Mother Nature - Figure Out Your Issues!!!!!!

Dear Mother Nature – Figure out your issues!
My state, Maryland, gets two or three big snow storms a year. If that. It is usually raining and 50 degrees on Christmas. A few weeks ago, I was walking around in flip flops. I have still been running in shorts. And now they are saying we could see five inches of wet snow tomorrow. Ummmm what?! I have a lot of people to see and places to be this weekend!
First of all – I weighed myself yesterday. No loss, no gain. I suppose that isn’t good or bad. Sigh. I ate awfully last weekend and I didn’t run much this week, so I guess I get what I earned (or didn’t earn?)
This is shaping up to be a long, potentially “bad” for me but good weekend.
Tonight we are going out to dinner with my BF’s group of friends for his birthday. The healthiest thing I can find on this menu is a turkey sandwich. I am going to beg them to substitute some sort of veggie for a side. This is still a much healthier choice than last year’s birthday celebration: a keg and chickfila trays of many nuggets, amongst other things.
Tomorrow… oh… I SO hope they are wrong about this weather! They said it could start snowing overnight. I’m having PTSD flashbacks of the last snowstorm I drove in when I wrecked my car. I’m pretty scared. I have a haircut scheduled for lunchtime and I don’t really have any other time to do it before my friend’s wedding. BF and I have an annual Halloween party tomorrow night that is like THE party of the year. Lots of good drinks, food, fun people. I don’t want to miss it, but I’d also have to take the road I wrecked my car in the snow on last year to get there. Ughhh. The sun is out today and I hope that means the roads have been warm enough to let this stuff melt!!!!
Sunday is my BF’s birthday. He doesn’t know it yet, but I booked him a massage for the afternoon. I think he’ll be super surprised! We are going out to dinner Sunday night. Hopefully I won’t be too bad but I want to enjoy myself as well.
Monday, BF and I are heading “downeeocean hon” (in non-Baltimore speak – down to the ocean). We got a special hotel room and we’re going to play in the arcades and try to relax. I have to go to court on Tuesday down there for the speeding ticket I got in August, so we figured we’d make a little trip out of it. I’m also excited to not have to be at work, even though court kind of scares me. I have never been!
I can’t believe next week is November. My friend’s wedding, Thanksgiving, a lot of parties and activities planned. I only work one full week in November! I also really need to keep making progress through this upcoming season of holidays and celebrations. I feel like the Spark cookbook and the indoor gym are going to be big factors in that! I want to try to eat at home as much as possible as well as work out as much as possible so that I can enjoy the celebrations without too much guilt. ‘Tis the season!
I need to go find some gloves…
