2 wk Vacation home caused 5lb #wt gained

Thursday, March 09, 2017

Went to spend two weeks with family & friends. Was home for my dad's 89th! Such a blessing for me that he still knows & remembers me too. Grateful he was in the unusual mood to be very talkative & was very kind and loving versus the behaviors commonly associated with dementia. God is so wonderful always. While away it was difficult to schedule & manage daily workout routines as usual. Frequently finding my only options were once everyone went to bed I would walk/jog in my rm to music on my iPhone or YouTube. Then there are all the favorite regional foods not readily available where I reside that everyone either prepares or takes me out to eat at ! Golly gee, I didn't do as well as I have the last 2 visits I made & gained 5 lbs while away. 😞 so it's time to kick things back to what I need in order to stay in track. Will post an old (obese) pic my mom gave me while there once I get completely unpacked etc. I asked her if I could have to keep as a motivational reinforcement reminder of where I was. Anyway will see all sparkle friends soon & thank you so much for staying in my world supporting me during this life journey! Keep looking up !

    Well, as somebody in the same predicament (mum is in very late stage alzheimers), it's so easy to lose focus on things, other than illness.. Glad you spent quality time with your dad. Nowadays all our family time is stressful, don't be hard on yourse
