What's keeping me on track this week?
Thursday, August 20, 2009
This is a hard blog to write. It has been a very hard week for my entire family.
While I was at work Sunday, I got a frantic phone call from my Sister, letting me know that our younger brother was suddenly deployed to the Middle East. We knew he was going to be leaving, but we were supposed to have a couple more weeks with him. We still don't know where he was actually sent. I'm hoping he can get a message to one of us soon.
Late Sunday night, I got a second frantic phone call. This one was from my Mother in law, letting me know that my Husband's Grandfather had passed away. My husband was at work, so I had the tough job of telling him when he got home Monday morning. He's not taking it well. His Grandfather was his hero.
So, what's keeping me track this week? I can't really say that I've been on track. I had a couple days where my calories were way too low. I had one day where I went on a major KFC binge. I think I ate enough fried chicken, and mashed potatoes to feed a small country.
I keep thinking of my brother. He's keeping me going. I can't wait until he steps off the plane, and sees a thinner me.
