day twelve: hiccups and mishaps

Yep, I'm not good at daily updates :P And the last five days have been a bit crazy with life. I don't remember much of Friday, but Saturday I had to drive up to Parker and then the airport. On my way up to Parker, I spun out when road conditions changed (from wet to over an inch of snow, and apparently ice) in a matter of seconds. Thankfully I didn't hit anything, and it was at the only spot on the road where the shoulders are super wide, so I never left pavement either.

Needless to say, that stressed me out a little, and between the stress and having to continue the drive all the way to the airport, and then back to my sisters, well, the entire attempting to eat anything healthy went out the window. And then I stayed up there until the storm left and the road cleared (so, all of Sunday, drove home today). And it was a bit of a free-for-all as far as food went, because she didn't have much in the house to start with.

Now that I'm back home, I'll be getting back on track. I need to drink more water. According to my upline (who trained one of the winners of the Biggest Loser!), I need to drink 1/2 my body weight (pounds) in ounces of water per day. That's a much more reasonable amount than the formula my friend Michelle is using (which I would probably bloat up like crazy if I drank that much!).

So here's to getting back on track, and praying for no more freak snow storms when I have to travel. I would rather not go spinning like a top on the road again!

So glad to hear that you and your car survived relatively unscathed though. Spinouts are no fun--but especially when you hit something. :oP
