Amanda, I hope you stay safe and sound and that disruptions of electricity are moderate. I think this storm reminds us all that electricity is a gift we shouldn't take for granted. I have been thinking of getting one of those emergency radios that has a hand crank and a cell phone charger port on it just in case. After reading about someone's snowpocylpse story from last winter on the east coast, it gave me a good reason to have an emergency preparedness plan in place. Hope all is well.
AFM, had a retreat with lots of salty food - I sewed a bunch of mosquito net enclosures for an African mission project and some valence curtains to brighten up my classroom. Ah, my weight - 247.2 pounds. I will be back to my lower salt self next week.
133.8 Just not coming off this time. Last 2-3 weeks I've had a bum knee. I think doing squats is what's doing it. After I've done squats I have knee pain for the next day or two. Don't know what's going on. Maybe I'm not giving it enough time to heal between jog days. I have been doing the HIIT and even when I run my knee hurts. Any suggestions?
207.5 Finally lost the 15 lbs I gained from nursing. Yay! Next goal is to lose the 15 lbs I gained while pregnant with my ds.
Exercise plan for week:
Tues- Hockey class ?/walking
Wed- 1 hour hockey- no classes because of Halloween
Fri-League hockey game
Sat- Family outing
Sun- 1 hour hockey class
Okay, I gained a pound, so I am back up to 276. But.... I lost 1/2 inch from my waist. My leggins are getting pretty loose in the waist. I don't know how many times I had to pull them back up when i was at my United Methodist Women conference this last weekend.
I only got 1 workout in this weekend, due to the conference. I lifted weights in the hotel's exercise room for 30 minutes. Didn't eat very healthy this last weekend at all. I guess cheesecake doesn't count as a health food .
Gonna get back on track this week. I plan on going to the gym and working on the exercise bike and lifting weights for an hour this afternoon. Had a mandarin oranges fruit cup and 2 graham crackers for breakfast this morning. Drinking some water as I write.

Monday weigh in:152.2.
Oh well, it's to be expected when I hosted DS's birthday party yesterday. Despite that the pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes were very low in sugar and 20 g of carbs per cupcake, the wheat in them did not agree with my stomach. DS enjoyed them. I still am expected to make "brain" skull red velvet cupcakes for halloween. I'm the "baker" of the family. I will make them for the big kids here (aka DBF, his dad, and his niece. lol) but it sucks that I can't join along with them. Such torture...
BUT I guess I can always share one with DBF. lol.
And at least I can join DS in eating homemade sunbutter cups. (He's peanut/treenut allergic)
