A Good Week gone Bad
Thursday, November 15, 2012
I weighed in yesterday and the scale said I gained 3 lbs. I know that is not the most it could have been and I have been trying to keep a good attitude, but sometimes it is so hard to do that. I am determined to go for a walk with the dog tonight, volunteer on Saturday and do some yoga either Friday, Sunday or both. I am also determined to eat much healthier than I did while my parents were here.
The ironic thing is that my mom is always commenting on how she needs to lose weight (she really does not) and needs to stay away from whatever Dr. Oz said this week, but while she was here every night was. We should get some DQ or a cupcake or got out to eat. I tried not to, but they are only here every few months. When I suggest we should go to the park or for a walk it would be shot down. It is frustrating to have this occur, especially when my mom is the one telling me I should lose the weight. It is also frustrating because for the past 2 years I have been into eating as much whole, unprocessed food and non-artificial stuff as possible and she has poo-pooed the idea. she happened to catch a Dr. Oz episode that said don't eat margarine, artificial sweeteners etc and now she wants to make sure she doesn't- but doesn't cut the rest of the processed food out. This is particularly important for me for the kids. I try to make my own baby food and feed T what we are eating,made as much by me or local producers as possible. Then my mom feeds T lunchables and canned stuff. I know it is good that she is aware but it is frustrating.
