Been taking my grandma to dr appts for her diabetic ulcer on her foot which has now caused a bone infection. It takes a lot out of a person picking them up multiple times in a day mixed with stressing out about someones health. I never thought about what I was eating or making myself get up to exercise.
First half of the month did doctor appts and then everything came at a Holt.
Now we are all stuck in the house. My aunt starting working from home this past Friday. Gram is on meds and foot looks good so stress is way down. I can finally focus on one thing. Me. I'm right now jumping between 227 and 233 which is better then before, 234 and 237. I'm down to 1 coke, or none, each week compared to around 6 cokes a week. Doing better on less added sugars and eating more veggies. Been talking with my aunt about what needs to change. She's around 260. She agrees so I hope that we stay on track. We also only ate out 2 times this month, Larosas and Skyline. Before it was at least once a week. Next month we are having Long Horn Steakhouse for my grandmas birthday. And this will be the only time we eat out. I do love cooking my own food but at times I do feel overwhelmed with if the meal is balanced or if gram or my aunt would eat it.
Planning. I know this is the key to it all but for some odd reason my head goes blank and I cant think of any meals. So as I was typing this up it hit me. Some years back I had planned on making a list of proteins, veggies, grains and then make up meals. Ex: pecan crusted chicken // mixed wild rice // broccoli and carrots. I feel silly now, duh.
Yesterday I organized the lower kitchen cabinets and stretched so much that my lower back hurts so today is a rest day. I think i will work on my meal planning food chart.
P.S. everyone watch Derry Girls on Netflix. Season 3 coming out sometime this year. Its Irish so you really have to focus on what they are saying :)
