Day Three

I ate almost as planned yesterday. I had to sub in some salad for zucchini as there was not as much left as I thought and my ten year old loves it too. 

My mom is still in hospital. They are doing some tests to figure out why she got the clot. That test will help them decide if they are going to just go with coumadin or put in a filter. The bigger problem is her sugar. Even with insulin she hasn't gone under 500. One of the doctors told her that prednisone (which she is on a low dose of) can cause sugar to increase. Now the doctor did not mean it was the primary reason but damned if that isn't what my mother heard. Already she has made comments about it not being her diet. My sister and I just shake our heads with a very "what the fuck?" look on our faces. I'm debating about going to her house and clearing the shit out of the cabinets and refilling them with healthy fare. I'll talk to my dad about that tonight. I am sure he will be on board. He may want someone else to take the heat though and I'm ok with that. 

Today's plan is more of the same:
Breakfast- 2 boiled eggs
Lunch- salad with grilled chicken
Dinner- beef with some veg, probably salad, and avocado

I read on someone else's blog, can't remember if it's someone doing the Whole 30 or Allan's picture challenge, but this person talked about her dinners being the same because they eat a lot of leftovers. We, obviously, do the same. It gets eaten until it's gone. Thankfully, my family is on board with that. Not that it matters much if they weren't, because it's eat what is in front of you or don't eat at all, I don't much care.

Probably won't post over the weekend, I'll be too busy getting myself written out of my mother's will. Have a great weekend.


  1. Sorry to hear about your mom. Don't feel bad about being written out of the will. It's not really all that bad. I was written out of my moms' a while back!! :)

    Stay focused and keep going.

    This too shall pass.


  2. I know I do boatloads of leftovers. It's the only way I can function during the workweek, so my dinners tend to be the result of Saturday's bulk cooking, and lunches are the result of Sunday's.

    It keeps me from having to think too much also, which is a plus.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. What a stressful situation for all of you. I hope you can convince your dad to let you help her.
    Take care of you.

  4. I hope things get better for you. Sorting mother's pantry/cabinets--couldn't get more controversial within the family than that. Your food is looking good. That very last thing anyone needs is to be stressed out and *also* gain weight--looks like you're avoiding that. :D

  5. An instructive post. People to really know who they want to reach and why or else, they'll have no way to know what they're trying to achieve. People need to hear this and have it drilled in their brains..
