This is ridiculous

And, adding insult to injury, we’re not supposed to get out of the 30s all week. Brrrrr!

I walked two miles in 35 minutes at a 7 percent incline yesterday morning. The belt tends to slip when it’s cold (the treadmill is in our office on the second floor of the garage, which we only heat when we’re in it), but stays steady when the walking surface is inclined, so that factored into my plan. I thought I should keep it short since I haven’t really done much of anything for the past couple of weeks.

Since I’ve been home I’ve dropped two pounds – four-tenths of a pound per day. Heh. That would be 8.4 pounds by the end of the month, if I could keep up that pace. But we all know that fresh fat leaves our bodies more easily than the old stuff that’s been hanging around for a while.

I’m in party mode again; I’ve done a little shopping for Tuesday’s inauguration celebration but I need to get the rest of my supplies today and tomorrow. Sunday, of course, is reserved for football. The Manning boys are out of it, but I’ll still watch until the bitter end. And by the end of next week, we’ll have a remodeled master bathroom – if I can find time to go get those supplies.

The fun never stops.

ETA: I totally forgot it was Friday – so no quote post today. I’ll make it up to you, though, I promise!

Oh, I love the Manning boys! I was at UT when Peyton was there, and Eli is a sweet little god in MS, so yeah, the playoffs aren't quite as fun this year.

Hopefully it will warm up soon!

I'm sick of this cold too. I wanted to move more of my stuff over and it's way too cold. I'm just glad you have your power on; my parents lost power for about 6 hours yesterday. (Luckily, it happened right after Dad made coffee and he put it in a thermos. No coffee AND no heat, that would have been bad.)

Can you put a space heater or some other gizmo near the treadmill?

Hey don't give up on the Manning boys yet . . . saw they going up against the tennis Williams sisters for an orea eating contest.

I swear Peyton could have his own comedy show.

Stay warm.

Still sleepy - meant Oreo. Duh.
