Whew! What a Week!

I have been so busy this week. Finally got a sec to sit down and catch up on reading everyones blogs. I call that my therapy.

I’ll start with last Saturday. I worked then as soon as I got off went shopping for a new outfit. I went out with some good friends that I met through my lapband doctors office. Valerie is the closest friend in that group. I just love her to death. She has welcomed me in with open arms to her and her family. I stayed the night with her then on Sunday we spent the day at the pool. She has a five year old that is precious.
I am off work on Sunday- Tuesday, so usually I make all my appointments on Monday as my busy day. I had my lovely gyno appointment then I work out with Deb my trainer, then I had my last small group counseling. I have been having a hard week dealing with Kristie the counselor at my doc’s office leaving the practice for a personal reason. Which I am so happy for her, but also I am being so selfish cause I don’t want her to go. I have been involved in small group counseling with her on Mondays since Oct. We had people come and go out of our group until it finally just ended up being me, Val, and Angie. I have grown to love these women. Kristie was the first person in my life to ever challenge me. Over the past 7-8 months. I have opened up to them ladies like I never have before. I have changed the way I view life, and react to it. I was often this week saying what am I gonna do with out her, but then I sit back and thank, Gail you did this.. not any of them. I did it. I am becoming a person I knew I always was, just scared to open up.
I ended Monday night with Zumba. I am officially addicted to it!
On Tuesday I went with some friends of mine to Summer Waves water park in Bruinswick, Ga about an hour north of me. I took Joey my nephew. He’s my heart!
When I got home I got ready, and went to the hospital to visit my good friends Jeremy and Sarina to welcome their precious beautiful baby girl into the world.

Wednesday came along it was the start to my work week. Always a pleasure :)

After work, I work out with Deb then straight to Zumba.

Thursday its work then support group with my dr’s office. Kristie was there, so we got to say goodbye. It was a very sad and emotional time for me. I am very, very happy for her, and I know she will come back, and I have access to her via email, but its just the thought that I spend two- three days a week at that office, and she wont be there.

Friday its work then I went out to dinner and a movie with Josh one of my closest friends.

Now its Saturday, and here I sit at work, and its finally my Friday. After work I am headed to my friend Stephanie’s we are gonna start the couch to 5K program. I wanna learn how to run a whole 5k. I have walked at a fast pace two of them. I have another one coming up next Saturday, but in November I am doing one and would love to run the whole thing.

What a week. I am trying to keep myself busy, and I think this week is proof that I'm doing that.
I’ll close with Happy Father’s Day tomorrow to my wonderful Daddy. I am so blessed to have a Father like I do. He is amazing. I love him so much!!!!
