What a week! Bad news, Stress, off program.. back on...

Saturday, June 15, 2013

So Sunday night, the daycare facility which my husband and I own and he runs, caught on fire. It was about 9 pm, and I had gone to bed when his cell rang, and it was the fire department. they were on site, and my husband rushed out the door. Bad Communicator that he is, he didn't call to give me updates until the morning, SO I spent all night worrying. The fire was in the walls outside the kitchen, it was from an electrical breaker. Insurance will cover the damage, and some loss of income as we are closed for two weeks for repairs. I stayed home Monday to recuperate from the lack of sleep the night before. Monday day I went grocery shopping and on the way home had a bad case of IBS accident. Tuesday, I called my doctor and made an appointment to discuss this. Tuesday was a healthy day, gym, calorie range, no night time eating. Wednesday, I had my doctor appointment. Good news, my blood pressure was perfect. I have lost weight since the last doctor appointment, although I was two pounds up from my scale at home. We discussed IBS, and stress and I cried. She looked at my medication list and thought that the constant diaherria was a med issue. She changed my oral diabetic meds, less metformin. Wednesday, I went to the gym, and did 10 minutes before I bolted for the bathroom and called it over. Thursday, I had to be at work at 5 AM for an out of town training, so no gym. I did ok for tracking until late afternoon and then I just eat. Friday continued the trend, and I eat in the middle of the night. Saturday finds me at the daycare, opening the doors for the repair people, and sparking while I am waiting. I should be able to recover the day, and get back on track. I need to plan the next week.

Spark coach encouraged me to come up with a new fitness goal. I achieved my big goal of walking bloomsday. I could work on consistency, but that seems boring. I am going to start a water aerobics class this week, and should get some good fitness minutes for that. My goal is to finish t So my goal is to exceed the fitness minutes from May.
