Fortunately, unfortunately

Friday, October 25, 2013

I've had a family member in the hospital and without getting into too much detail (prognosis is good) it's been taking some toll on my sparking, schoolwork and cardio workouts. But I'm keeping to my meal pattern pretty well and still doing strength circuits. I'm glad the hospital is close enough that I can visit them daily, but it is a lot of running back and forth. Fortunately there's very few fast foods along the way until I'm practically home anyway.

    Best wishes to you and your family member. It sounds like you're keeping on track as well as possible.

    Yeah it can do that. Just had a sister pass and now my mom is in the hospital. By the time you do the few extra demands time has slipped away.

    Take care of your self and find ways to relax and deal with the stress. Gramie did (does) yoga, I do taijiquan, qigong and run.

    But find what works for you and do it.

    God knows I've spent a lot of time in hospitals as a visitor the last few years. But what else can you do? I can fit my meals in around it, and know that this, too, shall pass.

    I understand your stress. I am going through the same thing and then last weekend I broke my elbow to add to it. Since my exercise is hit & miss I am really focusing on my eating and tracking. It is hard taking care of yourself when taking care of everyone else.

    Oh, that is very stressful. Good for you that you are sticking to your food plan and getting your circuits in because in that kind of situation, it can be hard. Once things improve you will be able to get back to your cardio!
