Linking up once again with HoHo Runs and MissSippi Piddlin.
To call this an off week, is no understatement. Tuesday was fantastic. Motivation was riding high after my 3 year fitversary blog post. And then I get "the call". The call that you always dread receiving. Dad was taking mom to the hospital. She had her gall bladder out the Thursday before and developed some sharp pains in her abdomen complete with vomiting, nausea, shortness of breath and the works. They admitted her and there she stayed for 3 days. The diagnosis was diverticulitis (sp?), dehydration, a U.T.I and also her lungs were not expanding completely. So many antibiotics later and she is FINALLY feeling much, much better I am happy to report and at home and resting.
So yea that sort of turned the whole week on its head. I also found out a good friends brother passed away so its been a tough week.
Sunday - rest day
Monday - 30 minute walk; 60 minutes bowling (not pictured)
Tuesday - 15 minute walk; 1 hour 32 minute match
Wednesday - nada
Thursday - nope
Friday - nothing
So yea, tough week with exercise.
The good - better choices with eating with the exception of all the stress eating in the world happening on Wednesday
The bad - the lack of food tracking on MFP this week
The ugly - There was definitely time that I could have squeezed some exercise in. Saturday before the funeral/services I could have done something. Friday, I was just lazy. Thursday after we got mom, home I could have done something too. So yea.
Also one more thing of note. Our tennis team is in the lead for the fall league play!
Here's some pics from the rest of the week.

|Dreadful weigh in on Wednesday. Ouch.|
|He got so sleepy after the walk and playtime that he actually laid down in a gymnasium full of other dogs and cats!|
Sunday after the doggie pictures, Chris and I went to meet some friends for lunch. Steve (pictured in the middle.. below) lives in Reno but his brother passed away last week so he was down for the services and dealing with all the arrangements. John (on the right and my bff) and I went to the funeral Saturday and was hoping we could spend some time catching up with Steve in a non-funeral setting. We are so glad we were able to meet him for lunch yesterday and spend some time talking about the good-ole days. The 3 of us worked together at Siegen Village 10 movie theater some 23 years ago (yikes, I'm old).
You ever have one of those jobs that you always look back on fondly and love? We have a zillion stories of people, events, movies that we just had a blast reminiscing about. We spent about 2 and a half hours in the restaurant just talking and visiting. It was really good to catch up. Just sorry for the reason that he was down here.
So that's my week. I'm not scheduled to play in a match on Tuesday so I'm hoping to start getting more regular with the YMCA again. I mean, I'm paying for it, may as well go!
Hope you all have a great week!
