Bittersweet Anniversary Plan Changes

Sunday, June 26, 2011

We were planning a reunion with some good friends who share a wedding anniversary with us and had reservations at a very nice restaurant, but were sadly awakened with a call that Jeri had taken a turn for the worse and we would have to cancel our plans. She had a minor stroke a few weeks ago and has been recovering pretty well but has had a few really rough days lately and was just not up to going out and celebrating. It's hard to think of us getting that old that these kinds of things happen, especially when you're feeling good! This just really reinforces with me that I have to be really serious about taking as good care of my health as possible with nutrition and exercise and rest! I am so thankful to have found Spark to really help educate me about this and to keep encouraging me to live this healthy lifestyle!
The day was very nice (other than the sad news about my friend) and my husband and I saw a great musical and then went into the city to our favorite Greek restaurant and I ate healthy and sensible portions! We have plenty that we took home to have dinner tomorrow. Now I am going out for a long walk on this gorgeous evening and will have some more water and a yogurt when I return!
Stay Healthy my Spark Friends!!

    Sorry you couldn't celebrate with your friends. Getting older is indeed a double-edged sword.
