16 Months of Maintenance

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Nothing profound to report. Today marks 16 months of maintenance.

My body fat is in a good place. My lean mass is in a good place. My overall fitness is in a good, but not peak, place. And I'm happy. That is not profound... except that it is late February and all of that is true and for many, many, many years I could not have imagined saying any of that, let alone all of that, in the dead of winter.

Finished up the most massive of the units in my FNS course. Looking at the rest of the course I hope it will feel like a rock rolling downhill. Fingers crossed, anyway. If I can knock off a few more units in the next few weeks I will think about taking the first aid/cpr/aed certification I need should I want to pursue a training certification. Still MUCH more interested in the nutrition end of things than the exercise end of things though.

House still in good shape :-) Not perfect with the kids home on break but quite good.

On tap for the weekend -

Doctor's appointment for DD tomorrow combined with a trip to the science museum. DH will meet us in town for dinner. Not sure where we'll go yet... have a few interesting places in mind.

Before the storm hits, DH and I are going to go out to breakfast on Saturday. That's our February date and February is almost over. It's right next to the grocery store so we'll also do our shopping for our snow-bound meals. Hopefully there will be a movie or two that looks good... or else we can play games with the kids.

Sunday will be stormy. So not pleased to have a third weekend in a row marred by a snow storm. We will certainly end up 'trapped', unplowed, on our private road for a chunk of the day. Guess DS will have LOTS of time to tinker with his engineering science fair project!

Then back to school.... and routines.... next week. Another February break for the history books. We never travel for February break. The weather is too iffy (as this year's break bracketed by 2 snow storms shows). It's a good thing the kids don't mind a good chunk of nothing-to-do in the middle of the school year! (And one or the other always has a big project to work on.)

    emoticon on your maintenance success, and you look emoticon !

    I enjoy a snowbound day every now and then, but my back does not like shoveling anymore. Hope you can enjoy this next storm, and I hope it's the last of the season for you and Spring comes soon.
