MyFitnessPal Ticker

Tuesday, May 1, 2012

May 1st

Weight: 246.4 pounds
 Didn't get body fat or measurements.

 Also, didn't really get to exercise.

 My father-in-law, who is dealing with the effects of lung cancer right now, was admitted to the hospital again tonight for dehydration and slight malnutrition. He has ulcers on the lining of his esophagus that make swallowing extremely painful. He's been given different pain meds and through IV they're fine, but once he goes home and takes the pill form, he gets itchy and breaks out in hives. Actually, we almost lost him last week because he was in so much pain he hardly ate or drank and was so extremely malnourished and dehydrated that he was probably days if not hours away from his organs starting to shut down.

 So, while some say this is an excuse, my place was there with my husband and mother-in-law. My husband even said no to me staying home to exercise because he wanted me there.

 Tomorrow, I'll try again. I did count my calories though today and have them recorded in MyFitnessPal, so I wouldn't call this a complete fail.

  1. I don't care what anyone says - sometimes there ARE more important things in the world than dieting and exercise. Being with loved ones in their darkest hours is DEFINITELY one of those times. Hugs to you and your family and I hope things get better for your father-in-law VERY soon!
