Maybe you noticed (or maybe you didn't!) that I missed my Weight Watchers Wednesday post this week. Arrggh. You see, Kansas City got hit with Snowpocalypse 2014 this week. About a foot of snow fell between mid-morning Tuesday and early morning Wednesday. Holy Moly, it was a lot of snow! I went in to work Tuesday because my remote token wasn't working, got that fixed and then went home to work the rest of the day. The children were out of school, of course. Even Craig stayed home Tuesday night because it was still coming down and it just didn't seem smart to drive into work. I'm starting to really hate February in Kansas City. This is something like 3 of the past 4 years in February that we've gotten hit with a big snow event. I'm over it.

Based on the forecasted temps for the next week, none of that snow is going anywhere either. Which also means I am forced to remain inside for runs, should I decide to run (hello, treadmill!)
Winter, be gone!! Seriously.

So, since I missed weight watchers wednesday post, I can let you know that on January 30, I did weigh in and was down 0.8 pounds. This made me happy because it meant I was officially under 170 and I haven't been under that in about 5 years!
The sad news is that my week since that weigh-in was not very good. I lost my focus with regard to my eating and then, I ended up getting sick.
No, I wasn't so sick that I needed to stay in bed or anything. But I felt yucky. My head has been hurting for about 4 days now, and until yesterday, nothing tasted good except diet coke and chips. Seriously.
The good news is that I have been drinking only water yesterday and today and am back on track eating and tracking-wise. I missed workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I am getting those back on track, too. *sigh* I guess a big part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to get back at it even when things go a bit awry.
