This week I went home because my grandmother passed away. She passed away early in the morning on Tuesday and by Tuesday evening I had a plane ticket home. Rather, to Buffalo. Buying a ticket from Florida to New York last minute is never pretty, so I chose the cheapest route, which was Buffalo. Since my middle sis lives there I flew into the Buff and drove the 5 1/2 hours home with her. So after my 3 hour flight to D.C., layover, delayed flight, 2 hour flight into Buffalo and drive across the state, Wednesday was over before I knew it.
Thursday was a day with my sister and mom and then the private service at the funeral home. My grandmother's house is on a huge farm in upstate NY and I spent a lot of time getting into a ridiculous amount of trouble there with my siblings and cousins. So, when we arrived at her house for a family gathering after the service, the memories definitely came flooding back. The window we broke, the hill we went down in a plastic pool, the rock wall I hit with a 4-wheeler. It was a lot to take in. [Side note, what is it with white people and funeral food?! Casseroles, carbs and sweets...the 3 groups of food for those in mourning.] But, I digress.
I will leave any other details of this week out of this post out of respect for my family, but I will say that I was glad to be there for my mom and rekindle relationships with family members. It was a good couple of days to remind myself to slow down, because life is short.
On the weight loss front, I wasn't expecting much. I tried to do extra laps in the airport and log my food, but when I stepped on the scale I was pleasantly surprised!
lbs lost: 1.4
$ earned: $1.40? Nope, mama rounds DOWN!
Toughest Part of the Week: Making good decisions on the road & not eating my feelings
Easiest Part of the Week: Logging-LoseIt is so convenient!
