Will Eating Healthy Keep Me from Turning into a Turnip?


Monday, June 17, 2013

An odd question to be sure, but one that's on my mind.

I come from a family with horrible eating patterns who think exercise is reaching for the remote. So, heart disease and type 2 diabetes are prevalent.

I've always joked that I was a mixup in the hospital, since I like healthy food and am an endorphin junkie.

So, why the blog?

Despite having 9 siblings, I seem to be the one who deals with things for my mum. Yesterday, when we were on the phone, she mentioned she needed someone to repair her washing machine. When I asked what was wrong, she said she tried to open the door and it wouldn't respond, so she use a hammer to pry it open, flooding the floor and breaking the lock.

So, of course, the door no longer works.

Just spent the better part of the morning dealing with repair people to get someone who will go there and deal with this later in the week. I rang mum and told her, only to have her tell me she doesn't want him to call her before noon.

I don't want to morph into this. Will eating healthy rather than processed foods keep me from destroying my brain cells?

    Carrie, I somehow doubt that you'll ever get that way.

And don't worry. if you do, I'll let you know!

    I wish it was that easy. Maybe do sudoku?
