How's My Week Gone So Far?

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Pretty good. I've stayed within calorie range every day so far and at the low end. I am only 20 minutes short of my cardio goal for the week and I'll make that up tomorrow with dance class. I'm doing my Sassy September Bootcamp workouts with my fellow Divas on the AMC Fans team. I've done my ST this week and my muscles know it! This is the best week I've had in awhile! Yay me!

I'm pretty tired and headed to bed as soon as I finish this. My mom's health is bad again. She is reportedly in stage 1 of congestive heart failure. They have her on fluid meds to try to clear the fluid from around her heart. She was doing very well with her aqua therapy for her "useless" leg and was feeling hopeful about driving once again and now this. It seems it is always something with my family. We probably should not expect things to go well b/c when they do we crash and burn! I know, that is not my usual bright and cheery glass half full self, but it is what it is. Where did that saying come from anyhow? All of the sudden everyone and his brother is saying it is what it is. I guess it is.

Tomorrow would've been my brother and sister's 44th birthday. That always kinda puts the blues on me too. Then, my mother being so sick. Hasn't she endured enough already?

I'm not very strong in my own faith, so I ask my praying friends here on Spark to say a little prayer for her and for all of us tomorrow. Life... It is what it is! Haha!

Well, the good news is that I am doing well in Sparkland. My emotional self is not so healthy this week and niether is my spiritual health. But, physically I'm doing well. I have 2 doctor appointments this week and I reckon I'll get my flu shot at one of them. I hope to show some good numbers in my blood. As good as I'm doing I don't feel any weight loss. Whatever. I think, perhaps, maybe life is good....

    So sorry to hear that your Mom is not doing well. Prayers coming your way. Stay strong, dear girl, emoticon
    I know today is going to be hard on you, as well. You are strong, and I know that you will make it through with the help of your loved ones, and Jack too !! Dog has a way of making us feel better.
    You are doing a great job in keeping up with your exercise and ST. It is a good mind-relaxer.

    Heads up, dear friend. You have been so busy lately, and working so hard in so many arenas. I send big hugs your way. Snuggle up with DH, who will surely spoil you if you need some spoiling, and let Jack lick your face. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. And tomorrow you get to go dance. Yay you!! I think I want to send you a goodie.....
