We had finished Day 12 of the “Diet Within a Diet,” and then my grandson, John, was born.  I traveled to Clearwater to be with my daughter and son-in-law as they settled in with the new baby, and during that time, I didn’t stay on the 21-Day Diet.  Furthermore, I didn’t stick closely to the OsteoDiet either.  Do I regret it?  Not a bit!

Sometimes it is more important to be a kind and thoughtful guest than it is to maintain one’s preferred diet.  To have carried my food with me to visit my son-in-law’s family gatherings would have made them feel awkward, as if they had not been hospitable or considerate.  Nothing could be further from the truth!  All of them were extremely warm and open to me, and the meals they served were absolutely delicious.  I felt surrounded by love, and I truly was!

When I returned from Clearwater, I had a new job to add to my activities, as I became an adjunct instruction for Daytona State College.  With the extra job and the subsequent adjustments to the family cooking schedule, there simply hasn’t been time to devote to the 21-day diet.  Soon there will be time, though.  Don’t give up!  We’ll be back at it soon.

In the meantime, I’ll keep exercising and doing my best to maintain the 80% alkaline / 20% acid OsteoDiet for the health of my bones.  I hope you will, too.  🙂
