Surprise Survey

Thursday, October 22, 2015

In long term care we have the state and federal surveyors come in every year. If we have had a complaint called in then they will come in It is a very intense audit that we dread and hate. This one lasted 2 days. ( By the way if you have a loved one in a nursing home give the staff a chance to fix it before you call the state. The staff will be the ones to fix it not the state even when they do come.)

Anyway long story short I did not eat well under the stress. I did OK til I got home then pounced on the chips and beer. I am afraid to get on the scales but will anyway.

    It's hard when you have so much stress in your life - making good choices just seems to use up more energy than we have. You recognize that you struggled. It gives you a chance to figure out alternative strategies for next time (and there WILL be a next time!) so you can get some good out of the struggle!

    Yes, that would be a stressful situation. I often am "afraid" of getting on the scales, but do it anyway. For me, being worried about the unknown is worse than knowing what is going on. Anyway, better days ahead.
