I got home tonight and got into a trying on mood. You know, check the closet, cross your fingers, and see what fits.
And -- lo and behold -- I was able to not only get into but actually button and have room in -- a long coat that I haven't worn since two jobs ago! That is, since a job I left in mid-October.
No more wearing a jacket if I'm wearing a skirt or dress and need something else to keep me warm. I'll look professional. And cute. ;)
This has been a late breaking news story. We now return you to your regularly scheduled life, already in progress.

Both are equally cheesy but the song spoke to me last week in a way that didn't really hit me until this morning. I was walking to the bus stop and just really striding. And fast, too!
Now, I always seem to have shin splints or ankle issues or some sort of weird nagging foot pain or whatever -- all of those dumb things that keep one from enjoying just walking. But today I was really on fire.
I don't want to jinx it but it really felt fabulous. Now if I could only bottle that.
Oh and another thing -- when the Monday weigh-in comes around, I suspect I'll be at 25 lbs. off. Yay me! :)

... if you can't give it to someone?
At least, that's what my father always says.
Hence, I'm going back to work although, since I more or less got this bit o' fun from someone there, I probably can't return the favor. Ah well, there's always next time.
Anyway, thank you all for your kind support.
I did the resistance bands this AM, plus I will have to get in 15 mins of walking whether I want to or not -- it's the only way to get to work. But no weights for me today, and possibly not tomorrow; I'll see.
I'm just glad to be up and about, without any sort of body aches to speak of and with an internal temperature that seems to be stable.
More or less.

Last night I got into bed and could not get warm. My hands and feet, in particular, were freezing. So I piled on the layers -- 2 prs of socks, 2 sweatshirts, 1 pr long john bottoms, 1 pr sweats, 1 3/4 sleeve shirt. Plus one of the sweatshirts is a hoodie and I wore the hood, and I put on gloves.
I was still cold. I had body aches. I was supremely unhappy.
Come this morning, of course, I'm sweating. Again like a longshoreman.
Hence I'm calling in sick to work today and there will be no physical activity for me, shy of getting downstairs to get my meals. I'll still take the alli capsules and will still watch the food intake but there is no way I am doing anything physical. I really want to kick this cold/mild flu quickly. A lot of people around me have had it. I had a flu shot this year but it doesn't seem to matter much as there is a strain going around that the CDC missed when they mixed up the batch of vaccine.
I will now revert to my childhood, as I sometimes do while I'm sick.
Therefore, please read me a story. Thanks in advance zzzzzzzzz

Two days ago it was salmon. Yesterday it was leftover salmon for lunch and swordfish for dinner. Today it'll be tuna for lunch.
I am enjoying it -- I used to eat fish before, but we didn't have it for meals as my husband was not enamored of it. But he's a lot more interested now. It also seems that when I have fish over the weekends, I have better losses on Mondays (my official checkin day). Hmmm.
I will not, however, grow gills.
A gal's gotta draw the line somewhere.
