I've had a very interesting three weeks as I'm away from home and spending my days helping with a new grand child. I have one more week here with my son and family. I had hoped this could be a sort of spa vacation with lots of exercise and lots of healthy foods and good choices in other areas as well. Well, a week before leaving home I was hit with double vision from my multiple sclerosis. that development has kept me from doing some of the projects I'd hoped to work on here. However, I've been able to spend time in this website and that has been an encouragement. I've heaten pretty healthy and tried to record all I've eaten. I've not always done the amount of exercise I've hoped to do or at the intensity I would have liked, but still I've done more here than I was doing at home. Sleep was another issue. I'm still not getting as much sleep as I would like, but some nights are pretty good now. So, the spa vacation has had its ups and downs. One of the big downs is that there isn't a scale here so I'm not able to check to see if I'm losing weight. Next week I'll be able to check that out when I get home. I pray I will have lost a few pounds, but perhaps just not gaining would be a small victory. Meanwhile, I have this one last week to make a difference. My biggest fear is that if've Ive not lost, I might give up the fight once again. That would be the least healthy thing I could do.
