So, it's March.  Wow, February sort of disappeared!  I kind of feel like I've disappeared from here, it's been so long since I posted. :(  But I have been doing decently on keeping up on reading, though commenting has been a bit sporadic.  Last week I was tired a lot, because I worked more than usual, one day starting at 4am.

***Shout out to my awesome comment leavers: Starving ArtistMich<3 BreeMarcusTracy.  Yes, Starving Artist, I am with you, I'm ready for warmer weather also.  Sorry Mich. ;)  I think you right that you are in the minority rooting for winter to stick around, at least of people I know.  Marcus, I agree, if it's going to be cold it might as well be snowy.  My issue isn't with the snow really, so much as it is with the cold part (& the bad roads that can result).

My weight... well, it's not great.  As of yesterday I was around my last met goal, so at least it's come down from some points it was at in February, but not down to the lowest it had been that month or for the year.  Hoping March will be better!  Mostly I need to quit eating crap.  It seems I either eat a bunch of junk or else a couple of things that are super-junk.

I decided I'm going to try to give up soda for 10 days.  Which might not seem like much, but it's a small step that should be accomplishable (is that a word? it is now!).  I gave up soda for a season of track one year in high school.  It's not that I drink a lot of soda really either, but since it's not healthy anyways, it can't hurt, right?  So today is day 1 of that.  Anyone is welcome to join my small goal or make a 10 day goal of their own (if you are or already are doing something similar, let me know in the comments!).

Spring is supposed to be here in 3 weeks, by calendar anyways.  Living here, you never know when spring will actually come & when it's here to stay.  We got a taste a couple weeks ago, a bunch of snow melted & it was decently warm & so lovely.  At least since getting cold again it's been sunny (after we got more snow dumped on us to replace some of the melted, lol).  [The pictures are just random ones I pulled from Google.]

I found a gas station that has a case of Krispy Kreme donuts!  I know this may seem like odd good news, but for the longest while I haven't been able to find that.  But the grocery store has boxes of them, which I have fortunately managed to avoid buying because I know I won't be able to keep them long without devouring ALL of them.  So now I can occasionally indulge in ONE without having more there taunting me.  Plus, there are prolly less calories in them then the donuts I've been getting from the grocery store case, simply based on size (& sometimes filling/topping).  :)

I hope you all are doing fabulously well & fantastic & all that jazz!  <3 you all & hope to hear from you soon!

I gave up soda for lent a couple years ago (40 days and 40 nights). I was really addicted to it though, so it was really hard the first couple of weeks. Now I hardly drink it at all, two years later!

Giving up soda is the best! I mean it's hard, but after a few days your skin just starts practically glowing!

I wish it was coming into spring here. We've totally missed out on summer and now it's looking like skipping autumn and moving straight to winter.

Don't work too hard! Four am start, that is harsh!

giving up soda is a great idea, it's not good for you :)

Krispy Kreme donuts are amazing, I can't find them were I live (Canada) which is a good thing. We have a chain called Tim Hortons but it's gone downhill the last few years, only thing that's decent is coffee (which I should give up!)
