Well today was an interesting day......
Woke up feeling pretty good did my normal coffee/computer (in which I return my emails) wake up routine and found myself shortly after playing "rescue".
I step outside to let the dog out to do his business and I heard a faint painful cry for help after hearing it a second time I knew someone was in trouble. Came back inside put on my boots and took my daughter upstairs and put her in her crib so I could know she was safe while I ventured out to see what was going on.
After walking to the house 2 doors down sure enough I discovered an elderly woman, I am guessing in her late 70's early 80's laying on the ground face bloodied up and she was in pain from obviously taking a nasty fall. After realizing she was really in bad shape (thinking she snapped her neck pretty good)... I went into her house grabbed a few blankets to cover her up and try to get her warm, after all there is a foot of snow on the ground and snow still coming down. I then called 911 and HOORAY in less than 5 min the paramedics arrived. I asked her where her house key was so that i could lock her house up for her and also grabbed her wallet and phone (which was dead) and gave it all to the EMT so she would have it. They got her all strapped up and loaded into the ambulance, with the only trouble being carrying her out through the backyard as the house was not in any shape to get a gurney through there,
I am hoping she is ok and safe and have to admit that I felt really bad that there was seemingly no family or anyone that i could call for her and let them know what was going on. So far she doesn't seem to be back home and still praying she is doing ok.
It was a rush and also a little wake up call that you never really know who your neighbors are unless you actually take the time to get to know them. I feel the need to continue to help her in some way..... she obviously doesn't have many visitors and isn't in the best of shape. There were O2 tanks all over as well as prescription bottles all over the place and she is an obvious hoarder!!! I have seen the stuff on TV but never in real life. There was literally one tiny path that went through the house and that was it the rest was COVERED in STUFF!!!
Any who..... after all the morning excitement I did the normal exciting routine of cleaning the house....you know Laundry, Dishes, Kitchen, Sweeping, Vacuuming, Making the bed, etc.
I then worked on a few orders and got them ready for shipment, and completed a few more products that are new and gotta get them posted up on the site.
No workout for me today but plan on doing one tomorrow. My goal is to get at least 3 full workout days a week in.
Other than that not a real productive day...but hey my excuse is its Monday and its my recover day from the weekends!!! ;)
For the remainder of the week my "to do" list IS pretty extensive and I want it all done by Thurs since Friday is my Bday and I want that day and the weekend to be free to do whatever (which honestly wont be much) and still feel good about what all I accomplished for the week.
Something I have always done and find that it really can make you feel great as a person is make a list and always have it handy and write down things you wanna do and/or get accomplished.....once you do cross it off!! You will find that it gets exciting to have that list and see everything crossed off after each week, it really is a great motivator and reminder of what you DID do and how amazing you can be, instead of always focusing on the things you didn't do or time you wasted.
AS far as my dieting goes...its going good, I have not had any sweets in a week and feel pretty good about it! Also I lost a whole 2 lbs LOL whoo hoo.... no its not really a lot but if I can lose 2 lbs a week all the time I will def be at my goal weight by spring!!! ;)
2 down 18 to go!!!! Oh man!!!
So I guess in conclusion of this day.... I am not proud that I didn't get more done.... but am very proud that i was able to save a life today so I guess that counts for something and makes me feel pretty good for sure :)
See you guys again soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love and Light )O(
