Another dark, dank, dreary, bone chillingly cold day here in the heartland. I am starting a campaign to change the buzz words from "Global Warming" to what it really is..."Climate Change". And please, dear Lord, CHANGE it soon!!! I don't know how many more days of wearing socks I can stand. :) I see that the whole country is in the weather related black hole of winter. Well, except The Perfect Child and all her friends in Phoenix. I'm getting tired of talking to her and hearing that it's perfectly lovely there. "I think I'll bar-b-que tonight, Mom". Hell, I'm not even sure we could get the sliding glass door to the deck unfrozen long enough to get to the grill. And YES, I am, in fact, bitter. So there!!!
However, in light of the fact that it's too damned cold to go anywhere, I am taking this opportunity to get my act together. I'm organizing my recipes, figuring out calorie counts for old favorites, lightening them up when needed, and getting them all filed on the computer. I'm doing all of this in between bouts of feeling very sorry for my old, cold self. Oh Poor ME!!! At least I am being somewhat productive. I'm still working on my exercise plan as well. So today, reading Cooking Light magazine I came across an article (with pictures, which I always like) on exercises for core, strength and cardio. So now, I'll "audition" those and see if any make the final cut. I have to say, trying new things and varying the routines has been kinda fun, however, if I were to use all of the information I've collected, I'd never get my nap taken.....I'd be exercising for hours on end. :)
Well, I'm off to put on socks and wrap up in my Snuggie. Boy! Am I ever glad I gave everyone a Snuggie for Christmas....we need them. By the way, does my Snuggie make me look fat? Oh wait, I AM fat...never mind. Too early for my nap, so guess I'll exercise a bit.
