. happy christmas to me..

but i've actually been losing weight, i think, as of lately.. unfortunately, it's due to loss of muscle mass then good weight loss.. oh well..

HI Rolland,
good to see you on again.
I have been so busy at the office I don;t get out of the office early enough to go for a run and have no money for the gym. Try to at least walk at lunch time (was stopped today by torrential rainfalls..... ), But otherwise feel like I am getting weaker as well. At least haven't added much.
Am due for a salary increment, so maybe I can afford the gym again. But inflation is crazy here.

My trip to Switzerland & Germany was great. The wedding was beautiful, it was cute to see my sister's 2 boys fully involved in everything. There was even a bouncing castle for them, since Philip (the older one, 7 yrs) wanted one.

I have posted a few pictures on my page.

steph - how did the trip to germany go?

ronnie - so how's your daughter in CO?

i've been slacking big time over here.. life has been hectic with 2 kids and a travelling job.. and my classes that i'm almost done with.. life has been go go go for me.. so suffice to say, my fitness and good eating have fallen off.. however, i haven't gained my weight back.. i'm just sluggish, and i can feel me being weaker.. i'm hoping to breathe a little in the new year.. =)

My daughter graduates from Army Apache helicopter mechanics school Aug.19 th.She will be home on leave for thirty days before she leaves for her new base in Colorado.
The kid has already started picking up shifts with her old EMT company while she is home.She enjoys working concerts and Raves in the Los Angeles area.She will have interesting stories to tell her" battle buddies" when she goes to Colorado.At least when she is working the concert/racetrack circuit she won't have to carry a M-16.

EMSCHICK,

wow that is a great responsibility to be acting in-charge. Hope all goes well and you manage to get all the daily chaos sorted. When I used to be alone, all hell would break loose.... It was like I would attract not just work but all those chaotic chases. But in the long run that is what made me the person I am and I learned to cope with almost anything and find solutions.

Now don't you go administrating your own meds...... I remember injecting myself i.m. penicilline, the kind that is VERY thick and cloggs up the needles..... I had to use 2 needles and injecting in the muscle is not easy on yourself.... but I was in the bush and I certainly did not want THAT Doctor injecting me. Also here in Eastafrica the standard is still in the glut. max. and when you inject bigger amounts and thick stuff it is just too close to the nerve, so i did it myself....LOL

Thanks I am really looking forward to the trip. 2 more days of work.

Hello guys and gals!

Steph-glad your stepdad is still able to be at home, that has to be easier on him. Have fun at the wedding!

Rolland life as a medic is good. I've finally gotten comfortable with it, just in time to recertify lol Well I have until March but it's close. I'm acting chief right now as the chief is out of town for 3 months. Actually he's out of the country not just out of town so that makes it a bit tougher. I just got home from vacation so I'm trying to get back in the groove of work but it sucks. Friday I have to get my wisdom teeth removed, I'll be getting an IV for the first time in my life. They gave me the list of meds I would be getting and I laughed because I can administer most of them myself. But not..to myself..cuz that would just be bad.

Rolland,

Stepdad is stable and at home. Of course some things are not like before, but so far the insurance is still paying for the community nurse to come and help Mum.
I am flying to Switzerland on Sunday to be with them for a bit and we will drive to Germany together for my Baby Sisters wedding. hope all will go well, but am looking forward to seeing them. My aunt will also be there, so it will be fun!

Totally agree, and it doesn't get better...... Midlife sucks.... With all those health issues creeping up on you and feeling down about all those things you haev to realize you will never achieve in life.... But you can still dream.

Rolland,
I got a job, but then the company was unstable. Now the company has been integrated into the group of companies of one of the share holders. This way we have a stable income and voila i am selling computers. Who woudl have thought so.
Anyway I am not in sales, but in Customer Relations and actually enjoying it. Best of all, they are appreciating my work and telling me so! So you still get the Adrenaline pumpoung with all the little crisises we solve every day, But right now i do enjoy not havign to make life-and-death decisions and having been a Rescue Nurse adn operating in the bush has really prepared me for this! Some guys wonder about how I come up with solutions quickly.

But currently my Stepdad is very sick (82, cardiac patient, diabetic, cancer survivor) with pneumonia, had to be resucistated last Friday and seemed to bleed from the lungs yesterday. Was very thankful that he lives in Switzerland, where patients can be transfered by helicopter to better Hospitals quickly. Turned out bleed was from the stomach (probably caused by the drugs he is taking, made worse by Marcumar), btu they managed to stop it, and don't want to do a gastroscopy at this point, since he is too weak.

It is his birthday today!
But at least he is stable for now and Mum can take a breather.

hey guys.. how's everything been? i haven't been on as often as i would like.. but with this new job, i've been very busy.. i guess stepping away from the labs is good for career growth, but now i don't have free chunks of time during the day.. anyways, i hope to be back here soon..

Scooter,

good to hear you are back!

I need to get back into an exercise routine, but too many changes in my life and no money for the gym, so things have been hectic...

good for you.. i'm very out of the ems world.. i pick up a backup shift every now and then, but that has been amounting to nothing.. maybe someday, i'll have time for more active duty.. so suffice it to say, i don't feel as comfortable/confident with my basic skills.. =)

Mine. I've basically "checked out" emotionally because I needed to protect myself. I was hoping that him not being home would make me realize whether or not I want to stay with him. One week in and I'm just fine without him, but that also makes me feel like a majorly bad person.

lazy way is better than nothing!

trial separation. We have had a lot of issues since he went through a bout of depression 3 years ago. 3 years is a long time to be unhappy in a marriage. We are both in counseling and have been for awhile, hopefully this is the final "wake up call" necessary and we can get back on track.

So you're back to running on the band aid box? that's great!

It's hard for me to keep up anymore. My husband is moving out next week. As you can imagine it's not easy right now. I just saw the email from the other day and wanted to stop by.
