I have strayed from off path!!!
I have really let go of my ownership since Christmas!!!
At least then I was trying. I was sparking and holding myself accountable. But I really started slacking off.
Then, slowly but inevitably I began to gain weight. A pound here, a pound there.
And it has really added up.
I have decided that all ends today!!!
We have been snowed in pretty much for a week. I have left the house all in all, 3 times since Valentines Day.
Our water has been off for 4 days now, the county has either shut the water off to help preserve while they are fixing frozen waterlines and frozen pumps.
and tonight our temps are to fall again to below zero!!!
So, what have I done???
Cook and eat!!!
Eat and cook!!!

Baked a cake, and made homemade cornbread and buttermilk biscuits and made peanut butter fudge!!!
But it is painful to say it out loud.
So, this morning I had yogurt and fruit and today for lunch I plan to have some broth and cottage cheese and fruit.
I am trying to slowly get my stomach used to less food and introduce veggies and fruit more.
I fear my vitamin d has plummetted but I wont have blood work again until May.
So, I have increased my daily dose to 15,000iu.
I havent worked out any, unless you count tredging thru the snow outside to the natural spring that runs off the hill behind the house.
One of the only things I like about living here!!
The road, another story altogether.
Live and learn, next winter, I will be more prepared, water will be caught and collected in a reserve and low fat foods will be on hand for prep.
And my car will be taken to the roadway so I can get off the hill, even if it is just to go drive around or go into some stores to browse or visit a friend for a cuppa!!!
Too much isolation for me.
Honey is still off work on comp and is supposed to go back to the doctor tomorrow.
He is hoping to get the pins out of his finger.
Even still he might not be able to go back to work for another week due to the bad road conditions.
I am going stir crazy and having someone sit and stare me in the face all day is even worse.
I need sunshine and exercise and good roads.

    I hear you! it was below zero here this morning again..... but at least we have blue skies and I think that bright thing in the sky is the sun! Hang in there, the weather will change, the sun will shine and the roads will improve and you WILL get out of the house! Now the exercise part - well - that one is up to you!

    It could be worse, at least you have internet and can spark!

    Sending you some of our sunshine!
