We didn't get anywhere near the snow they called for yesterday, thank goodness, and the bitter cold has passed for the time being. I can thank the extreme cold temps for backing off what would have been an all nighter lock in with the youth on Friday night. Instead we just got together for a few hours to eat and for games, music, and a speaker. Even getting home at 11pm I was exhausted. I don't think I could have made it through all night.
I feel like a slacker for Saturday, but I did still need to go shovel a few times. I suspect this is why I've been slightly sore lately - all of the shoveling. I also got several loads of laundry out of the way and took a nap - like I said, Friday night still wore me out.
I did get up and get moving today, so I made it to church and then caught up for a bite to eat with Beff, whom I haven't seen in what feels like forever. Then I did a little shopping before heading home. I fought off the want to nap again today.
For the first time in a few weeks I got a legit workout in today. It was only a half an hour, but I'm counting it as it was entirely on the elliptical. I guess my motivation got a little bit of a kick in the rear today after I got brave. While I was out at TJ Maxx I decided to see how far I was from a size 10 in jeans. There was muffin top, but those babies buttoned without a struggle. It's crazy to me. When I lost way more weight in NC (I was about 30lbs lighter than I am today) I had just gotten into a size 12. So what gives?
