I have been pretty bad about blogging. For a while, real life intervened and we had some worries. None of them came to pass, I'm very thankful for that. But even during that stressful time, I kept on eating normally and exercising, and that made me feel a lot better.
Other than that, driving is getting a little easier and I can sort of see that maybe at some point I'll actually be able to pass the test.
I did pass the German test, I just found out yesterday. Even though I will never need to prove a higher competence in the language for official purposes, now I'm motivated to study some more and actually be able to converse with real people!
Maintenance-wise, I'm still not quite there. The loss has slowed, but hasn't stopped yet. I think I'm close, though, as I'm losing less and less every week. I have not been tracking lately and it's been working out so far, but if I notice any signs of slipping I will start to track again.
I'm looking forward to this cold streak ending. Apparently it will snow tomorrow, a sign that the temperature will rise. It's nothing unusual if you've ever lived in MN or WI, but for central or southern Europe, it is certainly a little extreme. My daughter has had it with being cooped up inside, but it really is too cold to be outside for anything over 15 minutes.
