Bad News

Sunday, September 16, 2018

We seem to be dealing with a lot of bad news lately. A very deal uncle is suffering from advanced dementia, a family relative passed away and a dear friend called today to tell me that her cancer has returned and she has a stage four brain tumor. Traditionally, I might have reached for junk food. However, today I went for a long walk and gave thanks for my family. I am trying so hard to make healthier choices when it comes to my diet; more of the good things and far less of the junk food. It isn't just about losing weight. The Sparkpeople nutrition site is helping me to see the value in what I eat. How did I get to be this darned old without knowing these things? I am living proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks!
