Ottawa

The drive to Ottawa was uneventful. Nice blue sky, clear road.

The service for my BFF’s father was short and very emotional. I believe he will be cremated and we will return in the spring to bury his ashes with his late wife.

Driving in Ottawa after the service … not so much.

I did manage to see one of my cousins and hang out for a few before returning home. Once I got out of Ottawa the drive home was fine.

Taking the day off in a short week made it painful to return to work. Although I did spend most of Thursday thinking it was Monday. 🙂

I am still working out every day. Nothing too strenuous yet as I am smarter this time around and am aiming for slow and steady results. I am really trying for a lifestyle shift. On the weekends I would like to do a longer workout since I should have the time to pause multiple times. 😉

Stepped on the scale on Monday …. If I didn’t know before that I have put on weight I definitely know now! O_o

I feel very obsessed with this new revelation and have been getting up in the morning to workout before going into the office. Given that I go to work for 7:30 am, this is no easy feat. Nothing like feeling badly about yourself to motivate you to get up and moving. 🙂

Today I am going to make the 4 hour drive to Ottawa to attend the funeral of my BFF’s father. He passed away last week after a long battle with cancer. *cancer sucks* My BFF and her father only recently attempted to have a relationship but I feel like it was too little too late. She is being pressured to speak at the service and her eulogy was filled with bitterness. 😦 It has since been edited.

The funeral is at 3 pm and afterwards I will be driving back to Toronto. Madness, I know. But I didn’t want to take too many days off for this. I am hoping that my cousin who lives in Ottawa will be home before I leave so I can see her for a quick minute.
