Thanksto the freak[ing]October Nor'easter that blew through Connecticut and other New England states this weekend, I and 800,000 other Connecticut residents are without power. I also have no heat or hot water.
This morning, the ambient temperature in my home was a balmy 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
Needless to say, I got dressed under the blankets today.
Thankfully, my office has power and a hot shower available to employees. The cafeteria has hot food. My wonderful, generous, fantastic, amazing and delightful father-in-law is carting a generator and space heater to our house this afternoon. With any luck, our house will be toasty warm tonight. Thank you, Jesus.
Notably, I did weigh myself this morning. However, because the house was so chillled, I did it with all of my winter clothes on. My weight was 205.5. Considering that I had on my heavy snow boots and all of my other wintry gear, I am thinking that I have probably lost weight this week. However, don't anticipate a weight and measurements update until I can comfortably manage to get on the scale au naturel.
I am keeping up with FitDay. It is my new thing, and I just love it. Do you know that you can input just about any activity that you do, and FitDay will give you an extra caloric deduct? (Now, that's not to say that I agree with the thermodynamic calories in - calories out principle. I'm just saying that it's cool.) Activities that you can choose from vary from working out on an elliptical machine, to going grocery shopping, to nookie. Yep. You heard me right (*snort*, *chortle*, *giggle*, *act like a preteen*). And get this - you can choose whether your nookie is "vigorous", merely "moderate activity", or limited to kissing and necking. LOfreakingL. I needed something like this to brighten my day.
I note this about FitDay because it is a true and amusing fact about FitDay, and because if you use FitDay you may not be aware that FitDay has this interesting function. Also, I just wanted to let you know because, if you look at my public profile, you will note what I've, uh, been up to over the weekend. *Snort*
