I’m back. Getting up at 4:00 AM after sleeping in a few days is brutal.
John’s dad is doing okay. Not great but okay. He doesn’t move as well as he did 6 months ago so the visiting nurse is sending in a physical therapist to try to build up his strength. John & I doubt it will do any good—Serge just wants to die. That sounds melodramatic but I really don’t think it is. He’s 87 years old; should have had knee replacement several years ago but refuses treatment – instead lives on Darvocet (spelling?) & is extremely lonely because he lives 300+ miles from anyone that even remotely cares about him; his own choice but still….The assisted living facility he lives in is very nice & should provide him with plenty of company but he refuses to leave his apartment. So some of his “stuff” is self-induced but he’s 87 for crying out loud. He has been considerably more pleasant to be around these last few trips so I guess I’m feeling sorry for hm.
We were taking by surprise by the weather. I checked the forecast before packing to see temps in the mid-60s. I didn’t expect it to be so warm. It’s usually chilly when the temps are in the 60s. Not so this past weekend. We had to hit TJ Maxx for t-shirts! Wow!
I am having second thoughts about doing a competition. At all. Ever. I do not comply with my meal plans. I enjoy eating my junk more than I want to do a competition. I am not at all satisfied with my body comp but I don’t think putting this kind of pressure on my mind is helping. I’m finding that I want to binge more than usual & then get into a lot of negative self-talk. I do enough of that without adding pressure. So I’m reserving the right to back out at any point but I’ll see how things play out this summer.
Workout wise I did two of those Body Rock workouts. Both were brutal. I really enjoyed them—the time flew by. Then we went for brisk walks for 45 minutes.
Today I was back in the gym. I did chest & arms. I don’t remember everything I did but do know that I did 1 set of 8 chest presses with 75 lbs—another PB. I followed up my weights with another Body Rocks workout. I love the way they are mixed.
Tomorrow I’m going to do legs & then a 3 mile run with Leanne. UGH.
