Okay, the first snow day was fun, the second day was okay but by today, I just wanted to get out of the house! My office opened at noon, but I faced a serious obstacle when I walked out the door.
Although it’s not a big hill, reversing backwards up a sheet of ice proved to be more than my car could handle. So I stayed home. And finally, around 2pm, Jason came home! He had been at work since Sunday afternoon, save for last night when they put him up in a nearby hotel. I was very happy to see him and he was also able to get my car up the driveway and onto the main road.
Looks like I will be going to work tomorrow. I’m just happy to get out of the house. I’m going a little bit stir crazy here.
Remember those muffins that I made the other day? Yeah, these.
Well, yesterday I ate five of them. And I was thinking that it wasn’t really a big deal until I figured out the calorie count for them. They each have 170ish calories. Perfectly decent for one muffin, but five? This, ladies and gentlemen, is why I can’t lose weight.
I have some issues with mindless snacking, especially when I’m bored. So I’m going to try to focus on meals. I want to have breakfast, lunch, mid-day snack, dinner and then maybe a late night snack and that’s it. I don’t know why that’s so hard for me, but it is. All of these little bites and tastes add up!
I just need to figure out a way to ignore the cravings. It’s especially bad in the office where there are little treats around. I’ll take any tips that anyone has to offer.
PS – I put in my tummy on facebook, but now I’m scared to tell anyone that it’s there. Baby steps, I guess! It’s just awkward that I’ve had this blog for almost three years and most of my family and some of my friends do not know about it. It’s like I’m leading a secret life.
