And I just wanted to take a minute to apologize to you for being M.I.A.
But really, I had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week and I just couldn’t get myself to sit here to do anything.
I hope you don’t feel like I’ve let you down because I wasn’t here to help keep you motivated or to send you some awesome home workout tips or healthy recipes. But ever since Thanksgiving it has been one thing after another.
Now, I’m not complaining or anything. Really, I’m not. But the events of the week had me so stressed and distracted – so I thought I would share with you a few of the major issues I had this week:
1. As many of you know, Scott and I decided to move in together at the end of October. The plan was for me to move out of my house, rent it, and move into his house. So, little by little I moved my things into his place. On Nov 27th I had a renter officially take the place but he wanted it for Nov 30th. SO, I had 3 days to get all my crap out of my house, almost exclusively by myself. It sucks when all your friends and family members have actual jobs. So, for about 8-10 hours per day I was driving back and forth from house to house, loading and unloading my Jeep, again and again. For those of you who would like to know, I did make the deadline – sort of. I was supposed to be out and have the place clean by 3 pm on the 30th. It ended up taking until about 5 pm or so to get out, and Scott was kind enough to help me with the last little bit.
2. On November 29th a very special friend of mine was diagnosed with leukemia. I absolutely lost my spirit with this news. This special friend of mine is the 7 year old daughter of one of my very best friends. She and I have a very special bond and I am so sad that she has to tackle this issue and go through chemo treatments. And my heart aches for her family who has to watch their little girl be so sick. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers and send her all the positive thoughts you can. I will be forever appreciative……
3. I was able to go visit my special friend on that same day she was admitted to the hospital. I also went the following night. And somehow, somewhere, I picked up a sore throat and little cold. Now I’m really pissed because I certainly don’t want to go visit her with these germs which could contribute to a further compromised immune system. I did, however, get to take her little sister to gymnastics Wednesday night and that was so much fun! SO, at least I was able to contribute and help someway, if not by lifting my special friend’s spirits.
So, I guess that was the bulk of my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.
But there was one good thing that happened this week.
I was able to put together a new fat loss video with a very important secret to fat loss. If you would like a sneak peak you can check it out by clicking here.
Here’s to leaving a crappy week behind.
