Head in the sand

I haven't posted in 30 days.

No cruise recap

I did the Star Wars Half Marathon, 10K and 5K with no recap.

I need to stop signing up for Diet Bets as I always suck at them.

Yes my new year started well, then I got back to work and into the long days and repetitive schedule.

I did discover I love the BodyPump classes at Goodlife.

Of course in the past few weeks the barrel of oil prices have plummeted and working in that sector has gotten a little nerve wracking. Layoffs are on the news and in everyone's minds.

So a bit stressful.

I went for my physical last week, I haven't been for 2 years. The good news my blood pressure was normal. At my last appointment it was high.

I go for blood work on Friday so hopefully that's all good too.

Work got a wee stressful this week add in that time of month and my last 3 days have been horrible food wise. I did get approved to go to a conference in April so that's encouraging.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is I went back into a funk. I had to tell my doctor about my Dad, and all the crazy change I experienced in the last year and a half. He said it sounded stressful...uh yeah. Then he asked me if I suffered some depression/ grief. Definitely but I do feel better now then a few months ago but grief doesn't go away it just changes.

I am dedicated to attempting the Dopey challenge in January, told my doctor about that too. He said it sound dopey but didn't say I couldn't do it :)

Tomorrow I will got to WI face this week and start a new one.  I'm strangely excited about a new month. My activity points have been awesome this week so I'm getting there.

I'm not out just dusting myself off and marching forward.

Hi! I missed you! I don't understand the Diet Bet but I am on week 5 of C25K. You inspire me as I don't want to run with Robert but I think "Only 5 minutes more. Sylvia is at a marathon level and you must get stronger before you can enter a race with her." So on I go. You are my role model. I am very proud of your achievments. Thank you for sharing all your medals and stories. xoxo
