Bad month!

Wednesday, August 29, 2007

This is just a bad month here--I was doing fine till my father went into the hospital and he passed away a week later. I have been into ice cream and junk food to no avail!!! these are my comfort foods and it's better than smoking. The memorial is sept 1st in CAlifornia and I wont be able to travel there either. So I sent flowers and love and sympathy--all I can do!

hope to get back on-board with the challenge after sept 1st!

    I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your father. When my dad passed away last year I went on an ice cream and whiskey diet for a couple of days! I went off track with my diet for quite a while afterwards and exercise was just impossible. You have to be kind to yourself and allow yourself to grieve. Try to make healthy food choices, but the last thing you need to do right now is beat yourself up when you indulge in those comfort foods. Just like a physical injury (sprain, break), you can't rush the healing and there will be times when you think you are getting back to normal and then you'll have a setback.

    The thing that helped me most was remembering all the happy times I spent with my father - the fishing, the conversations. Some of them weren't even "happy" - there were conversations I could have with him that I could have with no other family member, but the happiness lies in the way we always understood each other. Focus on all those good times you shared and allow yourself to smile or laugh as you do so.
