Still not motivated to do any strength training...

The deer have already stopped by for a visit. They at the little buddings off the top of the day lilies. I don't remember that ever happening before.

I hope you feel better soon, Lee.

I am having a hard time motivating still; I just can't seem to kick it into gear and I want to get back to my workouts before it's 80 degrees out and my thighs don't fit in my shorts.

I'm not sure what it is, but it has me home from work and taking stuff for pain and fever today emoticon
It is a beautiful sunny day, and I tried to go outside for a bit but it hurt my sinuses too bad (still chilly).

Sinus issues? Is it allergies, or are you struggling with humidity?

I'm still trying to pull my head out of the SAD-fog. It's getting a little better, bit by bit, but I want it all and I want it now!

I really have to start exercising before it comes time to pull out those capris and tank tops....I don't want to have to run screaming in horror....

Mellie~ That is a tough nut to crack. Know anyone who might be interested in co-renting the place with you?

Got back to exercising this weekend. I got 3 workouts in in 3 days. My complaint? IT HURTS ALL OVER!! emoticon

Thanks Dawn. There is no reason for us to have the upstairs and downstairs to ourselves. The upstairs has everything we already have except for bigger space & two more bedrooms. I am concerned about not having a stove. We have so many unanswered questions. I am hoping we can find out more tomorrow as my landlord is coming by to do some inspections again. I think moving is the way to go, but I hate to do it as we love everything about this place, the neighborhood, how close we are to everything (stores, friends, work).

Landlord dropped the bomb on us today that we need to move or find someone to rent the upstairs suite (it's been vacant 4 months) to share the rent with as our suite has been deemed illegal and they need to make it into one suite instead of the current two. We would also lose our stove and have to share it with those upstairs. We have 2-3 months. We have been here 4 yrs, we love this place, the neighborhood, our landlord is great, the rent is good, close to work for us both. This bites.

I want to open a window, go for a walk, not have to put boots on to take the trash out, and wear fewer layers.

I also want the ice gone!

My neighbor slipped at work and broke his ankle. I guess we will be taking care of his driveway and sidewalks for the rest of this winter's snow fall.

I can't wait until I can go barefoot again; as soon as it's nearing warm out I feel the need to bare those toes...my feet feel like they're suffocating in socks and shoes.

DS sprained his ankle last night; sent me a pic. I hate that he's in Texas. I wanna see for myself! And my mother called me at 1 am; she drove herself to the hospital because she thought she was having another heart attack (!). They admitted her but I'm waiting to hear if they actually found anything.

Warmer tomorrow with lots of emoticon The only word that brings to mind is "basement." emoticon

Yup, airing out the feet. Especially after a good foot bath with anti bac foot soak and some peppermint tincture in the water. They feel better today. I also need to wear fewer layers in my shoes & boots. emoticon Good lookin' out emoticon

If it wasn't for shoveling snow, I would have gotten no exercise at all over the last couple of weeks.

And I have some kind of itchy, red swollen toe fungus thing going on.

Yeah, as the winter drags on, other people start to feel it, too. We, however, get hit harder as spring draws near. I just can't wait for sunshine and warm; looks like 3 to 6 inches of lake effect snow today.

Just about every meeting I have the talk starts out with how very miserable this weather is AND how it is just beating us all down so badly. It is nice to know that we are not alone, and more people are getting a better understanding of what SAD feels like.

I know this wasn't a wvggc, but I'm putting it out there for all my comrades who aren't on SP emoticon

I wish I could stay home in this stuff, too! It's very hard to climb out of a soft, warm bed with fleece sheets and a down comforter, knowing what is going to greet me when I step out the door. And of course since the temps have been so low, no snow has melted. Ick.

My friend's son has only had 1 day of school since Feb 13th! Too much snow and too cold.

There needs to be some kind of policy about the country closing down - or at least some regions.

I am so ready to be using really bad words right now! My toes are really mad about the cold.

I went out and the cold caused the strangest freezing sensation in my throat! I can't remember that ever happening before. I had to fight the cough because I would keep inhaling gulps for frigid air! emoticon It sucked!!

No, Lee, we can't. We can have one or the other, but not both. It's our cosmic punishment for wrongs we did in previous lives.

Ugh. It's Monday; we've been cold and snowy this weekend with more of the same for the rest of the week. I'm really trying to keep it positive, but I really can't wait until there's sunlight and warmth on a consistent basis.

The prediction was 1 - 3 inches; we got that and maybe another 1 or 2.

I have an unexplained abrasion between my 2nd & 3rd toes of my left foot. I thought thought the pain was a little muscle strain (that is a whole other story), but I checked today and there were little scabs rubbing together down there. Really annoying emoticon

Well the blowing snow has arrived full force. Hopefully my husband will be willing to drive me to work despite it being crazy early in the morning. If not, I am not sure how I'll get there.

Headache, tired - napped 2 hours - feel the same. Just feel yucky. I know it's stress.

Just read the relationship advice now. Thanks Dawn. We made up pretty much right after the little spat, but it wasn't a good way to start the day.

Ate poorly yesterday and felt sick because of it. Been eating too much dairy! My stomach isn't a big fan. I need to change this.

Sounds like the wood is definitely the problem. Is it too fresh? Did it get damp (where do you store it?). I've found that some wood just is a pain to get to burn.

Spent yesterday alternating between zoning out on TV and shoveling. We had a good ol' fashioned blizzard. So of course I munched on comfort food all day and it shows.

Feeling like this depression is never going to lift. I started catching myself thinking I hate my life but I'm trapped in it. That's NOT going to help. So, I'll whine for a moment and then move forward.
Melly - Wanna feel better about the fight? Tell your hubby you love him (even though you may not be feeling it right now). Sometimes reminding yourselves why you're in this can help lift the tension/sadness of a fight.

So sorry to hear you're feeling that way Lee. And Dawn that sucks about your company becoming meeting heavy. I always disliked meetings.

I have SO MUCH to do today. Feeling a tad overwhelmed. I also am worried my parents (who are visiting tonight till Sun) and our cat won't get along. Started off the day with an argument with my husband. Blah.

I don't like meetings that are scheduled to begin after 6 and then get pushed back even further, and then still don't start on time. Because then they last way too late.

Not only do I have no motivation to exercise, I have no motivation to work on my business, socialize, cook.... I don't even really want to go through the motions to read or watch a video. Yeah, I know SAD & a bit of depression. It'll be over soon. My 1st gear will kick in and I'll start doing the summer body prep stuff.

They actually had a pistol...and I guess he didn't like that! She's crediting having a gun with saving their lives, but I honestly think the two of them could have easily overpowered that psycho without it if necessary. I'm just glad they're physically fine and getting the PTSD counseling that the sheriffs offer to crime victims.

I'm with you on the lack of motivation; I know if I start working out now I'll have a rockin' body by spring, but I can't seem to find the get up and go...it got up and went.

Ooo! Scary!! I'm glad they are alright. (Did they whoop the perpetrator's a$$?)

Again at the no energy point. Not motivated to exercise or do anything health related. I feel that it is just about time to start getting into lifting my weights and doing strength stuff; I'm just not "feelin' IT." :::sigh::: emoticon

Ugh; I'm not a morning person, either, so I'd be quite disgruntled if I went through all that and nobody showed!

Found out yesterday that a break-in and attempted murder I heard about on the local news was actually at an old friend's house; thankfully she and her BF are fine. Psycho broke in "to see if he was capable of murder". What's the world coming to?

Just everything ---

I was supposed to have a study group come over this AM. (I am not an AM person) So, I got up and dressed and went out and got goodies.


No one was able to make it. I'll just leave it at that.

Slept wrong the other night and since I have had such pain in my shoulder/neck. A pinched nerve I am sure of it. May need to see a doctor tomorrow. It is keeping me awake at night. emoticon

Sometime Saturday when I'd finally gotten enough rest, I realized just how bad I'd been in Minnesota. Email to the one; I'll apologize to the other in person tomorrow when he's visiting here. I'm extremely ashamed and embarrassed; it appears I'm extremely sensitive to sleep deprivation and become a monster. Time to work on improving my sleep habits!

Ohhhh, what a long post I could make today....

I'm afraid I made a very poor impression on our sister company/new owners in Minnesota. I hate to travel, and it was compounded by:

Arrived at our hotel at 11:30 Monday night (way late)
The hotel is very close to a highway; truck noise all night long
The heat in the room was too high; attempting to adjust did nothing but make it blow COLD air. The blower ran even if you turned it off, and it was LOUD. Therefore, I got very little sleep - broken snatches of 15 to 30 minutes at a shot.
I was suffering from the stomach flu all weekend last weekend, and when we arrived Monday, so I didn't eat much.
The hotel was basic...very basic; the beds weren't much.
All in all, this among other things meant I was not anywhere near my best; I was miserable. I'm sure nobody liked me much, because I didn't like me much either.

Doing my best...one day at a time.

Well, it's about time to come home now, right?!

The # on the scale is beginning to climb, I am seeing some changes in my midsection and in clothing fit. And for some odd reason I feel powerless to take action. (or is it that I am just too lazy to do what it takes?)

WTFITA?

Actually, I was just talking to BF on the phone as another one rumbled past. It made me laugh! I mean, seriously?! We teased one of the bosses and asked him which room at this hotel is our boss's favorite when he's out here working, and of course he gave us a funny look - our boss does NOT stay in this hotel!

Dawn - I hate when that happens!

Just feeling off kilter today.

Contract meeting got postponed.

Ended up fielding a call with another contractor about some discomfort with an ongoing project.

Didn't eat enough fruits & veggies today.

Cheap hotel room fifty feet from the thruway and trucks going all night. I think I slept for three hours last night. Can't wait to get home to my own bed tomorrow!

Feeling sick and I have to go downtown in an hour to see my therapist. Boo. At least it's warmer out today!

Have a good trip!

Can I get a little focus, and a few more hours added to the day?

Wow, I'm glad they let you continue, don't get me wrong. I'm just jealous. And make sure you're really "done" with the whole menopause thing, because I know people who ended up preggers at 48-50. I barely got through it at 26 and had absolutely no interest in doing it again at a later age.

I have to go to Minnesota for a two day business trip tonight. I really hope it goes well.
