Weigh In Day! --- and venting about my last 2 weeks.
Sunday, June 27, 2010
This past week and half has been super crazy. First my dad had a heart attack. He had 2 blockages, they repaired one and they still have to go in and repair the other. He is doing better now and is watching what he eats and cutting back on his smoking.
Then my daughter tries to climb onto her dresser to get a hat and the whole thing comes down on her. Thankfully it only hit the top of her head and didn't land on her. I had to take her to the E.R. and she had to have 3 staples.
We lose our puppies to parvo.
and all this was while I was dealing with the stress and nerves of knowing my court date for divorce was FINALLY coming up. It was Friday morning. However, all the nerves were silly because it was in and out in a flash. It was granted the way we wanted it to be. AND having to see him that day didn't bring back my fear and nightmares of what all I went through while we were together. I did have some mixed emotions afterwards. I was so thankful that it did go the way I wanted it to and so happy that it was over but I did feel some sadness for him. I guess no matter what he did to me during the relationship he did give me 2 wonderful children and I know on the inside he is a good person and really did care for me. However, he had bi-polar and that made him a very sick, and very dangerous man. I had to do what I needed to , to keep me and the children safe. So afterwards I did deal with that but was able to wake up the next morning feeling renewed. I finally realized..hey, it's actually over! I was so full of energy - I did my Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance DVD, then turned around and did my 4 fast miles walk at home DVD, all before lunch! I also did some on the Wii Fit Plus later.
I don't really blog that often and part of that is because of the things I was going through. I have decided I am going to at least blog once a week on weigh in day. If I know I have to blog about it, I believe it will help me stay on track on the days I feel I am having trouble. Maybe I should blog those days too, so everyone can kick my butt back into gear.
