Bad Week

Hello! I'm still here :)

I had to take a little break from blogging, as I have had one of the worst weeks ever. First off, me and the boyfriend broke up. That was tough. It was very mutual though, but hurt none the less. Then on Tuesday, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer :( Fortunately they caught it early. It hurt me to see her sad though. This is a woman who has stood by my side through everything, never judged me, she is my best friend. So to see her sad and crying was devastating to me.

She is doing and feeling much better now. The cancer is treatable :) Breast cancer does run on her side of the family. Her sister had it and her aunt. I'm just happy that her spirits are up :)

On the food front I have been doing awesome, despite all my troubles. My appetite is bigger than ever :) I have been eating a HUGE bowl of oatmeal for breakfast everyday, tons of fruit and have been cooking a lot. I love cooking, I find that for me it really does relieve my stress. I made this delicious dish yesterday for dinner.

So good :) Tonight is going to be some baked butternut squash, I have been craving it for awhile now.
I have also been going to the pool every morning this week. I feel so good after I swim. It keeps me energized at work all day :)

So I'm off for now, I have to catch up on all your blogs! I missed you guys!!

PS..I got the package today Heather!!! I love it! And the note you wrote was absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much! xox

Have a great Friday night everyone :)

I am so sorry that you're having to cope with so many tough things all at once. You're an amazing woman for staying strong through it all when most people would crumble with just one of those elements to deal with.

You have the rest of your life ahead of you to find your true soulmate and I wish your Mom all the best with her recovery and treatment.

*hugs*

I'm so so sorry to hear about your mom, I have been so involved in my own hospital stint that I was not aware of what was going on in your life.
I saw how upset my children got when they heard I have suspected MS and live in South Africa with me in Germany. These are not easy trials in life. I too have to fight as I know your mom will.
I also have not given into bad way of eating due to my situation - its a lifestyle now so be very proud of yourself...
Your meal looks very tasty indeed.

OMG Christina! I just got back from Yoga Teacher Training and hope you're still holding up well. Sounds like you are handling everything so well, and I am so proud of you! My neighbor had breast cancer that was pretty far developed, and she's 100 percent healthy and cancer free right now. I KNOW your mom is going to pull through this, especially with your immense strength on her side. Please, let me know if you EVER want to talk... just shoot me an email!!! I'm here for you! :)

And I'm so glad you got the package!!! Glad you liked it!!!
