Wedding Diet Woes (and Wahoos!)

Welcome to my trials and triumphs!

 

40ish Hours

My mom is coming to visit. She is flying down on Wednesday. I am really excited and scared as fuck to see her. She has lost over 20 pounds in a very short period of time. My sister told me that she doesn’t really look sick, which is what I have been pretty much too scared to ask anyone. I want to do all kinds of things with her, but then I remember how tired she gets doing almost nothing. I try to reel it in, but then I get sad again.

I was told the other day that the cancer is now in her bone marrow. I am only 33. I shouldn’t lose my mom in my 30s. Something really sucks here. It is totally not fair. So this is why I haven’t been around much in the past week…

Besides feeling like the weight of the world is on my shoulders, I have been cleaning, organizing, and doing homework like a crazy woman. I wanted to get as much done so I wouldn’t be busy doing it while she was here. I have been pumping out papers and projects like a mad woman. I need to work on my audit project, but it looks like I might have to wait on that. I want to freshen up the guest bathroom and bedroom tomorrow. OH! And give my dog a bath! She STINKS. And I need to go shopping for last minute supplies, like flowers.

I am so excited that H2B’s tantrum tonight is not gunna bring me down. Well, it did, but I am trying to work past it. So much to do, so little time.

I was down a pound this week. A pound is better than none. Especially since I have spent most of my time on the couch doing homework the last week. I could do better, I chose not to right now. I am not in that great of a place. Maybe tomorrow. Or maybe next week. When my cancer-ridden momma is gone.

If I drank, I might be having a glass of wine right now.

I was just sitting here trying to figure out how switch things up and get the weight coming off again & to lose 20 pounds asap because I know how much easier it will be on my body, when I got(easily) sidetracked blog reading and was reading about your mom. I’m sorry. It’s always too soon when a daughter loses her mother. I was very close with my mum and I still miss her everyday, 4 years later. I lost her to cancer as well. I feel bad for people who never realize what they have until it’s too late.
Have a great visit with your mum & savor every moment you have with her. Big Hugs!

You should be proud that you lost that pound considering all the stress that you are dealing with. You had a loss and not a gain. That’s a big deal- especially when you are an emotional eater.
Sorry about your mum. None of us should have to lose parents so early.

I am so sorry! you’re right, no one should have to lose their mother in their 30s, not like this.
I notice you haven’t posted in a bit, and I just want to send you a virtual hug and tell you I feel for you.
