Crazy Update

On a personal level my life is pretty crazy right now...my Dad & Step-mom are fighting for their life battling stage 4 lung cancer.  My husband lost his mom to lung cancer a few years ago & it's a horrific disease.  I almost don't recognize my father now & he's so weak & tired it just breaks my heart.  It seems like I could deal with him having the disease & going thriough treatment, but seeing his life slip away slowly, believe me I was NOT prepared for, but I guess who is?  You know.  Last week his doctor wanted him hospitalized in a rehabilitation type of facility because he's not drinking or eating much.  Today he's going in for a scan & when the doctor sees him I know he'll want to hospitalize him.  He's not comfortable being away from Trudy, my step-mom, & I think it would probably be the last straw.  Anyway she starts chemo today, her 1st treatment, so I hope she reacts O.K. with it.  On a positive note, my daughter started 2nd grade today...she was so excited.

So that's my life...fun, huh?

I started out writing this on Monday...today's Wednesday.  He went for the scan on Monday.  I should know more on that today.  Anyway, back to the BFC.  I've gotta stick with it this time.  With all of the health issues in my family right now, I feel a strong desire to do something positive & healthy.

I'm going grocery shopping today to stock up on BFC items.  I saw this recipe for chia pudding I think I'll try it ...looks yummy.  Have y'all tried any of Jorge's new italian recipes?  I thought the chicken/spinach/cheese & the pasta one looked tasty.

Love to all of my BFC friends - It feels great to be back.

  1. HI Cat, I am so sorry to hear about you dad and step mom. I hope they are comfortable. You know my dad just died in January so I understand.
    You can still do the BFC even thru tuff times. I have not tried the Italian recipes yet, but I will let you know when I do.
    Have a great day :-)

  2. Hi Cat. I think this may be the first post of yours that I saw. I am a new blogger, and although I have been a fan of the belly fat cure for over a year, I haven't really followed it to well to lose the weight. I keep trying and now with all my new blogger friends and the great posts I read, I think I will be successful. I'm sorry to hear about all the sad things going on with your family. I hope your Dad is made as comfortable as possible. It must be hard to keep your mind on other things with all this going on. I hope things improve for him and your step-mom.
