Wow 2 months of going backwards!

I managed to go on my cruise and not only maintain but lose a pound. The next two weeks after the cruise I did well. That was until my mother who is 81 years old fell and laid in the hall for 31 hours. My life seemed turned upside down from that point on. It was my first day back at work( I teach). I stayed with her for a week and my siblings and I started remodeling her home to make it easier for her to get around. In the mist of that we had to move out of the home we rented. We had not closed on our HUD home yet so we lived in a hotel for 2 weeks. We packed all of our belongings into a PODS and lived out of suitcases. We then closed on our home it took another week to get all of the inspections done so that all of the utilities could be turned on. Then the first thing we did was take down a wall to make 2 bedrooms into one. A week after that my husband was ill and took a week off of work. The first time that had ever happened. Now the room is being worked on again, my mom is stronger that before the fall. It is time I get back to taking care of me! I just found the scale today ( there is still a lot to be unpacked). I plan on finding out just how much weight I gained back tomorrow morning and begin eating healthy again. I forgot to say up until last weekend we did not have a refrigerator. These really are not excuses just reality! I let my life get in the way of my goals! Being healthy and taking care of myself. Tomorrow I begin again! Thanks for letting me ramble
