Seriously, it’s days like this I hate being a woman… that ‘special visitor’ causing water retention – joy. And, really?? Now?? I’m so dang close to being in the 210’s!! Argh!
The weather took a hard left today, as well… Last week was gorgeous! This weekend was nice (even if it started to get a bit windy). And this morning? Woke up up a bunch of snow! (Gotta love Northern Nevada weather – they say… if you don’t like the weather? Just wait 5 minutes, it’ll change!) The good thing is that it gave me the perfect opportunity to take a photo of my pretty new jacket!
Even better, is that I realized that a vintage hat I bought a couple of years ago goes with it perfectly! Yay for wine colored wool!
Of course… snow out meant that the dogs were wanting nothing to do with going outside today… so, no walk for them. LOL I really don’t blame them much – they’re low to the ground, and I wouldn’t want my belly/chest being drug through the snow (or getting all wet). 🙂
So, I’ve found a really nice ‘treat’ to have – which helps me drink even more water… I put about 10 drops of the Root Beer flavored Stevia into my 1 liter water bottle. Yum!! I may try it with the Vanilla Creme flavor, too… I keep intending to pick up a bottle of club soda, for the Root Beer Stevia – but I forget every time I’m at the store! *sigh* Eventually, I’ll remember.
