I am off work until Tuesday!! Even though there is a lot of snow on the ground, I am enjoying my time off.
Today I did the Biggest Loser workout and also biked for 40 minutes. Wow, when you don't work you have a lot of time to exercise. I really needed some time off since I wasn't able to take any during the Christmas holiday. I really haven't had a solid week off since my son got married over a year and a half ago, so it's nice to get a few days to myself.
Tomorrow I need to grocery shop since I haven't done that since early last week before the big storm. Then going to get my hair cut and then come home and tackle my art room that I keep picking away at. It got rather messed up at Christmas, so it's time to reorganize and declutter it. Working in there is a challenge, but I do enjoy being there.
Now for some bad news, got on the scale and I am up a pound. Not quite sure how that happened because I log in my food every day, so need to really be careful even more so now. I have upped my exercise a lot in the last 2 weeks, so not sure what this is all about.
Oh well, as long as I am eating healthy, I figure that's a good thing even if the scale isn't showing a loss. I just don't want it to show another gain.
Hope everyone is having a blessed evening.

Nothing too new to report. Today was the 'ole' birthday. I am closer now to 60 then I am to 50, but hey -- I never thought when I was younger that I would live this long, ha, ha.
Anyway, this will be short since it's been a long day. We got another 6 inches of snow, Federal Government is shut down and I doubt that too many places will be open tomorrow, so today was a snowed-in day for my husband and I. On a good note, I stayed within my calorie range and still managed to do 30 mins. of cardio.
Hopefully tomorrow will be better weather and the sun will shine. Thank you all for the birthday wishes and goodies. I just love all of my SP friends -- you all are the best!!! Thanks for making the day more special.

I am working from home this week and while I normally enjoy that, we are really busy, so I ended up working a 10 hour day.
The good news is that I was still able to get over 11,000 steps on my pedometer. I took a 5 minute break from my computer every 30 minutes and walked around the living and dining room. Tonight I walked around every time there was a commercial on TV. Wow, some of those commercial times seem really long too.
We are to get 10-18 inches more of snow starting tomorrow night on top of what is already on the ground, which last snowfall gave us 36 inches. Now we are worried about the roof holding this much snow at one time. I will be glad to see winter leave for sure.
Hope everyone is having a great evening.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who has sent me goodies and emails in the past week. I haven't been as active on SP as I usually am. Partly because I was so busy at work and then with the storm, I was busy making sure we had supplies.
We lost power from 2 AM until 4PM the next day, so that meant no computer time during the day and then by evening I was exhausted. We got over 30 inches of snow and today we finally got shoveled out. One of our friends had a snow blower but it took over 4 hours just to get our driveway, front walk and some of our deck cleared.
Again, thanks for the support. I am not sure how my weigh-in will be. I seem to want to eat a lot when the snow comes -- maybe a preservation instinct kicks in, I'm not sure.
Anyway, the good thing is that I will be working from home this next week, so won't have to go into the office unless they really need me to. Our secondary roads have only one passable lane in them, so not sure how travel to work would be. The major roads are fine.
Again, thank you all and I will send each of you an individual thank you this next week. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
