This week was killer with the winter storm.. I think I felt the most stressed and less motivated to work out and I really wanted to eat a lot. I did break a way from my diet some... thankfully, I don't hardly have any of that junk food in the house...

I have never been so stressed between the power, the bitter freezing cold and the pipes. We are in the thawing out process, but I am still worried about my pipes and my washing machine... This storm made me want to move somewhere, where it really doesn't snow at all. We got around 3 inches where I live. I forgot how bright it is outside with the snow. I know people else where deal with far worse. I know we were overdue for a really bad storm...and this has been the worst in years..compounded by all the other issues outside of the storm.

Tomorrow, I think I can take the dog for a walk in the afternoon... the sidewalk is improving... I think 90% of it will be gone by tomorrow afternoon. I know he really wants to go. I kind of do too...I have barely been outside since last Friday afternoon. Of course there are other issues, but the temperatures are warming backup, for which I am so grateful.

Here are some pictures

    I guess Florida would do? lol...We used to get snow every year, now it is every now and then. I live in the high desert, Southern California. You're doing great with your goals. I like the drawing of your dog. Hope this week goes much better for you. Fingers crossed for your pipes!

    Good job on your goals -- we do what we can! Glad you have power again and not too much snow and it's starting to melt. I love that pic of your puppers in his sweater. He looks like he was a bit chilly!
