Happily uninspired

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

I come here at the end of every day to log my food and type in a few thoughts, with the goal of having a routine that keeps me on track and motivated. Tonight, I'm a little flummoxed - I don't have any thoughts related to food or health floating in my head ready to flow out. So I'm going to put on my rose-colored glasses and hope that this is a sign that I'm settling into the routine of maintenance, and am not as anxious/focused on food/weight/health as I have been for the last half year.

Or maybe I'm just a little too content this evening. Our oldest is sitting on the sofa next to me; we are both goofing off on our laptops. But every once in a while, we chat about something, or I sneak a kiss on the top of his head. It is a lovely peaceful feeling, knowing that both kids are safely under our family roof. I know that our oldest is technically an adult and in a few short years he'll be done with college and *really* on his own, so every day of his summer break at home seems precious and needs to be treasured.

    Oh no!! What are we going to do if you stop writing blogs?!

    Just remember that non-food and weight-loss related blogs will also be much appreciated. OR you could post your arm skin video! Please keep us entertained!

    Seriously, though, I like the scene of you and your son side-by-side with your laptops on the sofa. Yes, indeed, enjoy those times to the fullest! There's a big psychological difference, I've noticed, when they graduate from university and start working. That's when their visits home really get short and you yearn for the good old days of vacations long enough to go to the grandparents' house or take a trip to a faraway place.
