One of Those Weeks

Do you ever have one of those weeks that just seem to get worse the longer the week goes on ???  I am having that kind of week this week.

My weight was the first factor of the downward slide of my week because it was in an upward slide despite my tremendous efforts at eating correctly - despite my almost manic efforts at exercising - every day - for at least an hour - either working with a personal trainer or following the exercise plan of the MKC - despite the best intentions of making everything count.  But it didn't - the scales were up and in some cases my measurements were up to - how does that work I ask with tears in my eyes because that is the stage that I am now at.  How can I be doing everything so right and it turning out so wrong ?

Then A left for Coffs - which in itself I can handle - but on top of dealing with the stupid weight loss (or lack of) issue and my Dad's prognosis - I really wish he could have been at home this week. I need him more than I normally do because, as a rule, I am a big girl who can stay at home by myself without having to have someone stay with me - but this week is different.  This week I feel like I need him at home - and he isn't. 

Tomorrow we have our monthly board meeting - and I think it is going to be a doozy.  I think there is going to be lots happening - and not all of it will be pleasant - in fact, I would put money that most of it is going to be unpleasant.  I don't do confrontation well - not at all.  I would rather walk out of room that be involved in a confrontation - even if it doesn't involve me.  I anticipate a fair bit of confrontation tomorrow - so much so I am thinking of not going to the board meeting.  But then they may cancel it because there will be no presentation of the financials and then I will only have prolonged the agony.  Maybe I will go and get it over and done with.

On Thursday I have to go to the skin clinic to get checked.  It has been about 4 or 5 years since I last went - I am very naughty I know and given my Dad's situation, I have promised myself not to let it go this long between check-ups.

And then it will be Friday - the last day of the working week - with the possibility of A being home - or not - depending on how the sites are going.  The day of the week when I am in the office with only one director.  the day that either drags or flies by.  But it is good, no matter how it passes - because it means that one sleep from then it is the weekend !

  1. I'm sorry you're having such a craptacular week. :( Sometimes it feels like everything hits at once, doesn't it? Lots of love to you. is K home with you? Hope A is home sooner rather than later. xo

  2. Yes, I think sometimes it is just the timing that stinks. Individually, these things probably wouldn't worry me in the least but altogether it just feels like too much.

    Yes, K is home with me. She has gone to SEs training tonight but that is OK - I am going to watch Burlesque.

    I also hope A is home sooner rather than later - at this stage looks like he will be home for the weekend but then have to go back to Coffs next week.

    Love, hugs and positive energy with thanks for your support and friendship !

  3. oh i feel for you lovely hang in there... have you spoken to your PT and/or GP re your lack of weight loss despite everything you are doing? Just thinking - because when that happened to me thats when we found out I had a gluten intolerance after a long series of dietitian appts and bloodwork!

    All i can say is the cliche, hang in there... You are loved, you are supported and you are caught xx

  4. Hi Lyndal - yes I have spoken to GP / PT and naturopath. Have had blood tests as well. Personally I think it is the pill that I am so I am going to stop taking it at the end of this cycle and see what happens.

    Thanks so much for the encouragement and the support -it is truly appreciated.

    Love, hugs and positive energy !
