HAPPY NEW YEAR, my friends!
Sorry I've been MIA for a couple days. I spent Thursday morning and afternoon and Friday morning and afternoon cleaning. The place looks great! On Thursday, DH and I went to his aunt and uncles and played cards until about 10 pm, then came home. As usual, I didn't stay awake until midnight...but I made it 'till 11:30 until I just couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. We figured it was midnight where Mel lives, so we wished each other Happy New Year and went to sleep. Last night, DH and I went out to dinner with friends at a wonderful restaurant. The restaurant was originally built in the 1800s, but it has newly renovated but still has the ol' time warmth and cozyness! After dinner, we came back to our house and watched movies and then played some Wii games. We all had a blast.
Today, I'm pretty darn tired...so I've been pretty much relaxing. Except I did go to the grocery store, do laundry and do a Wii Fit workout. Actually, I'm not feeling all that great today, which is why I'm planning on taking it fairly easy today and tomorrow. It's VERY cold out...I think the HIGH temp today was 4, it's supposed to get well below 0 tonight and be chilly most of this week I think.
So after grocery shopping and filling the bird feeders, I decided to stay indoors.
Happy - Thanks for setting up the new thread! I'm definitely going to jiggle and jettison my junk right off. I'm going to try and keep the house clean at least through this week so I don't have much to do in preparation for my niece's visit. Hopefully, I can keep it clean for a long time though. 101 hot spots? That's a ton of cleaning...but I guess if I added up all the spots that need cleaning/organizing and junk jettisoning, it might be 101. Mel's right....don't overdo all that cleaning. You need to rest that foot. REST, ICE, ELEVATION AND COMPRESSION.
Mel - Congrats on the weight loss! That's wonderful!!
Great job on the pedaling!! So sorry to hear Jen is having sinus troubles. Sending healing
Ceejay - You deserve a congrats on the pedaling too! You Go Girl!! Good for you for setting yourself on an eating plan that works for you. Hope you didn't get too much snow. Too funny that you're trying to find stuff other than football on TV. I'm watching college football even though I don't normally (unless it's Wisconsin playing) just because I know that football season is nearly over (1 more month) and I'll be going through football withdrawals.
Renae - Great to hear from you! Bummer that your guy has to leave for a job....but you do know the best parts. Enjoy! Congratulations on your walking goal...and for doing cross country skiing.
Annie - I hope you and your mom are doing well. Are you getting to spend time with DD and DS?
Patty - So nice to hear from you! Glad you're enjoying some relaxing time.
My steps to jettisoning jiggly junk are to:
1. Journal EVERYTHING I eat.
2. Eat 5 servings of fruits or veg daily
3. Limit sweets to once per week (not counting the sugar free cocoa I put in my coffee in the morning).
4. Wii Fit for at least 30 minutes 5 days per week (it gives you a bit of a sassy bad time if you don't workout every day).
5. Go to the gym at least once per week.
I'm going to go start dinner, fold laundry and then get under the covers to relax for the evening.
Love and big Happy New Year hugs to all,
