Back to work began August 1st. Stress began to intensify, not only did we begin the school year, but we (Erik and I) started a new Home Care service at the end of July and we weren't used to them.. School actually started August 8th. At about the same time something was developing on my back and I didn't know that it would grow-nor could I see it. By my B'day it was already a concerning texture and size, not only that it was under my bra band. I scheduled an appointment with my doctor for the earliest appt (8/31) On 8/24 my sister Véronique arrived with her son, she's the one with the Gleal Cell brain tumor. Later that day her daughter arrived, no my office-computer zone was occupied and being used as a bedroom. My sister and her son left 8/29 and my niece left 9/2 but my two cousins from Belgium came on 9/1-they left the evening of the 10th. By this time I'd been away from my computer for some time, when the cousins were here we ate out a lot, so that they could experience a variety of foods, including Burger King. They also had Taco Bell and Chick fil A, but on their own. By this time I had gained 5 pounds and had not been logging foods or water regularly. There is no time at work, especially when I was trying not to bring papers home when I had company.
Today would have been my husband's 63rd birthday, and I'm struggling with his being gone-again, with Erik's slower improvement and my being behind at work, at spark peoples and with house cleaning.
Now I'm 7 pounds heavier, gained a few inches and am off my stride for logging foods and the minimal exercise I've maintained. I'm discouraged, disgruntled and disheartened. I had re-set my goal for 138 in early October, and now I'm further from it than a month ago-154 this morning.
My posted goals had been ignored for a month now. I need to get back on track-TODAY!
