Then I remembered.
This time last year, actually this week last year, my husband Dennis was in the Neuro ICU at a Toronto hospital recovering from brain surgery to clip two brain aneurysms. He was in a drug-induced coma and we were facing the prospect of losing him.
This week, he is about 95% recovered and we are blessed.
Compared to that - this week was a breeze. That week, that event; that was the worst experience I have ever had in my 42 years. This past week was a pothole in the road of life, and not a very big one at that.
Since I spent most of last week feeling like I had no control over many things - I decided to control what I could. I could control what I put into my mouth and I could control how much I exercise, I had set a goal of 20km for this week and to walk 7/7 days.
With some help from two great women in my life, Shelley and Tina, and her lovely dog, Sadie and Den - I hit the 20km mark today - right on time.
And with the help of Tiffany and all my other blogger friends, I was encouraged to keep going when I thought I didn't want to anymore. You guys all rock!!
I didn't do 7/7 days but I am
Next week's exercise goal is to move for 7 hours. I'm not setting a distance because I may not walk the entire time, I may choose to do something else - but I will move for 7 hours next week. I'll let you know how I do! This is going to be a busy week for me at work, we are processing month end billing - but I am going to get out at lunch time and walk and I am going to pack my lunch/snacks the night before. If I don't do it the night before, it doesn't get done at all.
These things I can (and will) control.
What is in your control this week to help you to reach your goals?

P.S. Crys - I used LiveWriter to design yesterday's post. The photos and text are actually in the cells of a table, then I turned off the table borders. I tried emailing you but the address didn't seem to work and for some reason, I couldn't leave a comment on your blog, it kept refreshing the page when I hit post.
