(counting calories/walking/elliptical/weights/bike)
Weight: 121.5

My weight was really low this AM, and I could feel it, but i do think it has to do with water weight and being dehydrated in the AM since I went to the gym  really late and didn't have dinner after, it was 10pm when i got home.

My grandma has been in the hospital this week, she is not eating, and only eats when I bring her ice cream. My dad has been away on vacation, on a cruise, with my mom and therefore hasn't been able to see her.  I know he's very upset about that.  I have been seeing my grandma every day since Monday when she was brought into the hospital from the nursing home.  Tuesday I took off from work so I could prepare for the busy week - very glad I did.  I did laundry, cooked, and everything that needed to be done so that everything could be in order for today, my parents coming home, and the week - just being able to get through the rest of the week with no free time at all.  After seeing her last night, I went to the gym, it was already 8pm when I just arrived. I did the weights routine, instead of just cardio, because I knew I wouldn't want to do weights tonight with my parents coming home, and needing to pick them up and well as go to my grandma with them.  On Wednesday, my boss actually asked me to come an hour early on Thursday.  Well, that was a Fail!  I came about 50 minutes early, brought coffee for me and the boss, which instantly had him forgiving me for being late :-) but it was a fail bc i was on another planet, not doing good work yesterday at all. working slow, etc, bc i was exhausted!

happy to pick the parents up at the airport early this afternoon, and so close to work :-)

calories up to visiting grandma with parents (yay they're back!!!) 1600.

dinner: veggies in two pitas: 350, banana in pita 220: 570 or so.

total: 2170, maybe a snack later.

bar 210

total 2380 or so.

exercise: hour jog

 

 

Progress as of today: 3.5 lbs lost so far, only 3.5 lbs to go!

worked till 6pm today. 8-6. there are NO WORDS to express my freaking anger at this moment. my boss took advantage of the fact that my folks are on vacation and that i have all the time in the world, no family. i am angry and alone and upset. i am sooo very upset, you have no idea. i have no time anymore for myself, even to exercise right. i am upset, so angry. i am 30 years old and NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING to show for myself. i am depressed, so so so depressed, upset, unhappy with life. i am miserable.

i hope things get better.

the only thing that is much, much, much more upsetting is what happened today - the horrible, disgraceful, amoral, outrageous, insane shooting in CT. some things should just never, ever happen and this surely is one of them.  to shoot the most innocent is the work of a cowardly, crazy beast, not a human being.

goodnight.

2200 cal.

jogged for an hour, finally getting home to relax at 9pm.
