Snow


This week we have had lots of snow! The good: forced rest, lots of coffee, staying home enjoying family and getting things done here. The not so good: no walking, missing doctor's appointments, and loads of comfort cooking and baking. I tend to make lots of homemade soups... some healthy and full of veggies and protein, others creamy or carby... and homemade bread or rolls to go with it. It's good stuff! We also had a birthday with cake, and Valentine's Day with cupcakes and cookies. I used up a large bag of apples from fall to make a big pan of apple crisp, too. I crave baked potatoes and mac and cheese when I am cold, but I do add things like broccoli and steak to a small potato or put butternut squash in my mac and cheese to up the nutritional content. But the net result is no weight loss, still.

We are going out of town on vacation in a couple weeks to someplace warm and sunny! I expect that to be a very healthy break with plenty of activity and a switch to more summertime foods. I am going to maintain or lose a few between now and then, and expect to come home even lighter and with a renewed drive to eat healthy and be active. I'm almost completely healed from my car accident now and have very few restrictions left so am building back my strength with exercises and doing more at home.

I can't wait for spring! The snow is pretty but I am ready to move on and go forward.
