:( = Cheesecake & Cupcakes and Any Other Kind of Cake...

Monday, March 28, 2011

Since I got my Bodybugg for Christmas, I have been doing pretty good with losing weight. Not as much as I would like, but it's been steady...

Then 2 weeks ago my Dad fell down the attic stairs.

He was getting some luggage down while no one was home, and Mom found him at the bottom of the stairs when she came home for lunch. He hurt his head pretty badly and has been in the hospital all this time. He is still sleeping a lot and can't really communicate with us. He's very weak. The doctors can't give us a real answer because they just don't know what is going to happen. Luckily, Dad was in great shape (ran 5 miles almost every day), and there are no broken bones. He is otherwise healthy.

So between the shock of his accident, being worried about what the future holds, "missing" Dad a lot and helping Mom celebrate their Anniversary, we have all gained some weight!

I've eaten more cheesecake in the last two weeks than in my whole life. On their anniversary last Tuesday, 5 of us shared a 10 cupcake (do the math, that is 2 cupcakes each). The hospital is on an island that is full of tourist trap, overpriced, unhealthy restaurants. I have gained back about 5 pounds of what I had lost.

I know I need to focus on family right now, so I am doing that. It is going to be the little victories that matter for now.

I'm proud to say that at the Birthday celebration at work today, I turned down cupcakes! I just got back home from running 3 miles!

Just trying to take things one day at a time...
