It's a Conspiracy!

I know I shouldn’t complain about our weather because many of the rest of you will have worse stories to tell than I would, but that being said – It’s COLD!! I mean come on! I live in the south for a reason. Of course one reason is that it’s the best place in the world to live, but the other is that it’s not supposed to be so cold and snowy. In truth we only had a tiny bit of snow but it’s not supposed to get above a high of 28 degrees all week and it’s to be very windy. If I wanted to live with weather like this I’d move to Yankee land!

I can tell you one thing, it’s not helping my diet any! I gained a tiny bit this week, which didn’t bring on a spanking thank heavens but come next Friday if I haven’t hit the goal Nick set my butt may not be so lucky. It’s not that the goal is a really difficult one it’s just that my recliner, my down throw, my warm laptop and the cat who usually piles on seems to sing a siren song to me. Heading to the gym or even climbing out of my chair to play the wii after a day teaching seems like such a chore. Meanwhile we’ve been eating out with friends and family and Mollie is baking. It’s a conspiracy I tell you! Of course my argument would hold more weight if I had gotten off my butt and exercised more this summer and fall, but still!

I’m pretty much ready for Christmas. All gifts are bought (but not a darn thing wrapped), the decorations are up; plans are made for where we’re going and when. Nick’s family Christmas Eve, my sister’s for late Christmas afternoon – she always makes a standing rib roast! And then the second week of January LJ and Collin will come in and the family is coming back here for another Christmas celebration. I like the season. We had the children’s program at church Sunday morning. Back when my kids were little I was in charge of the children’s ministry and I know how much works goes in to it. It was wonderful to just watch and not be in charge but I really miss my kids being a part of it.

Cross your fingers, I really want to make my goal by Friday. But it’s a week of going out to eat. Both kids and teachers bringing tons of food to school and the weather will be conspiring to lure me to my recliner. I hope I can fight it.

The colder weather does stink. You want warm comfort foods, not salads. Stay strong PK!

PK, I share your feelings, we are not supposed to have sub zero temperatures and blizzards here, but we have, I sympathise.
Love and warm hugs,
Paul.

You can do it PK.

Yes weather across the world is strange. As Paul said we've had some very cold days in the UK.

This time of the year is not a good time for dieting what with all the mince pies and Christmas cake. I'm waiting until the New Year before I start a diet.

Love,
Ronnie

I live in the south also, but obviously not far enough south. Its December and I am a lot me insulated than most people and I am FREEZING!. Like you when I get all I want is my warm clothes and a blanket to curl up in and snuggle.

good luck on your goal. I would like to say the same for my own goal of eating healthy but this week and next I will be baking cookies so chances are... :-)

Believe it or not I've found the secret to dieting!

If you can't breathe, you can't smell and if you can't smell, you can't taste. If you can't taste, food just doesn't appeal.

This advice comes first hand and although it's working for me, I don't highly recommend it.

Other than that, your plans sound great. I know you can't wait for the boys to come home!

HUGS!

Abby,
You've had a few other things on your plate. You'll get there.

FD,
He really just asked that I maintain but this hasn't been a good week at all. You're right just too many goodies around.

Katia,
You got that right! Of course I can't imagine ever WANTING a salad.

Paul,
The weather is just nuts! If this keeps up I'm going to have to start wearing PJ's again and I don't want to do that!

Ronnie,
I know this isn't the best time but if I'm not careful I'll gain big time over the holidays. I really want to avoid that!

Jean,
I'll sure enjoy it being over!!

Annie,
We have a lot in common. It's hard enough to try to make yourself workout and eat right in good warm weather - when it's cold, forget it!

Terps,
I guess this is the only time I'm glad I don't cook. Of course everyone else is so generous with their baking it's still not hard to over do it.

Grace,
I really am looking forward to the boy being here. As for your plan,I have no doubt it works and I appreciate all the research you're doing but I'm not ready to try it just yet. Thanks anyway.
