Good morning everyone and happy Saturday to you all! Super cold and snowy today, not a lot of snow just the kind that bascially hangs around all day but does not amount to much.
I did not get up in time this morning to go to W/I and a meeting but I did do an unoffical step on the scale and it has me down .6 - totally unofficial and if I can manage it I will get to a meeting this week, worst case I will just go next Saturday.
Today starts a new week for me and I will be tracking closely and getting in exercise where I can. Don't feel well enough to go to the gym this weekend but will be walking the halls at work during the day even if it is just for the quick mile and will get to the gym when I can.... just not going to push it and will let mysefl fully recover before I jump back in with both feet. I really don't want to relapse for a third round with this... ugh.
Ok, so, enough of that, how is everyone doing? It looks like most of the country is super cold with the exception of Florida and I don't think we have anyone from there... LOL - Wish we did, I would have to go visit them and do my introduction in person
Luppy: A huge welcome to you!!! We are so glad to have you with us and look forward to getting to know you better. My SIL has Lupus, she has had it for most of her life and really struggles from the effects of it. You sound like a very active and productive person that stays busy and like the rest of us struggle to put ourselves somewhere at the top of our own to-do lists... you will fit in really well with the rest of us!
Judy: How are you doing? Are you working on a crochet blanket right now? I am going to try and make it to knitting class today since I have come as far as I can on my own on the socks that I am knitting and need help with the next step... I am really enjoying knitting them!
Bandit: congrats on the loss! I know that most any loss when you are struggling or just not feeling it is a wonderful thing so like you I will take my little .6 and try and build on it with what ever I can right now. I have not read the book that you mentioned but will look into it, I am almost totally out of reading material, I really plowed thru it while I was not feeling well.
Lizzie: Have a great time visiting your mom, when I spend time up north with my mom I do the same thing, find a meeting and attend when I can and also walk around her neighborhood when the weather allows. I still need to try the Latin Heat class at my gym, it is on my to do list and if I feel up to it I may try it Tuesday evening but like I said, I don't want to push too hard yet.
Life: You sound super busy! Take care of yourself so you don't end up too run down. I found it funny that one somethings that I have pointed out under the new plan are the same rather you pick low fat or full fat! English Muffins are one of those items... the light, which I have always bought are the same as the regluar now... 3 pts each... seems strange but I am still trying to figure it out... LOL.
Peanut: How are you doing? Have you guys been able to get outside at all to relieve some of the cabin fever? We are pretty much the same way here, especially the dogs! They are just so ready to get outside for a good romp session, I may try and get them to the park for a short walk this weekend but the cold air really is rough on my sinus infection so it may just have to wait.
Cherry: How are you doing? has everyone been able to get over their colds?
Well I need to be my butt in gear and get in the shower... I need to get to the grocery store today, we have some friends coming in tomorrow from out of town and will be coming to the house for brunch so I need to figure that out.
Have a great day everyone!
