The up and down battle rolls on. It has been a strange two weeks. Gained 9 pounds last week, lost 17 this week. Even gaining nine pounds in a week is tough if you try…and I did it trying to lose it. I am eating regular food now, and really watching portion sizes and avoiding the gazillion foods on my intolerant list. I am not sure why it is so up and down, and I am not sure anyone knows. At any rate, it seems to be going in the right direction again, so maybe it will continue that way.
This weekend will be strange being on tour busses all weekend on the youth band tour. My doctor suggested I prepare all of my meals ahead of time and take them in a cooler. I have to figure out how to do that. I hate that the nature of tour traveling leaves virtually no options for eating well. Due to time constraints on the road, it pretty much leaves fast food as the only option. It’s just not good for the kids…though we will survive. I will do my best to plan for this better in the future. Not that it helps this week.
Spending the week getting things together for the tour, trying not to forget any details.
