Glorious Friday

It's a glorious Friday here in Texas - why, you ask? Well, because the state finally wised up, realized it was approaching winter, and had the decency to give us a cold front. So when I woke up this morning, it was around 40. Of course, it is supposed to be 70 by afternoon (sigh). And people wonder why they stay sick with colds and sinus problems. But hey, I was able to come home from work, open the windows and cool my house down. Totally saving the utility cost since the hubby and I like it COLD.

It's also a glorious Friday because tomorrow is the day Verizon comes and gives me FIOS. What is FIOS? Well, for anyone who doesn't know (or hasn't seen the commercials), FIOS is basically the second coming of the internet. It's a connection speed faster than lightening and it's slowly rolling out to different area around the country. I cannot wait!

In other news, my official weigh-in was this morning and I've lost another 3 pounds! So let's here it for no traveling and bringing your lunch. It's simply amazing what can happen if you have the ability to graze all day on healthy foods and drink some water.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Congrats on the weight loss. I went up 3 pounds this week (squinchy face) but I had a weird weekend and I'm back on track. Nonetheless, it feels wonderful to see the numbers on the scale come down. Keep at it!
For lunches, if you forget to pack a lunch or just don't feel like making one, I highly recommend the weight watchers "Smart Ones" lunches. I was surprised at how good they taste. If you find the portions a little small, you can always supplement with a salad.
In Nashville, we finally moved past the gawd awful heat about 3 weeks ago, and got our first truly hard freeze this week. It's been such a relief. On the plus side, we've had a delayed leaf turning season, so right now all of the trees are just glorious. On the negative side, we are still seriously rain deficient ... So for all that I am enjoying the gorgeous (finally) weather and the magnificent leaves, I'm really hoping that the second half of November and most of December brings rain. Preferably at a slow steady pace with enough breaks between fronts so that nothing gets oversaturated. (Be careful what I wish for ... replenishing rain, NOT floods!)

Congrats on the weight loss. Also, yay cold fronts. Fall has finally arrived in Texas.

Hi Pink - thanks for the congrats! Weight loss sucks big time, so it's nice to see progress for all the suffering. :) I haven't tried the WW frozen dinners, but I'll keep that in mind. I usually keep a supply of Lean Cusine around and some of those aren't bad either.

Hi Jaye - Yeah on Fall! And thanks for the congrats. Guess I'll see you at the DARA Christmas breakfast where we MAY be able to wear a sweater.

Congrats on the weight loss!!!

I don't like the cold. I want to go somewhere warm for the winter. I need to win the lottery or something.

And blazing, lightning fast Internet? Wow. I just got regular boring old high speed a few weeks ago. It'll be years before the new generation will make it here.

Congrats on the weight loss. I think that I might have a low fat cook book for you. Check it out when you come over for Thanksgiving. Have a great weekend. Mom
