Healthier Living Challenge: Week 17


Week 17 of my healthier living journey was a rough one for me.  While on our trip to Montana, I got a call that my dad had a heart attack and was in the hospital.  He ended up have a stint put in to his clogged aorta last Monday.

In the process we found out that he has a 6 cm aneurysm in his abdomen.  So needless to say it was a very hard week. 

Plus, the trip to Montana brought back a lot of the bad feelings that I thought I had started to get over.  Feelings of resentment, anger, loneliness, frustration...

I spent much of week dealing with those feelings and my therapy session last Friday helped quite a bit.

Despite all of the upheaval going on in my life, I managed to accomplish all of my goals for week 17, except my water in take goal.  I missed that just one day, which isn't too bad.

For week 18, I am sticking to similar goals as week 17.  I think if I can make these goals daily routine, I can start making varied goals because these ones will just automatically be a part of my daily life!  And wouldn't that be fantastic!

So until next time, Onward and Upward!

Goals for Week 18: 4/30-5/7/2017
1) Leg Side Lunges daily
2) Drink 60 oz of water daily
3) Read 30 mins. min. daily
4) Plug May Specials and hold a successful Ericson Family fundraiser this weekend
