I have been regularly waking up at 4:30 lately. I can usually go back to bed but I figured it was a good sign to hit the gym. So I am already sitting 8k steps for the day from shaking it. This week has been good, been eating less, staying under 1800 calories even! Seeing the forecast and knowing we are getting a few days in the 50's is just a good mood lifter! I am so ready for long dog walks with my podcasts again! Come in spring, we want you, we love you!!!
I have been making a big effort to cut down on my coffee and cut out my fake creamers lately. For the past 5-6 years every morning I pour 2.5 cups of coffee cover coffee mate and then ice it. Maybe I can still do it once a week. It's just such chemical crap in those creamers. Hah so is ice cream, but then again I don't eat ice cream every morning. So ya 1.5 cups of coffee black is what I am doing! I started it cuz when you drink 3 cups of coffee then get in the car and have no idea where to go to the bathroom is kinda crappy. So now I just figured good to continue 1/2 the amount of liquid in the AM. I can drink it later. New habits are good!
Edit: Found a homemade powdered creamer from natural ingredients and I happen to have everything in my house to try this!
Edit X2: I made it, it worked!! Thanks for the idea Danielle!
Our cat Joel has been bringing his friend to the door lately. Everytime I let Joel in, his friend is standing behind him like "me too?". He doesn't look thin, looks like someone is taking care of him. He looks pretty young as well. I deem his name Dale! My dogs hate the idea of any cat in the house besides our own. So when they see him, they start going crazy.
Here is my semi light winter coat I got the other day.
Have a good day you guys!
