Day #3 of Week 4 of 13!!!

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I got up and did the elliptical at 7 AM!!! Woo-Hoo!!! Woo-Hoo!!

I am having the hotflashes, etc. BUT... I am still doing OK.

Intense weekend this last week. It was pretty FULL!! The young adults in my life are driving me nuts, but I have to love them! (They're the offspring, you know!)

I really don't have much else to say... I'm going to an intense 3-day women's retreat this weekend on Thursday night! I sort of have a few anxiety things about going there:

1. I've been depressed. I don't like being around a bunch of women when I am stressed and overwhelmed.
2. I don't want to overeat AT ALL!! --I've heard they will have a bunch of sugary things there.
3. I want to exercise. --It's supposed to rain all weekend and we're going up in them there mountains!!
4. I have been feeling really vulnerable and the intensity of this retreat is pretty well-known. I don't want to be more vulnerable.... I just don't... (Control freak, I know!!)

Thanks for listening!

    Take along a few healthy snacks (apples, bananas, grapes and celery with peanut butter) just in case, and to make a point to the folks who run it, that women's health shouldn't be ignored.

    You are the kind of person EVERYONE would want to know, so get out there and allow folks to get that opportunity. I'll bet you come back with AT LEAST one phone number or e-mail address of someone you connect with.

    New friends= PRICELESS!

    If it's a well-known retreat, there must be something that keeps people coming back. I bet you will end up getting a lot out of it. And if nothing else, just get up, stand on the side of the room, and walk in place as you listen. Seriously! It's WAY better than nothing and will help keep you in control!
