Had another good day yesterday..did have a couple of cookies after dinner, but that is much better than the binging that had been going on a while back.. Actually sat and watched a little evening TV and didn't even think about eating. This is a big deal for me.
Rode my bike for 15 hard minutes this morning, and another 5 to cool down..
Other than continuing to feel very sad about my sister's MIL, I would say I am doing well. The sadness is definitely normal, I know, as I feel the loss myself but also see the impact on my sister, her husband and of course, my niece, and even my own son. Funny, my sister has been talking a lot about when our dad passed, it was many years ago, on Dec. 23..but as she says, Christmas was done, it wasn't like there was any need to shop or wrap, or any of that stuff at that point. Even though we could choose to do the same this year, or I should say NOT do the shopping and wrapping, something also feels wrong about that.. Just have to find that happy, or better yet comfortable, median, where you do what you absolutely must but not more.
