When Life Gets In The Way...
I see so many people disappear from SparkPeople that it makes me want to cry. I know, I have heard, "Life Got in the way" of my diet.
And when my Dad went onto dialysis and Ray went into the hospital on the same day, I was saying the same thing. "I have too much on my plate to try to watch what goes into my mouth right now. I will get back on track when Ray gets out of the hospital."
But you know what? Life waits for no one! And I decided right after I had said that, that I have worked too hard to reach the point I am at to throw it away due to "life getting in the way." So on the way home from the hospital I stopped at the grocery and loaded up on veggies. And I do mean loaded up - I bought 20 packages of vegetables!
Next day when I came home from the hospital I realized I was too tired to cook the veggies and almost took the easy way out. Then I learned to cook up several bags of veggies ahead of time and leave them in the fridge and ate *leftovers* until I had finished all I had cooked.
That was a month ago and I am still losing weight while taking Dad to dialysis and Ray to physical therapy.
I share this info only because when "life got in the way," I shoved it aside and made my own way in my life!
And you can too!!
