Freezing in Texas!

Thursday, December 03, 2009

It feels like yesterday when we were having to deal with too many days of 100+ temperatures and now tomorrow we will be lucky to get over freezing. The weather here is so bipolar! We are supposed to get snow. I grew up in Maryland, and snow is no big deal...except here. The last time we had snow (a dusting) was Valentines Day of 2004. The time before that? 1986 or something like that (I wasn't living here at the time). To put the whole thing into more perspective: I was engaged the last time it snowed and I was a little less than 2 years away from getting my bachelors degree. I'm supposed to go to TOPS tomorrow morning, and being "dues day" and me being Treasurer, I hate to not be there. On top of that I am fairly certain that I have a loss for the week. So hopefully the snow will hold off until later in the morning. I'm an experienced snow driver, but a lot of people around here are not, plus I live off a little winding county road, so I'll have to keep track of what is going on before I leave my house.

I'm sitting here still debating whether I feel like exercising or not. Let me reword that: I'm debating whether I am going to exercise or not. I usually take Thursdays off, so I guess I'll change into my pj's, eat dinner, and then curl up on the couch and watch Survivor. Right now as I am stretched out on the sofa with my laptop, one of my kitties has slung herself over my legs (I think she is feeling the heat come from the back of my laptop!)

I was watching a show that I had taped on my DVR yesterday called The 650-lb. Virgin that came on the Discovery channel. He now weighs 250 lbs, which is awesome. There is a sequel that centers on his search for a girlfriend as he has little social skills due to the fact that he kept to himself when he was obese. Evidentally he lost his virginity to a friend (not a special someone) so I wonder what they will call the next follow-up show? Then I think that if this is what I am most worried about at this time, that things can't be so bad. Anyway, he was talking to his friend/trainer and they agreed that losing weight was not hard. HUH???? Are they serious???? I guess that since he had his own personal trainer (who ended up being a roommate as well), so he was living with his own personal trainer, who I believe was doing this pro bono, then, yeah, maybe it isn't so hard. I wish I could have my own personal trainer, especially for free. I guess the actual act of losing weight is not hard if you do all the right things, but then all the mental stuff comes into play. I was just somewhat amazed that he would say this as he'd probably still be 650 lbs. if he had to do it all on his own. Again, if this is what I'm concerned about right now, then things aren't too bad here.

Guess I just felt like yakking!

    :) I live in Las vegas and while it's not supposed to snow here it has gotten cold so I completely understand you when you say it's hard to go from the 100's to what we consider cold!

    Have a nice night watching your shows, maybe consider adding Flashforward, it's pretty addictive!
