Uff Da! Another Christmas party tonight.....hopefully the last one. As usual, I ate too much, but a lot of if was veggies and steak, so not quite as bad as it could have been....no sweets at this party, and I avoided the free drink....just had diet coke.
Work was really slow today, which is good as one co-worker went home sick at noon. There are only 6 of us in the clinic lab here. I got a start on doing some "catch up" jobs from last month.
After work today the whole family (three of us) went to the fitness center for a quick workout before getting back for the party. I tried to push myself a little more and get a minimum of a half mile walked in as short a time as I could. I think I did it in about 20 minutes today, but boy was I tired. I usually take closer to 25 to 30 minutes to water walk a half mile. At least I feel like I worked off some of the extra calories I consumed at the party.
We are supposed to be getting a big storm sometime soon...it was RAINING(in January in MInnesota) when we came home from the party! It is supposed to get colder and turn to snow later and become a real big mess tomorrow.....not looking forward to going to work. Most of my co-workers do not live in town and have to drive around 30 miles to get here.....hope that some of them make it. Could be a long day if only the two in town workers get to work tomorrow.
I see it is already getting late, so I will hit the hay and pray for better weather than is being predicted. Lynel
