March 31st, 2020 Challenges
Since our last edition: I’ve maintained the integrity of my food plan boundaries, I’ve remained refined sugar-free, I’ve met or exceeded my daily water goal, I enjoyed a nice 2.8 mile walk, and I’ve stayed well connected with exceptional support.
I’ve often described mom’s health challenges as a rollercoaster. This analogy certainly fits the last few days. Saturday was a good day. Sunday wasn’t. The symptoms of her UTI suddenly became stronger-and a night and day difference was the result. The nursing staff and the doctor reacted quickly, immediately switching to a different antibiotic. Unfortunately, mom’s profound brain fog (a side-effect of the UTI) made her forget that she must have help in getting around. She took a fall Sunday night when she decided to trek across her room on her own. Fortunately, she didn’t get seriously hurt–and the staff treated her abrasion and bumps without a hospital trip. That’s a blessing. They’ve also kept her down by the nurse’s station for extended periods of time as an extra measure of care since the fall.
I wish I had more time to write this morning, I don’t. But I wanted to at least provide an update on mom’s situation. I sincerely appreciate the tremendous outpouring of prayers and support. Your comments, messages, and emails have been and continue to be a tremendous blessing to mom and me.
My morning foundational routine is complete, my food is planned and packed, and I’m headed for my morning show.
I hope and pray you and yours are doing well in this tremendously uncertain and unsettling time in our history.

Do you own an “I’m Choosing Change” wristband? I wear mine daily as a constant reminder of why my daily practice of things is important. For me, it’s simply a daily reminder to be open, willing, mindful, to pause, and to be intentional. If I’m not those things, I get stuck at the line of least resistance and back there is where the old patterns and behaviors thrive. Your order includes priority shipping so you’ll get it quickly! Here’s the link to order yours right now: https://imchoosingchange.com/product/wristband/
