It is now about 4:00AM and I have been up for about two hours. This chilly house causes me to return to bed for warmth after about four hours of being up and around. The temperature outside is currently 23 degrees and I can hear a wind blowing. I talked with my roommate last evening and we agreed that I would purchase two more radiators for the house. That should warm things up a bit for me. I am getting tired of blue fingers. When I cook I have to stop fairly regularly to warm my hands. It will be nice to be warm again.
This cold is wrecking havoc with my sleep schedule. I have an electric mattress pad and I can climb into bed to get warm. I use that time in bed to read and since reading is my method for slowing down to fall asleep, guess what happens. I will sleep for four or five hours and then all nice and warm I'll get up to work around the house or play on my computer.
There is one real advantage to this weird schedule and to the root cause of it. I am not spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen and am eating considerably less. The menus have changed too. I can't get out of the house so I've completely run out of fresh produce. Well, I have one apple left and I'll eat that today and tomorrow. Getting enough vegetables is becoming quite a challenge, but I like challenges.
I just copied one of the blogs for today, "10 Tips to Lose 10 Pounds." The article is very inspiring and the comments from SparkMembers are great. I especially liked this particular blog and now have it where I can refer back to it as needed.
My BS is staying stable around the high eighties to high nineties. Considering the way i've been living and eating recently I am doing fairly well. I hope I am losing some pounds. I wanted very much to weigh in yesterday at TOPS but I couldn't get out to my car to go to the meeting. It is supposed to snow yet again today. Why did I choose to live up here in the boonies?
That is enough for the time being. I'll probably talk with you again later.
