Day 48/Ice Storm
Tuesday, February 17, 2015
So, last night was... not fun. It was a 'wintery mix' of rain and ice that froze and covered everything in ice. The power went out right after I put the kids to bed. I usually have a box fan going for the white noise that it makes, so I was having a hard time sleeping to begin with, then the tree branches started falling and the transformer started popping... my night was anything but restful! My anxiety, of course, had me worrying about trees falling on the house. The backyard is bad, a few downed trees, but no where near what my imagination had it. Thank goodness!
Power came back on about 30 minutes ago and the house was about 50 degrees. Brrr! Then it went back off. Now it is back on again and I hope it stays there! I have a friend up the road whose power is out, but they have a working fire place. Aunt in town's power is out and is not supposed to be back on till noon tomorrow!!! She has a gas fire place, but it's not warming the house very well, it's one of those that is mainly for looks.
I'm still waiting for my Juice Plus to come in, and I'm trying my best to eat well, but when you can't get to the grocery store, you eat what you can. I managed to get the stuff to make juice in my juicer, and am having that now. I've got the stuff to make posole, and it is on the stove. I'm hoping to have some nice hot posole with fresh made tortillas tonight!
My DD has a dental appointment today at one and I think we may have to try to risk going. Next week is supposed to be just as bad as this week if not worse. I'm not happy about that at all, my anxiety about even thinking about getting in the car and going somewhere is through the roof! But I don't want her to have a tooth ache. May ask DH to drive us, but don't think he'll be able to because of work (he works from home a few days a week).
It will soon be the 50th day of the New Year, and the start of my journey. I feel like a failure, I've lost no weight. I'm going to redouble my efforts and JP or no I'm going to work out and eat as well as I can.
