To Dad's and Back
Friday, June 18, 2021
I will keep this short and sweet as my shoulder is killing me and it hurts to extend my arm toward the keyboard.
I went to dad's. I didn't really "pig out" but i did eat more in a day there than I am used to here...and my weight went up 5 lbs. (I'd lost one yesterday and today have not weighed.)
I don't know...we didn't go out for ice cream or anything like that. Dad had a health crisis last FRiday (cardiac) and they put a pacemaker in and he is not cleared to drive yet. Thankfully a friend of mine drove me there and back as it is a 45 minute trip from my house. So we stayed at home for the entire visit. It was quiet but we enjoyed each other's company ...and when I left he said I had been a help to him. I don't really know how that could be but I did help him to place a grocery order from the internet because he was drastically out of everything edible.
It is tempting to not go there anymore since I always gain weight. However Dad is not getting any younger and his age is showing up in his health issues. I would hate to lose these sweet times I have with him just to keep my weight down. NO, I won't do that. But it would be good to manage the problem by - rather than eliminating it-- learning to deal with it in a healthy manner by continuing to track and to maybe have dad let me cook a couple of meals.
This week (past) I was unable to track as I had accidentally left my computer at home.
I look forward to being in the saddle once again,...
Hi, to all who probably wondered where I went. :)
