So much has been happening in my life, sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed by it all. Yes, I have gained weight this past three weeks. I feel the worst for it. Now my plan is to get back on track.
I have review my Flat Belly Diet GuideBook and have hopes of making better choices with much healthier foods. I plan to add a little more exercise to my daily routine. Yes, I am back to redesigning my daily routine.
My eldest son was diagnosed with a severely deteriorating liver and is process of more testing to determine what if any treatments might be undertaken. He is currently homeless and we took our van to safe-parking allowing him to be out of the weather. He is a bit taken back as he stopped drinking and doing drugs over ten years ago, cold turkey. However, his efforts to kill himself with drugs and drinking have come full circle and he is facing the consequences of his bad choices. He stills trys to play the blame game...it is everyone's fault but his own. I don't buy it. I watched and lived all that he did to himself back then. I just hope his younger brother wakes up before it is too late for him. Still, my heart is full of sorrow!
I have worked with enough homeless people to know that good choices are not always easy to make, and bad choices reign supreme at keeping a person locked up in their own private hell.
Sounds a whole lot like Food Addictions and that aftermath, also.
I am as determined as ever. I will take and keep my weight down to a healthier level. New starts, re-starts, and re-determination are always available. I just want to eat and be healthy.
As for ShirleyAnn, her family will be moving towards the same area as we are looking to relocate in,...so we will get to visit much more often. It affords ShirleyAnn to be followed by the same team of Doctors and staff who did her surgeries at Seattle's Children's Hospital. The family will be closer and that will keep some of their expenses down. Also, Shirley's Dad has found a good job that he starts on the first of March. He had to help at home, being on hand for emergencies when ShirleyAnn was so ill. Yes! I am still wearing RED everyday in February for children, like ShirleyAnn, who have Chronic Heart Conditions.
I am surviving well, despite the tumult circling around and about me. Keeping busy as is my usual.
