SP Premium

I know, I know... when I stop blogging that is no good - It usually means that I am up to my old tricks and yes, I have been very naughty with my eating!! I've tried to stick to my plan and do my cleanse, but I have found it very hard to handle the stress and not seek refuge in "comfort" food. I have not exercised much either - when I've had time, I have done my Ab Jam & arm weights. No gym for right now, but LOTS of walking...

Things are going okay - my dad is in the waiting game right now. He has to take more tests & just wait for the doctors to schedule everything. His PSA levels were like a 9.5 so that is not good. He is in pain & that really makes me worry. I've been traveling 500 miles to visit with him but there's nothing I can do right now but be there for him.

I've been keeping my mind busy as the event coordinator for my high school reunion, which is perfect timing! It's kept me distracted and surrounded by friends, so that's always a good thing. Only 4 more days until the reunion, so I am doing the best I can to stick with healthy meals (stopping by BJ's last night wasn't one of them) :( But today is a new day & I will get back on my shakes. So far I've lost 8 lbs. on this last cleanse, so I am pretty happy with that!

THANK YOU ALL for the kind words and for sticking with me through this - I'm sorry I have not had a chance to get over to your blogs to see how you are doing, but once this weekend is over I'll have more time to slow down and get back in the game.

Love you girls!!! ~ Renee

    I hope you have a blast at the reunion, I for some reason thought it was last weekend even though I knew it wasn't.... does that make sense? I hope you get some answers for dad soon and you are doing an amazing job! emoticon

    Don't be too hard on yourself. You have done great so far and should be really proud. You have a lot going on so just hang tight and this too shall pass.

    Thinking of you!

    Wishing you lots of rest and fun -- exercise really does burn off stress, so when you can make time for it, it'll help!

    You definitely have a lot happening in your life right now. So take a DEEP BREATH and RELAX! Do what you can and continue being there for your Dad, that's what is most important right now. emoticon emoticon
