I have had a really hard time this week. When my life gets really busy, I tend to lose control where my eating is concerned. I started out doing an hour of exercise daily. However, after a couple of days, I stopped. This was my last official week of working summer school. In addition to that, I have 3 patients that I provide home health services to 3 times a week. Haven't been able to see them since I've taken each of my kids to various doctors for a total of 3 times this week. My daughter has strep throat. My son has a fractured arm. I took him to an urgent care center when he hurt it (a week ago yesterday) and was informed that he had no breaks or fractures. Thank God for a mother's intuition. I continued to press the issue until we finally saw an orthopedic doctor who put him in a cast. While he and I were waiting to be seen by the doctor, my daycare called me to pick up my daughter, who had a 103 degree fever. When I finally got home, I ate almost everything in sight, from chocolate to honey barbecue wings. I really got off track. I need to learn how to deal with the stresses of life in a different manner and not turn to food.
