Can't. Get. Warm.

Today's high: 17 degrees. Sleet? Check. Snow? Check.

Tomorrow's high: 15 degrees. More Sleet? Check. More Snow? Check.

When it's this cold, I just can't get warm, especially my feet. It doesn't matter how many sweatshirts or pairs of socks I put on, I am always cold. The only thing I can do to warm up is to hop in the shower for a few minutes and let the warm water and steam work their magic. However, lots of showers + cold, dry air = super dry skin. Agh! It's a never ending cycle of pain and frustration. Plus, using so much hot water makes my already enormous gas bill even worse.

Needless to say, I didn't make it out for a run today. However, Mondays are usually a day of rest for me, so no big deal. When it's this cold, making it out of the house is a victory in itself - and that I did do. I make no promises for tomorrow though.

Also, it looks like light boxes run about $100-$150. On the one hand, that's expensive for my broke-can't find a job in this economy-law student self. On the other, my sanity is invaluable. I'm still considering.

Day 2 in WeekTarget23
PB&J w/4oz. milk-419
More PB-3-7

Definitely dipped into my 35 "extra" points today, but that's okay. Overall, I was happy with my food choices today. Lots of fresh vegetables (bell peppers, mushrooms, and lettuce in the thai and tomatoes in the tacos) and lean proteins (chicken in the thai and soy crumbles in the tacos). And lots of peanut butter. Yum.

That does not sound fun. At all. I am feeling guilty for complaining about 50 degrees, today.
