TOM is pretty much over, and so is the monthly bloat. I feel better today. Did my 1-mi. walk DVD this morning, even though I was sleepy.
Had a nice long weekend. Went to Houston Friday night, had a fight with my sister (
) and came back home without spending the night. We are under so much stress right now. We found out our mom's sick, too. I'm not going to go into details, but she will most likely need surgery and treatments afterward. She lives in another state, which makes it even more difficult. I want her to come live here, but she refuses. Maybe she'll change her mind now.
Saturday was good, I did all my chores like laundry and grocery shopping. Watched Dodgeball with my DS and two of his friends. That movie is so funny! Went to see Dad Sunday and made up with my sister. He's not doing as well as we wished he would by now. Still in ICU and not getting better fast. At least my sis and I are speaking again.
Monday was another homebody day. I made some granola, that was fun. I also made some parmesan vinaigrette salad dressing and some parmesan pepper bread in my bread machine. I used regular bread flour, not whole wheat. I know, not very beachy, but oh well. My DS liked it, especially when I made garlic toast with it. I went through all my MIL's old clothes, tried them on, and washed what I wanted to keep. Now I need to clean out my closet to make room for them. Took a nice walk outside with my dog. Man, he's getting BIG and STRONG!
B: Veggie/egg/cottage cheese quiche
L: Big green salad w/homemade dressing, a little leftover spaghetti
D: Chicken fajitas, WW tortillas, grilled onions & peppers, Mexican rice, pinto beans, green salad w/avocado
D: If I feel energetic, I might make applesauce brownies; if not, I might have some FF/NSA strawberry frozen yogurt w/a little DaVinci white choc. syrup
Don't know what the week will hold in terms of my parents' health. But then again, do we ever really know what each week will hold? I'm going to take life day by day for a while. Just going to do the best I can with eating and exercising. Gotta take care of myself, ya know!
