I'm doing it!
Saturday, January 21, 2012
I'm back on track... I'm exercising again.. cardio and strength training.... watching what I eat...I know I should be tracking... I suspect I'm not eating enough so I really NEED to track my food...but I'm feeling better...more positive.. more motivated... and I'm handling whatever comes my way. Sure...life is sending challenges all the time...but I'm dealing....and doing my best!
This week was a challenging one. My dad was taken to the hospital in an ambulance... he's in his 80's..... had a fainting spell... his blood pressure was through the roof. My brother and sister(the nurse) handled it all...I was willing to take time off work and go down and help but I wasn't needed. I spent a lot of time on the phone with my mom...just listening to her. My folks have been married for over 60 years. They are so cute together... when they sit together watching tv they still hold hands...so precious! We worry about mom more than dad. She's quite healthy..but has the onset of alzhiemers... dad has medical issues..is taking many medications for them but he's hanging in ... and we think he covers for mom's forgetfulness... as best he can.
Anyway...the hospital released him today... they got his blood pressure down..
So...the other morning when I got the text from my brother that dad was rushed to hospital my super at work left my review for me to look at....DAMN... I was not happy with what she wrote! I had to meet with her the next day to discuss... so I went home and after phone calls to my family members i was able to sit and thing about what she wrote. I went to work and we had our meeting.... I don't think she realized how vague her comments appeared. She's going to change them per my request.... Heck!! I'm doing a great job... I produce with minimal (if any) mistakes. Usually I spend a lot of my day correcting other peoples (who have been there sooo much longer than me) mistakes.
So...I have some guys flirting with me (makes me feel good and motivates me to get my bod in shape) and who knows.... Maybe I will meet someone after all! But if I don't...I'm content just being with myself.. and enjoying time with my friends. I'm trying to stay motivated and positive.... and I know when I take care of ME.... which entails eating right and EXERCISING.... as a start...I feel so much better!
Keep sparking.... it works!
