This has been a rough week. We have been at the customer all week and it has been exhausting. My food has been spot on. I have packed everyday and it’s been great. It’s nice to have my food ready so that I can just eat. I have been skipping my morning/additional cardio this week due to long work hours. I have been getting to the customer early and not getting to train during my lunch. So, I have had to get all my training in during the evening. Adding 30 minutes on feels like torture at that point. I feel that rest is a higher priority this week. Hopefully, next week will be better. I know we will have to be here a little, but hopefully not like this week.
Another rough thing…I got a call Wednesday during work from my father. My grandmother had a stroke and is in ICU. She is stable, but there is some permanent damage. She can comprehend, but her speech is impaired. We will know more this weekend. I have to admit that when I saw a call from him during the workday, I almost had a panic attack. I knew something was wrong. I am thankful she is doing well and I really hate that I am so far away from her right now.
I am heading to Texas for a week to train with a customer and visit my family. I will definitely be getting some grandparent time.
A couple of awesome things though….
1. I am now sleeping on a sweet new bed. It’s a king and soooo comfy. It is a bit firmer than I am used to, so I am still adjusting. Fantastic sleep and great recovery is so close. My squat is seriously going to increase several pounds!
2. My boss wants me to handle a new project that we are launching and I am quite excited about it. I feel as though I will do well with it. More to come….
