It is crazy cold here. It was in the low 20s when I walked my dog this morning. I was very thankful that our walks are only 10-15 minutes long! Also, I was glad for an amazing knit infinity scarf my mom made me last year. It's so thick and long, it wraps around my neck three times and covers my mouth. It looks kind of hilarious, but it's so nice for keeping the cold out.
I'm desperately hoping that we won't have snow coverage on Thanksgiving, but I'll allow a flurry just so you can get your snow fix =).
I don't think it's mean to feel like he's in the way a little bit. That's just part of adjusting to having a new person in the house. Hopefully if he does end up staying with you for an extended amount of time, things will get easier.
Things are going relatively well for me. I'm up about a pound and a half from my weight over the summer, but I kind of expected that. As long as I stay within my range, I'm okay with it. I know my weight will likely bump up and down as the seasons change. It does feel like I'm totally relearning how to control myself around food when I'm not planning on tracking, though. I really felt like I had a decent handle on it while the weather was warmer, but as it's gotten cold I've struggled a bit with it again. I'm still trying to learn how to love my body enough to only give it what it really needs and not overload it with junk. But I think that's something I will always struggle with.
Thanks for the Sparkgoodie! I'm glad to hear your appointment went well and that you know a little bit more about what's going on. I hope that your re-introduction of spin class goes well, and I know you'll take it easy so you don't hurt yourself more. Also, I actually ate fresh figs on the last cruise I went on, and they were very tasty! It's hard to find them elsewhere, though. Enjoy your weekend!
