You Fit Friday #6

Better late than never, right?!

This has been quite the week!  Our son had surgery Monday & that is one of the hardest things to go through as a parent...especially the part where they are taken away from you & there is nothing you can do about it.  The waiting part afterward is pretty nervewracking too!

While waiting, I was thinking about a lot of things.  One of the things I thought about was the following:

We were up super early.  We stayed at the hospital for several hours.  We traveled home after he was okayed to go home & I stayed glued to his side cuddling for the rest of the day.  And you know what?  I stayed on program.  I didn't eat vending machine food.  I didn't just not eat the whole day.  I took meals in my purse & I ate every 3 hours.  It was so awesome.  It was mindless & convenient and my blood sugar didn't spike & I felt great physically.  This was eye-opening for me that no matter what's going on, we can choose to make healthy choices.  We can be better.  We can choose health.  Anyway, it was pretty cool to me that I could be in a stressful & scary situation & still take care of myself in the least time consuming way so I could take the best care possible of my little guy.  Cool, huh?

Next topic: What are you giving for Christmas gifts this year?  To friends & family & neighbors?  I'm anxious to hear some great ideas-preferably non-food related items & ideas...but healthy options are a good thing too.  Please leave a comment & share for myself & other readers who are searching for something other than the regular sugary sweets we give each year.  

Here's the incentive:  should I choose to replicate your idea for some of my family & friends, you will receive a special prize!  Spread the word & share share share!
