I spent the weekend with my mom and dad. We celebrated their 85th birthdays. Dad and I were able to get mom out of the nursing home on Friday and Saturday. Today she did not feel well enough to go to church. At least we were able to spend some good quality time together. I don't know when I will be able to get to visit them again. 200 miles gets pretty far during the winter. Whenever I leave them I know it will possibly be the last time I see one of them.

I logged my food this weekend even though I did not worry about my choices. Hubby and I went to the grocery store right after I got back home. I stocked up on frozen entrees that I will eat for breakfast and dinner. At work I will eat soup and whole grain bread for lunch unless there is a healthy entree that catches my eye. This week I will focus on eating healthy and exercising. I am hoping that exercising will be easier now that I got my hip injected. We'll see first thing in the morning!

    Glad you were able to spend some quality time with your parents. We spent almost every weekend taking the 2 hour trip to visit my mother in law in the year before she passed. We were happy that we had done it and didn't have to cope with any regrets.

    You will never regret seeing them as often as possible towards the end of their lives.
Hope the injection (steroid?) helps.

    Hope your hip is feeling better! I didn't do so well eating this weekend either. But I tracked what I could remember, and now I just do better this week.

    I hope the weather will allow you a visit for the holidays. I really know how hard it is for you. My Dad just had to go to a nursing home since we moved to Florida in April. West Virginia is SUCH a long drive. When I left there after a visit last month, I had a very heavy feeling because like you, I just don't know when (or if) I will see him again.
Hugs and prayers!

    Glad you had this time with your parents!
Glad you tracked... I missed doing it this weekend... no computer Thur-Sat (I know, I could write it down... poor excuse) and had all three grandkids from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon...

Glad you got the knee injection! Hope it's feeling better and you're able to exercise this week... I need to, as well. I can definitely feel the difference in my pain and agility levels due to lack of exercise... yuck! I hate being back here again... except that I carry 44 lbs less now... ANYWAY, enough whining on my part!

Have a great healthy eating and exercising week!!!

    What a treat to have both your parents to celebrate with together.
