Well I am the trick or treat hander outer this year for a change. The little kids that dress up are so cute! The crabby teenagers who expect candy and tote backpacks and don't dress up are....sketchy. I don't live in the best neighborhood. So my motto is be nice to all and nothing bad will happen. I have had my cars broken into a few times, things stolen and windows smashed...so I don't want to give anyone reason to TRICK me. So I give everyone a treat.
Friday we sent to Sake House as a family to have dinner. I made good choices and felt good about myself. After that I convinced my scare Dee cat hubby to go see a scary movie with me. LOL he hurt my hand! Clutching it so tight through the movie. To me...it was funny. To him he enjoyed it but was scared. We laughed about it on the way home.
Saturday morning (after only 4 hours sleep) I got up at 8 a.m. and headed out to do some major, smart, grocery shopping. I towed along hubby and youngest son so they had input and ideas and so they knew and could see I was not going to put up or accept sabotages. It took forever and of course I got home and realized I did not get this or that but that was ok. I did some shopping for my oldest because his company shorted him 25 hours on his paycheck and he was short this time around. I figured some groceries would help until he gets compensated in a couple weeks. BTW HE told me he has made some rules for himself. He is trying to get healthier and to go from 280 to 210 by next June. I told him I was proud of him and if he wanted my help I would be happy to help. I told him I will always support him. This is a big thing for him. He has always been a closet eater. He always hid food growing up. I am happy for him that he is holding himself accountable. He is tracking all his food, exercise, pit falls and successes.
Anyway, did a ton of walking this weekend. And cleaning. I think coffee had a lot to do with the cleaning.
I made sure to go over carb counts and diabetic re- education with my husband again so he could refresh his memory and better be able to support me on my continued journey to being more healthy. He is being great. I talked with him how I always feel bad about making them eat what I eat and how I feel it doesn't seem like enough for them. He reassures me it is fine. That it is enough. My son assures me too. I am lucky to have such heartfelt support. I asked...sheepishly... well talked about if I got a new treadmill. I asked my husband what he thought about that. To me, in my head, he will think...I guess just don't waste the money. I have been through 2 treadmills. Both you had to make go by yourself, they were not electric. Hubby got to running on them and broke them both over the years. My husband said to my surprise....he would encourage me to get one and use it. I was happy to hear that. I deep down think he will use it too lol and that is good. He needs to exercise too.
So, sitting here reflecting...it has been a nice weekend. Supportive, loving and helpful. I couldn't ask for much more. Finally.... my life is going good after 40 years of horrible times. I wouldn't change a thing. It got me to this point and I am glad I am here.
