Mornin' all! Wow, at 8:00, there's already 7 posts...you people are early
Loved the lunar eclipse...and the way it brought my neighbors out of their houses so we could visit and laugh together. We have an amazing neighborhood full of wonderful people, but in the winter it's so cold that we barely get a chance to wave at each other before heading for the warmth of our houses. It was crystal clear last night and we were amazed at how many stars we could see without the moon's light. When I went to bed, the eclipse was over, and there was an actual patch of moonlight
on the floor of our hallway from the skylight above. Wow! That's one bright
, I love
the name Jade for your dog--how sweet! Yeah, our pup has cabin fever too. We've been throwing her toys down our long, skinny hallway for her to chase and fetch...it keeps her busy and active. But she can only do it for so long, and after a nap, she's circling the walls again!
Congrats on the loss--I know how it feels when you're losing the same weight again, but you're going in the right direction, and that's powerful!
, it's pretty stormy out there! We haven't gotten much.
Hope you can stay home in the next storm...
, I'm so sorry about your poor foot! I don't know what you'd attach it to, but last year I saw some press on toenails!
You never know...
I hope you can use the bar again soon!
, I'm so sorry that you're feeling so down.
You know, whether you believe in The Secret or not, it does seem to be true that a negative frame of mind can make less positive things come into your life. Try to focus on the positive things (like that wonderful lap NSV...I still can't sit on DH's lap without making his legs go numb!
) and look for changes in your life--can you go up stairs without breathing hard? Can you exercise more or faster or longer? Can you do fun things, like hiking or dancing, that you couldn't do comfortably before? After all, that 200 is just a number on a scale. If you have to, try weighing in kg, or measuring in the English method of "stones" (no joke!) so that the numbers are different and don't frustrate you. Also, think about whether you're "ready" to go below 200. I made it to "ONEderland" several years ago and then bounced around between 198 and 203 for over a year and a half. Everytime I'd get below 200, I'd overeat till I was above it again. I think it really scared me and I just wasn't ready to get that low. Can't say more...still working on that, but it's something worth thinking about.
BTW, are you measuring yourself? It's amazing how much it can help to see how many inches you've lost. Sometimes the scale doesn't move at all, but the inches do!
Off to make some tea and oatmeal. My throat is SO dry this morning, no matter how much water I drink...it's like I spent last night in the desert with a bag full of dessicants in my mouth!
We have a humidifier turned up as high as it can go on our furnace, too!
Had a really good time at Faith Formation last night, though my back was hurting me in the pews. I brought an orange and slice of cheese for the break time, which was a good idea since those goodies looked yummm-ee!
They mentioned that next week they'll have a treat to eat for all of us, during their talk. I hope I can figure some way around that...
Last day of work over break week. I'm hoping to get some niddly things done. Off to the gym after work, unless my friend calls. She has a tiny dog and we have a tiny dog and we've been hoping that we could get them together for a "playdate!" She loves to walk her dog but feels uncomfortable walking her at night, so I offered to walk with her. I hope it works well--our dog is very amiable, but I've never tried walking her with another dog. We'll see!
We'll either do that after work today or sometime tomorrow.
A friend of mine who was due March 4 with her first child, is going to now deliver by C-section on 2/26. Her baby is huge (over 9 pounds at 35 weeks!) and she's been tested extensively for gestational diabetes, but doesn't have it. Apparently, she and DH just breed big 'uns!
Anyways, there's no way she can have her little boy naturally, so they're scheduled for next Tuesday. I'm SOOO excited for them!
If I have time tomorrow between the dog walking and possible coffee date with a friend, I'll see if I can go over to her place and help her get things ready.
Hope everyone has a great day!!!
