Today has gone better than yesterday. I’ve had my ups, I’ve had my downs – but you know what, it’s ok. I’m sure tonight will be interesting. Trying to guide Max and Derek though their grieving should be different, but we can handle it.
Saturday – we will have a memorial service for Tiger. It’s a small service planned for our back 40… (behind the fence). We will bury his collar and remember him a little bit. All are invited… we will not be providing seating or anything fancy, dress is as you are 😉 You know – come to think of it … Tiger was always happiest IN the backyard – I’m going to do it inside the fence. There was nothing as funny as seeing a 20 pound cat with his belly swinging side to side running through tall grass thinking his clawless self was some sort of jungle cat! Yes – Saturday, we will remember our favorite fat cat!
I was reminded, internally, how good a “drug” working out can be. I don’t know all the exact details – but I know that when you work out, specifically when you work out hard, you release a lot of chemicals into your brain. Endorphins are part of that chemical cocktail. All of the stuff releases into your mellon and makes your brain work better, which makes you feel better! I had a good workout today. Not my hardest, fastest, longest… just a good session on the Eliptical machine.
Tomorrow will be running – most likely. I’m enjoying the running as long as I do it every other day. I’m just too big to slam down on my body over and over again. I need a break. I’m pondering trying to re-start MaxFit on Monday. I really like that program, I just found the doctor to be pretty much a loser. He may be the greatest in the world, but if you wont reply to emails sent directly to you – you are a loser.
Tomorrow – I weigh in. Things are going well on that front – I’ve got a long way to go – but I’m ahead of the past couple of years (by a good margin). I’d like to be a lot lighter for the PeachTree… That will help me pull my extra 5 minutes off the top!
