Yeah. I haven't been doing my exercises or watching too well what I eat for over a month now. I had been out of state helping my family out. My pap was in the hospital. Was supposed to just be a routine thing, go in, fix his pacemaker, then he goes home. But then he went into cardiac arrest and his kidneys were failing. They put him in a coma because he was full of tubes and he kept trying to rip them out. Then he ended up pretty much going crazy. He was seeing things and insisting that he was going home everyday whenever they finally let him come to. Anyway, my mom had to drive my gramma to and from the hospital everyday to see him. She has custody of all of my sisters kids (ages 2, 5, &6) So I came up to watch them because my sister wasn't doing a very good job and didn't want to be there anyway. (of course, why would she?) Anyway, while up there, I didn't do much of anything. He got out of the hospital, then my mom went in to get her gallbladder taken out. Stayed up a bit to help her with lifting and taking care of the kids and getting the house cleaned up some. Right now everybody is doing good, but do to lack of time, I hadn't exercised or watched what I ate. Now that everybody is back to normal, and I'm trying to get back on track, I'm going to start today. I've lost some muscle mass (insert tear here) so I need to work to bring it back and to retone myself. It's amazing what a couple months can do.

    Wow, that sounds like a really emotionally and physically draining month. It's hard to take care of yourself sometimes when there are so many other people that need you.

    I hope everyone's doing better now, and continues to do so.
