No regrets: The Thanksgiving aftermath.
Sunday, December 01, 2019
Hi everyone. I gained weight over Thanksgiving but I'm sure its mostly water retention. Lost 6 pounds in a short time. I'm not that far from where I left off which is a good thing. It all started when my mom came to visit. She's such a little thing and rarely eats much. She likes all you can eat restaurants and eats better there than anywhere else. Unfortunately, that is my downfall. Somehow there needs to be a compromise. However, I don't want to discourage her from eating.
After all that, my week was on a downhill slope. Fortunately, we went for walks in the cool mornings that we have had over the course of November and really enjoyed having company. Its nice to have a companion to talk with and spend time together. She is still very active and can outrun me. We choose walking over anything for which I am grateful. The walks were enjoyable and a welcome change.
I love her so much but was glad when I drove her home. She missed home ,however, we still had a good visit.
I think my dilemma is that when she visits me my formed habits fly out the window. She wants to go out to eat and doesn't like my cooking. I don't blame her as all the diet hype has left me a little uneducated in the cooking department. Sure, I'm great at cooking comfort foods that everyone loves. Remember? all that butter, cheese etc. Blec... hoping to reach new foundations for healthy cooking. Yeah, I have been watching videos, tutorials, and grocery store hauls!!! Just a matter of time.
Suggestions and comments appreciated!!
Hopefully, the holidays will bring all of us blessings. Maybe we can even stay focused with all the foods available around the holidays. May joy reach you and your family and friends.
