Friday Five {2.15.13}

This one ought to be a good one so let’s get right to it.

Weigh-In: I weighed in on Wednesday but didn’t get around to posting it. I can say that I am not the least bit shocked but the number, but I am surprised it didn’t go up.
Starting Weight (January 2nd): 221.0
Previous Weeks Weight: 221.2
Current Weeks Weight: 221.2
Total (from start): +0.2 pounds

Valentine’s Day: Alex came home on Tuesday so we could celebrate our Valentine’s day early. I was  pleasantly surprised on Tuesday morning by a knock on the door and a delivery of chocolate covered strawberries, balloons, and a teddy bear. A few minutes later Alex was pulling into the driveway. It was a great day of hearts, candy, and rainbows! I love that man more and more with each passing day. Also, this week I have been asked more than ever when we are getting engaged. All I know is probably within a year.

No Race = No Training: A day or two after posting Climbing Everest the Expedition Everest race was completely sold out. And there was one problem with that. We never registered! We planned to register 3 days later, once we got paid, but the race filled up much quicker than anticipated. I wish I could say that I made an easy transition from training mode to workout mode, but I can’t.

Seeking Help / Dr’s Appointments: It’s no secret that I have had a lot going on over the last year. I am finally taking steps to get help and find answers. This upcoming week is full of appointments with specialist, and therapists rather than just my regular family Dr. My health insurance went into full effect February 1st, instead of my previous part-time coverage, so now I have the freedom to see the right Dr’s and use all my available resources.

Indifferent and Uninspired: Even as I write this post I have to reexamine my feelings. I love blogging and writing, but something isn’t the same. You may have noticed a lack in postings here and comments on your blogs lately. Sometimes I feel like I am broadcasting random stuff and using this as a modern diary. While other times I feel like I may actually be doing some good. Sometimes I want to scrap this blog and start all over somewhere else. Sometimes I just want to forge ahead. Currently I am feeling indifferent and uninspired about this blog. I just don’t know what the road ahead holds. I am bummed, but I am not certain how to proceed.

Have a great weekend, friends!

    I’m glad you had a great Valentines! I’ve been there with the blogging, I started a new one but eventually I missed the old one and went back. That’s really too bad about the Everest challenge maybe there is another race you can do like a mud race or warrior dash. One way I got inspired in the past was signing up for a class, (I did kickboxing) after just one months of doing it I felt some much more motivated to keep working out! That’s what helped me get really started last winter.

    I hope that if you do start a new blog that you let your readers/friends know how to find you. I too am sorry that entries closed so quickly for the Everest Challenge … I’ve been corresponding with runDisney about walking in one of their 5Ks and it looks like it’s not going to be possible unless they change their policy on allowing electric wheelchairs on the course. It’s been a bummer since my husband and I were going to do it together as part of my recovery from some health problems. Just have to look for another challenge ….

      That is a bummer! I hope they take your ideas into consideration! It would be great to have more people participate in runDisney. I understand why they won’t change rules for the longer races, but a 5k should be for everyone and anyone!

    I go through stages where I’m more interested in blogging and feel like I have a purpose. Then it ebbs and I feel like I’m spinning my wheels. I think it cycles according to your mood. But I enjoy catching up with you!
