Spring is Just Around the Corner



I can't wait for the warmer temperatures.  February was too cold for me with temps dropping into the 50's and 60's and night temps in the high 30's and 40's ........brrrrrrr.....I'm such a wimp since moving to Arizona.    :)  I will be glad when it's hot enough to hit the pool again ....I sooooooo need the exercise.


February may have been a short month, but it was not a good month for me - thankfully, it's over.   I pretty much blew off the diet most of the month of Feb., likely because I was stuck inside too much with the colder temps (ha, good excuse)!  I also lost one of my helpers since she always needed to take too much time off (last minute) with a daughter in high school and a grandchild she seemed to have most of the time.   I had to put my foot down and insist that if she still wanted to work two days a week for 4 hr. at a time, she needed to plan her other activities around that or I couldn't use her when I couldn't depend on her.  Carmen is still coming one day a week, but drives from Scottsdale (an hr. each way), and it's costing me too much for her drive time, so we're back between a rock and a hard place.  I'm researching adult day care places, but running into a problem with the numerous deficits that Gary has and them not wanting to deal with it.  Nursing homes that are somewhat affordable are way too far away, so options are limited.


Gary is sleeping in this morning, and I am not in any hurry to wake him.  He's going to want to go out for pancakes as he's been cooped up in here long enough, but I dread taking him out because it's so much work for me and hard on my back these days.   Plus, I don't want to be tempted to eat out and start off the month of March with blowing the diet again.  I still have March and half of April to lose 20 lb. to reach my goal of minus 50 by our 50th anniversary in April.   I'll get there, it's just a matter of getting over the hurdles that pop up along the way.  Think spring....think warmer temps.....think swimming for exercise....think bikini (omg, did I really say that at my age)?    lol
