Northwestern BC is getting slapped in the face by a massive snowstorm. I couldn’t get my car out of the driveway even if I wanted to. What’s nice was, no work today. I just have to keep busy so cabin fever doesn’t set in.
I work an hour away from home and yesterday, the snow was getting pretty bad so I left work 3 hours early and caught a ride with my boyfriend. This morning I woke up and the highway advisory had been updated and was the same so I was ok with staying at home. Also, Feb 9 is a holiday so I in fact have a 4 day weekend!
My boyfriend, myself and 4 friends were planning to spend the weekend two hours away in a small town for some skiing. Now I don’t skii, but I was to do it with the bunch just for one. I was more than ok with spending some time in the lodge with a good book and hot cocoa (or wine, let’s be honest). But with this insane weather none of that will be happening. Boo.
Let me tell you what I’ve been up to lately.
Jan 26 a friend I purchase the Fit Girl Guide and we started their 28 Day Challenge. Right now I’m on Week 2 Day 5 of the challenge and I’ve seen progress. Maybe I’ll post the pics here further into the challenge…
What’s tough right now is I am stuck inside my house (thankfully with power…) with nowhere to go and I feel like I want to eat everything yknow? It’s howling wind outside, snow is blowing everywhere, you can barely see anything and I’m on the couch bundled in a blanket and all I can think to do is snack. Snack snack snack. I will do everything in my power to eat my meals in an appropriate portion and fashion and I pray sometime today I will do my half hour workout.
I’ll be honest, so far today all I’ve had is popcorn. A moderate portion of popcorn but nonetheless… popcorn.
I’ve been wearing Rocco under a toque for the entirety of this week to be perfectly honest. I feel like he’s been getting long.. being inside all day I’ll probably have a really good and thorough wash day. here’s hoping!
Man I want chips…
Yes, Zambia in 8 weeks. It’s going to be amazing. I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a long time and it’s finally happening. This trip is going to show me a lot about myself, where I come from and those I call family. I’m so excited to meet cousins and aunts and uncles! It’s going to be quite the reunion.
I really thought I had more to say than that…..
