Day 32. (A date with cheesecake.)

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I kept my numbers good enough today that I was able to easily accommodate half a slice of Oreo Cheesecake - and it was delicious. I don't do the whole "cheat day" thing, or "treating myself," I just work with portion control and sticking to the numbers. I guess we'll see if that plan works even if it's not the healthiest thing in the world in those numbers!

Our special needs son has had a couple of more violent outbursts that have resulted in what we believe is a pinched nerve in my back. I've been having a few leg and back spasms, so I've had to readjusted my workouts and I had to skip a "real" walk yesterday and today. I still walked inside, though. I don't want to fall out of the habit. Tomorrow I plan on trying to get back out in the woods after we take the boys out for haircuts and I get the week's shopping out of the way.

My cousin passed away this morning. I hadn't seen him in many, many years, and had only seen him a handful of times prior to that, so I'd never be so selfish as to pretend it has really caused me great personal pain - but I do feel just terrible for his wife, children, and grandchildren. He and his wife had been married for 38 years, together since their teen years. That's a long time to never be away from someone and then go to bed without them one night. I've said a lot of prayers for them during his long illness. Tonight I pray for acceptance, guidance, peace, comfort, and rest for his wife.

Whenever anyone I know passes, I am RE-reminded to never take a moment for granted or send time focusing in what is 'wrong' with life. I've been incredibly Blessed and it would be a shame to waste any of my life forgetting that.

    My son and hubby would love that cheesecake. LOL.

I hope your back is okay soon.

I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. I sent a prayer for the family. I have lost many loved ones. You are honoring his memory by living every day to the fullest.

    emoticon Though you apparently had not been close to your cousin, my Prayers are with you and with his family. I am finding the older I get, the more even distant family and friends losses have affected me. Maybe it is just part of getting older and facing our own mortality. No matter I will keep all in my prayers.
