If you've read my other blogs from this week, you know it's been tough. But God grants grace and mercy (and sends friends who encourage and pray for me and my dau).
Yesterday morning we went to the animal shelter and right away I started sneezing. I just thought it was the out-of-date antihistamine not working (I'm allergic to cats). But no, I've suddenly come down w/a cold. NUTS! I hate having a cold - I'm not a good patient. I'm taking extra Vit C and Cold-Eze - they help me some.
Due to excuse-making, I haven't been good about exercise (or diet) this week. I DID spend 70 minutes on the treadmill early in the week, but nothing since. sigh. I'm disgusted w/the way I feel and certainly am not LOSING weight. My size 16, set-on waist pants are tight again. I guess when I gain a lb it all goes to my stomach.
Starting today, I'm getting back on the program - but a bit carefully. Having a cold means I won't overdo the exercise, but I WILL get SOME!
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers for Heather/Brian and the rest of us. HJ seems to be doing ok, all things considered.
Our weather: Some of you know I live in so-central PA. THANKFULLY, we haven't been hit hard w/snow this storm. But the winds are another story. Steady winds are in the mid-20 mph range with gusts going as high as 50+ mph. The little snow we've gotten (and what was still on the ground from earlier Feb storms) has been blowing all over the place, making for hazardous driving.
Still, I'm thankful it isn't worse. People not too many miles NE of us are about buried in snow again, along w/the strong winds. Brrrr.
