Yep, we had a pretty heavy snowfall today. That snow was a-coming down. Took the dog for 5 miles worth of walk over two hours. I forgot to put his jacket on him, so he did some shivering at first, but once he got going he was fine. It is supposed to be positively frigid tomorrow, down in the teens, so I will make sure to put his jacket on and probably take one of our shorter routes. I would have liked the walk better if the snow had been big, fat flakes, but it was the small pellets that sting when they get blown into my face. Oh well, I'll still walk in it. I definitely like it better than the cold rain we had been getting. I actually broke out the boots today, to go with the two hats I wore, plus gloves and a scarf. I think I was a little overdressed actually. I broke a sweat while we were coming up the steep bit of hill. I like to sweat when I work out, but then I tend to cool down too fast and get chilled. I'll get the hang of it eventually. We are going out again in the morning!
I have to go for a blood test tomorrow. I was actually supposed to go today, but I had too much to do. I found someone to watch the dog tomorrow while I go, so now I have to go get it done. My doctor's appointment is on the 12th of this month. My goal has been to be 80 pounds lighter than the last time I was in the office, and I think I will make it by the 12th. I was down 78 pounds last week, so even if I only lose a pound this week, I will be within spitting distance. I think my weight at my last appointment was actually higher than what I weighed when I started SP, so might even be over my goal. I will keep you all informed.
