So much has gone on especially in the last few weeks here at the Hobbit House….I can’t divulge fully due to privacy issues but it would be fair to say that we received terrible, terrible news that has turned our lives upside down. But we are the lucky ones…
One of my ways of coping with sadness is to over eat… some people shout and scream, some drink, others go quiet, I eat.
Previous to the news we received I was meandering, just the occasional 1940’s meal… for the last few weeks I have made sure that my days are filled with food… it kind of stops you crying and takes your mind off things temporarily.
I jumped on the weighing scales Friday night- the first time in several weeks and if memory serves me well my weight back then was around 285 lbs. I was horrified to see the needle move back up to 310 lbs.
Yesterday I popped into the pharmacy and had my blood pressure done. 176/88 …. NOT good news.
This was probably a combination of a recent bad diet and stress.
Needless to say I have jumped right back in and am trying my damned hardest to get back on track starting with a week of trying to cleanse my body of some of the toxins I have accumulated…..
Yesterday’s main meal was a huge salad sprinkled generously with Organic Apple Cider Vinegar (an old fashioned cure for all)
I’ll keep you updated
