Well, have not been blogging much; life happens. What can I say, 2019 has really stressful for me to date and it ain't over yet (excuse the pun).
Let's start with work, in a nutshell in late February we had lost two colleagues who were poached by our former Manager. Who again was not replaced, when my former supervisor announced she was leaving my new supervisor was arriving within 48 hours so much for some heads-ups. Nonetheless, it just so happened it was the best thing for our team ! However, my colleague that I used to work it had already putting in motion his departure he is leaving on June 28th. So I have taken on lots more responsibilty, travelled for work, and I am acting again until October.
Personal: January was busy, lots of birthdays in my family. February work was busy and so was March. I finally got my ergonomic assessment at work that helped with some strain. But, I am still left with a nagging pain in my left bicep area, tried massage and physiotherapist, dry needling still not healed properly.
I had my annual check-up in early May. I gained weight again this year; spoke with my Doctor about this or that. He is not worried, I eat right and exercise. He does not know many 56 years old that does CrossFit 5 to 6 a week. Yeah right, but the weight....menopause etc. anyways was very down about that. In August 2017, I had gotten down to 177 pounds for my daughter's wedding my weight now hovers between 189 and 194 all the time. I know I have mindless eating in the evening, or I do not eat enough. Since this past Saturday, I am have restarted my previous nutrition plan. I am giving myself a month to lose something or if anything.
Did I mention STRESS *lol*, my youngest daughter who has two boys just bought her first home and took possession in May. It has been non-stop renovating, painting, taking the boys overnight finally the move. Helping out with this and that, they now live about 25 minutes from us. And she is now expecting !
In addition, hubby wants us to move near them. So we have been visiting houses, we made two offers and to which we were not successful plus trying to do things around the house to put ours up for sale. When the last one did not work, I basically broke down and told hubby enough. I need a break from all this; I am so busy with work, the grandkids etc. and this upcoming summer I have something every single weekend or almost until September !
So June and July I am hoping I can focus more on ME !
