Me in 25 years?

Tuesday, August 07, 2012

As I look at my calendar for August it hits me: I have been taking care of my aging mom now for a few years and the doctor appointments are now overtaking my life! At least 3 days a week this month she has appointments with one doctor or another and needs to be taken to their office by me. Is this what my life is going to be like in 25 year? Will my daughter be taking me to different doctors for these same ailments because I did not have a healthy diet or make time to exercise?
While I need to be there for my mom, I also need to make time for me! I can no longer use "No time" as an excuse because NOW IS THE TIME! So I am back on Sparkpeople, commiting to a healthy lifestyle. I know it will not be easy and as a stress eater I will need encouragement and support! Where better to find it than with my friends here!
Thank you for being here!

    I know this answer is late, but yes. Take care of you. That is what your Mom wants and rejoice in these years with your Mom. I treasure the time I had with my mom in her later life even though it was exhausting. Wish I had eaten better and practiced meditation.

    The past is history and the future is a mystery but today is a gift...thats why we call it the present. Glad to see you are taking charge of yourself and the choices you make to ease any burdens your children may have in the future. Awesome job and welcome back!
