Okay, so having written everything down yesterday, I can see that I drank 40 oz. of water and ate less than 1200 calories.  I didn't eat much differently than any other day, so I'm really confused about why all the working out hasn't helped much.  In response to my post someone said maybe I wasn't really counting all my calories, or that maybe the scale wasn't dropping, but the body toning was more important.  However, I haven't lost any inches and still wear the same size clothing, so I'm not see much as far as changes are concerned, except for very SLIGHT toning of arms and legs.  

Yesterday we had this major snowstorm, and even though I was able to brave the snow yesterday morning to go to the gym, it doesn't look like I'm going to get out of here this morning.  Everything is frozen, our street isn't cleared and they're calling for more snow!!  I hardly made it home yesterday and had trouble getting into the garage because the car skidded in the slanted driveway because of the snow.  So glad I moved to TEXAS!!  At least I have weights here and I can do some weight training, isometrics, calisthenics and/or some ab exercises.  It's better than nothing.

Even though I HATE the cold, I want to get out and take some photos of the snow.  It IS beautiful, although I want it to be spring!  Everyone I met down here told me how unusual this weather has been this year, and that it hasn't been this bad in 40 years...I'm hoping it's not like this again for another 40.  I always wanted to live in Florida because I hate cold weather, but I'm here with my husband trying to make the best of it all.  Life is good and I appreciate everything I have.  I know that lots of people have struggles that are much worse than mine; I guess I've already been through the worst that life can offer and it's good to be on the healing side of things now.
