So it's almost time for the December wrap-up, but with school and work, life was crazy the last few weeks! Today is my forst day "off," and I'm spending it with you, Sparkblog...
Weighed myself this a.m., and am up a couple pounds (134), but no big deal- between the office parties and our friends visiting in November, this was bound to happen. I think I've been pretty good about allowing for splurges and not blowing it by balancing with lighter meals and long hikes every week. Hopefully, my December wrap-up will report that I am back to hovering at 130-132, my comfort zone...
In November, my very good friend "Poshy" came to visit with his gf Eileen, and we met her cousin and his bf who live nearby (they are awesome). I made a big Hawaiian breakfast before a long hike:
For Thanksgiving, we went to Omaha, and I didn't eat the state of Nebraska. I did, however, kind of meet Warren Buffet. Here we are at Berkshire Hathaway:
I wrapped-up the work/school year by going bowling with my student workers:
One of my students gave me a lei (Hawaii is so cute):
All in all, a busy month (but good).
I hope all of you are still fighting the good fight. It is really freaking hard to take care of yourself when you are over-worked, underpaid/appreciated, and the holidays throw stupid amounts of excess stress and calories at you... Hang in there, kittens.
