Lost 1/2 the water weight I gained, and feeling a lot better. I did my 90 minute walk and lifted weights for 30 minutes yesterday. Ate on plan, and got to bed early after watching Biggest Loser.
Today I am going to have to walk to the gym, and then do my 90 minute walk there. The gym is about 1/2 a mile from my house, so an extra mile, but I could use more exercise. The problem is, it's 1 degree outside ( -17 C ). I have a hoodie, and gloves, so I may have to jog a bit to stay warm...lol. Last winter, we never got below 20, but we are supposed to have cold, and snowy the next 5 days. I have to walk because my brother is doing a 2 hour tutoring session, as well as 1-5 in class. Then he has some extra credit assignment that lasts till 6:30, and I don't want to be walking till 9 p.m. I should have had him drop me off, and just walked home, but in the time he warmed up his car, I can make it to the gym. Plus if I go this afternoon, it may get up to 10 degrees. I will have to wait to dry off after my shower, so my hair doesn't freeze on the way home, but luckily I keep my hair short, so it will dry quickly.
The maid took the day off, and no laundry was done yesterday. Unfortunately, I am the maid..lol. So I have to do 2 loads today. I had eggs for breakfast with mushrooms, and lunch and dinner will be 12 ozs of b/s chicken thighs, 1 can NS diced tomatoes, and 1/2 cup diced white onion with a Tbsp of olive oil to cook it in.
I found some curry and cumin on the top shelf of my cupboard. I was cooking meals with my brother, and he hated both, so I stopped using as many spices. Now though, he is doing well on his own, and I can cook while he is at school, and eat what I want. Next week, I am buying a new spice to use.
Other than that I will be reading. I finished book 4 by Alex Berenson, The Midnight House, and just started book 5, The Secret Soldier. Book 6 is The Shadow Patrol, which I also have. All 6 are CIA/ spy stuff, but newer Afghan/ Taliban bad guys etc. My brother read them in 2 days, which left me 19 days to finish them..lol. Tonight I have 2 sitcoms to watch.. Go On, and The New Normal, and the Pistons play the Orlando Magic.
That is all I have to do today, maybe clean my kitchen, but I will probably put that off till tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!
