Hard To Stay on Track - But Won't Give Up!

This past week has been extremely difficult again trying to stay on track. My mother continues to make food that I cannot eat and if I don't eat what she makes she gets all upset. Then my sister was here too and we went out to eat a couple of times at a "home style" cooking restaurant and also a tea room. Many of the foods that are not good for me. Especially my IBS. Today I bought some things I can eat and will make at my moms for the three of us. She is not too thrilled, but I told her I wanted to cook for her too. Hopefully she will like what I make.

I have been able to take walks in between the rainy days. If it's a rainy day then we walk inside a mall or store. Otherwise we enjoy the beautiful scenery as we walk around my mom's or our campground.

I appreciate your prayers and encouragement to stay focused. Thank you so much.

Fitness Friday Update

I have not posted in a couple of weeks.

I am still on vacation. It is very hard to stay on "track" while at my mother's. I am watching my portion control. I am walking, almost every day. Unfortunately, we have had rain for three days now. I did have my mom take me to a mall yesterday for me to walk. My IBS has been acting up because I am not able to eat organic foods. I have been doing the cooking the past three days which has helped.

The walk has been about a 1/3 of a mile... half of which is uphill. I could walk further I believe if it were not for my right hip and left foot. Pray I can find a pedometer (is that what it's called?) so I can measure my walks.

I am praying this rain stops soon or maybe we should build an ark! LOL! I'm a little tired of the rain and dampness.
