I’ve been in NJ visiting my folks since late Saturday (it’s now Wed). I’m sitting in Panera, responding to work emails and trying to secure some last minute gifts before the year’s end.
So Panera isn’t very bariatric friendly. I grabbed a Greek yogurt, and it has strawberries, honey, and granola (sweetened) on it. So much sugar! Yes, it is natural sugar but it is still so incredibly sweet and makes me queasy!
Last night, after almost losing a few limbs in the great Chinese food debacle of Christmas 2018, I ate Chinese food for the first time since my surgery. My body was very unhappy with me! As delicious as it tasted, it immediately made me feel incredibly sick. So, I am putting that on the back burner for a while.
Tomorrow I am driving to NY and working out of our national office. On Friday, I’ll stop at Hartford to meet with a donor, and then arrive home, and likely pass out on my couch! I will see Ted on Saturday, which is a good thing.
I’ve had some good quality time with mom and dad this week. Mom is physically weak but mentally strong. I think she is improving a bit each day, which is encouraging. We had some serious talks this week about wills, living wills, and the like. I believe these are important conversations to have with aging parents, as difficult as it may be.
That’s all for now!
