Today is a very special - sorrowful day. It has been 2 years since my son Aaron has passed. He died in a motorcycle accident at the age of 27. Much too young and a whole life ahead of him. When he died we were not on the best of terms and that haunts me every day.
He was one pretty guy that's for sure. A lot of people in my life have left me too fast and suddenly. 2 of my brothers, my mom and my dad and many others. but this time it was my child and it was different.
I have learned a lot since that day. What ever disagreements you might have with your loved ones - find a way to work it out and mend what ever is wrong. Don't wait. There might not be a next time.
Yesterday Hubby and I got into an argument in the morning before I went to work and I did not speak to him on the phone during the day like I usually do. After work I came home and he said something and set me off again. I got ready to take my usual 2-2.5 mile walk with the dogs and I said to him..." Do you know what tomorrow is?" He said NO - of course. I said "Think about it" and left out the door for my walk.
When I came back he said he remembered and said he was sorry.
Today at work it was sad. Well its sad for me every day - but today it just kind of hit me harder.
Before I knew it he came into work with some flowers playing that Pharell song "Happy" out loud on his cell phone. He tried not to cry and tried to make me feel better.
After work he took me out to dinner at Flemmings Steak House. We have never been there and it was super expensive - but boy it was good.
I had 2 glasses of Merlot, we split a salad, he had a bone-in rib eye that was out of this world - (I had a few bites) and I had halibut (also out of this world) only had half and a few asparagus. For desert we both had some bites of carrot cake.
He went out of his way to make me feel better today and we talked about Aaron and had a great dinner.
I am sorry I said I wasn't gonna blog anymore. I know you all need my experience and imput. I have been eating this way for way over 4 & 1/2 years now and not only lost over 93 lbs, but have kept it off. I will do my best to keep checking in and help who ever needs me.
Tomorrow is a NEW DAY. So whatever happened or whatever you ate bad today - just start over and keep going tomorrow.
