5% Challenge Week 2

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

This first week went pretty good - down 1 lb. However, this week might be a challenge because I will be out of town due to a family emergency.
I will be flying to Puerto Rico on Wednesday night to visit my uncles who are both suffering illness. One has cancer and the other one Parkinson. The family has decided to get together to celebrate their lives before the end comes. This is a bittersweet trip because my mom that suffered a stroke and is in the nursing home will be the one sister missing from the celebration of life. She will be honored but is really sad to go home and leave her here.
I will be there for only 4 days and I will do lots of walking so I know I will get my minutes in, but the food tracking might not happen. Plus the fact that there will be food I have not eaten in a looongggg time!!! emoticon m emoticon emoticon I just hope that by Saturday's weight in things are still good.

So I am pretty busy getting things settle at school to leave enough to keep the kids busy for Thursday and Friday before I can board the plane.

Will report back next week.! emoticon m emoticon emoticon

    I agree with Jonnie, this is not the time to worry about calories. Celebrate your family and life. Move as much as you can. I was you a safe trip and a wonderful time connecting to family

    This is not the time to worry about calories. Eating, especially in the Hispanic culture, is a big part of the celebration of life. Just move as much as possible, and work off any extra when you get back. Even at a time like this, it will be good to see members of your family that you don't get to see as often. My best thoughts are with you.
