I caught my husband's cold - he's about all over his, I'm just getting really started on mine! I'm taking aspirin for the miseries and headache, store-brand cold eze (which does help me), and striving to drink, drink, drink liquids. Also, I spent a lot of yesterday asleep.
I think I will try to do a teeny bit of housework before my shower today - the former to make me feel better mentally, and the latter to refresh my flagging physical self. I won't do too much housework - no worries there!
Good news: no plans for the rest of this week until Thursday when we are supposed to go to the animal shelter (and take our grandsons again) to work awhile. The good news for me: Tyle was helpful last week, and there are only about six kittens in the room I'm responsible for cleaning - all of which will mean less time to do the work.
Time to either get started, or go back to bed.

As hard as I tried to not do it, I managed to catch my husband's cold. Nuts!
I'm taking aspirin for the miseries and headache, and continuing extra Vit C to help my body heal. Haven't decided whether or not to exercise at all today. May give myself the whole day off.
I'm planning to watch my nutrition intake, though. In fact, it's about time for a snack. Mmmm, fat-free yogurt sounds good. Maybe with a piece of whole wheat toast sans butter.
Y'all take care of yourselves out there!

I hope your Christmas is wonderful.
I had a goal to be down to 150 lbs by Christmas - very reasonable goal. But, I allowed depression and stress to 'cause' me to eat emotionally and I didn't even get as much exercise as usual in these past 4 weeks. Consequently, I didn't make my goal.
Now for the good news: With God's help (and knowing that others are praying for me, too) I'm turning my back on that and moving forward - or as Paul wrote in his epistle, "Leaving that which is behind, I press on towards the mark (my weight/eating goals)..." Granted, Paul wasn't talking about healthy PHYSICAL lifestyles, but the idea is the same. I refuse to let my downs/bads of the past few weeks derail me from my ultimate goal of good health (as far as I can influence it), and a lower weight.
Bob gave me the 5# dumbbells I wanted for Christmas, and our new treadmill is to be delivered next week, so along with my renewed determination, I AM ON MY WAY TO WINNING THE HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!
Closing this blog now - on our way to our daughter's for dinner, and enjoyment with our PA family. Trying to not miss our MS dau/family TOOOO much! : D
God's richest blessings on you all.

Our trip to the animal shelter with the boys was good. Tyler had a blast petting the kitties (they're about 9 mos old) while I cleaned their room. Tyler wanted to help, so I put him to work picking up the little toys, let him mop a little and he helped carry the 'cleaned' litter boxes back to their place after I'd finished the floor. Grandma's little helper. He loves cats.
After we came home, we baked gingerbread men and then went out to lunch. I had a root beer (no caffine, but empty calories, I know) and a Whopper Jr. Again, maybe not the best choice, but I had a real 'taste' for the burger, and I've been tracking my food all day. Had a good breakfast: oatmeal with raisins.
Tonight is candlelight services and afterwards my husband will drive the church van riders to see the Hershey Christmas lights - all 2 miles of them. Really cool displays - the usual Santa, reindeer, etc, plus a Victorian section, fantasyland section, and others. We went with our small group last week. The van riders don't drive, so they rely on someone else to take them places. We thought this would be a real neat treat for them, and us.
I refuse to even THINK about the freezing rain we'll get late tonight into tomorrow. It's to warm up enuf to just be rain during the day. But again, you'll notice that I'm refusing to even think about it. LOL
Merry Christmas everyone.

Today's high got all the way up to the low 20's! Brrrr!!!
I'm sorry that we're to get a 'wintery mix' late, late tomorrow night and have it turn into rain on Christmas Day. I've been enjoying seeing the snow on the ground. Well, there's lots of winter left for more of the white stuff. The naked trees look great with their covering of snow.
We got the snow blower fixed, so we're ready for more snow. It was good exercise, but LOTS OF SWEAT to clear those 12+ inches off the driveway this past weekend.
Tomorrow is our time at the animal shelter and we'll be taking our two local grandsons because their babysitter has Christmas Eve (and New Year's Eve) off. The older boy likes to walk dogs with his Grandpa and the younger one is looking forward to playing with the kitties while I clean their room. : ) Planning to bake gingerbread men when we get home. Hope the boys LIKE gingerbread. LOL
