No dog sitting after all

March 23rd, 2011 at 06:34 am

I was supposed to dog sit the rest of this week, but the owners canceled their trip. I'm relieved. All told, I'd really rather be home, even if their house is much nicer! I will lose some income, but still, I'm not sorry. I'm such a homebody.

It got cold again yesterday and I turned on the heated mattress pad again. I'm so happy I got that. I'm also happy I got the flat iron -- now I never worry about what my hair will look like in the morning because I can always straighten it out. Sometimes material things DO make you happy!

It's Spring Break, and even though I have to work, it's kind of relaxing to work with the students gone. And it is certainly nice to find a parking place with no trouble. I do wish the weather were more springlike. Though I suppose RAIN is springlike, isn't it?

I've been closely tracking my diet on myfitnesspal.com, along with my kids and niece and nephew. I have recently started to enter my whole day's plan at the beginning at the day. Then I feel obligated to follow it. I save the results at the end of the day, making any adjustments where I didn't follow through as planned. I have found it's so much easier to track BEFORE I eat -- sometimes doing it after the fact is difficult because you didn't pay attention to the amount, or the type of measurement (i.e. cups vs. ounces). It also helps me to think about what I need to use up, rather than make impulsive decisions. And I can make better decisions about balancing my diet. It's kind of like paying yourself first!

    What a good idea,CB, about the planning! I'd be the same way. Enjoy the break--if not our weather!

    I love my pad too! I have a preheat setting that I turn on about 8:00 pm every night so my bed is toasty warm when I get in. Then I usually turn it off!

    I'm tempted to get one of those heated matress pads. I used to have one, but DH didn't like it. Now they make ones with controls on both sides so I could have my half warm and he could be the ice cube he prefers to be.
