I've already been out helping hubby dig out the driveway, but I only lasted about 5 minutes because I had the old crappy snow shovel that is now curled into a U shape and pretty useless. The one who's going to do the brunt of the work gets the good shovel. Today, with the 14 inches or so of wet heavy snow we got, that's hubby. I also got a few pictures that hopefully blogger will let me upload. It is beautiful - having been raised in Florida, snow still amazes and delights me. Until it gets muddy, slushy and ugly of course. But to stand out in the garage while it's snowing is intoxicating to me - so much activity in the air - so silent.
On a slightly somber note, the last 2 days I got pretty fuzzy with point counting and snacking - as in I stopped tracking once I started snacking. This is the first since I began WWPP and I'm bound and determined to get back on track, with tracking AND eating today. I was talking to one of my closest friends last night who didn't know I'd started WW, and she's going to start this Saturday by coming with me. I'm really excited to have a buddy, not to mention my across the street neighbor, do this. We both have some similar issues around food and food addiction, so the mini support group (as opposed to the HUGE support of my blog world) will be great. She does not know about my blog or the blog world, but she did ask where I always get so many great recipes! But I think I'm going to stay anonymous with my local folks about the blog. Do I really need people to know my weight and the degree of my nuttiness when it comes to eating?!!
Snowy weather means soup, so I'm off to make a big pot of ham and bean soup. I posted on Facebook last night about the temptation to bake and eat sweets that being snowed in brings. I vow I will not give in to the temptation to whip up chocolate chip cookies, brownies, lemon squares or any other sweet confection. Because I know full well that I am not a one and done kind of person. One cookie? Puhleeeeeze. One brownie? Why bother. So I will continue my clementine consumption with a sprinkling of apple and banana if necessary. Stay warm if you're in the north. Chill out if you're in the south. And have a great day wherever you are.
