I have been at the hospital every day since he went in on January 8 th. Tonight I am not going. My 2 sisters and I have decided we have to try to take turns so we don't burn out. My Mom is there every day, all day. She says she doesn't want to be anywhere else. She usually gets a ride in the morning, then stays all day (grandchildren or one of us goes up throughout the day), then someone comes up around supper time to stay with her until she can say goodnight to Dad then take her home. It has been a very long 12 days.
In the past 12 days I have done very little exercise. There hasn't been time, and there hasn't been motivation. I am sad and just can't find the umph I need to get going. Yesterday I made myself go to my Body Pump class (weight class) and it really felt good. Tonight I did my "couch to 5 K" on the treadmill, and it felt good. I decided that I have to do this. I have to make the time to look after MY HEART, and MY BODY. I know my Dad would want that. Tomorrow is weigh in day. I hope I have lost some lbs. I am so close now and I just want to get to goal. My husband and I are going to Arizona and Las Vegas on March 2nd. My plan is to be on Maintenance by then.
