Well, I have a downer of a Friday Fitness post for y’all this week. As some of you know, my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer back in July and I was summoned home last week to be with him during his last days. We lost him on Sunday evening. It’s been a really crappy December, y’all.
Between my dad and travel and The Boy’s hectic work schedule, I’ve completely fallen apart and off the fitness bandwagon. I’m in rural Alaska and my access to a gym is limited so I haven’t worked out at all since Tuesday the 6th. And, I swear, I’ve eaten more carbs in the last two weeks that I have in the whole year. I frankly, m’dear? I don’t give a damn.

I needed to be with my family. I needed to not stress out about every little thing that went in my mouth. I needed to just sit on my butt and introduce my family to the wonder known as Pinterest. I needed to climb up into my dad’s bed and lay next to him holding his hand. I needed to bake cookies with my great-niece and teach my nephew how to make mashed potatoes. I needed a fitness break.

I’m okay with it (and weirdly, haven’t seemed to really gain too much [oh, I know I have but my clothes are still fitting just fine] so that’s good). I hope to be back on fitness track next week. Maybe working out and eating right but if I can just do one or the other with some regularity – I’ll be happy. Until then, bug me on Twitter, Facebook, check out my Fitness board on Pinterest, and be my friend on My Fitness Pal (I’m akbuilt – invite me to be your friend and I’ll add you to my group!). Thanks for everything, y'all. I do appreciate every little bit.
