Time to pay the piper

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Thanks for the warm welcome yesterday. It was very touching and made me feel back "home" again.

I reset my weight tracker and added some updated photos. Accountability, yadda yadda. I tell you what. It's like I'm a first time user of this site. It took me forever just to do those two things! New features, new links, more advertisements.

Saw the doc today and blood pressure and levels are ok...still pre-diabetic but hypothyroid is in check. I'm set for go.

It's flipping cold and looks like we'll have our first snow before Thanksgiving this year...maybe as soon as Monday. Eeek. I went and bought winter boots this past weekend. They are sorely needed. My old ones are worn out and (TMI warning) fiercely reek. There was a sale so I got two pairs: some nice understated black ones and some Justin "gypsy" cowboy boots. I'm ready to go scrape ice off of my windshield now without freezing my toes. Last winter was so rough, I am on the front end of this thing and prepared.

Tonight my daughter is cheerleading a basketball game at her middle school. She made the cheer team this year and, as part of her three times a week practices, does *gasp* Crossfit! Good gracious, my child has outdone me. You should see her do burpees like they're nothing! It's so weird. All last year I tried to get her interested in fitness and now the tables are turned. She is a constantly moving machine and is regularly prompting me to "come stretch" or do some other physical activity with her. I am extremely grateful for that!

    The tables have turned! You now have an active child! That should be a great motivator. So glad you are back! Good for you!

    It's supposed to snow here on Friday. Way too early, even for someone who LIKES winter!

    I highly recommend installing Ad-block. I see almost no advertisements on my internet, not at Spark, not on Facebook, not on any pages...
