oh, yes, it’s always with relief that i return to the gym in the winter. i gained 5 lbs in 3 weeks over the holidays, partly blamed on the prednisone injections, but also on out-of-control-ness. i always wonder if i can stop myself from the mindless cycle of eat, sit, eat, nap, eat…. but i do, at least for a while, in january. i returned to the Y and the treadmill on monday; re-activated my fitness pal and started logging my intake. it will take me about 3x as long to take off the lbs as it did to put them on, but i knew that when i was stuffing my face with cherry pie…..
my kindle froze just after christmas, so i called up the support folks and was happy that they quickly got me back up and reading. right now i’m mostly into steve martin’s “an object of beauty”; i should have bought the actual book, though, as it has pictures of the art to which he refers. might have to buy it for someone else…..
on new year’s day i planted amarylllis. by the time they bloom, i should be 3 lbs lighter (again).
