My daughter broke her foot on Saturday. She realized that she could not take care of a rambunctious (almost) three year old while on crutches. They have moved in with us for a while so we can help out. I have been cooking family meals and have tried to stay with healthy meals. It is not easy when I eat mostly a plant based diet. Today I made spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread. I had salad because no one else was eating it. That was good for me.
My daughter and hubby both have a sweet tooth so I got some goodies from Publix bakery for dessert and told myself that I would eat fruit. My precious little granddaughter picked a brownie with frosting topped with chocolate. She ate one bite and decided that she did not want it. I immediately took that thing without even thinking and finished it off. Ugh!
I have got to be more aware of what I am doing. Not sure how long they will stay with us.
My daughter goes back to the doctor tomorrow so they can discuss if she needs surgery or not.
Lord, I sure hope not! I will be having a hysterectomy on March 11th and we cannot both be recuperating at the same time. My poor hubby will have to call in some reinforcements. He cannot handle it on his own. LOL!
I am aware that just because I cook for hubby, daughter and granddaughter I have to stay true to my dietary ways and focus on me. I have already told hubby that I will prepare some dinners in advance of having my surgery and freeze them so he will not have to come up with ideas all on his own. When he is left to decide on food we eat it is usually sandwiches, soup, cereal, etc. (easy peasy) or fast food, take out. I am not a fast food person at all so I do not want to leave it up to him after my surgery. I have a couple of weeks to decide what kind of foods that I think I will want after surgery and make some preparations.
My sister that lives in Chicago has offered to come stay with us after my surgery to help out and the more I think about it...I just might be giving her a call and tell her to make plans. She is very health conscious and a good cook.
Ok, enough rambling. I just worry about things sometimes before I even need to. LOL!
