Today is my second sick day in a row. I think I was out of bed for 2 or 3 hours yesterday. It might not be much better today - my head just hurts too much to be upright. My hubby brought home the nasty head cold that was going around his lab and now it's making it's way through the family!
The weather here in Pittsburgh isn't helping much, either. Saturday, I sat through my 10yo's softball game in flannel lined jeans, long sleaved t-shirt, sweat shirt, winter coat, hat, gloves, boots and a blanket (it was about 38, windy, and sleeting for the game). Wednesday for my 13yo's softball game, I was in a t-shirt, capris and sandals (it was 83 and sunny!). The best part was they both won!
When I've been eating at home, I measure most of what I'm eating - unfortunately, with all the softball going on, we've been eating out a lot. So, I order the healthiest thing on the menu (lots of either sirloin, chicken, or shrimp) and split the serving in half. I've been walking the dog when I can - a couple of times a week, but I'm WAY behind on the videos for the Spring Challenge that I joined (again!). I've been so busy at work, that I'm easily logging more than 10,000 steps a day even before I take the dog out. I'm hoping my weight at least stays the same for my next weigh in. So, I'm making small steps towards progress, but I need to get more consistent.
