They are calling for a MAJOR snowstorm in the Philadelphia (and surrounding areas).
So as a native of this area, I am obligated to prepare for this event following our Snow Storm Code of Ettiquite and go out to the grocery store and stock up on bread and milk and other creature comfort foods in anticipation of being house bound for 1 day. Yes as silly as that may sound to you, everyone does it. Only thing is that I could not get to the store until 10 pm last evening, and damn it.. the ice cream case was cleaned out, the cookie aisle was bare, and there was barely a chip bag to be found.
So what did I do??? I grabbed some low fat cottage cheese, a few yogurts, and a bag of carrots. So glad no one was wrestling me to the ground for those treats!!
I actually left the store with DH, feeling pretty good.. my food basket was fairly healthy, but truth be told I do think DH threw some sort of snacky food in there. At one point, I did have a lovely section of Brie in my hands.. (thinking this may be snow storm worthy and that I might as well buy it) BUT I did put it back... So my fridge is stocked with healthy things, and that makes me feel good.
Still have not crossed that damn threshold of onderland, in fact the scale is up a bit 2 freakin pounds, but I think that maybe more water weight and lack of movementment else where in my body (if you know what I mean).
I have been doing my brisk walking.. and have been very good about my diet.. definetly keeping my fat g's in check. And the restriction is working for me.. so all is good.. just waiting for the scale to adjust to my acts of kindness to my body.
Other news on the home front, my mom is home from the hospital .. and doing well (thanks for asking Kristin :)
Hope you have a warm weekend.. and if you feel like shoveling.. drop me an email..I will be happy to send you directions!
