It Must be Spring!

It was 80 degrees yesterday, and it looks like more of the same today. Yayyy! Of course, it made me realize that I'm about as pasty white as a cadavor, and that I've gained just enough weight that my warm clothes make me look like the Pillsbury Doughboy. *sigh* I guess it's time to get off the really big downfall.....bread, pretzels, doughnuts, muffins, PASTA......and I don't think the pretzels help my COPD. Maybe it's the salt....I'm not sure....but my breathing is harder lately, more intense, and I was just fine until I started in on the carbs and pretzels. There must be a connection in there somewhere.

And the snow remains on the mountains. What a fantastic site to see when you're standing in the sunshine and the temperature is 80. I mean, honestly, you only see this stuff in the movies, people laying out by the pool in February with snowcapped mountains behind them.....I must be dreaming.

So my, not a New Year's resolution, just a resolution, is to get back on track with my diet and stop eating all this junk. I'm also going to start walking again, maybe join Curves again, maybe Butterfly Life, maybe even a senior citizens yoga group, SOMETHING! ANYTHING to get rid of the winter fat I've stored away. And I'm starting tomorrow.
