Weighty Wednesday -- Status Quo

Because I'm weighty and, yes, it is Wednesday.

I missed my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday because my hubby took my car to work. We have two cars, but my car is the only one that can handle being driven on sleet and snow.

I'm sure I missed a great meeting!

This winter weather is playing havoc with my exercise schedule. This time of year our high outside temps are supposed to be in the high 40's, but as I type this the local temperature is 16 degrees--with enough wind to drop the 'feels like' temperature to -5 below zero.

Brrrr!

As I've mentioned before, I don't mind the cold, but I DO mind the wind. The one time I tried to walk in the cold wind, I nearly got frostbite on my fingers. And, yes, I do ski, but allow numerous hot cocoa breaks in between runs!

So I've tried to come up with new ways to exercise inside the house. I've used the Wii, but the last time I tried to get the board to work, it didn't. No, it wasn't the batteries. I changed them. It was something else. What that something is I don't know.

I've already mentioned the temptation of comfort food, along with the urge to bake cookies and cakes, and the overall need to eat and hibernate. I just don't want to gain weight if at all possible. It's just a matter of weeks before warmer weather moves back into the area.

So until I can kick start my regular outside walk, I'll just have to try my best to keep my diet in the moderate, healthy portions, try to drink lots of water, and try to keep my weight at status quo.

Stay strong! Hang in there!

Later, Peeps!
