It's hard to believe that it's only been ten days since my sister's wedding.
It's a little shocking how much of an emotional roller coaster life can be sometimes.
I spent a lot of time with my family last week. My mom and I had several long talks and we spent a lot of time talking about health. How precarious is can be. How ridiculous it seems that some people take so little care of themselves and seem to live forever while others try very hard and are felled by seemingly random illnesses or events.
We decided that, even though there are no guarantees in life, we're never going to stop trying to take care of ourselves. I'd rather be fit and healthy and feeling good for a shorter period of time than live a long time feeling awful.
So, despite the roller coaster that last week was, I kept up my swimming, my back to running schedule and my healthy eating.
It's a new week. By the time friday comes, I will have graduated to running 8 minutes, three times in a half hour. That's 24 minutes!! Pretty impressive non?
Now if only I can find the time to get my Christmas shopping done.
