Bleh week

Need I say more or is this post's title self-explanatory? 

This past week has just been bleh and then some. I've had a myriad of doctor's appointments. Literally, Monday through Friday I was driving helter-skelter across town racing from one doctor's office to the next or anxiously awaiting a procedure. Let me just say this, as an ER nurse I work my little behind off to save lives and do patient advocacy but being on the receiving end, as a patient is a completely different ball game all together. Anyway I digress for lack of strength to divulge or go into further details at this point. But ya'll send me happy thoughts, positive vibes and prayers.

Last Sunday I took a break and did not workout. On Monday, the boy and I went for a quick 2.2 mile power walk. On Tue I did a 1 mile walk in the blazing Cali heat. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday due to aforementioned reasons I did not workout. On Saturday I took it easy because I was status post a major procedure done on Friday. This morning I woke up and all I wanted was a street-side cafe breakfast with lotsa coffee, yummy breakfast entrees, sunshine and laughter so I dragged the boy out of bed to which he obliged. Quick shower, ditched the car and walked down to the village's breakfast cafe and had a sumptuous breakfast :) The walk was so refreshing yet just a tad bit much on me. But all the same enjoyable and somewhat liberating. I soaked in the sunshine and fresh air and loved it.

On a lighter note, I have been eating lotsa yummy fresh and healthy food this last two weeks. I'm the biggest seafood lover and I have been alternating between yummy Salmon and Tilapia. My tummy is much much smaller which probably means I have been bloated this whole time and didn't even realize it until now. Yay to small changes making a huge difference!!! I'm definitely not chugging as much water as I should AND am working on it BUT I'm also not drinking any soda/concentrated/carbonated drinks. Win-lose I know.

I'm hoping to make a quick recovery and be able to pound the trails BUTT IN by mid-week.

I hope everyone had a good week and an even better weekend :) Wishing ya'll a lovely week.
