Keeping with it is hard...but worth it!

Sunday, April 18, 2010

This week was filled with oddities. Sunday, the 11th, my Grandpa passed away. It was surreal, because I have already lost 3 grandparents, and with all of them we had a little warning. My Grandpa on my dad's side was sick for weeks. His wife had a stroke and died a few days later. My biological Grandpa (my mom's real dad) in the hospital for a few days before he died. But Grandpa, though he was old and sick, died early Sunday morning at home, in bed with my Grandma at his side. What a good way to go!
I though for sure I would be in AZ for the funeral today, but Grandpa decided to donate his body to science, so we are having a memorial next week, which means I am road-trippin' it to AZ on Thursday.
I am a little worried about messing up my eating, sleeping and exercise routine, but I believe that there are things we can to do keep active and smart while we are away.

ANYWAY! The good news for today is I got back on the scale...and lost 6 pounds!! I am so glad to see that once again my body is starting to understand what it's supposed to be doing emoticon What a relief. If things go according to pattern, then I won't loose weight this next week, but given that we will be away from home, I will be happy just to avoid gaining anything back.
So...wish me luck on my crazy week, especially since I am singing at the memorial (hopefully with my wife)! See you all soon!

    Good luck next week Kevin, I'm sure your food and exercise will be fine, and singing will be great! I hope it goes as well as it can.

    I just thought, if you have to take a road trip, your wife and yourself could take turns driving, while the other runs along side the car! That will be some exercise for you. I just wouldn't pick the interstate for that though. emoticon
