- I've had a half-way decent week this week. I'm disappointed in my .8 loss only because it was 1.8 down Saturday morning, but I ate my way through the weekend and ended up gaining it all back by Monday morning. I'm glad I've gotten it down to where it is now.
- I've kept up with my c210k program and ran/walked my farthest distance ever on Monday: 6.3 miles! I did another 4.8 miles today and I am feeling very injured at the moment, so that is discouraging. I hate that I'm making huge gains in my endurance, only to have a friggin' pulled inner thigh muscle sideline me. ARRGG.
- I've been shredding every day and I'm moving to level 2 tomorrow morning. It was those damn side lunges that pulled my muscle, so I'm glad to say Adios! to those for a while. I'm sure Jillian will find something else to torture me with, though.
On a totally personal note: It has also been a stressful week for my family. My dad's partner (yes, you read that right-it's what you think) is in the hospital with pancreatitis, gall bladder issues and pulmonary embolisms (clots) and is not doing well. Dad's frustrated and scared and I'm frustrated and scared for him. The doctors can't operate on the gall bladder with the lung issues and the pain from the pancreatitis isn't well controlled. They can't fully diagnose the gall bladder problem without an MRI and he won't fit in the standard machine because he is so overweight, plus his stomach is very distended from multiple hernias. They've been told he would not survive any surgery right now anyway. Either he'd die from the pulmonary embolism or bleed out from the blood thinners they are using to try and shrink the clots in his lungs. Dad lost my mom to cancer after 15 years of marriage and now he's facing that possiblity again. I can't do anything living 1 1/2 hours away and I'm trying to not worry my own kids. I feel totally helpless. It sucks. Prayers would be great if you are the praying type. Thank you.
