Getting through it

Saturday, June 08, 2013

I am with my folks and have been for the past few days. My life is not my own, and I am busy trying to help out with the house, and my mother and father. I am doing Sparkpeople, but barely, and working out is tough.

I barely get my 6000 steps in per day, and normally do this in the am, but my mom had me busy up until dinner, then I finally got a chance to rest, and now work out late at night. I love my folks but I can't wait to go home and be able to focus more on my working out, nutrition, and weight goals.

My mom should be better in a week, so I have to help out until then. I don't mind helping out my parents, but I wish I lived closer so that I could have my own life. I miss my husband something awful, and all my pets and home. I feel a bit stranded.

I don't want to complain but eating is tough too. We finally had a decent meal tonight, and I am actally under eating calories. I have to catch up tonight with some fruit and a bran muffin. I will not give up eating healthy, but today was tough trying to actually eat.

I hope tomorrow is better. Well, off I go to workout in a dingy basement, sigh!

    emoticon I empathize with how hard it is to help parents and keep to one's own life, too. It sounds like you're making good choices. It's good to keep focusing on what you can control and doing your best with what's available. At least for me, that helps me to not feel like I'm messing up -- I try to remember that I am not dropping the ball on my program, I'm working hard with what I have available. Hang in there.

    I hope you will be able to return home soon. It is a great thing you are helping your parents.
