HYC Check-in Week 27

Going through a bit of a stress test this week. My mother was admitted to the hospital yesterday after suffering an “episode” over the weekend. The doctors can’t see evidence of a stroke, but they’re still running tests. Also possible: an insulin plunge or a reaction to some medication she was taking. Hopefully we’ll know more tomorrow. I’m not going to bother asking for your good wishes for her; I already feel them, and I thank you. :)

On the lighter, brighter side of life, I’m managing to get my workouts in. I did a strength training session last night and an elliptical 5k tonight (29:05!) Exercise definitely helps during times of stress, lemme tell ya. Also helpful: Nature Valley Granola Bars in the ER vending machine.

I weighed in last night, but promptly forgot what the specific number was. I know I was up, but it was less than a pound. (All together now: Stupid scale!) That leaves me at -91 and change, so I’m not complaining too much.

Oh, and thanks so much for the kind comments re: my latest photo post. Let me assure you that I look a little less like a linebacker most of the time. The photo was taken just after my workout, so the muscles were all primped up.

And that’s it for me. I hope you all had a marvelous week. I guess I’ll find out in a few minutes when I begin my blog blitz! :)
