Snow days

Sunday, February 03, 2013

My weekend has been spent inside. We got enough snow to keep me housebound. I am really ok with that. I didn't have plans anyway. I really haven't been inspired to do much, sadly. Sooo... I mostly planned for the coming week and crocheted. I do love to watch old movies so I have been catching up on that while I crochet. I managed to make a hat and scarf set for a little girl and started a purse for my daughter.
As for my weight loss journey...... I have been so blessed to not even think about it. I just LIVE it day to day. Staying on track with my daily guidelines and drinking water. I do need some form of exercise. However, I do not live in a place where walking would be safe. Gotta think of something to do indoors that will not kill my back. I would love to start swimming again. Needless to say, I can't do that at home lol.
Tomorrow is weigh in day....and I am experiencing the same old feelings. Dread and anticipation. Have I lost? Have I gained? Tomorrow will tell the tale.
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and may God bless you in the coming week.

    Thank you so much everyone for your comments.

    Good advice MYDOGOWNSME... I am actually thinking about getting two dogs in the near future. OR, I may get a chimpanzee... I'm undecided at the moment emoticon

    Check out some walk at home videos. Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone has some great ones. :) Most of them are quite easy, gives you low impact cardio and takes up very little space to use. :) HUGS!

    If it weren't for the dogs I don't think I'd leave my apartment on the weekends. Thankfully they make me get up and walk around. Maybe you should look into getting a dog... emoticon Sorry I couldn't resist!

    I'm so glad I live in an area with 4 seasons. Snow is so many varieties. Last week it got so warm, we were able to be out without jackets. Not so this week...dipped way below freezing. Today was sunny; that was a plus.

    Mellie, before I got my treadmill I would walk all around the inside of my house from room to room just as if I were outside on a walk. We have an upstairs so I would walk all through the downstairs and then walk up the stairs and make a loop around the upper part of the house and back down. Anything that you can do that causes movement is beneficial to you. Just get up and move, even if it is walking in place. Leslie Sansone has some good DVD's called "Walk Away the Pounds". Something like that would be helpful as well. I used one of her programs for years and it gave me a good walking workout without going anywhere! emoticon emoticon

    Well join the club. We are on vacation in Texas for a month and we just got here on Friday. It was a week of traveling, staying in motels, not getting enough liquids and eating out. I am just dreading my weigh in tomorrow. Yes, I brought my scale from home and also my kitchen food scale to keep me on track. I start fitness tomorrow at a gym located about a mile from the condo that we are staying in so at least I can walk there and back. Wish me luck.

    This weather has always been a killer for me when it comes to sweets. I LOVE to bake and especially in the winter. I could bake something "good for me", but I know me, and I would wind up eating the entire thing lol. SO, the best way to avoid that is to just NOT do it. I used to buy a product called "No Pudge" brownies. They were AWESOME. I particularly loved them because you could make an individual serving. It's a low cal-low fat brownie mix that you mix with non-fat vanilla yogurt and pop in the microwave. Excellent for a treat......however, I really have to exercise control when that mix was in the house LOL. I should see if they still sell that. I could only ever find it at Kroger. Its been a few years since I bought it. Next time I go to the grocery, I'll see if they still have it.

    Hey, you look familiar. Ha!
    I am anticipating a lackluster weigh-in. I got into sweets yesterday and that caused me to go from there to no man's land. I know better. And I cannot say that the emoticon made me do it. This is not my first rodeo though and I will stay more alert in upcoming weeks. Hoping you do surprisingly super!
