Finding it Difficult

Trying to get back on the diet plan. I'm finding it difficult. I know it is in my best interest for my health.

I think the issue is the amount of food in my fridge that spoiled while I was gone. It makes me crazy to throw away food. I saved some out which I thought was okay, not past expiration dates, not opened. Wrong.

The result was a mild case of food poisoning. So, I cleaned out all that could be tainted in anyway. Thursday, I will take myself to the grocery store and purchase the correct food items. Smaller quantities and plan how I am going to use things.

Now if we can be done with hurricanes, I'll be all set. I am trying to find my house and get back into the swing of my schedule here. Have a couple of doctor appts coming up. Have to get an oil changed on the car.

Need to get back to my exercises for my shoulder. Just need to sort out the mess I made in the house while scrambling to evacuate for Matthew.

It will take me the rest of this week. Then I have to prioritize the things which need to be done to make this house more livable. Which means finishing getting my office put together. Hanging wall art and painting my bathroom. The list is longer, but I won't bore you.

Blood sugars are once again coming down. This is a good thing. Time to get the crockpot out and start cooking. Also freezing the leftovers for another meal.

I got this...it just takes time.



  1. I don't like to waste food either but I do try and throw stuff out - after about 2-3 days depending on what it is. I had a good friend that got shigella food poisoning and almost died from it. She aquried a auto-immune disease that was caused by the poisoning.

    Yep, have to be very careful with the food.

    I'm starting to have some issues with my weight. It's maddening.

    1. Debby, mine spoiled because I evacuated for a hurricane. Then remained where I was longer than planned. I am back in the saddle again as I know it is best for me.



My laptop has been at full capacity for the past two weeks. It's nice to be consistently writing again. It's been hit or miss for...
