Snow Day!

One plus of living in a bedroom community outside of where you work is you are restricted by road conditions. So today there is a blizzard and our highway has travel not recommended. So I'm stuck at home. SNOW DAY! Woo hoo!

In reality I probably could get to work, we've got our new 4x4. But the road conditions are bad. And the dept of highways said "travel not recommended" so I'm just following their guidelines. I feel guilty about it, but then I don't, then I do. It's been a rough morning. Haven't been able to enjoy it yet. It's supposed to clear up this afternoon so if it does, then I'll go in. What should I call this on my time sheet? Sick? I don't want to use vacation for it.

Anyway. I'll try to enjoy it until 1:00 and then check again.

So I totally love that I'm getting new readers! or at least new commentors. Way back when I started this blog I would love to have anybody read this and checked my counter every day. Well my self esteem must have improved because I haven't checked that in ages, then the other day got a glimpse of it, wowsa there's a lot of you out there! Not all of you have commented yet so feel free, particularly if you have a blog, I love getting to know you! And feel free to ask me questions if you want to know more about what I'm doing or eating or whatever (though really I'm not an expert at all)

Speaking of eating. Rough weekend. I was kind of bi-polar. One second eating mini chocolate bars (I hate you hubby for buying these) the next working out. Planning for bathing suit wearing in 2 weeks while eating cinnamon buns. Dumb. I hate not being busy on weekends. I just eat. From now on I need to make very concrete plans or activities for weekends.

This morning has been a bit of a struggle as well. Trying to not eat the cinnamon buns I made for work (well not all of course, but trying not to eat any). I made some green tea so we'll see how that holds me over. (ps- the lipton green tea mix, like crystal light singles, is AWESOME!)

ok not much to say. Gonna check the highways and then do something fun, start enjoying my snow day!

Hi Randi!
I had a bad weekend too. I wasn't bi-polar though. I just ate whatever I wanted to and didn't even think to work out. :( For some reason whenever I have a bad diet day I throw in the towel until the following Monday - not a good habit to have!
I hope that you enjoy your snow day - its nice to get to stay home sometimes.

for some reason i love the smell of cinnamon buns... but then the taste doesn't really do it for me.

I hope you are enjoying your snow day! I'm hoping we have another one soon! Or like last year we had a "its too cold to go to school day!" Gotta love those!!

Wow, it really looks like everyone was having insane weather today. Hoepfully you just got snow, and not the antarctic-type weather they got in alberta!

The boredom munchies always seem to get the best of me too. I try my hardest to stay busy on weekends!

So jealous!! The roads out here were even really bad yesterday morning but I still made it to my awful dentist appt. Our poor little Mazda 3 was sliding all over the place. There were a lot of cars off the road too.
We have begun looking for a small SUV. I think so far the Hyundai Santa Fe is in the lead. You'll have to keep me posted on what you thinkg of yours (although yours would be like twice the size!)
The pics are awesome and you look fantastic (Are you crazy? That white shirt isn't at all small on you and if it rides up, it just gives you a chace to show off your awesome shape!)
I have a ways to go before bikini time. At least another 15 lbs. I've even been thinking about doing SFL (Simply for Life, is it nation wide? Do you have one out there?) for a few weeks to get my weight loss jump started. The first 2 weeks is just so hard though! But last time I did it I dropped like 9 lbs in 2 weeks! It's a lot of super healthy eating with zero treats. Hmmm I dunno. Advice?

PS Sorry this comment is mostly about me, when I really should be talking about how much you rock! haha
