Things to Think About

It has not been a good week….

Honestly, that is an understatement.  It has been a horrible, shitty, terrible, emotionally draining week.

My mother was admitted to the hospital on Monday and has been there ever since.  She is very ill.  She has a slew of medical issues which make everything so much worse.  This time it was trouble breathing that sent her to the ER.  She is still on oxygen.  There is so much more, but to relive and go through all her issues, we would be here all night.  There is no greater fighter on this earth than my mother.  I thank God for her everyday and pray to God every night that I get just one more minute with her. She has a crazy positive outlook on life, finding the happiness within the darkest hours.  That is what gets us through.  I just want her to be better and to not be in pain.  I want her to be “normal” like she wants.  She deserves better than the hand she has been dealt, but she handles it with grace.

So, as of this week , I have not worked out.  I need to get back.  I feel my body expanding.  Every night this week I went to work and went straight from work to the hospital.  I could of gotten a walk in when I got home from all that, but I am so tired.  I way overstuffed my face this weekend, thinking , I will be at class next week and work it off. Ugh.

And this is what always happens to me. I get going, I am doing great, feeling good – then bam! My world is rocked. Something happens and I fall off the wagon, rather, have that terrible wagon wreck.  Just so happens this time my world is my Mom.

Now more than ever, I need to be healthy.  I need to be my best.  So this time – my world is not being rocked – more like a slight bobble.  I will be back at my classes next week, continue to eat better and succeed! I need to keep swimming, for my momma.  She is so proud of me and this journey and I can’t let her down.

How do you deal with the bumps in the road that come up?

This is the board in my Mom’s room with our goals for her 🙂


Good night everyone! Hug your Momma’s tight!

  1. I dont think you can blame yourself one bit for being slightly distracted this week. Becoming healthy is a lifestyle and so one week if your dealing with something traumatic and cant get those workouts in, thats ok. As long as you adjust to that and then get right back on the horse. Set backs happen to everyone…even those crazy athletic people lol
    I hope your mom gets better soon! 🙂

  2. So sorry to hear about your Mom’s health. With faith, hope and prayer all things are possible. Take care of yourself so you can be there for her. Best wishes.

  3. Hey. Sorry about your mom, but glad to hear she’s in good spirits and getting through it! How about taking a page from her book and not letting circumstances stop you? You both can work through your issues together and lean on each other for strength. Sending your family good vibes!

  4. Hey Megan! I am just now reading your latest post! I am so sorry you have had such a rough week. I can’t even imagine my mom being in the hospital. I know that must be such a helpless feeling. I hope she is improving. As far as your progress, you just need to look forward and not back. You can always do better tomorrow. More importantly, you need to listen to your body. If you are tired, sleep. After a long very emotional and stressful day, sometimes crawling into bed is the best thing you can do for yourself. Thinking and praying for you and your mom!!!
