This is one of the longest weeks. Every part of my life is busting at the seams. We have double our patient load. (which is not good at a cancer care center) Bino had bowling tryouts for school. Hooch had extra practice for her first cheer competition. Hubby was working long hours. I had my new training schedule. I felt like that I was meeting myself coming and going.

A follow-up to the Chicago marathon and the runner who died. In an investigation, it has been shown he collapse and it took 30 minutes for an ambulance to get to him. The crew that arrived was from the suburb and did not know there was a hospital 6 blocks away and headed a different direction. It also seems he still did have a heartbeat despite early reports. If you are intersted go to CBS 2 Chicago and look in the video library for a report. Again , I ask are these races getting too big to be safe?

Waddling into the weekend....

It has been a crazy busy week.

Monday was busy front to back. I was lucky to get my 1 hour workout in with Team WeightLoss. I did weigh in and I am now at a 7 lb. weight loss. Woohoo! I feel like I have lost mainly in my waist line.

Tuesday was a day off work for R & R . That stands for reflect and rejuvenate. About 15 employees spent the day at a retreat. It was wonderful. I had an opportunity to go for a long walk in the woods. The leaves were awesome. The day ended at swim class where I took a few steps back to freestyle basics and got rid of my noseclip. Coach was impressed.
I did watch Biggest Loser. Can you believe it? A weight gain of 17 lb. in one week. He purposely did it to throw the game. He should have been kicked off.

Today back to work and we are still overwhelmed by new patients. How sad is that. I did make it to TEAM tonight. We met with the nutrtionist and went ove labels and how they fit in to our diet. We had a 30 min treamill workout.

As always, the plan and the actual vary. Yesterday that happened to me. The plan was to bike then swim. It all started good on the bike except for the 20 mph headwind on the out part. But what came next was 3 games of bowling with Bino. He had tryouts for the HS team and wanted to get some practice before the first day. After that came the swim, which was 30 min. in the pool. I wonder if they could make that a triathlon- Bike, Bowl and Swim. It was alot of fun and a nice break from the ususal.

Waddling into a new week.................
