RES: CUTE 2021 Version


RES

Recommended Posts

Today I am thankful that I started using a planned 2 years ago to keep me on track, this last year and especially this month have been so crazy I'm quite certain I would have forgotten something important if I didn't have it written down!

Couple of events this week threw the workout schedule off, Thursday we had a VIP event at work, I didn't get home till 11pm, less than 6 hours of sleep is not conducive to me getting a workout in.

Still no word on what's wrong with the bike :( I talked to them Thursday and what they've checked so far has not told them what it is.

 

The (new) Plan...Week 2

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. 🌈🌈❄️🌈

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈❄️🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full) Sleep🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈❄️🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here. Bike in the shop, employee orientation Wed. and event on Thurs.

So I've been out of CBD for almost a week...not taking this level of pain well at all. Got used to having it under control

And apparently my bike doesn't have a 'normal' reason why it won't start...or the shop is blowing smoke up my skirt because I can wear one  👿

Worked on my side gig website last night (accounting/bookkeeping, not candles) I forgot to mention I already have a client :D...is it too much to hope I can make this a full time thing and quit my job? 

Oh, and CBD finally came in before I killed anyone due to being out of my mind with pain

Had to get labs done this week for my annual physical...Vitamin D levels are back down, lower than before, liver enzymes are back up, higher than before...and my cholesterol is now acting up....which has never happened before. I wonder if this has anything to do with the pain in my right side for the last couple years?  Something to discuss with the Dr. on the 8th.

Bike is still in the shop, D said she's going to go over tomorrow on her day off and see if she can get better answers than I have managed to over the phone...keeping my fingers crossed, three weeks is a bit excessive

Miami is 5 hours away from me. and June is the middle of season :( dammit

The keys are amazing though, I went for my 50th...I'd rather go there than Jacksonville too

 

The (new) Plan...Week 4

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. 🌈🌈🌈🌈

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈❄️🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full) Sleep❄️🌈❄️🌈🌈🌈🌈 Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈❄️🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here Bike's still in the shop, D went over and they are working on it, apparently it's electrical but the wiring is not matching the schematics. Website done, business cards are in, and used 20 SOC to register as a dba, so it's "official" official now.

 

Going to spoiler some things I don't usually discuss on here, or anywhere 

Spoiler

Last year, after my granddaughter was born, my mother had went to visit one of my sisters. She was a couple hours away and wanted to go visit, but my daughter in law is not well acquainted with my family and they have not really made a whole lot of effort to change this, so my son asked that they wait until the next day so he could take off work and be there...not sure of the reasoning but this was not acceptable and so it didn't happen. I guess my mother was upset about this and complained to my sister and her live in boyfriend, the boyfriend decided to verbally attack my DIL on my mothers behalf and my son came to her defense, rightfully so, and to be honest the boyfriend is lucky my oldest didn't decide to make the drive to come 'talk' to him in person. I was unaware of any of this until my sister starts blowing up my phone about it being my fault my kids never want to spend time with any of them, brought up a lot of things from when we were younger, and said she didn't consider herself my sister anymore. That all being brought on by my youngest refusing to go see them because of what her boyfriend said to my DIL. I'm not aware of what was said but if my youngest child feels like that, it's bad.

So fast forward to Friday...my mother, who won't call me on my birthday, holidays, or any other time...calls to let me know the boyfriend had a heart attack and died. I was asleep and she texted me after I didn't answer, but still...

Then has the nerve to call my oldest, who's birthday was Friday (and she didn't call him then) calls him on Saturday saying he needs to apologize and bury the hatchet. (let's not get into the text she also sent me saying that a call from me might mean something to her...I informed her after our last conversation I assumed I would be the last person she wanted to speak to)

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!?!?

It's taking everything in me not to give this woman a piece of my mind...I cannot believe she has the nerve to think that he has anything to apologize for, much less to call him and say that. Don't martyr this asshole just because he died.  I feel bad for my sister, but I can't pretend I'm even sad about this, and my mothers actions are not doing anything that she hopes to accomplish.

 

 

 

Work event today...time to get ready for it :(

With regards to the spoiler - what a disaster that is.  Emotions are always high and ripple through when something like that happens.

I know that had I not dealt with the shit from my childhood and teen years, that I wouldn't be nearly as empathetic and understanding.  It's more about what we do with what has happened to us that makes us who we are.  I think that a lot of people on here are kind and caring *because* of the drama that they had to endure.  I know I don't want anyone to feel like I've felt most of my life.

Thank you all for your words of support, it means more than you know. Regarding the spoiler item before, my sister called me, seemingly forgetting our conversation last year, and the one where her boyfriend and my son had words...claimed ignorance of why I didn't care for him,  and wants me to go to his memorial.

Quite honestly I can't afford it right now, and even if I could that's the last place I want to go...she has always had problems with people loving and accepting her for who she is and so when someone does she tends to ignore the negative issues about them. I don't fault her for that but I hope she can become more of the person I once knew now that she is not being influenced.

 

Final week was good challenge wise, I've been doing the NF Kettlebell workout and that seems to be going better than the other one I kept giving myself excuses not to do

The (new) Plan...Week 5

Cardio - Three interval runs/bicycle rides/HITT Workout, and one strength training a week. 🌈🌈🌈🌈

Update - Post in thread three times a week. 🌈❄️🌈

Track - Sleep (at least 7 hours a night) Food (eat on plan when hungry, stop when full) Sleep🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 ❄️Food 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈

Extra - Rides, 5k's, events, and any other random stuff goes here Bike's still in the shop, we're working on a charity ride in March, hopefully it will be out by then.

 

Doctors appointment Monday for my annual physical, not looking forward to all that....

Great job on your challenge!

 

My sympathy on your family drama. You so don't need that. I hope your sister gets better. Sometimes it is nice to be far away. You can send a card and maintain diplomatic relations.

 

I hope your doctor can help you get your aches and other physical woes under control. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Dr. update...retest in a couple months to see if the Vit D levels come up, liver enzymes aren't high enough to cause concern, and the pain in my side is probably due to scar tissue from my gall bladder removal.

So, in a nutshell, like the rest of it I have to live with it :(

Sorry about all the family stuff. I hope that all turns around for you as time goes on.

 

I'm also sorry the doctor didn't give you anything to resolve the issues with your side. But at least you know what it is. Have you considered second opinions at all?

Thank you...my family is rarely an issue in my life at my age, but occasionally...

I've considered it, but honestly I doubt it would do much good...I'm just tired of chronic pain is the majority of it
