missing in action .......

Oops its been 3 weeks since my last post. I am still here don't worry. I've had a bit of a turbulent couple of weeks starting off my with dad being rushed back into hospital. He had a suspected heart attack in October last year and has been on medication to try and sort him out, unfortunately he had another funny turn 3 weeks ago. After some more tests he was told he had extensively blocked arteries and would need to have a stent put in to clear/open them up.
I am pleased to say that he had the operation yesterday but he had to have 3 stents put in as 3 arteries were blocked. Slightly worrying considering you only have something like 4 arteries going in and out of your heart to start with !!! No wonder he was poorly.

So I've been worried about my dad's health which has taken it's toll on my eating regime and I know my weight has gone up and down for the last couple of weeks. Not sure what my weight is this week as the batteries have gone in the weighing scales !!!!

I fear that if I don't get back on track that I may lose my motivation altogether, despite my dad's health scare being the perfect kick I really need I just don't seem bothered which worries me more than anything !! It also doesn't help that I am still hindered with my vertigo as I cannot get any exercise done without feeling worse which although I should carry on and push myself I don't like then spending the rest of the week stuck in bed.

Me thinks me needs to get this weekend out of the way then make a fresh start on Monday. It's only 7 weeks till my birthday so I've got that to aim for.
