This week was far from ideal to put my new resolutions into practice.
My husband went into hospital on Tuesday to have his diabetes checked out and to start insulin so, for those familiar with my circumstances, it means that the rest of the household are enjoying the peace and lack of stress. However, the diet kicked off badly because hubby insisted on eating out on Monday and Tuesday in case he would be deprived of goodies during his week in hospital.
Then to celebrate our ‘freedom’ my son and daughter cooked two special meals on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, my friend invited me to have lunch at the restaurant with her and her daughter so ‘dessert once a week’ was a complete non-starter.
Add to that the hours spent sitting about in a hospital bedroom and you can understand why the scales haven’t shifted this week.
Of course, I’ve done some housework but when I wanted to cut the grass I just couldn’t start the lawnmower. However, we have stripped the wallpaper in the last room which needs redecorating and this involved lots of scraping and then scrubbimg off the residue of the glue as we are going to paint the walls to stop the cats sharpening their claws on the wallpaper.
Today, my son is plannng to make vegetable lasagne and I’m hoping there won’t be a dessert . . . . . . . .
Fingers crossed I’m able to do better next week.
