Not only did my husband and I make it to town yesterday so I could register as a candidate, but we went on to a nearby CITY and had a late LUNCH in a RESTAURANT.
(Thanks for your good wishes about my filing, here and on Facebook and Instagram. I appreciate it!)
We found a Chinese buffet right after Christmas that has an amazing selection of paleo-friendly food. Lots of steamed vegetable choices, non-sugary chicken entrées, plenty of fresh fruit. My husband is a big eater and loves buffets. I've learned, over the years, to realize it's not necessary to eat my money's worth. (That was a hard one to learn!) So we're both happy … and I didn't have to cook dinner (I can always fend for myself without cooking) because he truly eats a whole days' worth of food – and maintains his weight.
Mostly because he maintains his workout schedule. Heh.
One of my flight instructors used exercise as a way to eat whatever he wanted. He was a runner, was skinny as a rail and ate like a PIG. I guess I just don't love exercise that much. I'd rather eat and exercise moderately than be a fitness bulimic.
But I digress.
The wind is fierce right now, although the temperature is, surprisingly, not that low at 21° F. And the snow is coming down sideways.
We might make it to the post office later today, but I don't think we're going to get much further than that.
We'll continue working on the decluttering/organizing project we started this month, and I'll cook something yummy for dinner and it's a great day to knit. Other than that – time to hunker down. Again.
