@Broadbean: Seriously, I do think the combo of the hot yoga and this WOE really does help getting through the tough times. Light-heartedly, I call the combo my "fountain of youth." Too bad you weren't closer - I know of a great studio
@fostermom4: Wow, that's alot of drama! I'm sorry to hear about your family. The more I tell my story, the more I hear of others. Sometimes I'm really thankful I'm only dealing with what I'm dealing with! Cheese? Really?
So, I'm thankful with all of the issues with mom it's not being compounded with diabetes, cancer, kidney dialisys, or some other crazy disease. At lease we have that
on our side (if we have a side).
It's hard to see my dad go through this. You can almost hear his heart breaking over this stuff. It drives me to tears to see him like this. I can deal with physical issues, but to see him like this...
He once said to me "I can fix anything but a broken heart..."
Seeing my mom, seeing my dad, seeing all the other people in the hospitals really, really motivates to stay with this WOE and continue to exercise. Ain't no way in heck am I gonna end in a position like that. No way.
It still baffles me that the majority of our population in North America does not want to make the connection that if you eat crap, you will get sick.
Oh wait, there's a pill you can take if you get sick. Silly me.
Well, the weekend beckons me. My boyfriend and I will be going to visit mom, take care of the house and my dad. I'll do some cooking, cleaning and throwing out. They grew up in the depression era, so there's lots of extra stuff they don't need. Talk about pack-rats.
I'll also be working in yoga in the mornings. I was thinking last night in class that as I sweat - those are all my tears coming out in full force - just not the tiny drops from eyes. It's been good therapy for me.
So, to all - keep on truckin' and thanks so much for the read.
