Feeling like I was hit by a bus

So, I worked yesterday. Went right from work to the gym. Actually put all my stuff in a gym locker before I went to work so I would HAVE to go into the gym for sure after work. Had a so/so run. It was good in that I felt like I ran hard - but bad because I stopped several times to drink water because my focus was off.
My focus was off because I went for lunch with a co-worker who told me some stunning health news. My mind is reeling and I'm so upset..... my words failed me completely. I just didn't know what to say. I feel like a complete failure as a friend. I also find myself a bit angry. Times like this I wish I took kick boxing. I really would love to punch something.

Today I go to WW to weigh in. I had an ok week. I didn't go over on points and I was active. What is making me question how I will do is my dinner on Tuesday night. I had that Alpha course and they serve supper before the meeting. Well, when I got home and counted it up - it had cost me 23 flex pts. That is what flex are for - I know this - but my WW pts go Monday to Monday, and I weigh on Thursday. I prefer to manage my flex... after I weigh!! And the reason I do this is because my weigh ins are not consistent but I want my pts to be. Otherwise I find myself "starting over" often....

Exercise today - walk with the pup (who is still snoozing - he is so tired from daycare yesterday!!) and resistance bands!

No belly dance this week - taking a mental break. I'm frustrated with the choreographies right now. That combined with my current urge to punch something would not be a good combination.

Not much else to report. Making a roast beef for supper tonight. Mmmm.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. I'm so sorry about your co-worker. I hope she/he will be okay.

    Sometimes you just need to let yourself be "out of focus." We can't be focused all the time...our brains would fry, I think.

  2. Sorry you got some bad news. Hope things look a little brighter for you in the coming days. :)

  3. I am sorry for your co-worker...

    Curious, why do you do your points reset off from your weigh-in? I weigh in on Mondays, and my points reset that same day...

  4. I'm sorry. I hope you get to punch something soon. Or that the urge passes.

    Maybe using the flex points at a different time will confuse your body? Maybe? I don't know, don't listen to me!

    You are doing a great job. (((HUGS)))
