What a week last week! I was so busy that it was nice to keep my mind off of IF and the recent miscarriage... in fact, I feel like there must be an influx of people praying for me because I've felt very shielded by my sadness.
Either that or I am just really busy and helps to have other things to focus on such as:
1. Our annual company event - it was so great! I worked so incredibly hard last week. We had about 75 employees come (about 1/2 from other locations/offices) for a day of team building activities in a hotel conference room & then about 40 people's significant others came for an evening bowling event. So, so fun. And so, so exhausting. But... I didn't have time to sleep this weekend because I was moving onto:
2. Furnishing a room for a room in a safe house for sex traf.ficking survivors. My church works with Courtney's House. The founder herself is a survivor of sex traf.ficking and is now giving her life back to helping others get off the streets. Did you know that the entry point into 'prostitution' is 12 years old? TWELVE years old! Unbelievable. Breaks my heart. But makes me so much more motivated to do something to help. We got some great furniture from craigs.list - and get this - after the person found out what we were doing with the furniture, they gave it to us for free!! And went to Target to really outfit this place right. I'll post pics once we're done with it in a couple more weeks. So exciting!
3. Operation: Get My Body Back - Week 1. Didn't do great with it last week. Tried to make good choices. I started off strong by trying to exercise, twice in one day even, but I actually kept bleeding all week still from the miscarriage, so decided to start off slower. And with the company event, I only wrote down what I ate until Wed...
4. Operation: Get My Body Back - Week 2. I'm going to try to do better this week though I'm still unsure of exercise. I'm still exhausted. I'll give it a couple of days. Still biking to work though! AND I will write down everything I eat this week. I stocked the fridge with strawberries, peaches, raspberries, cherries & apples along with lots of salad fixings and veggie burgers! I'm also going to go weigh in this week, which I haven't done in 6 weeks. I'm a bit scared but it's the right thing to do! :)
I've been very motivated & inspired by your comments on exercise & weight loss too, so keep 'em coming!!! How'd you do this past week and what are your intentions for this week?
