Steady as She Goes

Yesterday was weigh-in day, and let me tell you, was it ever a miserable one! I'm speaking weather-wise. It rained all day, and because of the time change it was basically completely dark when I left the office. Because a lot of the streets in Boston tilt, any time it rains there is standing water on the side of the street, right near the sidewalk. If you don't know any better, you think that where you are about to step is flat with only a very shallow puddle of water, but in reality you end up pluging your foot ankle-deep into cold water. Because I wore flats yesterday, the hems of my pants were pretty much dragging the ground so that by the time I got home my pants legs were soaked.

Enough about the weather. Let's talk about my weigh-in. When I stepped on the scale I found that my weight was exactly the same as it was last week. That's what the bastard scale at home told me, too, but you know how untrustworthy it has proven itself to be. I'm glad that my lack of significant exercise didn't cause me to gain. This cold that I have has been hanging on to me with a death grip, but I think I'm almost out of the woods. I'm planning to go to yoga class tomorrow morning to kick-start my exercise again and also to continue to rid myself of toxins.


  1. So Boston got all the rain we were supposed to get yesterday. We had bright sunshine! I tell you, you need that sunshine D3 or echinacea or sambucus to raise your immunity so you're not sick all winter. Feel better, sweetie.

  2. Considering how sick you've been, not gaining is an achievment. That cold has been hanging on too long pet, it may be time to see a Doctor. You've had 2 colds in a row and you may have a secondary bacterial infection in your sinuses or bronchi. And if you do, antibiotics will kill those germs dead and you can get back to excercising. Have a good weekend dear xxx

  3. Girl, you did well with all you've been batting! Congrats on not gaining!

    I need to bring my lyin' scale out from under the bed.

  4. I brought my lyin scale out..nothing more need be said.
