I got out of my car to get the mail this afternoon and I saw the first hint of snow on my windshield! I love snow! I love snow days, I love two hour delays, I love bundling up with some hot chocolate, and I love taking walks in it.
Today was kind of a mini fresh start for me. I have been losing steam for my 10-10-10 challenge, so yesterday I spent a lot of time figuring out how I could get some excitement back. Part of today's plan was to get stuff done at night so I didn't eat. Well, that's done. I got my gym stuff ready for tomorrow, I cleaned the bathroom, I Swiffered the kitchen floor, and I planned my meals for tomorrow. And I even had dinner already! I decided to eat early tonight so that I could get to bed without feeling super full.
This morning I even managed to leap out of bed and get to the gym for a run. It felt great - I love this time of year when the clocks go back. It's actually light when I am looking out the gym window! Yahoo! It was either go this morning or drag myself out tonight. There is no way I was going to drag myself out tonight, so this morning it was. I'm sure glad I went... it's crappy weather and I would much rather be sitting in my sweats. I even hopped on the scale just to see what last week's carb-fest did to me, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that I hadn't gained anything. It may show up next week (ugh) but I think if I concentrate on my water and my nutrition this week that I should be ok.
I am ready for some couch time. And I don't feel bad - since I got a lot done right when I came home, I can take some time to relax. I will make my lunch tomorrow morning (I just pulled the marinara and it is thawing in the fridge), and the dishes are getting washed. The counter is clean...
