But to the point of the post...
This is hard. But hooray for people joining me. It definitely makes it easier. In fact, I have to try so hard to be encouraging and motivating to the kids that I can't really worry about how much I would love a handful of chocolate chips or any of their candy in the cupboard (which why am I keeping that?).
One of my favorite blogs that motivates me to be healthier is Word of Wisdom Living. You should read it if you don't. Every week he offers a new challenge. This week it was perfect. It was about the power of friends. I am grateful for awesome friends and family who are trying to make their lives healthier even when it is hard.
Today felt harder than usual. Because I was starving the entire day while I sat in a dumb hospital waiting room. The only option was free Lorna Doone's in a basket or a junk in the vending machine. I did bring a baggie of veggies with some hummus. But I thought we would be done before 7:30 pm. Wrong.
Kenyon had a 30 minute little procedure to stitch up an open wound on his knee. Simple really. But no...we checked in at 12:30 and left at 7:30. All I wanted was some M&Ms to get me through that.
Then I came home and just made a gazillion whoopie pies for this little darlin's birthday. And that was tempting. Someone please come eat them tomorrow night. I can't be left with all of them.
Today I am thankful for awesome friends who take care of my kids for way more hours then they wanted to and all the kind offers of meals and help and prayers. Thanks.
