What a Week

Thursday, July 11, 2013

I'm struggling with tracking my food. I am managing to get a little exercise. I wish I had the heart to leave my dog behind because he has to sniff everything along the way, although sometimes he loves to run. It doesn't work so well on the leash. I want to get on my bike and go for as long as I want. My pool is a great stress buster and fabulous exercise too.

I had a perplexing week. My mother's sister was supposed to come this morning to visit me for four days. Then she called yesterday, saying that their other sister was dying, so she went to be by her. This morning, I got the call that she had died. Now I have a sobbing mom with Alzheimer's and an aunt who is sobbing over the phone too. And a funeral to attend several hours away. It's one of those things I have to expect at this point in my life. When I was young, I didn't think much about it, but now I'm watching an entire generation go off the scene. It makes me want to take good care of myself, better care than my elders gave themselves because they didn't have the benefit of all the research into diet and fitness that we enjoy now.

Take care everyone and have a great weekend! Think I'll be in the pool tomorrow...

    I know how you feel. Hang in there. I am proud of you for knowing you can change your own outcome. On tracking, its so hard! I have recently decided to try mindful eating. It works great when I remember. I have lost 2 lbs so far, but yesterday I totally forgot!
