Today marks 4 weeks since I got serious about tracking, exercising, and visiting this site. I managed to kose another half pound this week. It may be slow, but the numbers on the scale are going in the right direction, so I am satisfied.
Unfortunately, I seem to have picked up some sort of stomach bug and am feeling really yucky. On the positive side, I can't seem to eat much of anything, so maybe that will help with weight loss - though i sure don't want to do it this way! Besides, in my past experience, anything i lose while sick comes right back.
Well, time for me to do something constructive, though I really feel like going to sleep.

Well, i got home at about 3 p.m. after pending several days in NY helping my parents get settled after my Mom came home from a rehab facility (at her insistence, not at doctor's recommendation) and getting an aide in place to help them at home. Left NY yesterday afternoon, got home today, andby 5:30 p.m. got a call from the aide that an ambulance had been called because my mother was having trouble breathing. I (and my sister) feel like we are living a nightmare. My Mom really should be in a nursing facility at this point, but she won't agree and my Dad, who is also failing, doesn't want to cross her. I am distraught and it hasn't done much for my eating patterns! On top of that i seem to have vcaught some kind of bug while away and I am feeling ill - both physically and mentally. Sorry to be such a whiner - just need to rant and vent! Maybe tomorrow will be a better day!

This is getting silly - maybe I need to change my heading to Week Whatever......
The car is packed, I am wearing layers, and we are ready to head off to Queens, NY, though tonight we will stay in Newton, MA. Not sure if I will be able to post any blogs while away. We packed lunch for today, but will have to play dinner by ear, since my sister-in-law will be cooking- and she is a really good cook! Moderation will have to be the operational word!

This morning I felt frustrated when I weighed myself - it is my weigh-in day and I weigh the same as last week. Now, though, I have recognized that although there was no loss, there also was no gain - and that is a good thing! We are leaving tomorrow to travel to NY to help get some things in place to support my elderly parents. I know it will be difficult for me to plan my meals, but I will try my darnedest to keep things in control and maybe next week I will see a downward dip on the scale - or maybe just stay the same, which might be a more realistic goal. I will try to check in a sparkpeople using my phone app since I don't know if I will have access to a computer while I am away. Wish me luck!!!

Well, I improved the day and stayed within my calorie limits today. I spent the entire day inside because of the below zero temperatures - baked two loaves of bread using a new recipe and accomplished some other indoor tasks. Tomorrow I will have to go out to do a bunch of errands that MUST be done, whether the temperatures are frigid or not. But now, I can think about being warm under the covers overnight - I am really very tired! Good night all!
