Hospital Food

The entire past week has been one of the most difficult weeks for my family. My younger brother had to be admitted into the hospital with sudden and major health issues last Friday. We've basically been living at the hospital ever since. And hospital food is definitely not the best for your health.

It reminded me that thinking about exercise and dieting is an absolute luxury that only some people can afford. Over the past week I couldn't bring myself to make a trip to the gym or avoid carbs as I vowed to do. It all just seemed ridiculous and trivial compared to the magnitude of what was happening in our lives. So I sat, and I ate.

This also makes me think of people who generally don't have access to healthy food or recreational facilities. They'd laugh in my face if they knew I had the time to think about this stuff.

Yup, it's a luxury. I'm not saying I'm going to give up thinking about dieting or exercise, but I think it's important to realize there are more important things in life, too.
