It's so cold!!

So cold here today!! -8 Celsius or -18 with the windchill!!

I was tempted to just do some Wii workouts but then I thought no I can dress really warm and still enjoy a walk :) Love talking to myself into things!

Today I also spent quite a bit of time planning my meals for the next week. It really does save me time and stress in the long run.

This week the stress from my housing situation should be resolved. Any day now they should be backtracking because they don't have a leg to stand on.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I'm meeting Jen for a coffee then I'll be off to meet my walking group. After that I'm off to a meeting. I also need to do my weight workout before I go out tomorrow. I think I'll be glad to get home and put my feet up by the end of the day :)

I've been finding quotes are inspiring and repeating them during the day helps to keep my mojo going. Today's is: focus, determination, persistence, clean eating and exercise will make it happen... just keep going! Love it.

I'm way behind on blog reading so I apologize if I haven't left comments lately but I am reading your blog.

Today's nosh:

Breakfast: egg, bacon, slice of Silver Hills Big 16 bread, Jen's home made apple butter and 5% cream for coffee

Lunch: leftover cilantro lime quinoa with chopped veggies, blueberries

Dinner: whole wheat spaghetti, classico 4 cheese alfredo sauce, parmesan cheese (doesn't look like much but it was sooooo good)

After dinner: glass of wine

  3. -8? Holy Sheesh! I thought our 23 degrees was bad... YIKES!

  4. It was freezing today and the next few days will be worse. You are very brave to bundle up and get out there. Usually I feel better when I talk myself into getting out there too!

  8. It doesn't get much better than homemade Apple Butter

  9. Wow, that is cold! I just thought our weather in the 50's was cold! Stay warm!

  10. We are having similar weather here. Tomorrow will be -15 without the windchill - brrrr
