This time of year is my least favorite thing about living in Michigan. The weather is cold. It looks blah outside with no green to speak of. Spring is still too far away.
The good things are there is no snow (right now, anyway) and it's staying light a little tiny bit longer every day. I am no longer driving home in the complete dark, but at twilight.
Driving at twilight is kind of scary, though, because the deer are more active and I am always afraid one is going to dart in front of my car. I'm hearing more than the normal amount of stories about people hitting deer. They must be particularly active right now.
Diet is going good. I've lost 4 lbs total so far (in three weeks). I am not following the diet exactly like I am supposed to, but I have given up carbs long enough now for it to kill my appetite, so eating smaller portions has not been a problem.
Exercising is still a issue, especially because it's too cold and dark to walk outside when I get home from work. This morning I had every intention of getting up at 5:00 and jumping on my treadmill for 1/2 a hour. Unfortunately, I woke up at 2:00 and could not go back to sleep until almost 4:00 so when the alarm went off at 5, I just kept hitting snooze for another half hour. Oh well, I need my sleep and there's always tomorrow morning!
Rich and I both had birthdays already this month. Went to dinner with Chris and Marissa one weekend and Shauna and Brad the next!
That's all the exciting news for now.
Until next time....
