This has really been an exhausting week. Draining, I guess, is a better word.
The entire week seemed to have went by so fast. There was something
that needed to be done just about every single day, whether it be gather
photographs, documents, meeting with funeral people and having the
hospice care come and pick up their equipment from the house. I ended
up taking off work both Wednesday and Friday to see what I could help
with. Chris took the whole rest of the week off so he was pretty much
there all the time helping his mom and brother gather everything that
they needed to.
We had a small service for Mr. Bill on Saturday and it was a good turnout. More people than Chris, his brother David and their mom expected and I'm glad for that. We spent the time reminiscing and telling Mr. Bill stories with everyone. It was perfect and exactly as he would have wanted it, we think. After that several of us went to his favorite restaurant, Piccadilly, and ate dinner.
As far as a diet/exercise update, well here goes. All I've done was log into My Fitness Pal this week just to keep my streak up. I have not entered any food for the week, nor have I done any exercise whatsoever. I'm starting week 2 of December with a big ole fat 0 exercise minutes. To say I've had a bad week, is a serious understatement. Not only have I fallen off the wagon, it has backed up a few times just to roll over me.
But... I'm back to tracking today. I'm going bowling tonight so that will be at least an hour and if I can squeeze in a walk that would be nice too. And back to the gym/running starting tomorrow. I can't let last week pull me back down and I know in my head I couldn't have gained all the weight that I've lost back in one week but it sure does feel like it.
Even with all the sad stuff that was going on and that we were dealing with this week, there were some moments of happy too. I got a start on some Christmas shopping! Maybe if I can knock it out between this week and the upcoming weekend, I won't be last minute like I usually always am!
The cats decided to help me decorate our new tree. Let's hope this tree lasts longer than the previous one (their fault too, by the way!)
Our gargoyle decided to get in the holiday spirit as well.
And Mr. Skinny Geek finally got his PS4 yesterday!
Once we got home and thawed out from standing in the cold and rain for about an hour and a half, I spent the rest of the day snuggled up with kitties. Yesterday, was a much, much needed chill kind of day!
