*Total comfort foods, by the way. I was not even hungry when I ate them.
Please keep my mom in your prayers, everybody. I know that I have mentioned her a lot on my blog before and she needs all of the good thoughts and positive energy that we can muster, as she is battling breast cancer. She got the news yesterday, so obviously, the mood has been bleak around here, but life is going on. We are having a bbq tomorrow.
I do live with her right now and she is a fighter from the word go, so I don't doubt that she will kick this cancer's ass. I'm going to stay on the path with my low-carb cooking, which will help me retain the small bit sanity I have left during this tough time and it will also help the cancer not to spread within her, or that is what I believe at least.
We had our rough times during my teenage years, but in my twenties, we have really become best friends. I'm sure a lot of you can relate. I'm glad that I can be here to give her the support and encouragement she needs, but I'm also very scared.
It's difficult not to medicate with food, but if I can get through this, I can get through anything. Eating bad foods will not help the issues, anyway. They will make me feel like crap if I give in and stuffing your face never solved anything, anyway. Well, not for me, anyway.
