Hurricane Sandy

All I can say is Thank God we made it safely through the storm!  Let me tell you that it was scary to say the least.  The wind and the rains were horrendous.  My prayers go out to all of those that were affected by the storm.  There is some major damage out there.  I just saw on tv where one family had a tree destroy their house and two cars.  Its so sad.  Its going to take awhile for people to recover from this.  Mother Nature is really something else.
The New Jersey shore has been hit relly hard.  The pictures are devastating.  Words cannot express my feelings when I look at the pictures.
I just wanted to make a quick post to express my feelings.  I hope everyone stays safe!

Cold, Damp, and Dreary

I can't believe how cold it is today!!!  Well I guess its not really cold but Fall is definitely here.  Its dreary and damp too....which I do not like!  This is the time of the year when I seem to constantly put lotion on my hands.  I cannot stand that dry feeling.  I probably lotion my hands every 5 to 10 minutes!
Anyway, I have been really conscious of what I am eating lately.  I have been tracking everything and it seems to be helping with the choices that I am making.  I just came back from a trip to Whole Foods.  I only needed to pick up a couple of things, like oatmeal, milk, salad, green juice and some yogurt.  Oh, and I also got some non fat frozen yogurt.  I am going to use that as my treat when the rest of the family is eating ice cream.
Last week I went to the gym three times and this week I am on track to do the same.  So far I have been warming up by walking on the treadmill and then I ride the stationary bike.  I am still easing myself back into the routine so I have not done any weights yet.  I would also like to work my way back up to going five times a week.
I have been drinking plenty of water and I have also been incorporating my protein shakes into my daily food intake.  Last week I used all of my points plus the weekly points that I get.  I am only weighing myself on Wednesdays.  So, that means tomorrow is a weigh-in day.  I can only hope that I am down some!
Time to go pick up the little one!  Until next time, stay strong and eat healthy.
