Here it is 4:00p.m. already and I just remembered that I still haven't put my SPAT on! So do I just take whatever steps I get, even though it won't even be close to 10,000 steps or do I dodge the rain and try to go for a walk?
The last 2 days I got my 10,000 steps but not 10 minutes of fitness since the granddaughter was here and we were busy playing, hanging out, blowing bubbles, playing with side-walk chalk, playing in her little pool, making snacks, giving baths, trying to pick up, looking for lost shoes, feeding baby cows and just simply doing what she wanted. I sure do love it when she comes but we don't get much done!
Ohhhh, I think it quit raining....but for how long?
8:00p.m. and I think it actually has finally quit raining. I wonder if I should try walking now????
9:28p.m. WOOHOO got a walk in and hit 14,000+ steps today!!

This weather is getting about as crazy as the weather we has this winter. Tonadoes, straight line winds and flash flooding, not good! The humidity is almost unbearable, but I shouldn't complain when so many others have had unbelievable damage to their homes and other property, the loss of crops and cattle. Makes me very sad. . Saying prayers for those affected by these unfortunate events!

My Mom is home from the hospital and had her first follow up today. Doctor said she is doing very well. Even gave her the ok to do the 4 hour drive tomorrow for Christmas with my brother! She is still a bit confused but both drs say that is pretty normal.
Managed to find a swim suit at Wal-Mart today so now I can go swimming with the Granddaughter over the weekend. Maybe that will help burn some calories!
Hope everyone has a safe and healthy weekend!

Wow is it cold or what. We had -19 this morning when I left for work. That's before the wind chill is figured in. The husband didn't have to work because of the weather so he drove me in so the car wouldn't have to sit out in the open parking lot. That made me happy!! It was sure nice getting into a warm car when he picked me up. I don't think my poor old car liked the cold to much, it was making some weird noises. The husband said was because it was so cold. A guy I work with has a daughter that is a dispatcher for the county and he was telling us that they had 9 calls from people thinking someone was breaking into their homes, but were actually the houses snapping and creaking because of the extreme cold. I can believe it because last night I was in the garage putting stuff in the recycling and it sounded as if someone was walking around in the storage space overhead. It actually scared the heck out of me.
I have not made it to the fitness center at all this month because of the cold and the simple fact that I hate changing. I change when I get to work, we have to wear flame resistant uniforms, change when I leave work. If it is warmer I put my gym clothes on before I leave work, that way I have no excuse. My gym clothes just aren't warm enough right now to trek across the parking lot. I know it isn't a very good reason not to go! Have to just do it, once I get there I am fine. It's just getting there.
The company I work for has gone 100% smoke free. It's a good thing I guess since I need to quit smoking but I am eating more now at breaks. That's not such a good thing! Trying to bring raw carrots, celery, sliced green peppers to snack on, but it seems the sweet tooth is really kicking in! Tracking my nutrition is still a nightmare!
My Mom has surgery on Wednesday morning. She has to be there at 5:00a.m. so that means she has to leave around 2:30 a.m. My Dad and niece are going up with her. I think I will either drive up myself or go with my brother and wife. I want to be there before she goes in, but my brother doesn't know what they will do about their son and getting to school, so they may go up after they get him off. This surgery makes me very nervous. They are removing a blockage from her cardioid artery. She had a triple bypass in 2009 that didn't make me nearly as scared! I just have a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach! They told us that she will only have to stay overnight and that she will be good to travel on Saturday. Saturday we are supposed to have our family Christmas for my side of the family. We are driving over 4 1/2 hours to stay at a resort and water park. I don't want to go. I really don't have the extra money for a room even though we are splitting the cost of a room. My one brother and family are renting a condo, they have a lot of kids and one room would not work for them. The condo has a complete kitchen so my other sister-in-law is telling everyone what to bring so we don't have to go out to eat, which is ok since it should save money, but she gave me a very long list with the brand of ingredients to use to make the stuff. Her daughter has a food allergy so she uses certain brands only. They aren't the brands I use so I have to buy more of something I have because it isn't the right brand.I understand her concern but I read the labels and can see if it is made in a peanut free facility. I just can't afford to buy more. I'm not sure what to do, don't want to make her mad.
My husband and son won't go because my husband hates driving that far and if there are more then 3 people there he just doesn't feel comfortable, has a thing for crowds. My son and brother don't get along because of a stupid reason!! I also don't have a swim suit, water parks aren't much fun with out a suit! Oh well, I just better suck it up buttercup!

I really don't like tracking my food! Scares me when I see the totals right up there on my computer screen!
I need to throw out the mayo, wow is there a lot of fat in 1 TBSP of mayo. I also need to start bringing my lunches and snacks with me to work again. I was doing pretty good at that until last month.
My husband doesn't understand that I can't eat the stuff he does and gets upset when I don't want to eat what he has cooked, so I give in so he doesn't pout all night and eat it. He gets upset when I cook my "diet" food for us, he eats it but picks at it forever! Grrr Maybe he should cook his own, and I'll cook my own and the Son can eat which ever he wants???
Ok I'm done whining for now!
