Well, it is Wednesday

And welcome to it. Before turning in last night the news was all about how we (the region) have suffered record (for this point in November) low temperatures and now the S word and how it would affect the morning commute.

Well, the pooch and I were outside about forty minutes ago and low and behold, no snow. On one hand I feel great because who wants to trudge to work in the snow, get all wet and have to pack extra socks and some indoor shoes for sitting for subsequent eight hours?

Not his girl. Not this morning anyway. So, thank you weather forecasters for being wrong and weather pattern for changing course or whatever happened. However, on the other hand, I was kind of looking forward to the snow because, well, trudging. Extra effort to walk meant using extra energy which meant calorie burning.

It is coming. Just not today. (Or not this morning).

Welcoming this Wednesday morning is a scale date. I decided on November 5th when I got on the scale at it read a few ticks beyond 260 and I would 1. weigh myself every other Wednesday 2. Work to have the needle move in the  away from the 260 mark (in the lower register, just to be clear) and 3. To try to sustain the efforts for longer than a month, longer than 2, longer even than 3.

Oddly enough, the image I found this morning for this post is exactly depicts what my scale read this morning.

One day at a time, in two week blocks. Welcome to Wednesday. Welcome snow, whenever you arrive.    



  1. Good for you on the scale movement. And in the right direction! Woot!

    I love your attitude about snow and calorie reduction. I'll have to remember that when I am trudging to or from the bus this winter. Always looking for that damned bright side...

    1. Woot!

      Well, that is unless it is "Buffalo" snow...WOW! In that case, no trudging, no moving at all, if I can help it. My heart goes out to those folks.

      Yeah, attitude is half the battle--more than half, in fact. I battle it daily. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.

  2. Wow !!!!! That is huge!!!! Poms poms and a few back flips happening here.

    I love the snow but I am definitely less active when it comes. I suppose if I gave up the snow blower for a shovel, but that would just be silly. I tend toward snow shoes for walking in the woods and building snow men for an upper body workout. Buffalo snow? Go back to bed and pull the covers over your head.


Hi! Your visit is much appreciated.
