Ok, well, I don't have pics for all my meals, but I will edit this throughout the day.
I am working from home. There's tons of white stuff falling out of the sky. I am going to do a yoga tape later and set the bike trainer up for the afternoon.
Ok, by request, here's a pic of my new haircut. This is literally rolled out of bed, no brush, no goop, no nothing. I LOVE IT.
And keep with my accountability, here's breakfast... (there are flax seeds in the cereal)
More updates later. Until then, love to all my sparkfriends!
Oh the weather outside is...
is so delightful...
and since I'm working from home...
LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW!
Even my Tua is enjoying the fire today. :)
More later! :)
Lunch and snacks...

please please please when you see a sign like this on the roadway, believe it!
I watched three wrecks happen this morning on the interstate... two in front of me and one behind me that almost hit me when I had stopped on the berm to call 911.
*end safety weinie rambling*
I can't believe I actually ran in the snow yesterday. It was coooooooold. The roads were wet only, so that was not a problem. It was 30F and windchill of 20F. It was so windy. However, my ankles wouldn't warm up, so they wouldn't bend and I ended up running pretty slow. I still got 4+ miles in.
In case any of you ever want to check my training/training blog out, I keep all of that here http://www.dailymile.com/people/janette_ba
I decided to run with my satellite radio. Its not really all that heavy, but compared to my ipod, it was like hauling a brick around.
My walking friend was out too, doing his laps. I still don't know his name. All I know is he walks a lot and he referees soccer. He saw me and said "now THAT is dedication". When I lapped him later on he waved and clapped for me. That made me smile.
Its stopped snowing, but its chilly out. I came prepared today with thicker socks and a windstopper jacket. I did, however, forget my gloves in husby's car. I ended up taking my gloves off yesterday anyway, so I figure I'll be cold for a half mile or so then I'll be fine... just gotta suck it up til then.
I got all my errands run that needed done last night INCLUDING a haircut! When husby and I met, I had short hair. He said that someday he'd like to see me with long hair, so I let it grow out. Our deal was that if I couldn't stand it at any time I could get it cut. I was starting to get frustrated with it being longer because all I ever do with it is tie it up, but I didn't say anything to him about it. A couple of days ago, he said, I'd like to see you with short hair again and my inner self said OH THANK GOODNESS! AND to make things better, I had a 10 dollar off coupon, so my haircut was 3 dollars. :) And I LOVE IT. And its easy to take care of! And husby loves it! Win Win!
Ok, have a great Thursday and try to stay warm out there!

Well, its cold and snowing today, but not sticking to the roads, so I guess I will run in the snow... its amazing how that sounds better than the dreadmill.
I did not do my bike workout yesterday. I loaded and unloaded the truck with firewood and stacked it. I believe that's enough of a workout to compensate for the bike.
I feel very discombobulated today... I left early this morning figuring people would be driving like idiots on the interstate. Well, I didn't make it very far before the low fuel light came on, so I had to fill the truck up. That pretty much burned all of the time I had left early. Right about then I realized that husby's Blackberry is in the truck with me. I don't have the time to go back to the house to drop it and he wasn't answering the house phone to come get it, so I still have it. About 50 miles into my trip I realized I left my iPod at home... so I downloaded the podcast for today, but left it at the house... no music AT ALL for my workout at lunch. :( Oy, oy, oy.
I have pain in my right side today. I'm thinking I pulled something moving firewood yesterday. I'm eating now so I can take some pain meds in a bit.
I am going to turn this day around and make the best of it. Everyone have a glorious Wednesday!

Last night I was all cranked up to go to the base and get my "twofer" in. Yep, didn't happen. We got to Kingwood and the town Christmas parade was happening and they had no alternative routes marked to get around it. After trying a couple of side streets, we said heck with it, turned around and went to the grocery store.
Oh well, I still ran 4+ miles yesterday.
Its a rainy day today, but its warm. Unless its just absolutely pouring at lunch time, I will get out and run. I can't stand the thought of the dreadmill again. I told myself though, if the weather is really poopy at lunch and I decide to go to the gym after work, I will do the elliptical. I know I will complete an elliptical workout. I'm not sure if I will have the motivation in the evening to complete 3+ miles on the dreadmill. Blahhhh.
I got so much done last night. We went to the grocery store, so I put all the groceries away, folded all the laundry, packed my gym clothes, packed my breakfast and lunch, and prepared dinner for tonight. I am making the SP "Slow cooker pineapple chicken teriyaki". So this morning, I pulled the dish out of the fridge, dropped it in the crockpot, set it to low and I should have yumminess as soon as I walk through the door this evening! I felt very accomplished last night. AND, I still had time to do two crossword puzzles (USA Today and Washington Post), a couple of other word games, shower and enjoy some husby time! Whew, what a night. I was asleep by 10. :)
Have a great Tuesday!
